The 5-bedroom, 3.5 bathroom farmhouse has it all. A mudroom/ laundry area opens to the chef’s kitchen with high-end appliances, custom concrete countertops, and ample cabinetry. A formal dining room boats a custom table for 12 and a separate bar area. Unique barn doors open to a spacious living room with spectacular ceiling millwork and fireplace. The first bedroom suite with full bath is on this level, plus a stylish half bath.

Upstairs is an additional luxe primary suite with full bath, along with three more bedrooms, and a guest bath with soaking tub and shower. Custom millwork, hardwood floors, steel siding, wooden beams, designer lighting, and unique barn doors define the home and found throughout. Every component of this meticulous gut-renovation is brand new including: plumbing, electric, central a/c, spray foam insulation, on-demand heating and hot water, windows, solid hardwood floors, doors, roof, and more. No detail has been overlooked. A full-height unfinished walkout basement provides cavernous space for storage, a workshop, studio, or exercise area.

Outside is a rustic stone smokehouse and a useful carport. There is abundant yard space and lush grass for recreational activities, outdoor dining and entertaining, and a fire pit.

Gabel Farmhouse belonged to the Gabel family who came from Germany in the 1800’s and settled the surrounding land. The original homestead included the neighboring home, which still belongs to a Gabel family member, and the large red barn behind the house which has been converted into a gorgeous wedding space – The Barn on Hubbard. The setting and history truly makes this the quintessential Catskills farmhouse and a savvy investment.

This dreamy property is just 2 hours from New York City, and only ten minutes by car to the trendy amenities of both Callicoon and Jeffersonville, or a scenic half hour drive to Livingston Manor or Narrowsburg. There is nothing to do but move in, and luxuriate in your countryside surroundings.
