This one-of-a-kind property is truly special. A beautiful house built on 16 acres of Catskills forest is a quiet retreat, but also is a great place to work from home. At the end of the day, you can take a swim in your own private pond or walk through the maple and oak-filled forest to the creek that bubbles through the property near a hemlock grove. The property abounds with wildlife.
The house has three bedrooms with the master bedroom on the upper floor with a magnificent view of the valley and plenty of room for a king bed, desk, wardrobe, armchair, and other furniture. A full bathroom completes the top floor. The other two bedrooms are on the main floor. The second bedroom currently contains a queen bed with room for a desk and dresser. The third bedroom contains two bunk beds. There is ample closet space, a hall closet, and the nearby bathroom is outfitted with a bathtub. The basement offers plenty of storage and potential for more.
The living room has a large window that allows you to look out across the rolling hills that descended into the valley below and at the pond where sunlight shimmers across the surface. The lush wood interiors provide a comfortable ambience and plenty of space for couches and armchairs. A dining room and kitchen provide places to gather, but in the warmer months the adjoining screened porch will be the place you want to spend the most time. A deck off the kitchen also holds a grill and picnic table.
The nearby town of Andes is a true treasure. This warm and welcoming community has an organic market, hotel/restaurant, comfy diner, hip coffee shop and cidery, community pool, used book and record store, and numerous other shops overflowing with local flavor. There is also a dairy store and the nearby area is dotted with farm stands where you can obtain locally-grown produce, dairy, and maple syrup.
This is also a great winter getaway. Andes is about 25 minutes away from Belleayre ski center and two other ski centers are close by. Horseback riding is also plentiful in the area.
