Located in New York’s Catskill mountains, with half-hour proximity to some of the finest outdoor recreation and trout fishing in the world, this property began as virgin land when the current owners carved out the ¼-mile driveway, before clearing for the guest house first, followed by the main residence, barn, pastures, and finally the storage garage. Construction took five years to finish. 

This is a completely-private compound situated in the middle of the 57-acre property, which itself resembles the wilderness preservation areas, state parks, and old-growth forests that virtually surround it on all sides. 

The new owner will be near endless recreation options including casinos, waterparks, and reservoirs, and world-class trout fishing at the Beaverkill, Willowemoc, and Neversink rivers, considered by many as the birthplace of American dry fly fishing, along with fine dining options, and entertainment venue Bethel Woods.

This is truly a-once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a rare, large-log, hand-hewn, Douglas Fir mansion, perfectly situated on 57 mountain-top acres providing the utmost in privacy, mountain views, and total serenity…all within a two-hour drive of the Big Apple.

The Hart Ranch. A majestic country estate, located in coveted Claryville NY on 57 park-like acres, this luxurious compound encompasses four free-standing buildings totalling 8,200 sq ft set amidst some of the most beautiful country in southeast New York. 

The primary residence and guest house are constructed with large, first-growth, hand-hewn, Douglas Fir logs from British Columbia, Canada, with the main residence offering five bedrooms and five baths, and a master suite located on the main level with private access to the patio.

Featuring a stunning chef’s kitchen, massive great room with valuated ceilings and towering windows, five magnificent stone fireplaces, and 100-year-old reclaimed Oak flooring throughout that give the entire home a feeling of richness and warmth impossible to replicate with new construction.

The main residence also includes a full bar, wine cellar, fitness room, and full bath completing the lower level. A spacious, fully-finished loft provides elevated vantage points and quiet respite from the occasional social event downstairs.

For backup power, comfort, and convenience are a generator, central AC, radiant heat, and a whole-house water conditioner system. No feature or amenity was overlooked in the construction and fitting out of this magnificent home. 

The 1,300 sq-ft, 1 bed/1 bath guest house provides visiting friends and family with the experience of a luxury, timberwood mountain-cottage; genuine, and full of warmth and character…pampering to the last detail. Here again, as in the main residence, the hand-hewn Douglas Fir logs are simply extraordinary. 

The two outbuildings sharing the property with the main residence and guest house include Mortise and tenon construction, and were created by a local artisan-builder using wood harvested from the property. 

Also onsite is a 40’ x 60’ garage/pickleball facility with an insulated 830 sq ft second floor, with heating and air conditioning, built using the local pinewood cleared for the construction of the main residence and guest house. As a dedicated garage, its two 11-ft, overhead, double-wide doors can house at least nine vehicles  for the car collector or enthusiast. This space is in addition to the three-bay garage near the main residence.

There is also a 1,200 sq ft, 30’ x 40’ horse barn on site, with hot and cold running water, lavatory, stalls and tack area, and a full loft that has been used by the current owners for various purposes such as an artists retreat, alfresco dining area, bunk house, and children’s play area. The fenced pastures are perfect for horses, and riding terrain throughout the 57-acre property is ideal for the seasoned hunter/jumper equestrian champion and beginning trail riders alike.

This rare opportunity is for those individuals who desire privacy and seclusion…a one-of-a-kind estate that will be the envy and delight of all….register to bid today!
