Every effort has been made to create an environment in which to relax and enjoy the surrounding 15 acres of nature and peacefulness. The house has three bedrooms and two full baths. An open floor plan between the kitchen, dining room and living room make entertaining easy and enjoyable. A TV room upstairs allows for the separation of conversation and entertaining downstairs. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to cook any gourmet feast.The wrap around deck features spectacular views in every direction, a new Weber gas grill, and an outdoor table are there for an incredible candle-lit evening to dine alfresco.
The upstairs bathroom includes an extra large, beautifully stone-tiled shower, with premium fixtures and an overhead skylight for a truly luxurious experience. The downstairs bathroom has a deep claw-foot tub for a nice long soothing soak. Full size beds come with European down feather beds for extra comfort to ensure a good night's rest. Queen is a Posturpedic pillow top.
The 15 acre property includes natural meadows and woods with extra wide walking paths that meander throughout the property allowing for a leisurely evening stroll or a great place for kids to play hide-n-seek or chase for hours on end. In addition, there is a regulation size croquet field great for any outdoors games, including a natural stone patio and plenty of Adirondack chairs for lounging and relaxing. The grounds have been professionally landscaped and are maintained to provide a natural habitat for native plants and wildlife. The setting is very private, extremely quiet and located on a dead-end road. The few neighboring houses can not to be seen.

                              Located 2-1/2 hours from the George Washington Bridge, the house sits on top of a mountain ridge with 15+ mile views within the Watershed Area of New York City. Close by is the Catskill State Park with endless trails for great hiking. The peacefulness and quiet along with the abundant nature and wildlife are the main attractions and beauty of the area. Relax, hike, golf, shop for antiques, or try fly fishing for fresh trout in one of the spring fed mountain streams. There are several quaint small towns nearby to explore, shop and have lunch. A must-see is Opus 40, one man's incredible life earth-work sculpture.

                               

                              Owner info

                              About the owner: My partner and I purchased this house in 1997 as a weekend escape from Manhattan. We have worked hard on it over the years to create a home, a place where we could go to unwind and relax. Due to work we left New York and currently reside in Atlanta. Since it is difficult for us to get to the Catskills we have decided to rent our home for the first time. This is not a typical party house rental, it is and continues to be home for us. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we have, and still do. There is a caretaker for the house nearby who looks over the premises and is nearby to handle any needs that may arise.

                              Why the Owner Chose Roxbury:
                              The 15 acre property includes natural meadows and woods with extra wide walking paths that meander throughout the property allowing for a leisurely evening stroll or a great place for kids to play hide-n-seek or chase for hours on end. In addition, there is a regulation size croquet field great for any outdoors games, including a natural stone patio and plenty of Adirondack chairs for lounging and relaxing. The grounds have been professionally landscaped and are maintained to provide a natural habitat for native plants and wildlife. The setting is very private, extremely quiet and located on a dead-end road. The few neighboring houses can not to be seen.
