Want Catskill charm and history? Well here it is, a farm house with soul that has been lovingly maintained. This property is on the market for the first time in 40 years. Was initially built for the accountant at the once world renowned Schwarzwaelder Furniture Co. The Schwarzwaelder family owned the town of Chichester at the turn of the 20th century and all of the homes were built for their employees. This beautifully maintained property with mature flowering gardens, apple tree, and stately maples is ready for a new chapter. The interior takes you back to a day when homes were built to stand the test of time. From the stone fireplace with Jotul wood stove insert to the detailed parquet wood floors throughout, to the kitchen's custom cabinetry with detailing on the doors and dovetail drawers. All speaks of a time when builders were considered craftsmen. The downstairs flows easily from one room to another while the bedrooms upstairs are well placed with a spacious landing and hallway. Light filled rooms and a spacious layout creates a comfortable relaxing environment. The French doors lead to the wrap around porch where you can enjoy morning breakfast with the songbirds or sit on the rocking chair porch and see a magical Catskill mountain view in all seasons. The exterior shows off the ornately carved corbels and classic columns on the wrap around porch that beckons to a day where function and creativity went hand in hand. The walk-up attic was finished adding over 400 sq ft of living space with vaulted ceiling. It is being used as a fifth bedroom / family room with electric heat and 2 skylights. There is an additional room that can be transformed into a bathroom. Don't miss the half bath on the first floor smartly located under the regal staircase. Walk less than 150 yards from the house and enjoy the Stony Clove Creek. You can hear the flow of fresh mountain water in the creek while relaxing on the porch. Under 2 hours from the GWB. One mile away is Phoenicia where this trendy little town boasts cultural events like "The International Festival of the Voice". Just 25 minutes to Woodstock for music, food, and fun. 17 minutes to Hunter for skiing & many summer festivals. The Esopus Creek runs through Phoenicia and is known for trout fishing, water tubing & kayaking. PLUS, you are surrounded by hiking trails everywhere! Come see this charming Catskill Mountain Jewel!
