Charming and well built, this rock-solid 1900 farmhouse with 4bed/2bath, 2300 square feet sits on 1.27 beautiful acres abutting a creek. The property is zoned as a 2 family, perfect for year-round living or all season vacationing with nearby ski resorts, fly-fishing, hunting, and summer hiking and cycling. The views are stunning, and the backyard feels like a small football/soccer field that ends in the middle of the Schoharie Creek. The house contains many original features including a substantial stone foundation and cellar, wide-plank hardwood flooring in several rooms, staircase with curved banister, cast iron claw-foot tub (needs refurbishing), two working chimneys, and flagstone paths, among other things. The surrounding landscape sports lilacs, peonies, a chestnut tree, dogwoods, linden trees, a striking willow tree near the creek, as well as other lovely trees and shrubs, and room to plant more! Your family & guests will be comfortably entertained in the wonderful 18 x 15 family room. In addition, the first floor has a large bedroom, a home office and a den that looks out to the back deck, lawn & creek. Some rooms have carpet and linoleum with the original hardwood floors underneath, while several other rooms have oak tongue and groove flooring. There is a 4-zone expandable boiler, drilled well, and the town recently installed a sewer system. The full cellar (under the main house) with stone walls is dry and has a Bilco door leading to the backyard. Taxes are low. MTC provides fiber optics for high speed internet. This location is only minutes from Hunter & Windham Ski Resorts, and near Belleayre. The Westkill Brewery & Diamond Notch hiking trail is just down the road. The sturdy structure and layout is conducive to restoration and customization. This is an incredible house and property.
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.
