Facing its own lake, surrounded by lush green woodlands on over twenty-eight acres, this historic farmhouse is located in the Sullivan County region of the Catskills, just over two hours north of Manhattan.
Built in the early 20th century, the clapboard and gabled construction is a romantic reminder of early American homesteads and a classic example of the area’s rural architectural past.
Following extensive restorations, the property still retains the best of its original period charm and detail, with an airy and sunny open-plan ground floor, relaxing living and dining spaces, and a country kitchen with views of the lake.
The main house includes an en suite master bedroom and two additional double rooms designed with whimsical touches ideal for kids or the young at heart.
The separate guest house includes two double bedrooms that sleep up to four guests.
Cheerful touches mingle with mid-century modern furnishings, one-of-a-kind pieces and welcoming warmth.
The property is perfect for lazy afternoons or adventure, where you can fire up the BBQ, go for a dip in the lake or the hot tub, play a little tennis, or wander down the trail right off of the house to explore.
Chic and simple with a friendly, down to earth attitude, this is modern Americana that never goes out of style.
Wifi throughout, cable TV, kitchen and bath essentials, laundry facilities, ping pong, foosball, board games, children’s books and toys, hot tub, sauna, lockbox, parking.
