If there is, it’s a dream.

A fairytale cottage in upstate New York has sold for $1.97 million.

Our cottage on 171 sprawling acres is located in the idyllic Catskill Mountains. There is also a farmhouse, main studio building, and barn throughout the compound.

Located in Jefferson, this estate is used agricultural land and is surrounded by hardwood forests, open meadows, streams and ponds.

“The Catskill Mountains of New York State have been considered enchanting since the early days of our Republic. It has long been a haven for artists and writers who have done so,” the list says.

Nailed down as a Catskill retreat, this cottage is known on the grounds as the ‘Statement Building’.

The cottage is one of four structures on 171 acres.

The drawing room has a fireplace with a Georgian mantelpiece. The bedroom has a covered porch accessed through French doors with views of the countryside.

There’s also what’s described as a ‘secret room’ behind the bookshelves, an entryway with marble tiled floors, and a compact kitchen with marble countertops.

Apart from that, the property entrance has a former farmhouse with a dairy. The house has since been updated with a modern kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Features hardwood floors, crown molding, wood burning fireplace and 2 car garage.

A short distance from the farmhouse is a studio building near a private meadow overlooking a pond.

A Norman-style home, the 3,000-square-foot home features high ceilings, maroon floors, and molding throughout.

“Several crystal chandeliers reflect light from large windows overlooking the countryside,” adds to the listing.

The studio building also has a powder room and basement.

“The building suggests a variety of uses, including conversion from art and dance studios to spacious single-family homes.”

Robert J. Schneider of Coldwell Banker Timberland Properties maintains the list.
