Yesterday, October 10th 2009, we got permission to close from the bank. The closing date has been set for Friday, October 23rd. We were only waiting for the survey from the surveyors office which arrived Thursday morning. The survey confirmed that the property is 9.46 acres and that we have 410 ft of river frontage along the Wallkill River. The pond is 380 ft. long and at it's widest part 144 ft. wide. In total the pond is three quarters of an acre (over 3600 square yards). Plenty of room for boating and swimming. The island in the middle of the pond is nearly 3000 square feet.
Reclaimed Doorway Our house has been watched over the years by a couple, Susan Daley and Steve Gross who create amazing books of old houses and Hudson Valley (each name below is a link to Amazon). They knew the house and had been watching our progress. As we came close to finishing they reached out and asked if they could photograph the house for a book of cottages: Catskill Country Style Book , Old Houses , Farm House Revival , Homes With A Past , Gardens of Hudson Valley , Time Wearing Out Memory ...to name but a few. All of these books are beautifully produced. I can't wait to see our home in one of them later in 2015/16. I won't reveal all of the amazing photographs that have been taken of our house, you'll have to buy the book to see them all....but here is a little taster.
