Custom Log Home with Garage and Pond on 37 acres in Berkshire NY 75 Phillips Road


Custom log home on 37 acres with a 3 acre pond in Berkshire NY.

No details left out on this fine custom-built Beaver Mountain Log Home.  Located in the Town of Berkshire on Phillips Road which is a dead end town road.  This well-outfitted Custom Log Home has a lot to offer.  As you enter the property from Phillips Road you will approach the house winding through the woods on a paved driveway and come into a park-like setting surrounding the house.  The 1,284 square foot log home was built in 1987 with 1 bedroom and an upstairs loft with 2 full baths.  There is a full poured concrete basement with large windows and a walkout door with potential to add additional bedrooms.  The interior of the home is bright and sunny with plenty of windows and a cathedral ceiling in the living room area.  Lazy sunny days can be spent on the covered porch overlooking the backyard.  There is a 3 bay oversized garage close to the house to park your vehicles and outdoor equipment.

The interior of the home has been meticulously maintained.  There are gleaming hardwood floors in the living room area, with tile flooring in the kitchen.  On the front of the house, there is a nice sized 12 x 24 deck overlooking the front yard that leads down to an oval 15 x 30 swimming pool with a solar heater.  The pool has had the liner recently replaced and there is a large deck that surrounds the pool.  Great spot for summer gatherings and pool parties. On the first floor there is one bedroom and a full bathroom.  The second floor consists of an open 11 x 22 loft with knotty pine floors and its own full bathroom with closet space.  Some additional luxuries in the home include central air conditioning, central vacuum, dishwasher, and a hi-efficiency forced air LP furnace.  The shingled roof was replaced last fall with 30 year shingles.  The kitchen has well laid out working area and is very spacious with plenty of counter top space and custom built knotty pine cabinets with a modern cooktop stove oven.  There is a Vermont castings wood stove on its own designated block chimney to help with heating costs and as a back up source of heat.

If you love wildlife and the outdoors, this property has some amazing woods and a 3 acre pond that is located just a short walk up the hill behind the house.  There are several hiking and ATV trails throughout the property and there are some fields near the pond area that have grown up that could be reclaimed for pasturing horses or other livestock.  There is a state snowmobile trail that crosses the far back side of the property and Jenksville State Forest is only a few short miles away for an additional 1,300 acres of recreational public land to use.  There is no gas lease and all the Oil, Gas and Mineral Rights convey.  Move-in ready and a very private location.
