This large former schoolhouse has been converted into a private country manor house residence. Also included in the rental is access to a "fully equipped " music rehearsal room. LOCATION: Set in the upper Delaware Region of the Catskills, this historic and, rustic Schoolhouse is the perfect place for a photoshoot or film set. The property is located in a picturesque hamlet and is set on one acre of land. There are fences on all three sides of the property and it is secluded from the village by a border of trees on all sides. There is a large lawn area and two freshwater rushing streams bordering the property. We are only half a mile from the Upper Delaware river (which contains some of the highest water quality in the Eastern United States) where swimming, boating, rafting and fishing access is available. The property is also just one mile from Hancock where all grocery stores, shops, and services are available. DESCRIPTION OF HOUSE: Furnished in an upcycled, shabby chic style, the house is reminiscent of a decadent artist's loft in downtown Manhattan in the 1980's. Downtown artist vibes in the interior, yet we are surrounded by the splendid flora and fauna of the Upper Delaware Region on the exterior. We have a fire pit and gas or charcoal barbecue on the patio which is set up to accommodate al fresco summer dinners. And two small ponds where frogs and tadpoles reside. There is also a trampoline and a grassy lawn for badminton games. In the summer we keep a garden and on occasion offer some organic produce. The rental consists of two floors with two suite like rooms on each floor, totalling 4 large lofts. There is a large bathroom on each floor and foyers/lobbies totaling about 5000 sq ft. Each loft is about 800 sq ft and has a unique style and function. All rooms have double function and can be made private for separate activities by closing the door. On the top floor, the northern room (Red room), encompasses a fully equipped kitchen, dining table, gathering area, suspended loft bed, and pull out sofa bed. The kitchen has been updated with stainless steel surfaces and a new gas cook stove. You will find all basic cooking necessities (oils, condiments, spices, and appliances) as well as cleaning supplies. The south top room (Blue room) is furnished with lavish velvet textiles and doubles as a media room with a record collection and flat screen tv (with dvd and vhs plus HDMI inputs). This room has two single beds, one queen sized bed, one pull out sofa bed and one sofa. Also, on the top floor is the "kids" room with 2 singles. In the top floor lobby we have a rich library with books on a wide range of topics of general and special interest including cooking, crafts, country living, music, dance, and art. (We also have a collection of games like Scrabble, chess, and backgammon) Downstairs, on the lower floor we have the “pool room”, which has a pool table and two queen beds and the music room which has one queen sized bed. The south lower room {music studio} is available for band rehearsal and jamming with a full drum kit and guitar amps keyboards and PA. **** **** For serious music and recording booking, I provide full backline and set up of up to 16 channels through the vintage MCI console*** Heating: We heat sustainably almost exclusively with WOOD and all rooms have stoves and heat exchangers, (instruction and assistance is available for those not familiar with wood stoves).
