Just 2.5 hours outside of NYC in Margaretville, tucked in the trees with no neighbor in sight and clad in rough-cut hemlock – this midcentury home blends seamlessly into its natural surroundings.
Set atop a hill overlooking a wildflower-filled meadow, the property features inspiring mountain views and is directly adjacent to a rushing stream (aka the Batavia Kill), the sound of which perpetually fills the air.

As you step inside the open floor plan, a wall of glass frames the layered forest, meadow, and mountain views. A myriad of windows and strategically placed skylights allow natural light to permeate the entire structure. One of the owners, a Parisian interior designer whose work has been featured in various global publications, made significant renovations and upgrades. The result is an elevated interior with modern touches and muted tones that lets nature be the star of the show.
The space is ideal for indoor/outdoor entertaining with living space that flows directly onto a deck that spans the entire length of the home. Some interior highlights include handmade wood cabinets and countertops, private balconies in each of the two upstairs bedrooms, and a central staircase handcrafted by a renowned local artisan.
The property is a rare offering that combines an architecturally unique envelope, a stylishly designed interior, and the complete Catskills experience; 31 acres of land including 1200 feet of stream frontage, a portion of which runs directly adjacent to the house, large open meadows in which to meander, a sizable spring-fed pond, a forest with over 200 feet in elevation gain that backs up to forever wild land on which you can blaze miles of private hiking trails, and an abundance of wildlife including bald eagles, foxes, porcupines, turtles, flying squirrels, and herons, to name just a few of the many species you’ll encounter.
The property is an ideal upstate retreat and/or a potentially lucrative short-term rental due to its close proximity to skiing at Belleayre or Plattekill (15 mins), the charming towns of Margaretville (7 mins), and Roxbury (10 mins) as well as a plethora of outdoor activities; hiking, kayaking, fly-fishing, biking and golfing. The 31-acre property comprises three parcels. The house sits on a 17.5-acre parcel. Across the creek is an 11-acre parcel on which you could build another home or bring it to the market. A 3.1-acre parcel provides a buffer from the road and includes a long driveway into the property.
