I am a marketing consultant and have lived most of my life in major cities on both coasts. I have an MBA and currently split my time between my lake home in the Catskills and San Francisco. The perfect blend of country and city living.

Robin W purchased this house in 2002

I lived in New York City and shortly after 911, decided I wanted a weekend retreat to spend quality time with friends and family and enjoy the outdoors. A friend invited me to her weekend home across the river to go hiking for the weekend. The next week I rented a house on this lake for the winter and bought my house in 2002. It was a very basic chalet with little landscaping when I purchased it. Over the years I renovated the original house, added an addition, built a new dock and rear deck, added a 20' x 30' enclosed organic garden and landscaped the lakefront. Six years ago I decided to sell my apartment in New York city and moved here full time for quality of life. The design and decor is unique and reflective of my personality: warm, inviting and comfortable with an artistic flair. While I've come to realize that it's a little isolating to be here full-time all year, it's an amazing retreat and gathering place which I just adore.

I have always loved being on the water and liked that Sleepy Hollow not only offers a beautifully maintained lake, but tons of amenities within the community and close proximity to a huge range of arts, culture, shopping and dining in charming nearby towns to the north, east, south and west. It's also hard to find an affordable, waterfront location that offers a wide variety of four-season, outdoor recreation. The best part is that it is easily commutable to NYC by train or car for weekends.

What cinched this specific property for me is that it has 300' of water frontage and feels very private in the backyard, both of which are rare for lake communities. I saw the potential to turn this house into a unique retreat to bring friends and family together to create great memories.
