Description: PRIVATE, SUNNY CABIN W/POND & BARN, BORDERING PRESERVED CITY LAND
New to the market is a wonderful contemporary cabin very privately situated on 5.73 acres which are surrounded by about 40 acres of protected city-owned land, adding an extra buffer of privacy and room to roam. The structure has a corner stone dated 1942, but the cabin was largely built in the 1960s. Its large (23x23) south-facing living room with cathedral ceiling enjoys views over the swimmable pond below and of distant hills beyond. And all that sun means passive solar works to supplement the oil-fired forced air heating. Also on the ground floor is a small, simple country kitchen, a full bathroom, and good-sized (16â€™x11â€™) family room or third bedroom. Up the open stairway to the second floor, there is the second full bathroom, and two bedrooms (10â€™9x16â€™, 13â€™x13â€™). Both bedrooms have a good deal of closet space and there is a linen closet in the hallway. Downstairs is another large utility closet, while the furnace and other systems are located downstairs in the walk-out basement. There is a huge old barn that years back was reinforced by a few large timbers with concrete anchors. With some imagination and a fair bit of work, this could be transformed for any number of uses. Originally about 45 acres, the property was subdivided years ago, with the acreage beyond the 5.73 being sold to New York City, which purchases property to protect the watershed, which supplies NYC with drinking water. (As an aside, since the Neversink Reservoir is within the same township, Grahamsville enjoys attractive, city-subsidized school taxes.) This gracious land includes woods, and meadows, wild laurel and wild rhododendron. It is rich in wildlife - deer, turkey, and the occasional bear.
