7456 Ny-268, Hancock

Situated on 73 acres in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains near the Village of Hancock, NY, this handsome property was once the centerpiece of a thriving hamlet with a one room schoolhouse, feed mill, and railroad stop. The home, which is over 100 years old, has a long and fascinating history, from its origins in the railroad and local timber industry to its prominent place in the story of catch-and-release fly fishing. The cozy and inviting living room in this home features a pocket door entry and a large, custom brick fireplace with built-in bookcase. The large eat-in kitchen boasts several unique custom features, including an antique wood and electric 1965 Monarch kitchen range that was recently completely rewired.The wood side of the stove is great for keeping food warm or adding a bit of warmth and humidity to the room on a chilly winter morning. There is also a double stainless steel sink, custom Italian porcelain tile flooring, a butcherblock countertop, and so much more. There are five bedrooms upstairs and a potential sixth bedroom downstairs that is currently used as a music room. Two of the upstairs bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bath with a large walk-in shower custom designed with locally sourced bluestone tiles. The other three bedrooms share a full bath with clawfoot tub and shower. The spacious and warm dining room features pocket doors with rod for hanging portieres, hand-printed Bradbury and Bradbury Apple Tree Frieze with custom trim, custom-designed pendant light to match frieze, transom windows, and swinging door to kitchen with custom dragonfly push plate. The attention to fine detail and elegance built into this home must be seen to be appreciated!
