                  We are nestled in a wooded area on the side of a mountain. First and foremost you are residing in an historical train station professionally design and restored with over the top creativity. Enjoy this HGTV style home first hand, as in the show 'You LIve in a What?'.

                  There is the 25' high tunnel burrowed into the side of the mountain in front of our station . This, tunnel is about 1 mile long. This where the locomotives chugged through to reach the station. This feat of engineering allowed the first train passage through the steep grade of the mountains to allow passage to between NYC and Canada.

                  In the autumn you are immersed in color and the beauty of nature. There are local orchards for apple picking and warm cider donuts with apple cider. Stay home and enjoy the original train stations two sided wood fireplace as you relax in the ballroom or enjoy dinner in the kitchen. Walk over the Hudson on the foot bridge, hike the many mountains available or take one of the many rail/bike paths.

                  When snow blankets the station and 10-20' icicles form at the tunnels entrance you can grab your sled and head over the the park just down the road and sled down the parks hill. If you are a snowboarder or skier there is a variety of skiing resorts all within close proximity.

                  We are within a mile of the Basher Kill known for the it's thriving population of eagles and other wildlife.

                  There is hunting in a variety of forms throughout the fall, winter and various forms of fishing within close proximity as well.

                  The town park within a two minute walking distance has tennis courts, baseball field, pool, mini golf and basketball court. Also there are many planned kayaking courses in the rivers nearby.

                  Want to hit the New York City for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, a Broadway show, or whatever peeks your interest? The depot is within 10 minutes of the Metro North train that can take you to Grand Central or within walking distance to a bus you could take into Port Authority in NYC.

                  Within ten minutes is bustling Middletown which has every retail store, variety of restaurants, cinemas and activities that you could want.

                  Like history? There are many Civil War reenactments at several sites complete with firing artillary throughout the year in local towns. Pack a picnic and watch the battle. West Point Military Academy is within 35 minutes with ongoing public events.

                  Don't miss the original Woodstock location of the 1969 outdoor concert which is now the Bethel Woods Center. Only 30 minutes away, you could have a tailgate picnic prior to the show. Followed by a tour of the museum that explains the events of the 60's and appeals to all ages. A live concert is heard as you watch the sun set.

                  The largest outlet center in the world, Woodbury Commons, is a 25 minutes drive.

                  A small historical airport is within 2 miles where you can take a two seater plan ride or glider up to view the incredible Hudson Valley.

                  Yes, outdoor drive-in theaters still do exist, complete with greasy popcorn which is only a five minute drive.

                  Orange County Choppers has there facility 20 minutes away.

                  The Roosevelt mansions and many other wealthy families have homes along the Hudson you can tour.

                  These are just a few of the many delights to enjoy while you are here at the O&W train station.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1986

                  About the owner: My husband and I grew up in the Boston area and moved to the city to attend Cooper Union. I also attended Pratt Institute. We have had our small interior design contracting company for 30 years and have three adult children two of which are married. My husband and I had wonderful family holidays here. We are now enjoying a change of season with our children older and looking to spend our vacations in other peoples unique homes.

                  Why the Owner Chose Wurtsboro:
                  When do you get to live in a creative, professionally designed space let alone a train station? You can stay in the comfort of this home which is entertaining in itself or venture out for a diverse selection of activities for all ages.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  This home was an abandon concrete shell of history. It was our vision of it's potential that captivated us. There was the mission style parapet wall front facade, 8' thick concrete walls and the four archways openings to the waiting room that travelers would pass through as they bought their tickets and jumped aboard the next train. The train loaded with NYC passengers looking to relax in the cool upstate mountains in the summer or head to the city for the day.
