This Huge Upstate Estate Last Sold In 1839. Want To See It Today?
In 1839, Martin Van Buren was President, the US only had 26 states, and the property at Bodoit Road in Fishs Eddy, New York sold for the last time. Now, after staying in one family for 183 years, it's back on the market.
Nestled in the Catskills on the Delaware river, whoever owns the property has availability to 800 acres. 193 of which would be yours, the rest you have private access to. It's been used as a retreat and vacation rental for the last few years under the name Estates by Brophy. This much land doesn't come cheap - it's selling for $14.8 million by Four Seasons Sotheby's International Realty agent Elizabeth Peters..
There's a main house and entertainment lodge built in 2000 with 30,000 square feet and 29 bedrooms between the two. It'll sleep you and your 71 closest friends and consorts. When it comes to outside relaxation, you'll have every comfort: pool, hot tub, stone fire pit - everything you'd want for $14.8 mil.
Besides the two main buildings, the land includes a full horse stable and facility. The land had previously been used as a training farm for horses, including 1991 Kentucky Derby winner Strike the Gold.
But the real stunner that makes this property a gem is the unspoiled nature that can only come with a nearly two century old property. The buyer will get two waterfalls, private blue stone quarry, natural gas rights, hardwood forests, and half a mile of river frontage on the Delaware with exclusive rights.
