Property description

Less than two and a half hours from NYC, ten minutes from Belleayre Ski Center, and 40 minutes from historic Woodstock, this is the perfect mountain retreat.

On 31 private acres, this two-story house has three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, a large wraparound deck and spacious open floor plan perfect for entertaining. Downstairs there's a bedroom with king bed and bathroom with jacuzzi tub. There are two bedrooms upstairs, one with a king bed and the other with a queen bed, as well as an additional full bathroom.

The house also features cathedral ceilings, wood-burning fireplace, an entertainment loft with 50' Plasma TV with DishTV, and WiFi throughout. Sliding glass doors lead to the outside wraparound deck with a full size gas grill. Floor to ceiling windows offer views of Halcott Mountain and the surrounding Catskill mountains. Two couches (not pull-out) and floor pillows provide additional sleeping accommodations if needed.

Outside the house, there is a huge stone patio nestled alongside the pond, with lounge chairs, floating dock, and a fire pit, perfect for campfire songs and roasting marshmallows!.

The owner is an amateur chef and the fully-stocked kitchen includes everything from a KitchenAid Mixer and Cuisinart to appliances such as a dishwasher, and washer/dryer.

This house is a short drive from Phoenicia, Woodstock, Andes, and Margaretville for shopping, dining, antiquing, skiing and river tubing. Trailways bus to NYC is located in nearby Fleischmanns.

For skiing, the house is centrally located and close to Belleayre, Hunter Mountain, Windham, and Plattekill.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I am a professional artist and this is my private home. I enjoy entertaining friends here, and welcoming them into this peaceful retreat from the city.

Why the Owner Chose Fleischmanns, NY, USA:
I have always been drawn to the Catskill Mountains, and after many years of looking for the perfect home I finally found it. The previous owners designed and built this house themselves and it shows in every detail, and that's why I bought it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Pictures do not do justice to this house and the property. You have to see it to believe it.
