This Beautiful 3000 sq ft home lies in the middle of a very private 86 acres in the historic Catskills region of New York. The nearest residence is at least a 1/2 mile away. The house lies at the end of a long driveway that curves up the mountain to reveal the home only near its end which is centered on the property for total privacy.
The tranquility and peaceful silence here is astonishing. Much of the property is wooded with well laid out trails for hiking or even for cross country skiing. 100 year old fieldstone rock walls abound on this property which also boasts two 3 acre and four large 5 acre fields near the residence with gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains.
The private secluded pool is 40' by 20' and goes from 3' to 11' at its deepest end. It is immaculate and well maintained with loungers for sunbathing, umbrella etc... Right next to the house is a beautiful 1-1/2 acre pond to spend evenings next to relaxing, enjoying the sunset or just stargazing late into the evening. There is even a fieldstone bon-fire pit for relaxing over an open fire near the house!
The property has been maintained by the owner along with the help of the NYS forestry department to ensure a perfect setting for all natural wildlife indigenous to the area. Don't be surprised to see the VERY rare Bluebird and colorful Wood ducks making there homes in and around the numerous bird houses and the spring fed pond near the house. Deer and Turkeys are always around as well as Blue Heron and the occasional Bald Eagle. Red hawk families circle in the rising evening air every day throughout the summer and at night the owls sound off year round. The fertile pond is filled with frogs, turtles and several species of fish a young child or a child at heart adult) would love to see and explore!
The house has beautiful hardwood floors throughout and the large 16ft high ceiling sunroom/great room fills with sunlight on 3 sides with 6 floor to ceiling windows and skylights. This room, which also has the sleeper couch, has a 56 inch HD LCD screen for a great movie watching experience.

The Den or 'WInter Room' we like to call it, is furnished with gorgeous leather furniture, a Vermont Casting Woodstove ( available only in autumn/winter), cow skin rugs and large windows affording a view of the pool and surrounding fields.
This home is close to some of the well known skiing centers in the Catskills and also very close to world class fly-fishing and all types of outdoor adventures. In the fall, the foliage is breathtaking.
