A winding private driveway leads up to Rock Pond, a rare offering, featuring three dwellings (two year-round and one seasonal) on substantial acreage (72 acres), about 10 minutes from Route 17 and the pretty town of Livingston Manor. The property has all the elements of a relaxing Catskill country retreat, with expansive views across a tree-lined meadow, a picturesque swimming pond with diving rocks, and myriad trails leading through a lush woodland.
The Main House has been renovated to maximize light and create a pleasing flow, and is partially sided with cool corrugated metal. It has two bedrooms which accommodate a queen bed in each, two full bathrooms with tubs/showers, a laundry/utility room and a large open plan living room/dining area with French doors that open onto the substantial deck. A day bed has been tucked into the third bedroom which is currently used as an office to double as a room for the occasional guest. There is an anteroom between the living room and the master suite, where French doors open to the deck.
The renovated kitchen, with handy center island, provides plenty of storage both in conventional cupboards, and in contemporary open shelving. It flows into the living and dining areas, and yet another set of French doors by the dining area open to a screened porch that has been used alternately for al fresco dining or as a dreamy sleeping porch. French doors on the south-facing side of the living room open to a large deck with sweeping views of open meadow and over toward the picturesque pond. The main house also has a very civilized, walk-out basement with workshop and bathroom.
The Guest House is perched off to the right of the driveway, tucked in at the edge of the woods, with a sunny front deck. The stone fireplace in the living room is a focal point of the open plan kitchen/living/dining space, while a large, sunken bedroom/studio with exterior access is off that space. The other two bedrooms and bathroom with tub/shower are sited down a corridor.
The alluring one bedroom/one bath Cottage, which is across the meadow and well-screened by mature trees, has recently been renovated and is a terrific, open and airy space. It features cathedral ceilings and French doors that open to a deck and wonderful gardens with flowers and raised-beds for growing all your veggies.
The land itself provides diverse terrain for satisfying your nature-loving needs, including numerous trails that provide pleasing access to the rolling acreage, much of which is under conservation easement, and therefore remains protected from development. There is a pretty, level clearing at a distant remove from the existing dwellings that is not part of the easement.
Rock Pond is within walking distance of Lake Waneta, for fishing and swimming, and is convenient to some of the premier trout fishing rivers in the Northeast, including the Beaverkill and Willowemoc.
