Lovingly restored 1803 farmhouse on six acres nestled between the Ashokan Reservoir and High Point Mountain in the lower Catskills. Conveniently located within easy driving distance of popular Catskill towns, ski resorts, and an abundance of great outdoor activities.
This farmhouse is true nooks and crannies house, full of rustic charm and warmth yet abounding with modern comforts. It was one of very first houses built in the area and is on a quiet country road. Its original occupants owned and farmed over 200 acres. The stone core of the house was built in 1803, and the wood-framed portions were added on in the 1840s.
It has been restored with many of its special historic features intact: hand-hewn beams across the ceiling, wide plank floors, antique furniture, original windows with wavy glass, and laid stone walls.
The house has four bedrooms, two full baths, and a fully equipped kitchen. There are TWO separate fireplaces: one in the sitting room off of the kitchen and the other in the living room.
The large stone patio in the rear overlooks an expansive and open two-acre yard. Beyond that, we have four additional private acres of woodland if you want to take a stroll among the trees.
This house is in the center of it all. It is close to the Ashokan Reservoir, Mohonk Preserve, Minnewaska State Park, the Ulster County Rail Trail, and hiking trails such as Ashokan High Point and Giant Ledge. For those looking to cool off in the summer, Peekamoose Blue Hole swimming hole is a short drive away. Skiers will find it's the ideal hub for hitting the slopes at Belleayre Ski Center or Hunter Mountain.
