Available for the first time in 50 years, “Witten Pond” is a unique multi-house compound on 16.8 acres stunningly situated by the Wittenberg Brook and surrounded by thousands of additional acres of mountain ranges and forever-wild Catskill State Forest. All three houses, plus a separate sauna house, are centered around a deep, half-acre spring-fed pond stocked with rainbow trout, making for protected year-round views of both water and mountains. The property also has a proven track record of generating enough rental income from VRBO and other sites to cover property taxes and other operating costs, even though the separate quarters mean you don’t have to interact with guests. The principal house is a reconstructed 1835 post-and-beam barn, featuring a spectacular cathedral-ceilinged living and entertainment gallery flooded by sunlight through a 25-foot-tall façade of antique windows. Adjoining that space is a superbly designed open-plan three-level wing featuring a sleek, contemporary gourmet kitchen, open dining and living area, and, on its own floor with a glorious view, a spacious master bedroom suite and spa bath – all easily partitioned from the gallery space for extra privacy and flexibility. The second gem on the property is a shingled 1920 Adirondacks-inspired house with wrap-around porch and original chestnut interior featuring original twig banisters and moldings, a river-stone fireplace and a massive peak-roofed bedroom flooded in sunlight but still cozy. The third structure is a charming and fully renovated former gatehouse perfect for accommodating additional family or weekend guests. All of the houses feature stylishly updated bathrooms, kitchens (4 in total) and independent systems, with the principal house equipped with central air, a wine room, climate-controlled art storage space and an office that could easily be converted to a guest or caretaker suite. Rare for a spot so serene, the property has high-speed hard-cabled internet service, plus robust cellular connectivity. Minutes from the Ashokan Reservoir and a quick drive from Woodstock, this is a unique and economically savvy family compound or retreat property featuring no less than 3 rare and historic architectural delights.
This mortgage calculator can be used to figure out monthly payments of a home mortgage loan, based on the home's sale price, the term of the loan desired, buyer's down payment percentage, and the loan's interest rate. This calculator factors in PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) for loans where less than 20% is put as a down payment. Also taken into consideration are the town property taxes, and their effect on the total monthly mortgage payment.
