Stony Clove Creek Retreat near Phoenicia and Belleyare Mountain, $398,000

  |  January 30, 2017

Chichester hamlet is a tiny hidden gem situated just north of Phoenicia in Ulster County. Not much more than a cluster of homes and a post office that shares a building with storefronts, Chichester is located in a picturesque spot along the Stony Clove Creek, nestled in the heart of the Catskills. It’s also about 20 minutes away from Belleayre Mountain Resort. Love to hike? Chichester is close to Big Indian Wilderness, Woodland Valley, Wittenberg Mountain, Overlook Mountain, and Romer Mountain.

Tucked away on the opposite side of Stony Clove Creek from and connected by bridge to Route 214 is this 2.39 acre property with c.1955 cottage included. The glass enclosed porch gives you near-360 views of the land, and the main part of the house comes with three beds, two baths, open concept kitchen/dining room, French and sliding glass doors, and stone fireplace in the living room.

A footbridge crosses over the creek on the property, which ups this home’s charm quotient tenfold. Bear Cabin, as the property is called, is the stuff of Catskill Mountain living dreams. So much so, that it pains us to wonder what might happen to the main and foot bridges if Stony Clove Creek decides to flood. Sorry to be such Debbie Downers. Just get your flood insurance in order, if only to ensure it will never be needed.

Regardless, we love this place and have no problem fantasizing about its gorgeous location. How about you?
