Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My wife and I have owned this property for 10years. It is our vacation home. We live in New York City. I am in real estate and my wife runs a program called KIds n Comedy, where we teach youngsters how to write and perform stand up comedy.

Why the Owner Chose Ghent, NY, USA:
The surroundings are beautiful,, it is peaceful and quiet and the house is well attended. There's room to cook, we have a grill, and the pool and deck are wonderful. We have wifi and enhanced cell service. If you are looking for beauty, privacy, in a vacation spot with plenty to do in the surrounding area, this is a terrific spot and an enjoyable vacation. Lots of restaurants in Chatham, great Barrington, Lenox, etc.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
the views are spectacular. We face southeast towards the Taconic Mountains that are blued by midday sun. Behind us is a hill, green with oaks and maples and wild flowers. there's a garden at the hills base, cared for by JoAnn, my wife. You will just love the pool and deck.
