Considered since the earliest days of our Republic to be enchanted, the Catskill Mountains of New York State have long been a haven for artists and writers who have created numerous unique homes and studios among the Catskills many peaks and valleys.One such property, located in Jefferson New York, stands out among these unique creations and is, for the first time since its creation, available for sale. Comprising of 170+ acres of former farmlands this property with its hardwood forests, open meadows, streams and ponds was fashioned into a singularly unique Catskill Mountain retreat. The original farmhouse with its large dairy barn greets you at the entrance of the property. This house has been updated with a modern kitchen and two full baths, three bedrooms and includes such features as hardwood floors, crown molding, wood burning fireplace,central air conditioning and a two-car garage.Just a short distance from the farmhouse is the studio building. Sited in a private meadow overlooking a tranquil pond, this Norman inspired building with its slate clad Mansard roof, Quoined corners and unique exterior finishes contains approximately 3000 square feet of space with high ceilings, chestnut floors and elaborate trim and moldings throughout. Several crystal chandeliers reflect the light from large windows overlooking the countryside. There is a powder room and full finished basement all with radiant heating. This building suggests a multitude of uses from art or dance studio, conversion to a spacious single family home and more.The statement building on the property, also very privately sited, is a thatched roof cottage that would be at home in a writing of the Brothers Grimm. This cottage is a piece of art unto itself with many unusual and complex details requiring incredible skill to not only conceive but also realize. There is a great room with a stone fireplace, vaulted beamed ceiling and barley twist central column support, hardwood floors and rustic stairway that leads to a single second floor bedroom and en-suite bath. This bedroom has a charming covered porch accessed via French doors with views of the surrounding countryside.Also on the first floor is a small drawing room, powder room, unique "secret" room behind a bookcase, vestibule with marble tile floor, and compact kitchen with custom cabinets and marble counters. The drawing room has a fireplace with a Georgian mantelpiece; this portion of the first floor is a complete departure from the great room being more Downing Street in feeling. A full basement with custom lighting is completely finished. The cottage has radiant floor heating and central air conditioning. Absolutely no expense was spared in the creation of this one of a kind structure.This property awaits a new beginning as a family compound, artists retreat or perhaps a return to its roots in agriculture. Opportunities abound in the Catskill Mountains where entrepreneurs are making new and exciting lives for themselves.
