8011 State Route 55
Expertly renovated in 2018, think of Chestnut Creek House as a modern base camp, quite literally at the base of the Catskill Park and just over 100 miles to New York City. There are plenty of rivers and tributaries in the Catskill Park, but houses with stream frontage are rare. Nestled between a private brook and 44 acres of protected land, this is a unique find. The open kitchen/dining area blends modernity and nature, with stainless steel appliances, bluestone flooring and oversized windows. Warm your hands at the wood stove in the living room, and take in the babbling stream from the serene sunroom. All 3 bedrooms are spacious and have plenty of WFH space. The primary room also has a large sitting area, while the upstairs guest room has a sunny window lounge. The upstairs bath features luxurious side-by-side rainfall shower heads. The partially-finished walkout basement with its lounge, game room, and weightlifting studio is ripe with man cave potential. Outside, grill on the roomy front porch, gather at the streamside fire pit and relax on the back patio. Chestnut Creek House is minutes from enviable swimming holes, hiking, and fly fishing on the Neversink.
