Located in the sleepy town of Damascus, just ten minutes over the Delaware into the delightful river town of Callicoon, this contemporary farmhouse sits nestled back from the road on ten private acres, surrounded by neighbouring farmland. It has been meticulously renovated by its owner, a designer, and is offered for sale fully furnished. The home features a clean white board and batten exterior with a cedar shake roof. A beautiful soft rolling yard, fringed by a meadow of wild grass, aprons the home while the back deck overlooks endless fields, often punctuated with hay bales, as far as the eye can see.
Thoughtfully placed large windows and skylights flood the interior with natural light and create natural cross ventilation. A sleek but powerful wood-stove, engineered to heat more than the home's 2,200 square feet of living space, divides the open living room / dining room space. Dark ebony oak floors and an open staircase that runs through the middle of the home completes the cozy ambience.
The master suite is set back off the main floor with its own private deck and full bathroom. The bedroom features eight-foot glass doors that overlook an apple tree where deer like to gather at dusk.
The second floor has two additional bedrooms with large vaulted ceilings and salvage barn beams running through them. Both share a common area living space with a movie room, showcasing a large black steer with horns. Thick wool rugs, a six foot steel drinks bar and handfuls of luxury blankets will make this one of your favourite areas to cozy up with loved ones. A full bathroom is shared with a farmhouse sink, separated shower and skylight. Every window in the upstairs overlooks endless acres of bucolic Pennsylvania farmland.
Large glass doors on the main level lead to the back deck that overlooks countless acres of neighbouring farmland. The deck is level with the home, so it naturally blends in with the main floor’s living space. Outdoor speakers are camouflaged under the roofing and can be controlled with any bluetooth device.
A nine-foot grizzly bear guards over the twenty-foot cathedral-ceilinged living room. Multiple skylights bathe the room in sunlight during the day and then fill the ceiling with stars at night. Luxury furnishings complement the formal living room, ideal for entertaining.
The creamy white kitchen, built by local Amish carpenters, features soft-close custom drawers, double garbage bins, spice drawer and Waterworks faucet. Appliances include Fisher & Paykel refrigerator, Bosch Dishwasher and a six-burner gas Wolf range for serious culinary undertakings. Countertops are Brazilian dark granite with a chiseled edge.
This pristine farmhouse is unique and character-filled. The homeowner was uncompromising when it came to the home's craftsmanship and aesthetic. Buried power lines preserve the magical meadow views in all directions, and recent updates include new heating system (still under warranty) with Nest thermostat, commercial gutters, cedar shake roofing, board & batten siding, plumbing, and electric.
This storybook farmhouse is the perfect weekend retreat to enjoy relaxing time with your loved ones in a refined luxury retreat. The property is being sold fully furnished, so please inquire as to how this impacts a purchase that involves financing.
