Double doors painted in a warm yellow welcome you into the center of the home. Richly aged hardwood floors lead to a formal parlor with south facing windows. The parlor opens into an intimate sitting room complete with original architectural window molding, light-filled views of the pastoral landscape, and anchored by a cast iron wood stove.

On the other side of the entry hall, the formal dining room is accented by a grand chandelier and original shaker-style dual sided cabinets connecting to the kitchen. The Scandinavian-inspired kitchen with cleanly tiled walls, open shelving, and rich butcher block counters features a farmhouse sink and new appliances, including a five-burner gas range. Beyond the kitchen is the first floor laundry room offering ample storage for linens, seasonal accessories and a convenient additional sink.

The shared bathroom located on the first floor boasts a luxurious clawfoot soaking tub with new hardwood floors, new toilet and sink. Also downstairs is a privately situated home office. The recent addition of high speed internet makes this a perfect work from home location.

Follow the bannister upstairs to the four bedrooms and the shared bathroom with a bathtub and freshly tiled shower. The sunlit master bedroom is a corner room with a sweet cross-breeze and a walk-in closet that could be reimagined as an en suite bathroom.

Back downstairs, a three-season porch features a Hearthstone wood stove and is the perfect home for your motorcycle, kayaks, snowshoes and outdoor gear. A generous deck is just asking you to grill and dine outside under the stars. Three raised beds are ready for your vegetable and flower gardens.

The property is blissfully private, nestled at the junction of two dead end roads and bordered by state land. A rhododendron-wrapped porch runs the length of this country house inviting long conversations with friends or quiet evenings with a book and a glass of something shaken, not stirred. A path leads from the front steps to a grassy knoll overlooking the partially forested 27 acres. Adirondack chairs sit beside an open fire pit with expansive views of the rolling Catskill Mountains. A small meadow sits near the house overlooking the views that would be perfect for an in-ground pool. The property also boasts many original apple trees from which the sellers harvest their own cider.

Explore the groomed trails through your own property, or use the house as a basecamp for the world of outdoor adventures just minutes from the front door – fishing, hiking/biking the rail trail, golfing, horseback riding, swimming, snowshoeing and more. Find farm fresh foods at the local farmers markets. Join the gym nearby including an indoor pool. Located just a few minutes outside of Roxbury, plus conveniently located just 30 minutes to Hunter Mountain and Belleayre Mountain for skiing, or the nearby Plattekill for family friendly slopes.

To get a feel for the region, check out the Escape Brooklyn features on Roxbury–plus the nearby towns of Bovina and Hobart. Even better, plan a weekend during summer visiting the many farms and farm-to-table restaurants in the area following our Delaware County Foodie Getaways Guide. For more inspiration, consider that the current owners founded the Roxbury Writers Residency out of this property, a signature 3-day writers residency and workshop in the heart of the Catskill Mountains.
