This quintessential western Catskills farmhouse, set on a stunning 138+ acre lot, has been lovingly upgraded and maintained for over 25 years by the current owners, and is ready to fulfill the vision of upstate life for a new generation. The house and barns were originally built in the late 1920s, before being completely overhauled in the mid-1990s, with an emphasis on efficiency, comfort, and stylish function.
The exterior of the home features cedar shake siding, a freshly painted wrap-around deck, the towering hand built (locally sourced fieldstone) chimney, and an enormous front porch from which to look out over the fields and distant hills. Once inside, the space is vibrant and inviting, with plenty of sunlight streaming in through the Anderson windows and French doors. The main living space combines the dining area and living/family room, and features the floor-to-ceiling wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen boasts granite counters and thoughtfully custom-designed cabinetry. Stunning southern yellow pine floors carry through the entire house. The first floor is rounded out by a full bath and a storage room that would be great for a laundry or mudroom. At the top of the stairway, there is an ample landing area for a reading room or home office. The first two generously sized bedrooms share a full bath featuring a jacuzzi tub, and the primary bedroom features views out over the farm and an en-suite bathroom. In addition, there is a truly fantastic (insulated and fully finished) walk-up attic which would be ideal for extra sleeping quarters, a recreation room, or studio space. All of this comes packed into a square farmhouse footprint with poured concrete foundation and well-lit, dry, full basement.
The property was originally an active dairy farm, and the barn is updated and ready to spring back into utilization for any number of functions. The original multi-story barn has updated wiring and lights, and the Quonset addition features a freshly painted dairy section, as well as an enormous open upper level. The hourglass pond is stocked with Rainbow Trout, and is a great place to soak in the serenity of the setting - life on a quiet town-maintained gravel road, and ownership of all the land within sight. In addition, there is a seasonal stream feeding a tiered beaver pond with overflow stream meandering away to the southeast corner, generous amount of active hayfield (over 50 acres) plenty of woods to enjoy (~75 acres mixed hardwood/scrub forest), and even adjoins a 30 acre parcel of NYC water supply land. This property truly has a little bit of everything, all located a short drive from Delhi, 30 minutes to Oneonta, and only 2:45 to the GWB.
