Sometimes reality far exceeds dreams, and this 5-bed, 3-bath lakeside home on 30 very private mountainside acres, with its own 10+ acre lake, is just that one-of-a-kind gem. A panorama of mountains surrounds this private crystalline lake which is over 25' deep. As close to the wilderness aesthetics of an Adirondack camp as can be imagined, but this is a Catskill Mountain retreat just 2.5 hours from NYC. ZILLOW HAS THE TAXES INCORRECT, THEY ARE ONLY ABOUT $572/MONTH. The custom contemporary home at the edge of the lake shore has five bedrooms and is well positioned for entertaining, or just a private family retreat. This property offers the ultimate in privacy inside of a protected forest wilderness just off of a quiet town road. Listen to the gurgling of the creek feeding the pure waters of this 17 acre lake and hear the wind brushing the branches of the forest all around. Resting beside a 10 acre over 25 foot deep pristine mountain lake, this field and forested property is surrounded by mountains. Included is an elaborate rambling dock system that extends into the lake allowing unprecedented access to the water for family and guests for easy swimming and boating , or just sitting at the shore. This contemporary home benefits from a well thought out open floor plan, highlighted by a massive blue-stone fireplace, flowing seamless into the dining and kitchen areas. The massive wooden roof beams support both the vaulted ceiling of the second floor and frame the first floor ceiling. Wood paneling throughout the house is of mahogany and the ceilings are tongue and groove knotty pine. There are three hearths - in the living room, family great room, and outdoors for a BBQ grill. The outside barbecue area is a covered patio and a nearby separate screened gazebo offers additional room to congregate and enjoy this magnificent setting. The first level, with a new wood surface composite floor, includes a bedroom and full bath and is accented by beautiful beamed wooden ceilings. There is a private game room for less formal visits. These spaces allow for easy access to the dining and living room, game room and barbecue area, making this a perfect venue to entertain both inside and out. The second level living room area features a spacious great room. Highlighted with full height massive fireplace of hand cut blue-stone, it reaches to the peak of the heavy beams of the cathedral ceiling. The second level is carpeted throughout and has the master bedroom with private bath, and 2 additional bedrooms, serviced by another full bathroom. The large sunroom at the second level, is almost completely windows for wide open views of the lake and mountains behind, where you can sit and enjoy the lake and mountain vistas. For the amusement of those younger, on the third floor is a loft bedroom. Located only 2.5 hours from the George Washington Bridge and all that the quaint mountain village of Andes and the Catskill Mountains have to offer, this once in a lifetime property is now ready and available for it’s next perceptive owner to enjoy.
