Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: My husband and I love this home and the property. Having two children who are very sporty it is hard for us to get there as previously. We believe a home is better with people in it and enjoying it. We do still use it and it is a home to us but time right now does not allow us to enjoy it the way we like to.

Why the Owner Chose Austerlitz, NY, USA:
This is a wonderful special property. It is fully appointed with all you need to enjoy a great and special weekend. Our caretake is right down the street which makes it nice for you to know if you have questions etc.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
The setting is truly uniques and the pond is magnificent. It is serene, welcoming, and the feeling of the home and the property is very special. We fell in love with it the minute we saw it. It is special in the winter, summer and of course fall foliage in Sept/October
