              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: I live in NYC and built a weekend house in Austerlitz, NY after falling in love with the area in 2006. I love the City, but crave a simpler country life to charge my batteries from time to time. I had 40 virgin acres on a ridge line and had to figure out how to get infrastructure put in place before I could start construction. I finally got the house built in 2012, after owning the land for six years. It has truly been a labor of love and I hope to share its beauty with others.

              Why the Owner Chose Austerlitz:
              The house is perched atop a hill in the middle of the woods all by itself. The rolling hills and views of the Catskill Mountains to the West and Berkshire Mountains to the East are breath taking. The locally produced foods are amazing. There are blueberry festivals, county fairs, chili cook offs, live performances and other local events every weekend in the summer, great hiking close and skiing all winter. It's also very easy to have guests meet you as the Albany airport and Hudson train station are both close. Local towns offer rustic to sophisticated dining options, but staying home and cooking in the big kitchen or outdoor grill is sometimes hard to beat.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              You can watch the sun rise and sunsets bath the Catskills in a pink light from the back deck with a coffee or wine in hand and not have to see another person for days (if you don't want to). Wild turkey, deer, fox and other wild life stroll by the house daily. It's so quiet, you'll only hear the wind, nature and the occasional passing plane.
