Head up the stairs and into the newly renovated 1950’s Bavarian cabin with original wood floors, paneling and built-ins. Enter the light filled and spacious living room, complete with wood burning fireplace, perfect to cozy up to during the winter months. Next, you’ll find a dining nook with built-in benches and open views to the kitchen situated with massive skylight, handcrafted cabinets, and gas cooking – perfect for family dinners and hosting. Just off the kitchen a patio leads to the outdoor space of your dreams, complete with pizza oven and plenty of room to barbecue and dine al fresco.

Back inside, you’ll find a piece of art that is actually a concealed door revealing the main floor bathroom with vintage tub and concrete tile floors, echoing the kitchen. On this level, find two bedrooms, one fitting a queen bed plus furniture and ample closet space.

Next, head downstairs to the ground level where you’ll find a spa-like retreat with sauna, two bathrooms, luxurious lounge spaces, a meditation room with a spring fed water feature, and a rocky solarium plunge pool that is hard to put into words. Bluestone floors and glass walls create a feeling of calm and relaxation.

This designer cottage is perfectly tucked away and surrounded by nature yet close to the many conveniences and adventures that the Upper Delaware River Valley has to offer. Just minutes from the Kadampa Meditation Center, Homestead School, Circle Park, 10 minutes to Barryville or Eldred for groceries, farmers market, coffee, and dining like Barryville General and Sickett Inn. Also less than 15 minutes from the renowned Forestburgh Playhouse and kayaking adventures on the Rio Reservoir. Port Jervis’ train and amenities are a 20-minute drive, and New York City is just 2 hours away by car.
