Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I am a mother to a spunky 10 yr old, a Brooklyn based chef with a catering business and an yoga instructor. Have owned this home since 2002 and have rented it successfully for the last 11 yrs. This home was a diamond in the rough when I found it and for 3 years since been a labor of love to convert it into this beautiful home that I am able to share with travelers from around the world. I feel blessed to own this treasure and provide memorable experiences for our guests and on occasion be able to escape the city with my daughter and enjoy the home for ourselves and our family.

Why the Owner Chose Bethel:
The house is less than 2 hrs from NY, easy access by Shortline bus from Port Authority to Monticello, great for groups of 8 or less. This house is on 10 acres of private hillside property, overlooking the magnificent Catskills mountains. Close to neat little towns like Jeffersonville, Calicoon, Harrisburg and Livingston Manor. Winter fun with skiing, sledding, snowboarding. It feels like you've traveled a 1000 miles away and have retreated into a tranquil place with nothing but magnificent nature all around. Bird watch, and gaze at the lovely shimmering Swan Lake, sit on the deck , wrap yourself in the big open skies and enjoy the silence. Private heated pool in the summer, great hiking trails, water recreation activities near by, working farms, farmers markets, antiquing, and Nature, nature, nature.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
This property is unique in its construction, style and ideally located within 2 hrs of the city. There is plenty of acreage for children and pets to run and play freely, and away from streets making it safe. The modern construction, and up to date amenities& decorations set in a rural area makes it that much more unique. The house has been decorated by great designers, and art work by owner and artist community local and from Brooklyn Private fenced in full size in ground pool with over the top views. Stocked kitchen with spices and utensils and pots/pans. Serving ware and place settings for 8-10. OUtdoor bbq grill. Patio seating for 8-10.
