In Grahamsville, NY, just over 100 miles from NYC, Chestnut Creek House offers a beautiful, modern “base camp” – at the literal base of Catskill Park. Though this region is named for its many rivers, creeks and tributaries, houses with stream frontage are rare.

Nestled between a private brook and 44 acres of protected land, Chestnut Creek’s combination of prime location, and beautifully renovated home, are a unique find. Full house contents are additionally available for sale (with the exception of some personal items) making this truly a turnkey home.

From the front covered porch, enter into Chestnut Creek House’s airy kitchen. Oversize windows allow for plentiful natural light, plus views over lush rhododendron outside, a calm environment for your morning coffee. With stainless steel appliances, open shelving, custom bluestone flooring, and a butcher-block island, the open kitchen/dining area blends modernity, minimalism and nature. Sliding doors from this room lead to a back patio, hugged by summer-blooming rhododendron.

Continue into the living room, made cozy by its stone accent wall, wood stove and beautiful hardwood floors. Take in the babbling stream from the floor-to-ceiling windows in your very own sunroom, which would also make a great reading nook or yoga studio. A skylight lets in extra sunshine, making the space feel built for reflection and grounding. The airy guest room on the main floor is conveniently placed next to a spacious full bathroom, newly renovated with easy white tile, a modern farmhouse sink, and shaker pegs for your linens.

Heading upstairs, ascend to the spacious primary room with a work from home space, sitting area, and beautifully framed windows. An oversized upstairs guest room is currently staged with two full beds and features farmhouse-style wainscoting, painted floors, a sunny window lounge and expanded sitting area. Shower with a partner in the upstairs full bath, which features side-by-side rainfall shower heads. Back downstairs, a partially finished walkout basement acts as a lounge, game room, weightlifting studio and extra storage space.

Tucked just off a state route in a small Neversink hamlet, Chestnut Creek House is accessible year-round, with plenty of forested grounds. Grill and dine on the roomy front porch, or warm yourself by the streamside fire pit in the backyard. Plant that garden you’ve been dreaming about, and thanks to the neighboring protected land, you can enjoy the lush meadow next door without having to maintain it. Minutes to enviable swimming holes, hiking, fly fishing on the Neversink River, and every outdoor adventure available in the area.
