48 Butternut Knolls, West Shokan, NY 12494
This property is a wonderland. Take a light-filled home with cathedral ceilings, skylights, sliding glass doors and set it, like a jewel, amidst a lovingly landscaped lot with a saline inground pool, a gazebo, a fire pit and a pergola where you can dine or sit and relax rain or shine. It will become your own secret garden.. It is hard to imagine a more seductive escape from the city. Fenced for your pets (including an "invisible fence" as well), with charming pathways throughout, surrounded by woods, this multi-faceted property is a place to relax and regenerate. And although not large acreage, it is sufficiently private. Is there a more gorgeous gathering space for friends or family? While the county lists it as three bedrooms, the large first-floor office with a full bathroom, closet and privacy doors can easily become a bedroom. Kitchen features new appliances: Bertazzoni stove, GE Profile refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher. And there is a brand-new whole-house generator in case the lights were to go out. Other features include decking leading out to your garden paradise, not to mention the peace and quiet of being on a dead-end country crescent, yet convenient to all the Catskills have to offer, including minutes to the Shokan Rail Trail along the reservoir. No more al fresco dinners spoiled by bad weather: let it rain while you raise your glass and hear the rain make its music on the pergola with you and your party underneath it. And when Nature cooperates, raise your glass to the stars while sitting around the fire pit. It may not get much better than this.
