Rustic Refinement

Rarely does a property come along offering so many desirable characteristics - panoramic reservoir views, privacy, a refined log home, a small stream complete with waterfalls and surrounded by protected DEP land….And that’s just the beginning!

The Setting

Set high above the Pepacton Reservoir, this property is on a quite country road outside the Catskill Mountains villages of Andes and Margaretville. The unassuming driveway takes you though a pine forest opening up to arguably some of the best views around. The views take in the beautiful Pepacton Reservoir and the majestic Western Catskill Mountains - the views are quite simply breathtaking, and give new meaning to the phrase “a million dollar view.” A small stream meanders through the property, giving way to several cascading waterfalls adding a bit of magic to the property. The property is mostly surrounded by hundreds of acres of protected DEP land, ensuring lasting privacy. An open field and woodland forest complete this one-of-a-kind location. All this located on 9.63 acres.

The Home

This Lok-N-Log custom home has a welcoming covered front porch, a wonderful entrance to a rustically refined log home. Upon entering the house you enter into the great room where you are greeted by a hand crafted rustic log staircase, an imposing floor to ceiling stone fireplace, warm pine floors, wood beamed ceilings and an open & inviting living plan. The kitchen features granite counter tops, wood cabinets and is open to the living and dining area. Glass doors lead to a large covered balcony making the stunning views accessible from both indoors or from the balcony. The large main floor Master bedroom features a gas fireplace, doors leading to a balcony and an en-suite bathroom. The center piece of the master bath is a beautifully designed dual stone shower - a truly unique feature. Upstairs there are three additional bedrooms, a TV room, a full bathroom and of course views from many vantage points. A full unfinished, walk-out basement is awaiting your imagination - more bedrooms? Another bathroom? A media room? You are only limited by your imagination.

The Location

Minutes to the Catskill Mountain villages of Andes and Margaretville, you are close to shopping, restaurants, grocery stores, farm stands, two ski centers, golfing, hiking, boating, fishing and so much more. All of this just about 2.5 hours from New York City. This is truly a 4 season retreat designed for the buyer seeking a unique and impressive country home.
