Description: See mls listing 20230667. This is the Mansion house of an estate for sale. You can buy the Mansion house singly or or buy both properties together. Step back into time... This house was designed and engineered by Waldo Smith who was the engineer on the Ashokan Reservoir project. The House was built with large cement bricks which were molded into alternating patterns on the outside of the house. These cement blocks were made at the Rosendale Cement yard and were known to be the strongest in the world. The same blocks that were used in the construction of the Olivebridge Dam. This was also the family home of actor Chevvy Chase. The house was totally renovated in recent years by the current owner and is move in ready. The built in saline pool is only 10 years old with a brand new pump and heater. There are underground propane lines that lead to the back of the 2 car garage for the pool, the stove and the generator which has a battery backup system in the basement. What a bonus!
There is a brick fireplace in each house as well as small fit pits outside for each dwelling. Both houses have full basements with dirt floors and new electric hot water heaters. The house has a brand new Buderas boiler that heats up the cast iron radiators real fast making the home nice and cozy on those winter nights. The mansion floors are made of beautiful red oak. There is a screened on gazebo overlooking the Ashokan Reservoir. The house sits up over looking the 12 miles of the beautiful Ashokan Reservoir with stunning views. This property is a one of a kind....and so peaceful and serine. You have privacy and feel like you are miles from nowhere when in fact you can be in Kingston or Woodstock in 15 minutes. Please come take a look at this gorgeous piece of property. You will not regret it.
