Escape the hustle of city life with this enchanting pondside retreat just two hours north of New York City. Set on over 6 acres and comprised of two charming cottages, a serene pond, and a tennis court awaiting revival. This property offers a unique canvas for personalized tranquility. The first cottage features two bedrooms, two baths, and an open-plan design with a stone fireplace, while the second cottage, a one-bedroom guesthouse (or think AirBnB) boasts a deck overlooking the same idyllic pond. Nestled near Vernooy Kill State Park and Rondout Reservoir, this haven beckons outdoor enthusiasts with fishing, row boating, and waterside strolls. Just a stone's throw away from the quaint town of Ellenville, residents can enjoy the cultural delights of Shadowland Stages, a renovated art deco theater showcasing professional productions of contemporary plays and musicals. Ellenville also offers a variety of fine restaurants, making it an ideal locale for those who appreciate culinary experiences. The area further invites exploration with opportunities for antiquing, hiking trails, and the chance to savor craft brews at local breweries and a delightful cidery. Seize the opportunity to make this retreat your own, tailor it to your desires, and embrace a lifestyle of upstate serenity amidst the vibrant Catskill Mountains.
