This turnkey home is being sold fully furnished and is ready for its new owner. Just bring your toothbrush! The set up offers both a fantastic country experience, with ease of use and low maintenance. Less than three miles from the Livingston Manor exit, it takes no time to get to the house, but once there, the peace and tranquility are undeniable. There is a level lawn, both front and back, and a deck off the living room, so barbecues and lounging and time around the fire pit can be enjoyed. And woodland adventures may be had, starting with the tree fort that's been built just inside the treeline.
The front porch presents a gracious welcome, and the requisite rocking chairs are in place. Once inside the house the open plan reveals a spacious living room with stone fireplace and French doors out to the deck. A dedicated dining area is convenient to the kitchen beyond. The laundry is tucked down a corridor to the side which also leads to the back of the house, and to the attached two-car garage.
Off the living room is short hallway that leads to the large, bright master bedroom, which has a generous walk-in closet. The bedroom also enjoys direct access to the bathroom, which also opens to the hall, and which has a tub/shower.
Upstairs are two large bedrooms and a separate full bathroom, again with tub/shower. A small lounge space currently serves as added sleeping quarters/TV viewing spot.
A brief stroll down the quiet road along Trojan lake there are several narrow strips of privately owned land that attach to area homeowners who are not otherwise lakefront. This home has one of those lakefront parcels and it's a multi-season attraction, from boating and fishing, to swimming. There is a wood dock (it's seen better days) and the red canoe is there awaiting your arrival. Time it right and you can pluck a few blueberries from the bushes that lead to the dock.
In spite of the very quiet surroundings, just a few miles away Livingston Manor has been making news on a regular basis as being the "It" town in The Catskills for that right balance of country life and quality amenities that are making this such a sought-after area.
