This delightful and unique 4 BR/2.5BA French farmhouse was a skiing/cooking/gardening retreat in the 70s for the legendary chef Jacques Pepin. His presence remains, including his vintage Wolf commercial stove in the chef’s kitchen and fine art around the house by him. There are many other fun retro 70s touches throughout the house that have been held lovingly in time by its subsequent owners, many of them food lovers. Pepin did major work on the house, adding medieval looking rustic wood beams throughout the downstairs along with tiles from Howard Johnson where he held his first American job, among many other touches. Pepin’s lovely garden “Le Jardin” remains too, with its enchanting gazebo, stone walls, fruit trees, and much more. But all around you too is the wild nature of the Catskill Park. The house is spacious with a warm and homey open flow, an enormous living space, skylights, a stone wood burning fireplace, picture windows. There’s a generous parcel that kisses a lively stream below, and an ample yard and wooded areas, along with a nice sized deck. Foodies, the gourmet country kitchen must be seen to believed. There’s high speed cable internet available, so you can have a work/ski/cook/play lifestyle! The entrance to the slopes at Hunter is just a few miles away, and Windham is also just about 15 minutes away.There’s even a great hill on the property for wintertime sledding fun. This is a true charmer, don’t miss seeing it. $389,000.
