Damascus house description

Only 2 hours from Manhattan nested between the Catskills and Pocono's, this spectacular home is located on a private and gated 144 acre 'one of a kind' park like setting and has a private mile of Delaware River waterfront.

This breathtaking property is perfect for quaint memorable family gatherings, and activities such as fly fishing retreats.

If you can pull yourself away, there are several quaint local towns (Callicoon, Narrowsburg and Jeffersonville, NY) or (Damascus and Tyler Hill, PA) within a 10 minute drive for antiques, groceries, farmers markets, boutiques, golfing, tennis, canoeing, kayaking, skiing, snow shoe, sleigh riding, bowling, movie theater, Fort Delaware, fine dining and The Bethel Woods Arts Center (original Woodstock site) featuring well know performances.

Activities are limitless! Hiking, biking, horseback riding, swimming, playgrounds, and true Fly Fishing waters (Guides available). The most difficult part of your stay will be leaving paradise.


Paradise: Imagine being surrounded by a mile of Delaware River shore wrapping around you on a 144 acres of endless views, open hay fields, wooded trails to roam and a private mile of waterfront to relax and play! There is even a quaint private playground on the property for kids. Unforgettable wildlife that surrounds you. Eagles flying above, deer roaming the meadows and you may even see a reindeer...we did!

Activities: Game Room on lower level with ping pong, pool table and large screen TV.

Campfires with fire wood and cooking grill at a special campsite available

Playground, sand box and swing set near by on property
Guided Fishing available (reservations required)

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2005

                              About the owner: David and Desiree grew up locally both connected to family farms and continue to raise their family and farm in Damascus. They co-own and direct several well established specialty manufacturing and related service companies associated with television, film, corporate, public spaces and museums. We both wandered this property as teenagers not together but separately. Ironically, after marriage, we had an odd opportunity to purchase this beautiful farm which was once all cornfields as we remember back when we were kids and now lush hay fields. We still walk the land reminiscing with each other how special it was for both of us back then and now. It's a special moment as you continue through the gate and come around the corner...Its hard to describe. We decided to purchase the property with dear friends of ours and constructed a magnificent custom passive solar timber frame home for them doing much of the work ourselves. Our friends since have moved out west giving us first option to keep the land intact but decided not to move into this home because our current home and stables are very special and hand crafted from a design done in high school. When we travel with our four children, we always seek accommodations that are most like home and clean. We manage, care for and clean this home ourselves as a family, with care we would want and with the goal you will never forget your stay at Waterside. Many Guests say 'that our words and pictures can't explain this place' We take great pride in the hand craftsmanship, its cleanliness and presentation. In the winter...we even try to take time to welcome you a warm glow in the fireplace upon your arrival as we do in our own home after a long day on the road.

                              Why the Owner Chose Damascus:
                              Waterside is a 'one of a kind' equisite hand crafted Passive Solar Timber Frame Log Home on gated 145 prestine acres with a mile of private Delaware River Front. Most guests cant imagine it until they arrive. Many of guests often tell us, 'your words pictures DO NOT do this home justice'. One guest figured out it was like having a home all by itself in the middle of the town of Hoboken along the river.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Comfort, amazing kitchen, massive cozy fireplace, radiant heat and warm feet, endless views, seclusion, privacy, wildlife, the fish stories, paddling home, freedom...most guests have plans but never leave the front gate after check in....
