Have you got the climate-change-induced-early-winter blues? Us, too, so we’re taking a tour of this Athens lakehouse.

Before we jump into enjoying a white Christmas – which seems imminent, based on recent weather – let’s reminisce about just a few short months ago, when the trees were lush and green and all we could think about was when we could go swimming again. Summer’s return is assured, and when it does, imagine spending it in this Sleepy Hollow lakefront Contemporary with direct access to the water.

The Sleepy Hollow Lake community consists of the homes that surround the 324-acre lake, which is situated less than four miles north of Athens village on the Hudson River. Living in the community is akin to living in a small town, as Sleepy Hollow offers its own dedicated water and sewer services. The tight-knit community also provides a lot of recreational activities for its residents, and you can find out more about them here.

This one-acre, lakefront lot features a 2,000-square-foot house with a serene interior packed with lake views.

Bring the whole family or invite lots of friends to visit, because there are five bedrooms, two full, and one-half bathrooms on offer in this 1988-constructed house…

…as well as a full basement with a family room, bedroom, and one of the home’s full baths.

This would make a terrific vacation home, to be sure, and with the Hudson Amtrak station about 20 minutes away, commuting is a possibility. But, could you live here full-time? Indeed, you could. Sleepy Hollow has some full-time residents, and its proximity to charming Athens village and Catskill, as well as winter destinations like Hunter, Windham, and Belleayre Mountains, makes it a strong potential winter or permanent home.
