This gracious home served as the Parsonage for a small country church in the bucolic Catskill Mountain hamlet of New Kingston. The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a formal dining room, a comfortable living room, a country kitchen and family room. A wrap around rocking chair porch, wide plank wood floors, generous room sizes, wooden built ins cabinetry, wide moldings, a claw foot tub and details dating back to the mid 1800 s make this home appealing and inviting. The home is deeply rooted in the past but has been updated for modern life, with updates including a DEP septic installed in 2007, new heating system and several newer energy efficient windows. Adding to the function of this attractive home is a mudroom and a small, manageable barn that is ideal for storage, raising chickens or whatever you can imagine. Open fields and woodland forest border the back of the property. Take in the lovely views from the rocking chair porch or go raspberries & blackberry picking at the back of the property. Minutes to the 4 season Catskill villages of Margaretville & Andes and just over the mountain are both Belleayre Mountain Ski Center and Plattekill Mountain Ski Center. Other area activities include hiking, swimming, fishing, boating, golfing, restaurants and shopping. Located on half an acre this is a must see.
