1650 Bodoit Rd., Fishs Eddy, NY 13774
Evocative natural beauty meets boundless possibility on this 200-acre estate nestled into a corner of the Catskill mountains. This sprawling compound on the Delaware River, with multiple residences and acres to explore, is a secluded and restorative retreat for friends, family or guests just two-and-a-half hours from New York City, outside the hamlet of Fishs Eddy. Lush gardens and manicured fields give way to forested, rolling terrain framed by the mountains and over half a mile of river frontage with exclusive rights. The estate’s four buildings, which include a main house and an entertainment lodge, comprise 30,000 square feet and 29 bedrooms that can accommodate as few as two or as many as 72 people at a time. Multiple chef’s kitchens, great rooms and fireplaces set the scene for epic meals and gatherings, while a pool, hot tub and stone fire pit lure visitors outdoors. Coffee on the back porch, drinking in the views, can segue to hiking, horseback riding, or trout fishing on the East Branch Delaware River. This property offers unusual flexibility as a primary residence, creative or corporate retreat, spa, riding camp or even performance venue. Surrounded by 1,000 acres of conservation land and the rich creative spirit of the Catskills, its opulent grounds and lodge-like nooks and crannies provide ample space for artists and writers, leaders and strategists, brides and grooms, with plenty of room to roam or ride. Less than 10 minutes away is an airport, giving easy access for those arriving by small planes. A private blue-stone quarry, natural gas rights, hardwood forests, and opportunity for sub-development add to the flexibility of this estate. Whether as a private sanctuary or the setting for a new creative or commercial venture, this estate’s distinctive sense of place rejuvenates and restores in all four seasons.
