This turn-key true log home, featuring a cathedral ceiling and open concept main living space, is the quintessential western Catskills getaway. The setting is ideal - near the end of a quiet, town maintained road, and set on 21.5 acres of mostly wooded and moderately sloped terrain, with a spring fed and stocked pond (largemouth bass and others), and stream with native brook trout near the roadside, the home is set back from the road nicely and has a very private feeling site envelope (a little landscape work could open up more space and incredible westerly views). The welcoming covered porch leads to a spacious wrap-around deck with built-in seating to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. Entering the home, the warm tones of true Adirondack red pine log walls, pine floors and ceilings imbue the space with character. the large windows allow for plenty of natural light, and the wood stove provides both efficiency and charm. The living room and dining room areas are generously sized, and two sliding doors open out to the deck. The kitchen space is tidy, and the island provides for workspace and storage. The first floor also contains 2 bedrooms and a full bath with clawfoot tub and laundry.
The upstairs loft space has an open landing which could be used for any number of purposes - reading nook, home office, gaming center, craft space, or additional sleep quarters. Another bedroom with en-suite bathroom completes the home.
In terms of systems, the home has been well-maintained over the years. The roof has 50 year shingles installed in 2019. Septic was pumped and inspected two years ago. The propane forced air furnace has been recently serviced. Water to the house is spring fed, with a spring house and 350 gallon holding tank above the home (above the pond site), resulting in pure mountain water with endless water pressure - no pumps or pressure tanks needed. The home will also convey fully furnished, including everything apart from a few personal items.
Outside, the manageable yard leads to a 20x30 pole barn with solar electric service, providing space for vehicles, toys and workshop use. Trails lead up toward the pond (small boat included), and above that we find classic Catskills mature forest land, replete with stone walls, small meadows, mixed hardwoods, and abundant signs of wildlife. This remarkable home is available for the first time. Located minutes to Stamford and Hobart, and only 2:45 to the GWB, the region offers countless recreational, artistic, and culinary options, come take a look!
