Enter the private world of “SOLITUDE LODGE”, an exquisite example of “AMERICAN FOURSQUARE” (Craftsman, aka - Arts and Crafts) architecture in the picturesque Catskill Mountains. This rare jewel has been meticulously RESTORED and features all ORIGINAL BRASS hardware, windows with original storm windows and many other fine period details. The OAK BUILT-IN cabinets in the kitchen, living room, dining room and butler pantry and the newly refinished HARDWOOD OAK FLOORS throughout, are a few of many examples of the fine craftsmanship of this home. Forest scenery can be enjoyed from the large RIVER ROCK LINED FRONT PORCH and adjoining portico or through the many original glass windows. The outdoor dining area under a lovely PERGOLA, overlooking the FIRE PIT and three TIERED GARDEN, assure beautiful views of many starry nights.
This 2160 square foot, 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom 1906 Catskill manor has an additional 1080 square foot basement with an open floor plan that allows for tons of storage and includes a laundry room and second bathroom that total 3240 square feet. There is also a beautiful 99 square foot sun-room providing a grand total of 3388 square feet of space in the home. The renovated GAMBREL BARN has been lovingly converted into a two story 812 square foot ARTIST LOFT and recreation room but could easily be used as a garage or easily converted to additional living or rental space. In total, Solitude offers 4151 square feet of usable space.
Solitude is located in the Hamlet of Arkville, which is part of the Town of Middletown and includes the well known Margaretville, all situated in the majestic Catskill Mountains that are part of "Catskill Park", a 700,000 acre NY State, Forest Preserve.
Solitude is within walking distance of town, hiking trails, the post office, a deli, a pizza parlor, several fine dining restaurants, the historic train and some of the best trout fishing streams in the Country. You can take a short stroll and have breakfast or dinner at the various (farm to table) restaurants Arkville / Margaretville offer or go for drinks and live music at The Union Grove Distillery. There's even a boutique retro clothing store, a nature conservancy and an art gallery a few minutes walk from home. Solitude Lodge is also close to the supermarket, farm stands, Belleayre Ski mountain, hiking trails, reservoir and many other local attractions that make for a convenient yet secluded retreat. And the best part is Solitude is close enough to town to have the best of both worlds.
Return to simplicity, honesty and beauty and find your Catskill Arts and Crafts Treasure.
