Property description

Just a 1 hr/45 min drive from Manhattan, this charming 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom rustic cottage nestled on 2.5 wooded acres in Sullivan County retains all the character of it’s 1940’s origins while still satisfying urban-weekender expectations with a clean & artful recent renovation.

Set at the lush-fern edge of a pristine, trout-stocked lake, the gentle waterfall rush under the covered bridge just off the back deck will soothe your troubles away in between the swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, skiing & tennis playing – yes, work on that back-hand in a mixed doubles match (deer vs people) or just catch some rays as an observer on the private regulation size court.

The property also features a 2 car garage, hi-speed DSL, phone, TV-DVD only, large open living area with fireplace, open eat-in kitchen, rec room with pool table & outdoor patio facing the water with gas grille. Other accessible amenities include 1 rowboat (seat 5 max), 1 canoe, 2 kayaks & 1 fishing rod.

Nearby activities & points of interest abound, including the Delaware River with rafting & canoeing (7 min drive), NJ High Point National Park, Bethel Woods Arts Center, Kadampa Meditation Center, Malibu Dude Ranch with horseback riding/rodeos & an endless list of quaint towns with unique, boutique main streets offering area goods, crafts, organic foods, art galleries & a diverse array of restaurant cuisine, both fine-dining & casual.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Glen Spey, NY, USA:
This property is located as part of the historical 3,000 acres known as Brookwood Farms upon which Brookwood Manor --a distinctive Tudor-style mansion-- was built along with it's architectural companion boat house --the only original structure remaining today of a by gone era. Some of the history of this unique area --once the playground of the ultra New York City rich at the turn of the 20th Century-- can be enjoyed here: http://sandpond.org

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Lovely back deck with BBQ overlooking an historic property, lakeside access with kayaks and fishing plus a tennis court all 10 minutes from the Delaware River for more river rafting fun.
