Tucked back from the road, Silver Birch Way sits in a sun drenched clearing surrounded by a large pond, rocky outcroppings and wooded land. Perched upon 3.61 acres, the property overlooks a picturesque pond and rolling hills.
Enter into the great room, a tranquil space adorned with pastoral window views that frame nature’s ever-changing art. The heart of this space is its oversized stone fireplace, illuminated by abundant natural light from its oversize windows. Exposed wood elements and dark stained pine floors throughout the home bring the outside in.
The open living room breezes seamlessly into the dining area, then flows onto the kitchen – allowing for water views the entire way. The first of three bedrooms is located on the first floor, along with a full bathroom. Upstairs, two additional bedrooms and a full bathroom complete the second story. In-between, a sweet nook located on a stair landing is the perfect spot for reading and relaxing.
Outside, the sights and sounds of nature can be enjoyed from the screened porch. Bird lovers will especially enjoy this space; from the deck, watch as great blue herons, kingfishers, and bald eagles hunt in the pond. Hummingbirds galore, woodpeckers, and music of migratory songbirds during the day and owls at night. The screened in sanctuary lets you embrace the outdoors while maintaining a sense of comfort. Other outdoor features include a monumental fire pit, atop a rocky outcropping – plus the pond, which can be enjoyed all year round for fishing, boating, and ice skating.
From Silver Birch Way, enjoy long country walks along its private dirt road – and take advantage of its five minute proximity to Bethel Woods Center for the Performing Arts. Easy access to Livingston Manor, Narrowsburg, and Callicoon for Delaware River recreation and world-class trout fishing.
