Introducing Barn 31, one of the newest additions to the Catskills Farms family.
It’s a barn! It’s a lake cottage! It’s a low-maintenance, privately-located home! And, when construction is complete, it will be all three rolled into one, situated on 3.5 acres front-and-center to all that we love about the Catskill Mountains.
The soon-to-be-finished barn features one bedroom on the first floor along with the open living room/dining room/kitchen, as well as two bedrooms on the second floor. The 1,500-square-foot interior also comes with two full baths. An unfinished, walk-out basement fronts the property’s small lake, where you can avail yourself of fishing, kayaking, and swimming.
Catskill Farms builds each of their homes with ease-of-living and sustainability in mind, with features like enhanced insulation, high-efficiency furnaces, on-demand hot water heaters, and heat pumps as a heating source, eliminating the need for gas or oil as a fuel source.
Using authentic turn-of-the-century regional architecture as the basis of their designs, Catskill Farms homes come with fireplaces, wide plank floors, shaker-style cabinets, and huge porches. Security systems, low heat alarms, and pre-wired audio are also among standard home feature fare.
Barn 31’s surroundings offer a rare combination of fields and woods, with views of rocky outcroppings around the lake thrown in for good measure, located within a small colony of other Catskill Farms homeowners.
“This building lot is pretty terrific. It has woods, some awesome stone ledges, a fun driveway and a house positioning that takes advantage of the water, the fields and the woods. Someone is really going to dig this place,” says Chuck Petersheim, owner of Catskill Farms.
Bethel, NY, home to the original 1969 Woodstock festival, is situated three miles north, with other explorable Catskills towns like Callicoon, Narrowsburg, and Livingston Manor also nearby. By car, NYC is two hours away.
101 Silver Birch Way, Bethel will be completed late summer 2019.
