Privately set at the end of a dead end street sits this Custom Built Douglas Fir Log Home with direct access to Catskill Creek on 20 acres of classic country land. Built by the current owners, this property is a labor of love. Hydrangea bushes, white pines and a Zen rock garden lead you up to the entrance of this secluded oasis. Inside, the home boasts an open floor plan with high, vaulted, beamed ceilings; Brazilian chestnut wood floors and an abundance of windows framing picturesque views of nature. The kitchen is fully equipped with soapstone counters & sinks, a butcher block island and an eating nook that looks out over a landscaped lawn embraced by trees, with hints of mountain tops in the distance. Both the living room and dining room have oversized sliding glass doors that lead out to their own covered porches. The living room holds a Finnish Tulikivi wood-burning stove which, when lit for 2 hours, stores enough heat to keep the house warm for 24 hours. On the main level there are two guest bedrooms and a full bath. Upstairs is the Primary suite with sitting area, en suite bath and dressing area w/closet space. The basement, with 10ft high ceilings, is unfinished but has great potential to be extra living space, gym, entertainment room, etc. Across the lawn is a 3-bay propane heated garage with insulated glass doors and running water that also incorporates a window-lined artist studio with Vermont Casting stove & an unfinished second level for storage. Also on the property is a newly built board & batten storage barn with metal roof, covered patio & 200 AMP service. This is perfect for more garage/storage space, a workshop or conversion into an event space. If you have a green thumb, you'll love the greenhouse with its own propane heat and wood stove. Close to Windham Mountain, Catskill, Zoom Flume, hiking, shopping and entertainment.
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.
