Paradise found! Buy this 72.64-acre parcel at the end of the road above Livingston Manor, and you get 287,500 acres as a bonus! Just step across your property line and into the abutting Catskill Forest Preserve -- state land protected as forever wild forest. As tempting as that is, you may not want to leave your own property, though. You enter via a quarter-mile driveway that winds through the woods, pass through a level field and come upon a beautiful mountain pond that reflects the sky and the woods around it. The pond is created by Fall Brook, and is more like a small lake -- the water is clean and clear and kept refreshed by a massive concrete outflow structure. The outflow lets Fall Brook meander through the forest, which is a mix of hardwoods and conifers. This is a perfect place to build a luxury log home or contemporary -- or set up a family compound. The land is suited for all kinds of outdoor activities: hiking and hunting, quadding and snowmobiling, snowshoeing and cross-training. Paddle your kayaks around the pond, fish out of your rowboat, or just go for a swim. This property is 2 hours from NYC, 15 minutes from Livingston Manor and Route 17. You're close to the restaurants, shops and breweries in Livingston Manor and Roscoe -- not to mention the world-class fly fishing on the Willowemoc and Beaverkill trout streams.
