Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: We're from the city and love the quick escape and fantastic outdoor activities the Catskill region offers. We purchased the land in the late '90's and worked hard to make our dream escape become a reality. My husband is a fantastic builder and we spared no expense to make this one of the best vacation homes in the Hunter/Windham area. It brings us tremendous joy to share with others our beautiful home away from home!
Why the Owner Chose Hunter Mountain:
After years of searching for the perfect spot to build our dream escape, we instantly fell in love with the seclusion of Sun Set Park yet the close proximity to all the things we love to do on the mountain top which is ski, golf, hike, bike, kayak & fish. The nightlife and dining options are numerous also!
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Our home is really unlike anything offered in the Hunter area and our attention to detail is what sets us apart. Unique lights fixtures, one of kind antiques, framed local scenic photography, antique skis, Persian rugs, fine fabrics & linens, beautiful pottery, wood carvings, various works of art...right down to the cabinetry knobs, even the door bell...its' all been well thought out. Ultimately creating an environment that seamlessly blends modern comfort with a rustic feel. Couple this with walls of glass & the surrounding forest - you'll feel one with nature, but in total, cozy comfort.
