This North Branch Contemporary is nearly 5,000-square-feet’s worth of everything you’d want in a Catskill Mountain estate.
Designed by an architect and built in 2010, Banyan Hill is the type of place you go when you want to disappear into both the mountains and the lap of luxury.
The three wings that make up this home spring forth from the epicenter of it all: The sunken living room, with built-in seating surrounded by bluestone and crowned by a fireplace.
Adjoining the living room is a game room complete with wet bar and floor-to-ceiling windows…
…and, on the opposite side from the sunken living room is a the dining wing, highlighted by a light-filled kitchen with stone floors and a separate pantry area. Keep things orderly thanks to an abundance of storage and shelves…
…and, enjoy your eggs and bacon from the built-in banquet overlooking the lush property.
When more guests are involved, bring dinner out onto the separate, screened-in dining room that opens onto the attached stone patio.
The game room wing leads to two en suite bedrooms with spa fixtures. Access the side patio via glass doors from this wing. Up the staircase from the main floor is the master suite…
…while the third wing of the house – a one-bedroom, one-bath apartment – can be reached through the “library bridge” on the second floor, under which the driveway passes. The apartment also has another separate entrance on the first floor, making it great for guests.
The basement level offers a family room with a wine cellar and a built-in high-end projector to make this into a media room. Speaking of high-end gadgetry, this house is full of features like programmable dimmer lights controlled by the push of a button, radiant-heat floors, and a whole-house sound system.
Banyan Hill is situated on the top of a 1,600-foot rise overlooking the North Callicoon Creek in western Sullivan County, NY. The nearest centers of civilization are North Branch hamlet and Calllicoon on the NY/PA border.
