Just 95 miles from New York City, Magnolia Lake House is serenely perched on the shores of Lake Barnabee, in the Catskills foothills. This recently renovated home is calm, cool, and collected; additionally, the property adjoins a second home for sale, with the option to purchase both. Tiny Ferndale is a hamlet in the town of Liberty.
Three-bedroom, three-bathroom home has 1,744 square feet on .11 acres. with a private lakefront, a large sundeck, a dock, a screened porch, an exercise room, a lounge, and a wet bar. It’s on municipal water/sewer.
It’s short-term rental friendly! It’s been rented through Red Cottage Inc. and they’ve pre-extended an invite for the new owner(s) to continue renting.
The living area flows off to the screened porch overlooking the lakefront. In the summer, this is the hub. Grill while keeping an eye out while the kids jump into the lake. Or sunbathe with friends within arm’s reach of a cocktail.
The main house features three bedrooms and three bathrooms, along with a finished and well-designed basement that has an additional pull-out sofa in the TV lounge and a small exercise space. Along with two bedrooms (one queen and one king), the main floor hosts an open plan and fully stocked kitchen and living room. The upstairs has a bedroom with two twin beds. There is one full bathroom on each floor.
Glass sliding doors open to the screened porch which overlooks the water. In the summer, this is the hub, with grilling outside the door and watching the kids frolic in the lake. Picture your perfect dock, while the Indian Lake HOA places another float in the middle of the lake, making for a fun swimming destination. You can kayak and paddleboard for 3 seasons.
The Magnolia Lakehouse is flanked by a separate listing, Magnolia Carriage House on an adjoining parcel. The two houses are situated on two separate parcels and may be purchased separately or together. There is currently a catwalk connecting the two, which will be removed in the event of separate purchases.
