A love of nature and a simple lifestyle
This lovely cottage is situated on five acres in the middle of the Catskill State Park in the Big Indian/Oliverea valley. It is surrounded by thousands of acres of forever-wild state land. The house sits slightly above a large meadow and a seasonal spring-fed brook and has mountain views in the front. In the back the land is wooded and rises up towards Panther Mountain. The closer proximity of the cottage has extensive landscaping, perennial gardens and stone walls. A wide variety of evergreens are intermixed with flowering shrubs and perennials. A forever changing landscape of light, color and textures makes each season a deeply satisfying experience. The cottage itself was built in the 1940s. It is well maintained and in excellent condition with beautiful fir wood floors. The central feature is a stone fireplace in the center, which was handcrafted with local river stones and now holds a wood stove. The kitchen, dining area and living room walls are wood. There are two recently renovated bedrooms, the master bedroom featuring a skylight. This sweet and cozy cottage is well suited for weekend living, retreat, or full-time residence as present owners have done for 12 years. This property supports a love of nature and a simple lifestyle.
