I am a professional artist and this is my home when I'm not away on business. I enjoy entertaining friends here, and welcoming them into this peaceful retreat from the city.
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.
Pictures do not do justice to this house and the property. You have to see it to believe it.
