Featured in the film The Northern Kingdom, Red Hen Farm is an Andes treasure and a Catskill Premier property. Built circa 1890, this iconic homestead was settled by one of the founding families of Andes. This property has only had two owners in the past 128 years - the roots run deep in this beautiful area of the Great Western Catskill Mountains. The current owner is an avid equestrian and the property is ideal for those who own and love horses.
THE HOUSE - Upon entering the house one is struck by the beautiful natural light, the intuitive layout and an organic flow from one room to another. The common areas consist of a formal dining room, living room, sun room, a full bathroom and a two room eat-in kitchen which is ideal for large parties and those who like space to spread out.The kitchen features original wood cabinetry, vaulted ceilings and butcher block & stainless counter tops. Many original details adorn the house including wood floors, brass door knobs, period lighting fixtures, wood molding and more. There are 4 roomy bedrooms and a full bathroom upstairs. A wrap around front and side porch is an appealing feature of the house which extends the living, entertaining and conversation areas. As a bonus, there is a large finished attic space which could be a fifth bedroom, play room, a writers studio, storage- you are only limited by your imagination.
GUEST HOUSE, APARTMENT, AND BARN - The adorable detached one bedroom guest house has it’s own private entrance, a small deck and is loaded with appealing details. The cathedral ceilings, large open living area and loft space is both functional and charming. The bathroom has a claw foot tub and is very roomy, the kitchen is straight forward and comfortable. This living space adds real value to the property.
Above the barn is an additional one bedroom apartment with its own kitchen and bathroom. This space has a loft like feel and has beautiful country views from the many windows - the skylights give the space a light and airy feel. Both auxiliary living areas could be rented out to defray the cost of ownership or used to house family or friends.
The barn is multifunctional building, combining a large two car garage, a separate room for storage and 3 stalls for horses. The tack room is a horse lovers dream, heated, electrified and has both hot and cold running water. The horse stalls have direct access to the one of 5 electrified horse paddocks.
LAND / ETC - Much of the land was designed and set up for horses. With 5 electried horse paddocks, 4 run in sheds, bridal paths through - out, the land is both beautiful and accessible. The dressage arena with chopped rubber footing was created for training horses. Extensive white fencing , two silos, stone walls and circular driveway beckons to a bygone era. Perennial gardens, fruit trees, a seasonal stream, and many varieties of lilacs will thrill the gardener. The bucolic country setting, the views and vegetation make this a very special property.
LOCATION - Minutes to the charming Catskill Mountain village of Andes, a short ride to boating, hiking and shopping - the location is classic country but close to services.
