WEEDWILD - the former PAKATAKAN ARTIST COLONY- is a NATIONAL HISTORIC DISTRICT- containing 4 of the ORIGINAL SHINGLE STYLE MOUNTAINSIDE STUDIOS and RESIDENCES built by the CATSKILL MOUNTAIN school of landscape artists dating circa 1890. The property is PERFECT to continue as an ARTIST RESIDENCE, or as a RETREAT in the midst of the world created such a long time ago by painters who strove towards blending in with nature The property consists of 5 buildings (4 ORIGINAL ONES BUILT IN 1890 and one built in 1912 as a garage, now a POTTERY STUDIO) The rambling property is not easily described in a limited space, that is why a FEATURES MEMO has been attached, describing each building. The buildings are NESTLED in the WOODS, with many WOODLAND GARDENS and PATHS. A STREAM borders the property, and is ADJACENT to 120+ acres of STATE LAND. Another MEMO describes the HISTORY of the Colony, as well as the relationship of the current owner (a painter) to the property. The LOCATION could not be better, 2.5 hours from the GWB and 10 minutes to the BELLEAYRE ski center.
