Home Willow Creek Manor is the epitome of the perfect upstate playground. An ideal gathering place, this fully down-to-the-studs gut renovated modern farmhouse has room for the whole group to easily spread out and relax. Entering the front door, you walk into the stunning, tiled mudroom. To the left is an expansive recreation room with two sets of french doors leading to a covered outdoor area ideal for grilling. As this room was previously a double garage, the owner thoughtfully left the original header and the flooring which is weight rated for 5 tons; so if the next steward of Willow Creek Manor happens to be a car enthusiast, the space can easily be converted back to it’s original purpose. Enter next into the kitchen finished with elegant wood accents, tile flooring, brand new stainless steel, energy-efficient appliances, and so much counter space that makes cooking large meals a breeze. An abundance of cabinetry provides enough hiding places for all of the tools needed to host large gatherings seamlessly. Walk from the bright and airy dining room large enough for all through the slider door to the side yard equipped with a hot tub to end the day with. The sun-drenched living room is outfitted with original wooden beams and provides ample space for everyone to comfortably come together for storytelling and board games. Up the accented staircase, you happen upon a sitting room, two bedrooms, and another full bathroom. Down the hallway, step into the primary suite, equipped with exposed brick and so much light, cathedral ceilings, a substantial walk-in closet, custom built-in vanity, sitting area, french doors to the large back deck, and full ensuite bathroom with a double sink. The top level provides two flexible spaces currently used as additional guest rooms. Wander down the basement level to find a full floor ready to be updated, kitchenette included, with direct side yard access.
Land One of the most special attributes of Willow Creek Manor is access to your own private wild forest. The mighty 92+ acres are fully trailed (with four hunting blinds) and play host to a creek, many pine trees, and multiple caves waiting to be explored. It’s a perfect setting for any outdoor enthusiast's pastime including hiking, birding, snowshoeing, quadding, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing. Closer to home, an expansive deck provides space for private sunbathing. Finishing off the evening in the hot tub after sitting around the firepit is a house favorite. The cleared backyard provides plenty of space to enjoy outdoor fun. A perfectly landscaped elevated area outfitted with a stunning stone wall is the perfect spot for a pergola, raised beds, a fairy garden, dining al fresco, or whatever your heart desires. As a continuation of the intention of the home to be a true gathering space, there is a detached garage as well as a circular driveway and an off-shoot providing enough parking for 5+ cars without anyone needing to move theirs for someone to exit. On the eastern side of the backyard, the current owner landscaped in preparation to install an inground pool with electricity already available. The main creek runs along the side of the home with a large wooden bridge connecting the land on the west and east sides of the creek. On the western side is a large open field that the owner used for additional parking for very large gatherings – it could easily be used in the same manner, for boat storage, or even likely be subdivided off as its own private parcel.
Use While Willow Creek Manor was mostly used as a gathering place among friends and family, it also provided to be a successful short-term rental when made available. To make the transfer seamless, the current owner is offering for the furniture to be negotiated as part of the sale or purchased separately with the exception of a few items that hold sentimental value. Additionally, the groundskeeper as well as his wife who provides cleaning services have offered to stay on for the next owner.
Surroundings Sullivan County is known for its bounty of quaint lakes, mighty reservoirs, and quick access to the Delaware River for white water rafting, canoeing, and fly fishing. Less than 10 minutes away from downtown Roscoe and less than 15 minutes from downtown Livingston Manor, you’re a quick drive to essentials, restaurants, antiquing, vintage shops, home goods, retail, and morning coffee with plenty of options to choose from. The Upper Sullivan corridor is best known as the Western gateway to the Catskill Mountains (NYS "forever wild" land) with an abundance of outdoor exploration accessible to all levels of hikers. Its arguably more substantial claim to fame is Upper Sullivan is host to some of the best fly fishing in the country – so much so that Roscoe’s nickname is Trout Town USA and Livingston Manor hosts a trout parade annually. You can stop in at the nearby Catskill Fly Fishing Museum to learn all about it! Fishing not your jam? No worries – these prized creeks and rivers are also some of the best spots for water sports such as kayaking and white water rafting, as well as finding hidden swimming holes and waterfalls. Grab some upstate favorite local brews at Catskill Brewery or Upward Brewing. (Pro tip: Take the hike up the mountain with your beer or sit in front of the fire pit equipped with a pond and mountain view!) On nights that the group is feeling too lazy to cook, there is a plethora of options: Fancy supper at The DeBruce, who were James Beard semi-finalists this year. Live in carb heaven at Northern Farmhouse Pasta who made their pasta with 100% local NYS-grown wheat flour. In the morning, head to the Neon Croissant for breakfast sandwiches or brunch at Spotted Cow Cafe & Grill. Grab a cocktail at The Junction, Arnold House, Do Good Spirits, or the Club Room at the DeBruce. In the winter months, take the 20-minute drive to Ski Hill & Chalet at Villa Roma Resort for skiing, snowboarding, and tubing – a bit further, Hunter and Belleyare Mountains offer additional slopes. Nearby downtowns include Callicoon (Catskill Provisions Distillery, Seminary Hill Orchard & Cidery, the very Wes Anderson-equse Callicoon Theater, Grizzly Bagels, Bà & Me, The Callicoon Pantry, The Western Inn & Restaurant, Spruce Home Goods), Bethel (Bethel Woods Center for the Arts - the original location of the Woodstock Festival!, Java Love Coffee, Catskill Distilling), Liberty (Walnut Mountain Park, another very Wes Anderson-equse spot called Town & Country Antiques, New Muson Diner, Sweet Basil Thai, Yiasou Cafe), Monticello (YO1 Health Resort, Worlds Resort Casino, Monticello Raceway, Kartrite Indoor Waterpark) – all of which are super accessible and provide a number of restaurants for just about any cuisine you're craving, nightlife, individual farmers markets, and classic Upstate NY diners. (One was even featured in a Seinfeld episode!)
Getting There Willow Creek Manor is conveniently located less than 10 minutes off of the highway (Route 17 which brings you to Western NY) and only 1 hour and 50 minutes to the George Washington Bridge. Tourism bus lines are available right in town also less than 10 minutes away.
