This magnificent property of 114 acres of trees, hills and meadows encircle the house which fronts a four and half acre lake surrounded by landscaped gardens. There is also a one acre pond with its own island. Streams and waterfalls run throughout the property. Sunbathe, row a boat or fish during the day --light a campfire or take a night walk and listen to the frogs and crickets. You can hike the 114 acres or the adjoining 650 acre NYC forest preserve.
The lake is suitable for swimming. The area around the dock has a sandy bottom allowing easy access to the water without having to wade through a mud bottom. There is a raft in the middle of the lake which you can swim to or sun bathe on.
A row boat and canoe is available for your use. Fishing is permitted. The lake contains large and smallmouth bass perch and crappies. The small 1 acre pond is home to our 'pet' rainbow trout. We call them our 'pets' as we feed them. It's something that the our guests enjoy doing once a day.

The kitchen has new cabinets, appliances and granite counter tops. The wall between the kitchen and living room was removed, creating a great room that is at once larger yet more involving.
