A Backyard Fantasy in Orange County, $550K

  |  April 5, 2018

This Orange County log house invites you to come play outside…

Like a nice yard? How about a nice deck that overlooks that yard? How about a nice deck with a hot tub, built-in grill, pergola, and plenty space to entertain friends and family? That’s what you’ll find here with this Contemporary log home in Chester, NY. Oh, and 8 acres of lush, tucked-away land, too. It’s even got its own pond and fountain.


When you’re ready to come inside, you won’t lack for space. The three bedroom, three bath Contemporary comes with 2,499 square feet and vaulted ceilings, floor-ceiling windows, stone fireplace, open living room/kitchen/dining room, second-floor loft, and plank floors.

Two bedrooms are upstairs with the master suite downstairs with a private balcony.

With all that land, you could put in a pool just in case the yard and deck aren’t yet perfect enough yet. To keep the property private, the house is accessed by a long driveway and shielded from the road by vegetation.

Chester is located in western Orange County, less than two miles from the charming community of Sugar Loaf. NYC is less than 90 minutes away on a good day with no traffic. If you prefer to seek public transportation, your closest option is the Harriman train station 20 minutes from here. Or, you can hop on I-87 south to New Jersey, and take it from there.
