649 Oscawana Lake Road
Own a piece of Putnam Valley History! This lovely 3-bedroom 2 full bath 2200 sq ft Ranch home was once the site of the original Oscawana Heights one-room schoolhouse. Its original steps are still in place, enhanced by a wrought-iron arch that was added at a later date. Idyllically set on 1.4 park-like level acres, this property invites you to the meticulously cared for yard full of fruit trees, specimen plantings, sugar maple trees that were tapped yearly and a stately, century-old red oak tree. Enter the home through a convenient mudroom with custom built-ins and a wall of closets. Enjoy the open floor plan with hardwood floors, 2 dining areas and a wood-burning stove to warm you on those chilly nights and save on your electric bills! Cook like a pro with a gas stove or move through the sliding glass doors to the expansive deck for BBQing or entertaining family and friends. Retire to your oversized master bedroom with a sitting area, walk-in closets and a private balcony trimmed with fragrant honeysuckle vines. Two more spacious bedrooms with ample closets and an updated bathroom complete the first floor. Need even more space? Make your way up to the finished attic with skylights and lots of storage. It's even hardwired for the internet if you need an office space. The possibilities are endless for this multi-use area. Spend your days swimming, boating and fishing from the sandy beach area off of Silleck Rd on the treasured Oscawana Lake, one of the few motorboat lakes in Putnam County. Or take a hike on one of the many trails of the nearby Fahnestock State Park. Some of the many updates include a reverse osmosis water system, full house automatic switch over Generac generator, oversized gutters with 6" screens, propane gas for an HW heater, a grill and stove, a new well pump, 200-amp electrical service, automatic garage door and a private boat rack down at the beach.
