About 307 Peck Road
Back on the Market with Price Improvement and subdivision approved by the Town of Olive. Upgraded 200 amp electrical service in the house and now, 100 amp service in the garage. This Dutch Gambrel Colonial (c.1925) offers views of the Ashokan Reservoir Basin and High Point Mountain, and sits on 5 pristine acres — a perfect encapsulation of what it means to live in the Catskills. Passed down, and meticulously cared for by one family—each generation savoring it as much as the previous (98 years & 4 generations!). Such charm and original beauty is rare. Stepping stones lead you to a covered entry porch, and into a gracious foyer covered en toile. A charming stairway, circular flow, and higher ceilings immediately draw you in. Step left for dinner with friends by a crackling fire, or step right onto rich hard wood floors and a grand Living Room with a glass sliding door that opens to a deck and marvelous views beyond. Just off the living room are spaces to entertain, or to be alone in quiet solitude—a bright sun room or the huge deck each surrounded by magical locust trees and wide open skies. Hot cocoa in the sunroom in winter—or, BarBQ overlooking the landscape spring, summer, and fall. There’s a bath on the first floor, the kitchen has the original porcelain sink and drain board flanked by light blue, built-in country cabinetry. From the kitchen window, gaze out at end-to-end mountains set below a rising sun reflecting delicious colors off the reservoir. This is the first time this 4 bedroom, 2 bath home has been on the market since it was originally built by the Peck family. Upstairs, just off a precious landing, are 4 bedrooms and a full bath. Windows let in light galore. Look out over the stone walls and wild flowers by day and enjoy quiet restful nights. There’s a full basement, 3 car garage, and storage shed. You are smack dab in the Catskills yet 15 minutes to Woodstock or Phoenicia. Close to skiing, mountain climbing, summer swims at Pine Hill Lake, The Rail Trail, or gourmet dining and shopping. There are also myriad hiking trails—and you could become a member of the Catskill 3500 club (33 peaks!?). This untouched piece of history is ready for your imagination and updates. This is a special home in a unique location with an eye out to the world of the Hudson Valley that you just might not want to leave.
