LOVELY 1850's historic farmhouse in the Catskills. Gently restored and comfortably furnished, the house is well maintained and fully equipped.
The sunny country kitchen includes a Bosch dishwasher. In addition to three bedrooms (one queen size bed, two double beds), there is a queen size sleeper sofa in the living room. Air conditioning in all the bedrooms and central heating with individual thermostats in the bedrooms. The main dining table sits 10, the breakfast room table can accomodate 6+. Wireless high-speed internet and cable TV. Good cellphone reception, plus a land line just in case.
Wide board floors, stone foundations, hand sawn beams, original plank doors, and lots of historic charm. Side yard with gravel terrace is the perfect spot for a barbecue. Fresh herbs in the garden may include basil, oregano, lavender and sage, in season.
House is very conveniently located, right on Route 375 in the hamlet of West Hurley. The property is partly fenced in for privacy from the road, but traffic is audible. Fast access to/from Rt.28, 3 minute drive to Woodstock green, 1 minute drive to Hannaford Market, a large grocery store with a deli, sushi chef on premises, on site bakery and adjacent to bank, dry cleaners and wine store. Short walk across the road to local public library with free computers and internet access.
Best area in the Catskill mountains, under 2 hrs from NYC / GW bridge with great variety of local cultural activities, hiking, swimming, skiing, golf, horseback riding, great restaurants, antique shops, etc. House is accessible by public transportation from NYC as it is on the Trailways bus route to Woodstock. Short drives to other scenic Hudson Valley towns such as Kingston, Saugerties, High Falls, Hurley, Stone Ridge, Phoenicia, Rosendale, New Paltz, Rhinebeck, Rhinecliff, Red Hook, Hudson and Annandale-on-Hudson (Bard College).
