While we’ll probably never know for certain, it’s a safe bet that long ago this gracious Federal style home was named the “Wick”, short for “Baliwick,” a olde English word that can be defined as a “sphere of activity”. Here’s your opportunity to make it your very own “sphere of activity”.

In the winter, you’ll enjoy gorgeous views of Mohawk Mountain by night, skiing the uncrowded slopes by day. In your backyard, you’ll find your own private snowshoeing or x-country skiing. For sure, your friends won’t miss a chance to visit your winter wonderland.

Come spring, you’ll find yourself picking strawberries from your own organic patch and planting vegetables for your summer salads in your large garden with its cobblestone paths leading from one flourishing bed to another. When you’re ready to take a break, head to Mohawk Pond with your kayak! It’s just down the road.

Whatever the season, the “Wick” surely is a place to enjoy the outdoors. Set on almost 7 acres, this antique gem boasts a warm and welcoming Living Room with fireplace, and a fully enclosed front porch, there is a sunny Breakfast Area in the Kitchen, and a Family Room that opens via French doors onto an outdoor Dining Area. There is a Full Bath downstairs, plus a room for a Home Office (or two). Upstairs, you’ll find your Master Bedroom, plus another Bedroom and another Full Bath. You will surely notice the antique doorknobs and other such charming period details throughout the house. The closet space is also impressive.

Additionally, there is a small Barn for storage on the property, a brick-paved patio and shed that is currently being used to house ducks. The “Wick’s” roof was recently replaced and its furnace is just over a year old.

Wander over to the Wick and see if you don’t agree that it’s the perfect spot to relax, unplug and enjoy an idyllic, active country life. Without a doubt, it’s the stress buster you’ve been searching for. 2 Hour commute to New York, Wassaic train station, Close proximity to the Appalachian Trail and Housatonic River.
