190 Lasher Road, Shandaken, NY 12410
Adjacent to a stream on a quiet country road in the heart of the Catskills is this idyllic 3BD/2BA farmhouse. Built in 1900 and in the same family since 1953, it’s been freshly painted and lovingly renovated by the owners with new floors, appliances, and fixtures. The 1,628sf light-filled interior includes a large country kitchen with reclaimed wood accents and a large pantry, a spacious living/dining space with a woodstove, three bedrooms on the second floor and an unfinished third floor attic space that could easily be converted into an office, studio or additional sleeping quarters. Set on one acre with no neighbors in sight, the landscaped yard includes a firepit and is filled with an assortment of trees including Dogwood, Japanese Red Maple, Magnolia, Siberian Pea, Lilac, Montmorency Cherry (which is quite productive in the spring), October Pear, Giant Spruce and Sugar Maples, to name just a few. The location is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts. A short stroll leads to the Esopus Creek (last two photos in the listing) where you can take a dip or go fly fishing. The Giants Ledge trailhead and Belleayre ski access are each five minutes away. And a few minutes further is the Slide Mountain trailhead where you can hike to the highest peak in the Catskills. Foodies will find plenty of farm-to-table options to satiate their culinary cravings. Walk to Peekamoose Restaurant, drive a few minutes to the Public House at Urban Cowboy Lodge, the Lodge at the Shandaken Inn, the Phoenicia Diner and Woodstock Brewery.
