Privacy Assured in this Catskills Victorian Farmhouse, $550K

  |  September 3, 2018

If you’re the type who prefers the company of trees and the companionship of mountains over nearby neighbors, check out this Catskills Victorian farmhouse…

How is all of this seclusion possible? The farmhouse is situated on 97.2 acres of land in Delaware County, about a half-hour west of Belleayre Mountain. That’s northern Catskill Mountains Land, home of peaks and valleys, streams and creeks, outdoor recreation galore…and you, too, if you play your cards right.

Kiss your neck and shoulder tension good-bye as you as you head up this bucolic driveway to 1072 Ridge Road, Andes, NY…

Those mountains? Those mountains are your new next door neighbors.

Not tempted by this view, even just a little bit? Then it’s possible that you have no soul. Perhaps a glimpse of front porch perfection will beguile you…

Okay, now that you’ve settled into a more rural rhythm, let’s explore the nitty-gritty of this c.1850s farmhouse.

With 2,600 square feet and five bedrooms, this house is awash in original 19th century details like plank floors, built-ins, and window and door frames. Updated features include stainless steel kitchen, baths, and large picture windows on the first floor for maximum view-basking pleasure. Also comes with a wood stove.

A big office space could be exactly that, or you could make it your private studio, guest accommodations, or sixth bedroom.

This property has a little bit of everything: A year-round stream, secluded pond, hiking trails, woodland, and open meadows. Given its size, it could be an organic farm, yoga/wellness/artists’ retreat, a Tentrr campsite, or one helluva private family home. Even if you never leave the comfort of your own 97+ acres, you’ll experience everything the Catskill Mountains have to offer.
