The home, called Minwawa, was built over 125 years ago in the Arts and Crafts style. At 7,000 square feet, the house has 7 bedrooms, multiple sitting areas, a 60′ long porch, and a stunning Mountain View. Overlooking a blueberry patch and five mountain peaks, the house is also surrounded by mature, 40’ trees and mossy grounds.
Original brass light fixtures were rescued, polished, rewired, and restored. Octogenarian rugs were steam-cleaned and repaired to reveal their original glory, but keeping their well earned patina. The original wood paneling and ceiling in both the dining room and living room were all meticulously stripped by hand. Over 50 windows on the ground floor, all over 100 years old, were carefully extracted and restored..
A modest 3-bedroom cottage and garage also sit on the property.
BARN (15 minute drive from main house)
Nestled in the heart of Catskill State Park, a rustic English Frame Barn and Prairie Barn with a grand 35’ ceiling sit in a mountain valley. The barn has full electricity, bathrooms and potable, running water and a gravel, 30-car parking area tucked out of sight. Permanent lighting in the form of antique hand-blown glass pendants add a dressed-up elegance to the space.
