Welcome to your white and green farmhouse on two acres in a private community, tucked on a quiet back road in Forestburgh in Sullivan County, an easy 2 hours from NYC, only 15 minutes to Metro North train in Port Jervis. When you become a member of this nature lover's private club you will have use of the four lakes and 7500 acres owned by the club. You can walk in the woods, mountain bike, swim, play tennis, go shooting, fishing and hunting. The 1925 clubhouse is just one of the community buildings you can enjoy once you are a member. Perfect country retreat for you and your family, all four seasons offer amenities you can enjoy. The Broker will be glad to share more information about this club.
1883 is the date etched in the old stone at the house. Of course there have been updates since then, but that original charm is seen and felt throughout this 4 BR, 2 bath home.
The living room has a stone fireplace, the eat in kitchen has built in wainscoting cabinetry, and the piano room has bay windows that look out to fields and woods. The stone wall and walkway to the front sunporch is not used as much as the side kitchen door but looks as inviting as ever.
There's a bedroom on the first floor, with tin ceiling - and walls, too, a bathroom as well.
Pretty stairs with classic banister lead up to the 2nd floor where you'll find 3 more bedrooms and a full bath. Pick your room, maybe the big blue and white BR with intricate tin ceiling and walls and lots of windows with rose covered curtains, or the small little girl's BR with old fashioned wallpaper. Or is the green and white BR with its 2 big beds and the tin ceilings and walls going to be yours?
The electric is upgraded, there is oil hot air heat, a drilled well, newer roof and windows.
Attached to the house is a garden storage shed and a garage. Bountiful blueberry bushes.
Across the road you own a concrete block building the owners use for storage, many years ago it was an old gunsmith shop.
This sweet farmhouse, part of of a unique historic private community, may just be what you and your family have been hoping to find!
