454 O'Neil Rd.

Cherry Valley



If you're looking for a true country retreat, you will not find anything else of this quality available at this price. The curving driveway opens to reveal a beautifully kept log home and gazebo overlooking a private pond and perennial gardens in a park-like setting. It is surrounded by sixty acres of woodland abutting 1600 acres of NYS land. Just a couple of miles above the charming village of Cherry Valley, just 20 minutes from Cooperstown, this immaculate home features two guest rooms with bath and shower/laundry room on the main floor, a living room with vaulted ceiling and large wood stove, dining room overlooking the deck to the pond, and an efficient kitchen with Heartland gas stove, all comfortably part of the action when you're entertaining. Upstairs is the private master suite, with a balcony off the bedroom, an electric fireplace, and a master bath with soaking tub and separate shower. The lowest floor has an additional working kitchen with butcher block countertops as well as an oversized two car garage.

Outside, there's a charmingly finished guest bungalow/bedroom, two more two-car garages, plus a 2019 outbuilding big enough to store tractors, multiple cars, and even a 35' boat. The gazebo in front of the house has electric, making it the perfect spot for enjoying outdoor meals, and there is a whole-house generator to ensure you are comfortable no matter what the weather. The pond is stocked with bass, trout, koi and catfish. The sixty acres includes several trails, three picnic spots, and two abandoned camp buildings that could be great spots for overnight sleepovers once renovated. The seller has put a great deal of money and love into this property, and it shows, from the raised bed vegetable garden to the gleaming, recently refinished logs on the home's exterior. This is a rare opportunity, and it is priced to sell.
