Ashland NY - Your Retreat on 114 Acres!
Imagine your ideal home. Is it a sanctuary that fosters peace and repose? Is it a place that soothes your soul with crisp green meadows, calm-inducing creeks, serene ponds, and lush mountains? Country living is a dream for so many. We hear though, that moving to the countryside can be intimidating. While some of us at Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty are life-long country-dwellers, most of us made the leap from "city mouse" to "country mouse" at some point. Let us assure you, it will be great!
If you're thinking, “If I move to the mountains, I'll be bound to round-the-clock peace. That’s just too much pressure! I'm not sure I can be that zen, all the time." Listen, no one expects you to be perfectly chill in perpetuity. In fact, mountain living is just as much about excitement as it is about relaxation. The ideal is really a paradise that includes the immediate option of excitement whenever you feel the urge to shake off tranquility.
Over 100 Acres...
351 North Settlement in Ashland is the supreme example of ideal mountain living! It's a perfect farmhouse nestled in the Catskills. It offers solitude, relaxation, nostalgia, and is literally surrounded by adventure! Outside its doors are 114 acres of green, green fields, that together with the blue mountains in the distance create a picture-perfect backdrop. There are woodlands, a creek, an enchanting pond, and two barns. You can have a whole lot of adventure without ever leaving the grounds! Strikeout across the meadows, throw some wild parties with some over-the-top BBQ on the stone terrace, play kick-the-can all night long, host an invite-only concert. You could really do things here. Think how the adventure would increase if you added an animal here and there - a few horses, some goats, a few sheep... the barn loft would make a great fiber studio!
Inside This Catskills Farmhouse
Throughout the pristine farmhouse, you'll find details that are at once comforting and impressive: reclaimed Australian Cyprus, oak, and cherry wood floors, and huge divided light windows. You're immediately immersed in warmth and light...yes, every room in this home is sun-drenched. The first floor features a formal living room with a brick fireplace with built-in firewood storage and a gourmet kitchen. Like to play chef on the weekends (and weekdays when you're lucky)? Hey! This is a great place for a culinary adventure! There's an eight-burner commercial-style stove, a huge island topped with some lovely granite, and lots of storage space in the beautiful cherry cabinets. The first floor is also home to the "mudroom". Most of the time mudrooms are a side note - necessary, but not a focal point. This mudroom could be an art gallery! You might find yourself settling into the custom built-ins to read your favorite novel near the French doors that offer amazing views and access to a blue-stone patio that's like no other.
The bedrooms and bathrooms here are absolute perfections! With four bedrooms and three and a half baths, there's so much space. The master bedroom is just breathtaking – with unbelievable views, a second fireplace, and a sparkling, spacious bathroom with a claw-foot tub and walk-in glass shower. Another bedroom suite is currently used as a bunk room, BUT, if your sense of adventure extends to real estate ownership, this house could easily be shared by multiple parties. In the finished basement, there's even more space. It's currently being used as a family room/den, with space for a media "room", a pool table, and/or a home gym!
Adventure is calling...
When you need to get out, as we all do from time to time, here are your options:
Short car rides away from this tranquil retreat, you can wallow in Catskills adventure.
