From your first approach to this compelling property you know you are entering a unique and special place. Driving past the gated entrance, down a long, wooded, winding drive the view opens to a gleaming 10 acre private lake and to the lakeside home. The approach is nothing short of magical!
Rarely does a property come along with so many sought after elements, in a truly one of a kind setting. The property is a wonderful mix of open fields & forest, with a gleaming private lake that sits in the middle of the property - your own private lake, Jones Lake. The lake is a wonderful place to canoe, fish, swim, have lakeside barbecues or to watch wildlife. Owning Jones Lake gives new meaning to "keeping up with the Joneses". Stocked with several varieties of fish - caste your line and catch your dinner! Take in the sunsets reflecting off the shimmering water in the fading light!
A series of trails makes the land accessible to leisure summer hikes, snowshoeing in the winter, autumn leaf walks or hunting for ramps in the early spring. This property is in it's own contained valley - ensuring solitude and complete privacy. An abundance of wildlife has been spotted in the surrounding forest and around the lake - be sure to have your binoculars ready for your very own wildlife experience! Deciduous forest, acres of evergreen groves, and wonderful rock formations give the land character and dimension. This is a great place to recharge your soul, to dream, to recreate or to simply enjoy the stunning natural scenery - a true physical, psychological and spiritual refuge.
The well built home is sited for enjoyment of the lake and surrounding mountains. A great place for gatherings with family and friends - the front deck is perfect for outdoor entertainment & merriment. The house is filled with light and beautiful views from every window. Hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, and a wood burning stove contribute to an inviting, warm and welcoming atmosphere. The home features 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, an eat-in kitchen and an open floor plan.
Set in the Western Catskills at the end of a quiet, dead-end, town maintained road the entrance is discreet, appealing and very private. There is a conservation easement on some of the land ensuring an enduring privacy. A building envelope allows you to build another home for those dreaming about creating a family compound. The property is about 3 hours from NYC, minutes to the villages of Delhi, Stamford and Oneonta. Close to golfing, restaurants, shopping, and minutes to the West Kortright Center.
