Why settle for a piece of the rock'' when you can own an 80-acre slice of history''? Turnpike Road, a.k.a. The Catskill Turnpike, helped open this Great Western Catskill region to travelers, explorers, and farmers. In the late-1800's, this was the central artery for the growing dairy industry that supplied milk products directly to New York City.*** THE BARN *** While many things along this gorgeous road have changed, the rolling valleys, peaks, and period architecture still provide spectacular vistas and restorative escapes. The barns along this route are simply breathtaking cathedrals of commercial cattle farms from a by-gone era, and yet 12525 Turnpike Road offers a rare opportunity to possess a truly fine example of one of these barns that has been completely restored, protected and preserved -- from the new composite roof, through all three floors, and down to the completely reinforced foundation - this brilliant architecture is yours to use or just appreciate for years to come (it even has heat and a full bathroom).*** THE FARMHOUSE *** The accompanying farmhouse is now a fully livable retreat with 3 bedrooms plus a bonus room, 1 full bath, plus a convenient half bath on the ground floor. The great open kitchen/living space is completed by a magical sunroom that overlooks 2 of the property's 3 ponds and the Kortright Creek Valley below. Like the barn, the home has received the benefit of caring owners - completely restored from the foundation to the roof -- all-new electrical service, plumbing, and energy-efficient windows are accented with reclaimed features that include reclaimed barn-wood flooring and original doors. The kitchen has been completely re-imagined with new cabinets, stainless steel appliances, gas stove and hidden dishwasher. A door connects to the 2-car garage on one side, while the open end flows into the living room, anchored by a vintage mid-century modern porcelain enamel Malm fireplace, and that great sunroom.There is a full bath and 2 bedrooms on this floor, each with sliders to the massive deck. You may have trouble selecting a favorite spot on this property, but this deck will certainly be on the top of everyone's list - think morning coffee, grilling grass-fed burgers, and sunset and star-lit cocktails.Upstairs, there is a fantastic 2-room suite with large sitting area and separate bedroom (use both rooms as a 3rd and 4th bedrooms when you need the space).The ground floor has received loving care, as well, with a completely finished space great for TV, billiards, and other recreation! Plus laundry and a door to the lower patio.80 acres with views-to-die-for, 3 ponds, trails for horseback riding snowmobiling and all-day hiking, 3-floor restored dairy barn and minutes from area attractions of Cooperstown, Oneonta, Delhi, Stamford and all the riches of the Western Catskills.
