Entry is from either side of the home; the front, though a new glass door, and a back entrance from its sliding glass doors on the home’s spacious deck. Both doors open into the heart of the home, whose main space boasts restored, original 16 foot ceilings of the original schoolhouse. Natural light floods this space, thanks to big windows and doors, high ceilings and an open floor plan. The room is anchored by a Napoleon wood burning stove. This is one of many new additions to the home, and piped into the original schoolhouse brick chimney, for those cozy Catskill nights.
Beyond the living/dining space, an open kitchen is equipped with all new stainless-steel appliances, cabinets, countertops, and farm sink perfect for cooking with friends and family or preparing to grill on the deck.
Also on the main level, the expansive primary bedroom boasts ample space for relaxation with its own freestanding tub – the perfect spot to unwind and soak your cares away. Upstairs, a lofted bedroom is the homes second, complete with tons of storage space to keep your retreat tidy and organized. Solid hardwood floors throughout the house add to its cozy, earthy vibe.
Outside, a one-acre oasis offers a harmonious blend of cleared and forested land, with plenty of room for gardening, outdoor activities, and even the potential for expansion. A bluestone fire-pit sits perched above the house perfect for hanging under the starry Catskill sky. Privacy abounds as the property is surrounded by state land, ensuring your peace and serenity. A mere 5-minute stroll will take you to the tranquil Willowemoc Creek, where you can fish, hike, or simply revel in the beauty of nature.
