Bring your row boats, canoes, and fishing poles! You can fish in your very own Reservoir. This property brings you back to nature with all of the water features on this Catskill Mountain paradise! Water, water and more water!!! The property you have been waiting for is here! This is an 1898 Colonial two bedroom home with a total of 60.20 acres including 2 ponds, a beautiful waterfall and a reservoir. The wooded acreage contains 3 bodies of water, the largest and most secluded was a secondary supply reservoir for the Cairo Water Company constructed in 1937. This upper reservoir supplied water to the main reservoir located 1/2 mile downstream and was a necessary addition as the Town of Cairo grew during the war years. The farmhouse has been continuously inhabited since 1898. The two ponds in the back yard can be enjoyed from the large windows while sitting cozy in the family room on those snowy winter nights or from the open 16′ x 27′ deck while barbecuing. The large 19′ x 20′ family room was added in 1997 and provides an upper deck offering sweeping views of the mountains and two large ponds. There is a hot tub is accessed upstairs from the master bedroom through sliding glass doors overlooking the huge back yard. Lovely, landscaped yard and flowering lilacs and dogwoods and a multitude of other species of trees and flowering plants can be seen around the yard. The large back room provides an upper deck offering mountain views, overlooking the ponds. There are plenty ways to stay warm and comfy on those long winter nights. Just put on one of the 3 wood stoves in the house for added ambience. Upstairs in the master bedroom there is a nice pot belly wood stove, a pellet stove in the living room and a propane heater stove in the family room.
