Imagine owning an 11.5 acre family compound on your very own Private Lake in the middle of 13,500 Forever Wild Acres. Nestled in the middle of the Balsam Lake Mountain Preserve sits this magnificent Log Home and Guest Cabin. Originally built for one the founding members of the Balsam Lake Anglers Club in 1965. It was the dream of escaping NYC for the Catskill Mtns that still carries forward till today. This owner had a vision, he wanted to be off the grid and completely remote with only nature as a companion or, those lucky enough to have accompanied him to this magnificent Catskills Retreat. Upon entering under the archway, you immediately begin to feel a sense of peacefulness. As you drive parallel to the Bearverkill Creek - you would never know this 3-bedroom log home, totally hydro powered, existed. Complete with a guest cabin, post &beam barn and European Sauna house. The home was constructed on site by a Finnish Family from WI and the logs are from the Adirondacks. The stunning fireplace is a main focal point of the great room until your eyes wander to the lake just 100 feet from the house. The view is as organic as it gets. Though the entire compound derives its electric from hydro power you would never know it. This is such a rare find there are no words to even give the description it deserves. It is one of a kind- 22 miles of hiking trails within mile walk. The highest peak is 3,723ft and part of the Catskills 3500. Just an unspoiled Mountain Lake and Homestead nestled in- all for you and only you. Privacy is an understatement. Being off the grid...you can truly disappear here.-
