This immaculate homestead in Hamden is move-in ready for your vision of western catskills life.
The historic farmhouse itself is a legal 2 unit residence (and is currently set up as a semi-shared two family house), but could easily be utilized as a grand single family home, an income property, or a hybrid. With over 41 acres of gently to moderately rising land, composed of an almost exact 50/50 mix of meadow and mixed mature forest, and accessible from the network of quad and tractor trails, the views of the Western Delaware valley are awe-inspiring. In addition, the lot offers a 1/4 acre parcel across the street with real river frontage, including a gravel bank with easy water access looking up at the Hamden covered bridge.
Entering the property, the driveway splits into two distinct parking areas, providing optimal privacy and ease of access. The 2nd floor unit is the larger space, and boasts an enormous entry deck and covered porch area for relaxation. A living room with pellet stove opens up to the 3 bedroom space. Original hardwood floors and historic charms make the home an inviting space. The kitchen is well appointed, has a walk-in pantry, and there is a walk-up attic space with room for storage or creative utilization. The first floor unit is entered by the side porch, into a renovated kitchen with a deep basin double farmhouse sink. The bedroom space is massive, and a hallway leads to the bathroom, dining room, and large living room.
Ascending the land, you move through open former farm fields, a scent-shed with valley views (and another in the far northeast property corner), a small teardrop pond which could likely be expanded into a giant hillside swim pond, fruit trees and wild berries, and eventually into delightful mixed woods with trails and scattered sunlight filtering to the ferns below.
The location is just on the edge of burgeoning Hamden, in between Delhi and Walton, and only 2:20 to the GWB. Family, friends and guests will love the valley views, kayaking, covered bridge, regional hiking and biking, locally sourced goods from the Hamden General Store, and a night out at the Hamden Inn. So much to offer with one property, don't let this one pass you by!
