This Catskills Farmhouse is 10 Minutes to Hunter, 5 Minutes to Windham, $679K

  |  February 5, 2019

Here’s a Jewett farmhouse that’s a pleasing mix of vintage and up-to-date, sitting on a 13.5-acre homestead, red barn included.

And, it’s a double-whammy for winter sports enthusiasts and lovers of older homes. According to the listing, the main three-bedroom house dates back to 1793, although a quick glance at the exterior shows that it’s been updated and likely added onto since then.

Meanwhile, the 4,748-square-foot interior is lofty with cathedral ceilings, large windows, and a great room that will almost certainly give you a serious case of Great Room Envy. Double-sided, floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, anyone? How about an open kitchen with bar seating for five?

We’re enamored with the rustic wood beams and wood paneling in the expansive foyer and staircase…

…not to mention, the main house’s formal living room and library with fireplaces and built-ins…

One of the three bedrooms comes with fireplace, walk-in closets, and views of Hunter Mountain. The master bedroom includes an en suite bath with soaking tub.

But, this is just the main house. The property also includes a two-bedroom guest cottage with plank floors, wood stove, and more views.

Stone walls add to the property’s picturesque quality, but not as much as the vintage red barn with diamond window.

Keep your eyes toward the east to bask in Hunter Mountain views. Better yet, pack up your skiing and snowboarding gear and head to Hunter, Windham, or even Belleayre Mountain, which is still within 30 minutes of the property.
