The Ultimate Catskills Log Cabin, $475K

If you’re looking to immerse yourself in the High Peaks, this Catskills log home is the best place to do it, and here’s why: 

There are a multitude of reasons why you might want to live in this mountaintop abode made of logs and stucco, the most compelling of which can be seen from the picture windows in the living room…

For the uninitiated, the rolling green vistas you see here are part of the Catskills High Peaks, all 35 peaks of which exceed 3,500 feet in elevation. About a dozen of the 35 peaks sit within striking distance of this 2.47-acre property, with the back deck facing south toward Balsam, Big Indian, Fir, and Slide Mountains.

Originally built in 1957, this home started life as a modest cabin, later expanded into the five-bedroom, three-bath, 2,947-square-foot mountain retreat you see now. You won’t miss out on the views inside; large windows surround the open, main living space.

Exposed timber beams and a fieldstone fireplace in the living room offer warmth and rustic homey-ness…

…and a private balcony in the master suite provides the perfect place to revel in those mountain views alone or with someone you love. We know where we’d be having our coffee in the morning…

The lower level provides the home’s fourth bedroom with sliding glass doors and…yep, you guessed: Spectacular mountain views.

A family room downstairs makes even more space for lounging, TV-watching, or as a guest suite.

If you’re a winter sports enthusiast, you’re going to love that Belleayre Mountain is practically across the road, and, during the summer months, soothe your longing for snow by spending time in the sun on the massive deck.

Big Indian, NY is located in western Ulster County, less than 9 miles from Phoenicia hamlet and a half-hour’s drive from Woodstock village.
