It is located on a flat area surrounded by beautiful 3,200 to 4,200 foot high mountain peaks, part of the Catskill Park. It consists of two parcels one with the house on approximately 1 acre, and the other on 2 acres across the road - extending some 300 foot along Van Wagner Road. This section is clear land with many white birch trees, bounded in the back by a running stream.
The house is enclosed by hedges and fences: Front lined with four very large Catalpa trees. The back is lined with a half-dozen 75 foot high evergreen trees. The back yard has an outdoor stone fireplace and summer house. There are some apple trees left from an old orchard, and includes a near standard-size tennis court. In the back next to the tennis court is a 16' by 16' private cabin with bath, cook stove, sink, hot water heater, with winterized water source and separate septic system. In addition, there is a 16' by 20' Two story Carriage House with attached two car garage, attached entrance shed and attached full bathroom.
This eleven room farm house circa 1875 has a formal dining room, den with half bath, parlor with bar, 3.5' by 12' storage area, and upstairs three bedrooms, a full bath with spa tub and laundry room. Plus there are four added ground floor rooms: 12' by 20' Kitchen, 15' by 31' formal living room, 16' by 19' billiard room (with beamed ceiling), and an attached 50' by 25' pool house with 18 foot high vaulted ceiling and swimming pool. This area is being converted into an art gallery, but could still be used as a swimming pool. The dining room has a bay window and a 9' high decorated tin ceiling. The parlor has a 9' beamed ceiling, ceiling fan and built-in bar. The parlor includes a native stone fire place and chimney. This house has one and one-half bathrooms, and one in each out-building. The house has a 12' by 12' screened patio and a 7' by 31' screened front porch. It was repainted and the roof was replaced in 2000. It is heated by oil while the swimming pool is heated by propane from a 1000 gallon in-ground tank. Hot water is supplied by an on-demand water heater.
