Welcome to Victory Farmhouse...
This renovated house sits on 20 acres which sprawls both sides of a country road. The house was built in 1847, and the floors and exposed hand cut beams are all original to the home.
The first floor features a chef's kitchen, full bathroom with clawfoot tub and shower, and an open plan living room and dining room. The wood burning stove is the focal point of the living room, creating a cozy and mesmerizing retreat from city life. The entire house is sprinkled with beautiful housewares that the owners love to collect. The back room of the house is a light filled studio space where guests can work if needed or feel inspired to start a crafty project.
Our favorite highlight on the first floor is the mural on the old plaster wall that was painted by a previous owner of the home many years ago in the 1950's. It's a map of the area when it was a German settlement in the 1800's. The mural has all of the houses from that time period, their original owners' last names and the points of elevation of each house. Victory Farmhouse is on the map!
The two bedrooms upstairs both have Queen beds, and the large upstairs bathroom has a big clawfoot tub that is amazing to soak in while looking out the window, reading a book or listening to a podcast. The upstairs den has a projector where you can log into your Netflix or other streaming accounts to watch your favorite shows and movies. The pull-out sofa is also located in the upstairs den.
There are two restored stone terraces at the back of the home. The smaller upper terrace is a wonderful place to have coffee and breakfast or a sip of wine while watching the sunset. The lower terrace is a great place to host and gather for dinners and BBQs. There is an electric outlet and a water pump connected to the lower terrace to allow for easy entertaining. The sunset on the lower terrace is pretty spectacular.
There is a secluded fire pit behind the farmhouse on the other side of the white fence. There are also some fenced in fruit frees in the same area (4 apple trees, 1 pear tree, 2 peach trees, 1 cherry tree, 1 sour cherry tree) - feel free to pick a few!
There is plenty of space to play games in the fields. There are frisbees, corn hole and horse shoes for guests to play. Feel free to bring your soccer ball. The land is also perfect for snowshoeing in the winter and the house has two pairs that guests may use.
The original barn across the street belongs to the property as well. Although the barn is off limits please feel welcome to explore the land surrounding the house, there is a lot of different terrain. Across the street from the house there are two fields and some woods with a scenic clearing that can be explored. Behind the house there are some fields and into the woods there is a fern forest and some pathways leading to an old stone wall hidden in the woods. To the right of the house there are pathways allowing you to walk through a meadow filled with golden rod and other native species.
A gorgeous walk up the road will lead you to the neighboring farm where you can pick up some fresh farm eggs from their cooler - it's an honor system $3.00/dozen. The home is rural while still being conveniently located to several great Catskills towns, such as North Branch, Callicoon, Youngsville, Roscoe, Narrowsburg and Livingston Manor, and was featured on DVEIGHT Magazine. Come stay!
