Callicoon farmhouse description

Under 2 Hours from NYC! Completely updated farmhouse nestled between the quaint villages of Callicoon and Jeffersonville in the area known as 'The Beechwoods'. The home is situated on over 20 acres of land featuring pastures, woods, and hills with long-range views, a frog pond, and completely surrounded by original stone walls. A family-friendly second home in the country, under two hours away from New York City, this 1850s Victorian farmhouse served as a boarding house during the civil war. It has transitioned from housing Union soldiers to now serving as a homestead to a young family.

The home comfortably sleeps twelve in its seven bedrooms, including two master suites:

Master 1: Queen bed w/bath ensuite
Master 2: Double bed w/bath ensuite
Bedroom 3: Double bed
Bedroom 4: 2 twin beds
Bedroom 5: 2 twin beds
Bedroom 6: twin size day bed
Bedroom 7: Currently configured as an office with a full sized pull out sofa.
The kitchen has a 6 burner Wolf gas range and a formal dining room which seats ten. There is DirectTv in the living room as well as in the master bedroom. The area has very strong cell service including Verizon LTE.

For younger guests, there is an onsite playground, placed on a natural pad of moss, in an area of the yard shaded by 100 year old pines.There is also a working dairy farm next door, and a horse farm across the street for many animal sightings. For adults, there is a brand new chef's kitchen, a wrap around porch with long range views, as well as hiking trails which cut across many acres of grassy lawn, pastures, woods, ponds and hills. An ideal location for writers, artists, nature lovers, families, or anyone who wants to get away from it all for a quiet retreat.

The Beechwoods area is home to the Villa Roma Resort, whose many amenities are available year round. The charming villages of Callicoon and Jeffersonville are each less than five miles away, and offer a great selection of dining and shopping options, including Callicoon Wine and Cheese, Callicoon's year round Farmer's Market, Peck's Market, Matthews on Main, the 1906 Restaurant, Ted's Restaurant, the Callicoon Theater, Mullally's Pub, and several antique shops. The Delaware River flows right by Callicoon, and there are many swimming holes and river rafting operators nearby. The Fort Delaware Museum is also nearby.

Beyond the immediate vicinity, the home is only 15-20 minutes from world class fishing, the Monticello Raceway (and casino), as well as the Bethel Woods Performing Arts Center where many concerts take place for both adults and children. There is also the Woodstock Festival Museum onsite.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: We are a married couple with two young daughters who live in New York City and work in entertainment. After we were married in 2006 we wanted to find a place in the country that we could renovate to ultimately house our eventual family. We spend much of the summer and fall weekends here and love the community and the area. There are many second home owners here, many of whom are artists, actors, writers and other members of New York's creative class. There are also quite a few celebrities who live here, but don't ask us where they live, we won't tell you:)

                  Why the Owner Chose Callicoon:
                  When we toured this house, we walked into the dining room and saw a massive table that could easily seat 16-18 people or so. We both come from large families and could immediately see many generations of our combined families enjoying holidays together here - so we jumped at the opportunity. We also loved the history of the property, especially the fact that it served as a boarding house during the civil war. That coupled with the views and the overall peace that it provides us, and we knew that it was our home.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                  Sitting on the front porch, you can see miles of rolling hills and farms. During the Fall, you can pick apples right off the trees in our backyard orchard. There is no better place around for leaf-peepers. The fall colors are breathtaking.
