From the agent: "This 41-acre, ultra-private culinary farmstead lies at the foothills of the Catskill range with striking mountain views, open meadows, and deep pine forest. A long driveway lined with stone walls leads you into the property, where you’ll find the circa-1850 home. The traditional farmhouse was expanded in 2020 with a sensational modern addition of stacked stone quarried on the property and a floor-to-ceiling glass wall showcasing views of wildflower fields and shimmering rock outcroppings."

Fishcreek Farm sits on a 41-acre property with sweeping views of New York’s Catskill Mountains.

The residence is set amidst a grassy field on the edge of a forest. 

A fully screened-in porch provides a wonderful place to host dinner and watch the sun set over the neighboring mountains. 

"You'll find 16-foot vaulted ceilings and salvaged hand-hewn beams in the jaw-dropping kitchen," states the listing.

The kitchen features a Lacanche range, custom inset cabinetry with solid brass hardware, Italian marble countertops, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, two dishwashers, and an under-the-counter ice machine, wine refrigerator, and custom built-in wood-burning pizza oven. 

The dining room features double-height ceilings and floor-to-ceiling glazing. 

A moody study off the dining area exudes 19th-century opulence.

The colonial farmhouse is full of surprises. A cathedral-style side window adds a bit of enchantment to the home’s exterior.

Hardwood flooring and a wide central staircase greet guests as they enter through the large front door. 

The light-filled living room features exposed wood beams that foster a cozy atmosphere.

The den caters to entertaining with a lovely bar with floor-to-ceiling cabinetry and shelving.  

Atop the staircase is a cheerful reading nook. 

The primary bathroom fully finished in brick and hexagonal tiles in black and white. The shower features a bench seat beside one of the second-floor windows. 

The secondary bedroom is decorated in a lovely green Victorian wallpaper, complimented by white-framed windows and baseboards. 

"Next door, the antique barn with its uniquely curved windows has been converted into a studio/guesthouse with a full bath that can be used as a home office," states the listing.

The barn, with long tombstone springline windows, is clad in shou sugi ban cypress sourced from Japan.

The guesthouse’s full bathroom has a walk-in shower and vintage sink with gold-finished appliances. 

"As you wander down into the western meadow with the mountaintop looming over, you’ll find a large firepit and a summer kitchen inspired by Francis Mallman’s Patagonian home. The structure has a designated well, hot water, a refrigerator, and a propane stove. It is wired for internet and stands on a bluestone patio with an outdoor shower on the far exterior wall," states the listing.

Surrounding the greenhouse, the curated garden has antique cast-iron gates and an irrigation system for vegetable and flower farming.

"The greenhouse is supplied with heat and internet, and is a spectacular setting for outdoor dinners. There has been substantial investment in the infrastructure, including radiant heat, electric heat pumps for heating and cooling, a full-house generator, hardwired speakers, and smart home automation," explains the listing.

The home is equidistant from Saugerties and Woodstock, and the Opus 40 sculpture lies just a short walk from the property. The farm is two hours from New York City.
