A Unique Cottage / Cabin for Sale in The Catskills
At its most basic, home is a warm, dry place where inhabitants are protected from the elements. But it can also be a place where your dreams and creativity run free; a place for fun; a place where you can be one hundred percent yourself. In fact, that might be the New American Dream; owning a home that both feeds “you” and expresses “you”! That’s a pretty tall order.
Happily, for some lucky creative-type who has been searching for the place to live out the New American Dream in the Catskills, 2817 Route 10 in Ashland (located in Greene County) is being offered for sale! Don’t let the uninspired sounding address fool you, this is a deliciously different home.
At first glance it is obvious that 2817 Route 10 is unique. It is painted a traditional red, but the tradition ends there. Two charming structures, some would call them cottages, some would call them cabins, we’ll call them “halves”, are connected by a second story bridge dotted with a row of square windows that echo the parapets of a castle, to form a single home. As you approach the house, the space under the bridge serves as a frame for the woodlands behind the house, from the other side, it frames a large meadow that creates a base for the views. The setting is extraordinary as well; fourteen acres of meadows and woods, with old stone walls and a year-round stream to follow as you look for adventure in your own backyard. If you want to venture beyond, it’s a six minute ride to Windham Mountain for skiing and golf and you’re right in the midst of the Catskills for hiking, biking, swimming, tubing and snowshoeing.
Step inside the larger of the two halves and you’re bound to be intrigued by the unusual layout. Downstairs there’s a foyer for greeting guests, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. In order to capture the views, the main living area is on the second floor, where a huge stone fireplace anchors the open concept great room. Light streams in from the windows and there’s a novel feeling of floating that comes from the combination of the cathedral ceilings and being up above it all. The bookshelf lined bridge that connects the two halves leads from this great room over to the smaller half. There, you enter a second floor bedroom, study or studio which has a loft to the third floor accessed via a ladder. If you are an instagrammer, this space might just become your muse! Beautiful wide boards bounce light around and cover the floors, walls and ceilings. And downstairs? A screen room with breezes coming from all four directions. It’s the perfect place for reading, napping, and some quality board game time.
Everything about this home is different, and yet, everything about it seems perfect. If only a fantastical home is going to light your heart and let you be you, then you need to see 2817 Route 10 in Jewett.
