                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  Why the Owner Chose Margaretville:
                  We live in northern New Jersey and it only takes us 2 hours to get to the house. Margaretville offers a real 'downtown' with nice homes, many shops, and restaurants.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  You can feel the tension melt away as you get closer to the house. The feeling of privacy and peace is amazing. As you pull down the long drive the view to the pond and mountains opens up and it's all yours. We have two black labs that seem to live in the pond as soon as we arrive at the property. You can do as little or as much as you like, activities abound. A fire at night in the fire pit with a full moon, a million stars, and the mountains silhouetted and reflected in the pond is one of my favorites.
