Monet’s Lily Pond Views
Nature Paradise adjoining Long Pond and Rails to Trails
This 1920s-built cottage is perched at the edge of Long Pond in Roxbury next to the wonderful 26-mile Catskill Scenic Trail. The miles-long lagoon is actually the Headwaters of the mighty Delaware River but here it is like a nature preserve for birds and wildlife that flourish in the sparsely settled Long Woods Ravine on State Route 30 just a couple of miles outside the Historic Hamlet of Roxbury.
With no neighbors in sight this 1,100-sf home on 1.4 acres is a cozy 2BR-1Bath retreat with a large eat-in kitchen and separate dining room. The woodstove hearth will warm the cool mountain nights and with the Catskill Scenic Trail right behind the back yard you can hike, bike, snowmobile or horseback ride from the 3 car garage/shop/stable adjoining the trail. Or just sit on the front porch and gaze at the serene lily-pond lagoon and watch the Great Blue Heron soar along the valley looking for his fishing hole.
The homes’ garden is rich with mature ornamental plantings, soaring pines and picturesque stonewalls bordering the creek. And you can hear the waterfall next to the Scenic Trail behind the wooden privacy fence allowing back yard seclusion.
From this affordable retreat you can reach 4 ski areas in 30-45 minutes and your only 5 minutes to the Roxbury Arts Group events, Kirkside Park playgrounds, Shepard Hills Golf Course and the dining and shops of Roxbury. All this just under 3 hours drive from New York City.
