Rarely does a property come along that embodies the spirit and magic of what that Catskills offers - truly A Catskill Mountain Classic. Located in the desirable, highly sought after Canada Hollow Association in Andes, this property offers what the discriminating buyer is looking for - a beautiful custom home, complete privacy, gorgeous mountain views, a spring fed pond and much more.
THE HOME - The approach to this custom Alta Log Home is just as beautiful as the stunning location. Driving up a beautiful country road into the understated elegance of the Canada Hollow Association and through a canopy of trees, the house is sited to take in the beautiful mountain views. The porte-cochère provides a welcoming entrance to this 3 bedroom, 4 bath home. The open living plan is ideal for family gatherings, parties and contributes to the relaxed Catskill Mountain lifestyle. The living room features cathedral ceilings, a stone fireplace with large log mantle, wood floors and access to the wrap around deck. The kitchen is designed for those who like to cook offering granite counter tops, a center island, plenty of storage and open beamed ceilings. The main floor en-suite master bedroom has access to the deck and plenty of room for relaxation. At the top of the second floor landing is a writers nook that is also an ideal place to take in the mountain views. Both upstairs bedrooms have open beamed ceilings that give them character and interest and are separated by a full bathroom. In the lowest level there is a large entertainment space with a bar, tin ceilings and a walk out access to the yard. On this level there is also a half bath and a bonus room that adds to the flexibility of the lower level.
The wrap around deck adds to the flexibility for enjoyment of the gorgeous natural surroundings. On both sides of the deck is a covered area ideal for dining al fresco or an afternoon card game. The two story detached 2 car garage is perfect for storing all your outdoor toys, those who like to tinker and even has a wood burning stove. The upstairs of the garage is a great place for a studio, a play room, storage or whatever you can imagine. A whimsical garden outbuilding adds to the overall appeal of the property.
THE LAND - Simply put - the land is beautiful. A combination of open fields, fern filled forest, large moss covered boulders, the land has dimension and unparalleled beauty. At the base of the property is Weeping Willow Pond - a large spring fed pond with a small dock - a place of peace and serenity. There is a small stream that runs through the property which adds to its list of desirable qualities. Bordered on one side by protected DEP land adds to the lasting value of this property.
Close to skiing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, the charming Catskill villages of Andes and Margaretville and about 2.5 hours from NYC the location is both accessible yet private. For additional information please contact Jeffrey Ashton via text or phone at 973-650-0035 or email@example.com
