Have your own Bluestone Castle in the Catskills with what is arguably the best view of the Catskills -- a panorama from Mohonk in the south sweeping to the high peaks of the Catskills -- High Point, Peekamoose, Slide, and Wittenberg -- and, depending on the time of year, a double sunset. Completely private, 46+ acres provide plenty of room and sites to build additional structures. Over twenty years in the making, the 5,000 sq ft house, with 11,000 under -roof square footage, castle walls, and a 200-foot underground tunnel connecting the house to a huge barn. The lower half of the 4,100 sq ft barn now serves as a multi-car garage, the upper level a studio space. The construction used approximately 5,000 tons of bluestone which in today's market would be valued at millions. The owner has a lifetime of experience in stone masonry and is frequently sought out for his expertise in bluestone. To say it is unlike any other property would be an understatement. Among the most recent additions are the stunning gunite diamond finished pool, separate spa, built-in grill, and stone tower. The home itself features an immense great-room space, with most other rooms enjoying that incredible view, as well as multiple stone decks. The nearby pond is breathtaking with multiple rock outcroppings. You will have to travel many leagues to find a bluestone castle such as this one. That is, if you can actually find one.
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.
