This beautifully renovated, three-season, five-bedroom home has lake access and is less than two hours from New York City. Registered on the National Register of Historic Places, this 1800’s home is an entertainer's dream with a large country kitchen, multiple indoor and outdoor dining zones, and a wrap-around patio with sunset views. Not to mention, this property includes lake rights and a lakeside cabana and is being offered fully furnished!
Upon arrival, the large front porch invites you up and into the home’s main living space/formal dining. Complete with a wood stove that is framed by an impressive stone fireplace, white wainscoting, and large eastern-facing windows, this space is bright and inviting. Off to the left is an office with plenty of storage. On this level, you will also find the first full modern sunlight bathroom, laundry, large re-designed cook's kitchen with views of the back patio, built-in sound system (can you say ambiance?!), and projector/screen to really elevate those movie nights. Travel up the main staircase to find the home's five bedrooms, second full bath, and large deck.
Each bedroom has tons of original character and light with the primary suite at the end of the hallway (its bed perfectly nestled into the circular lookout). The full bathroom is roomy and bright with a soaking tub and updated design. Up another short staircase, the third level of the home boasts some incredible bonus space that is currently being used as two adorable additional bedrooms. In the backyard, you’ll find a true private oasis complete with an attractive stone patio, tranquil outdoor shower, screened-in porch (where we're sure you'll want to spend the majority of your day!), and plenty of green space. This area of the property is beyond perfect for entertaining as well as unwinding.
A few minutes down the road is the private beach on Masten Lake and a personal cabana to conveniently house towels, umbrellas, chairs, beach games, etc. Upstate living truly doesn't get any better than this! Park Road itself, is a mostly seasonal community with many of the homes being three-season properties themselves, so you can imagine how alive this area becomes in the warmer months!
Since the home is not insulated, the current owners had baseboard heating (oil) installed to fulfill their mortgage criteria but they are also incredibly convenient in extending the amount of time that can be spent in the home. While the owners typically prepare the house for winterization (draining all the lines of the home) in November, this can happen earlier or later in the season depending on the weather. How early the home can be opened in the Spring is subject to the same. The owners have a plumber professionally close and open the home. What about converting to a year-round residence?
It's not a difficult project and would cost about $70,000 which means you can have this gorgeous 5 bedroom (plus 2 bonus attic rooms) historic home with lake rights for right around $520k...AMAZING! Happy to provide a copy of the contractor's quote to interested buyers and walk them through the scope of work.
Located in Wurtsboro, this home is just 12-15 minutes from restaurants and shops in Mountaindale (recently written up in the NY Times!!), vineyards, skiing at Holiday Mountain, hiking and fishing at Bashakill, Wolf Brook and Neversink River Unique Area, 25 minutes from more shopping and restaurants in Middletown and Port Jervis, 35-40 minutes to Minnewaska State Park and more dining and shopping in Livingston Manor, and under 90-minutes from NYC. This home truly is the perfect escape!
