Your own castle in the Catskills. A one of a kind custom home built in 1986, post and beam construction, stone exterior and a slate roof. This official 2 bed, 3 bath home was designed with 2 stone fireplaces and 3 floors of open spaces for communal, multifunctional use. The character does not stop when you enter the home. The kitchen door sourced in London is said to be from a leather works store dating back to pre colonial times, 16th century 1” thick red tile and a Dutch door from Spain also dating back to the late 16th century. There are many other unique features throughout like the loft library and several balconies. The home was built on the site of a former estate. The original owner came back to the states and constructed his home in 1885 after 10 years in Japan, incorporating inspiration from abroad. The home itself is gone but you will find the far east inspiration in the original stone wall gate entry as well as in the repurposed original water tower. The water tower was renovated first in 1986 and then again in 2017 when it was insulated, wired, 2 floors of surround sound, balcony repairs and a gas heating stove installed. There is also a whole home generator on the property that can power both the house and water tower for 2 weeks with a full propane tank. The property grounds offer stone patios, a vegetable garden, 17+ acres and unbeatable views and the seller has tried to maintain some of the original landscaping. Location says it all, you are across the street from the Onteora Club, minutes to Hunter and Windham Mountains, walking distance to the MountainTop Arboretum and dinner at Deer Mountain Inn. This property has a story, maybe you can be part of it!
