The farmhouse has been lovingly updated with modern and high quality amenities while retaining the charm and simplicity of another time. Enjoy the spring-fed, saltwater pool and open meadows for running and playing to your heart's content. The all original, hand-hewn 3,000 sq ft English barn is dated between 1810 and 1850 is in exceptional condition per engineer report. The metal roof has kept the inside of the barn dry. There is a lower level that was once used to entertain guests and still houses a 20 foot wet bar with hand made tin mood lighting and a poured concrete slab. The barn overlooks the pool and pond and has incredible potential, with significant improvements, for creating an awesome and open multipurpose space or can be used as a garage, wood shop, artist space or for storage. At Straw Hill Farm you'll enjoy endless hiking trails, old apple trees, a spring fed pond, established organic garden, outdoor cedar shower, rocking chair front porch, stone work, abundant wildlife and song birds and incredible sunsets -- this is paradise in the Catskill Mountains. Don't miss the well groomed and hidden private campsite with a beautiful firepit, outdoor compost toilet and 14'x20' cedar deck for used for yoga, meditation, and music flanked by two awesome maple trees and several massive glacier stones. Newly planted cedar trees and endless raspberries surround this very special spot. The magic here is the secluded location set on a town maintained dead end road within the Catskill Park, the property is just a couple of miles from state hiking trails, dramatic waterfalls, and streams and swimming holes to delight anyone including fly-fishing enthusiasts! There is a well respected local caretaker who can help out the new stewards of this magnificent property may need assistance.
