Considered the oldest home in Callicoon--built in 1845, this cute house oozes charm. Set back behind a white picket fence, a front porch welcomes you. The yard contains gardens where you can watch the birdlife flit at the feeders. Perched behind the house is a writing cottage or studio, as well as a screened-in gazebo to enjoy the outdoors, a woodshed and a couple outbuildings. Spectacular ancient rock walls and terraces behind the home are a surprising delight. Inside, you'll find the house feels largely untouched-- original wide plank flooring and doors, tongue and groove woodwork, and high ceilings. The kitchen has been renovated to modern standards, though. You'll find many nooks and corners in which to relax or curl up with a good book. Downstairs is the LR, kitchen, bedroom, full bath, sunroom and screened-in porch. Upstairs, 2 more bedrooms, an office area, and full bath. With the home's age comes quirks-- there is no central heating source-- it stays warm with 2 woodstoves and LP gas wall heaters. You get views of Callicoon from the home, close enough to walk to the restaurants, shops, galleries, movie theater, Farmers market, community center, and the river. 15 minutes to Bethel Woods Center for the Arts.

Land Features
Level and flat around the home, there's a nice side and front yard. Great for gardening, as it receives full sun all day. There are areas of shrubs, bushes like forsythia and lilacs, open and treed, which draw in the bird life. The land slopes behind the house, and up above in the woods, you'll find old rock walls and terraces in remarkably great condition! Mature trees throughout.
