This adorable renovated farmhouse with a mix of contemporary and rustic minimalist style, fenced garden, large detached garage, and mountain views is located on one of the loveliest roads in the area and is a perfect Catskills retreat!


The cozy aesthetic in the main living space of this home will make you feel like you’re wrapped in a hug. With its gorgeous stone fireplace, wood flooring, beams, and additional wood details throughout (most of which was harvested from the property), the living room is the very essence of a warm and inviting space. 


The ground floor also has a bright den with tons of windows and a gas stove (perfect as a home office, library, art studio, etc);  a bonus room with a large picture window framing the forest beyond that’s currently being used as a dining room; and a renovated full bathroom with laundry. A recently refreshed galley kitchen includes mahogany cabinets from a nearby 1890s home, cherry wood countertops, new appliances, and all the conveniences for cooking and entertaining. 


Upstairs you’ll find two charming bedrooms including the primary bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, walk-in closet, and a large deck that overlooks the garden below…such a lovely spot to enjoy the year-round mountain views. The smaller second bedroom has been opened up to the primary bedroom and stairwell, creating another great flexible space for work/sleep/play - but could easily be closed back up for privacy. 


Recent improvements include a renovated bathroom, new windows, wood floors, appliances, gas stove, electrical updates, and more!  


Sited on a little less than an acre, there is still plenty of room to enjoy the outdoors, gardening, stargazing, and dining in the fenced yard. The yard leads to the huge 2-car garage with power and attached shed, which also has so much potential to also be used as a workshop, art studio, or converted into a finished space.


This home is perfectly situated in West Shokan, surrounded by tons of wilderness in which to enjoy nature–just a half mile to the Ashokan High Point and Kanape Trailheads and minutes to Peekamoose and the area’s most popular swimming hole. The beloved Marty’s Mercantile, where you can grab breakfast and a copy of the NY Times, is just 5 minutes up the road while an abundance of dining, shopping, and entertainment can be found in nearby popular towns like Phoenicia, Woodstock, Kerhonkson, Accord, and Kingston, all between 20-35 minutes away. Plus, you’ll be just 2 hours from the GWB in NYC!
