When you think of fun-filled family weekends, long summer vacations, or great winter ski/snowmobiling parties, this 11 plus acre modern Colonial is a picture-perfect example of a house built for fun. Ideal for families with kids, guests, and numerous in-laws, this home's imaginative floor plan makes accommodations forentertaining and living space. With a huge upstairs media / entertainment room with cathedral ceiling, large cultured stone wood burning fireplace, and built-in wet bar, you can be watching your favorite action flick, at full-volume surround-sound, while at the other end of the house, guests could be quietly reading a book. And everyone would be happy! When not watching movies, reading or sleeping, your party is sure to be in the grand, open kitchen / dining area complete with gas stove, large kitchen island, and great counter space. Sliding doors open the dining kitchen to a 54x10 wrap-around porch that looks out over the yard, including a large outdoor fire pit, ready-made for roasting smores and telling ghost stories. This space is truly inspired for entertaining large groups of kids and adults in a pristine Catskill Country Retreat. You can just hear the screams of joy as kids of all ages let loose their more rambunctious sides. No cooped-up Brooklyn apartments here. This place is built-for-fun. With 4 full private bedrooms and 4 baths, as well as an optional den/family room that can easily become a fifth bedroom with pull-out futons, the home can comfortably sleep 10 or more. The cedar-shake siding fits into the wooded location offering a quiet or secluded place in which you can rest and relax, while the modern design makes you feel like you're in a truly contemporary and refined establishment. Teak & Maple floors throughout, energy-efficient Anderson windows, large dry basement work-room, and large garage for toys, skis, snowmobiles, and atvs - this home truly is an entertainment retreat. The property is perched on a knoll with southwestern views of the Silver Lake valley and Bovina below from the second-floor 23x11 deck. Access is by way of a lovely winding driveway and bridge that crosses Tunis Lake stream, with numerous little waterfalls. Close to skiing, boating, hiking and a full-range of Catskill Mountain enjoyment, the house is also close to the great restaurants in Andes, Bovina and Delhi. And because it is part of the all-private Tunis Lake community, your family and guests will have access to tennis, paddle boats, basketball, and of course, beautiful Tunis Lake.
