              Our property borders on the Monhonk Preserve which includes 2500 wilderness acres, hiking trails and the Mohonk Mountain House and its many recreational facilities. Immediately contiguous is the Minnewaska Preserve: 'Minnewaska is situated on the dramatic Shawangunk Mountain ridge, which rises more than 2,000 feet above sea level and is surrounded by rugged, rocky terrrain. The park features numerous waterfalls, three crystalline sky lakes, dense hardwood forests, incising sheer cliffs and ledges opening to beautiful views, clear streams cut into valleys, world-class rock climbing and 35 miles of carriageways and 25 miles of footpaths on which to bike, walk, hike and simply enjoy. And, all this within an hour and a half drive from New York City.'


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1984

              About the owner: Charles and Katharine are educators who spend summer's on the water and enjoy sharing their country house with guests who will appreciate its charm and decor.

              Why the Owner Chose New Paltz:
              We chose New Paltz because it is a charming university town with arts and other amenities, mountains and the Monhonk Preserve only 75 miles from the city. It is one of the best weekend locations within an easy communte from New York; the traffic is far lighter than the infamous Long Island Expressway. If you find mountains as appealing as the ocean, and don't want to pay Hampton's prices, this is the place for you.

              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
              We love walking, riding bikes, taking our dog for a run off leash on conveniently located trails. Side trips to Woodstock or Rhinebeck, visiting local antique stores, galleries, and entertainment at SUNY New Paltz and the Unison Arts Center are also a treat. Not to mention the great local fish market (Gadeleto's) and source of organic meat (Jack's) and fresh, locally grown fruit and veggies at Wallkill View Farm.
