Property description

Beautiful 4 bed, 4.5 bath, 5,000 sq ft Farm House built by an award winning designer/builder on over 5+ serene acres in the Chapin Estate. The grand scale entry with vaulted ceilings impresses from the moment you walk in yet maintains a warm and cozy feeling with dual staircases on either side of the wood burning stove. The main level flows easily between the huge eat-in country kitchen, formal dining room, living room with floor to ceiling stone fireplace and master bedroom with en-suite bath featuring a gorgeous claw foot tub. Upstairs is a second master bedroom also with an en-suite bath and on the opposite side another 2 bedrooms plus bath. On the lower level there's an enormous playroom, guest room/office and work room plus full bath. Every detail lends itself to the charm of an old Farm House with reclaimed wood used to make the staircases, sliding barn doors, wide plank hardwood floors, Plantation Shutters, unique light fixtures and old-fashioned radiators. Amenities include access to Swinging Bridge and Toronto Reservoirs, hiking, members only Lake Club with pool (open until labor day), gym, kayaks and mountain bikes. The house is equipped with sleds, gas BBQ, trampoline and inflatable pool. Whether it's fresh air and a slower pace you crave, or an opportunity to hang with friends/family, you will feel right at home in this home. Less than 2 hours from mid-town Manhattan and just minutes from Bethel Woods Center for the Arts.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We bought the home from Catskill Farms and for years have enjoyed the home year-round. In addition, to relaxing at the home, we enjoy the country lifestyle that this area embraces; farmer's markets, many wild animals, fresh air, no-noise pollution etc. A terrific reprieve from New York City. We have successfully cooked big dinners and hosted our family and friends throughout the years.

Why the Owner Chose Bethel:
We fell in love with the home the minute we saw it. We bought it as a place for us to retreat away from the city. As it's only 100 miles from NYC, the drive is always manageable. Because it is also a newer build, our time is spent enjoying the property, community and surrounding towns, not maintaining the home.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Each home within the community, The Chapin Estate, is nestled on a minimum of 5 acres affording every home tremendous privacy. The restaurants, lakes and nearby entertainment are just minutes away but the home is totally peaceful. You will see stars year-round, the fireflies in the summer, the leaves change color in the fall and snow covered trees in the winter. Year-round, this is a special place to be. We are also three miles from Bethel Woods, restaurants on White Lake and Swinging Bridge and Toronto Reservoirs.
