Enjoy country living just minutes to town in this cozy, updated former schoolhouse. Set on 2.65 acres, the property features the home itself, a 24x36 horse barn with workshop space and overhang, a whimsical playhouse/cabin up on the hill, and a convenient detached single car garage with additional storage space, all snuggled at the foot of a Catskill hill and overlooking the farms dotted along the West Brook valley.
This historic schoolhouse is bright and invitingly arranged, with a first floor living room addition (with wood fireplace), a formal dining space, large kitchen, laundry/pantry/office room and a first floor bath. Upstairs are three bedrooms and a storage space with bathroom potential. The home has many updates and upgrades, including; brand new well (2020), septic system, interior paint, kitchen appliances, complete bathroom update, re-pointed chimney, new windows, hot water heater and electric central space heater. There are oak hardwood floors throughout, with newer vinyl kitchen and bath floors. The soapstone woodstove will warm the entire living space through the winter months, while the spacious front porch has fantastic westerly valley views to take in the evening sunset.
The lot is populated with mature trees, stone walls and natural rock features, a level mowed lawn area for fun and games, camp fires, stargazing, or gardening, and even a babbling stream in the woods! The location is only a mile from the village of Walton, minutes to a multitude of recreational options where you can hike, hunt, fish, ski, snowmobile, camp and swim (not to mention all the antique shops, farmer's markets, artistic opportunities, and culinary delights!), and under 2.5 hours to the GWB. This property is a truly unique opportunity.
