Big Sky Pond is an exciting property featuring many of the amenities that make for a really great Catskills vacation. The expansive views of rolling countryside are visible from most of the rooms in the house, and it has a peaceful, calming influence. At the edge of the wide meadow is a thirty foot deep, swimmable pond, which has a dock, and just at the shoreline is a screened gazebo, for enjoying a memorable meal or just taking in the tranquil setting. Above the house is a tennis court featuring two basketball nets for a game of hoops.
The house, located on the border of Roscoe and North Branch, is sprawling yet welcoming. From the wide entrance foyer, a corridor to one side includes a bench with storage and serves as a kind of mud room. Off that are two largely identical bedrooms (2 twins each), each with French doors opening onto the wide deck out back, and a bathroom with shower.
Off the foyer on the other side is the living room with cathedral ceiling and the wide open views that make this home so appealing yearround. You'll want to lounge in the comfortable sectional that faces the two story stone fireplace, or head upstairs to the TV room to watch your favorite movie. The open plan space around the living room gives way to an ample dining table, and a spacious kitchen with breakfast bar.
Off the kitchen are two more bedrooms, each with a queen bed, and they share a bathroom with shower.
A staircase from the foyer leads up to the master suite, which features a large bedroom (queen) with a balcony that overlooks the whole backyard. Double doors open to a luxurious bathroom with steeping tub and tiled shower.
The wide deck running along the back of the house will be the favored spot during the warm months and is a great spot for barbecuing and just hanging out with your crew. There are pretty mowed pathways that run through the property, by stonewalls, the little feeder stream and the occasional apple tree.
