There is nothing missing from this stunner in Greene County. Situated on Blackhead Mountain near Cairo, the sprawling compound has covered the checklist from top to bottom, from the appealing mix of rustic and modern, to its 176 acre lot size, to the ponds and streams, to the waterfall, to the treehouse, to the guesthouse, to the studio, to the adorable gypsy caravan located on the property. Did we leave anything out? Probably. The main house is a whopping 10,000 square feet, and the guest/caretaker’s house is a fairy tale on the inside. The listing suggests this could be a spa, animal sanctuary, or retreat center, and we can certainly appreciate its potential for all of those things. We’re not sure, however, that we’d be able to share it with the world. Call us selfish, but sometimes, the best enchanting escapes are the ones that are kept secret…if that’s even possible with a place like this. Located near the Blackhead Mountain golf course and about 10 minutes west of Cairo heading into the Catskill Park. More info here.
