Attention Nature Lovers: Ever dream of your own lodge and ability to live off the grid; especially on your own 25-acre wildlife preserve with two ponds, totally free of any dependency on outside energy sources? Here is that unique haven opportunity two hours from NYC. Bordered by hundreds of acres of State Protected lands, this 2,652 square foot residential structure, with an attached barn-like huge garage, is custom constructed to code with locally harvested native Catskill lumber, from framing to finishing treatments. It features interior walls, doors, cabinetry, and accessories of native yellow birch, oak, and cherry ¾ by random width board paneling. Each board has been meticulously selected and vertically installed to accentuate each board’s grain and coloration characteristics. The exterior is sided with ­­­­pine board and batten installed over doubled 2x4 nine-inch wall frame thickness insulated to a super-high (50+) insulation R-value; the ceiling is insulated to super-high (75+) insulation R-value; heat loss is no issue. Ultimate comfort is provided by an earthen heat pump and solar-powered hot air system; hot water is provided by a heat pump heater. This tightly insulated dwelling, powered by solar, receives annual dollar credit from the regional utility company and is equipped with an automatic air exchanger and an emergency full-house L.P. generator. Windows are top-of-the-line Pella casement type with integral, as well as ­­­separate, insulated adjustable blinds. The lower level has an open floor plan with windows typical to upstairs level windows offering a multitude of future use options. Everything is custom built by a credentialed technologically discerning owner with an environmentalist John Burroughs type appreciation of the natural. Feel safe and secure here; protected by full-featured house alarm system; driveway entry alert; outside dusk to dawn lamplight on electric service pole, all optionally controlled. Enjoy high, high internet speed at 230Mps download/11Mps upload. A unique private country property in the low property tax township of bucolic Olive; zoned for three year-round dwelling units and bordered by forever-wild state lands.
