Description: One of the very few larger private ponds within the Catskill Mountain region is the Butternut Pond with 8.5+acres, and it has a year around protected trout stream through the property. This listing includes about 2.4+- acres of water surface. The Butternut Pond (some call it a lake) is the marvelous gem of this property nestled at the base of Ticeteneyck Mountain. The pond has matured to become a quiet bass fishing secret and attracts many species of birds and abundant wildlife. See the aerial video at this link: There is a perimeter trail passing by natural artesian springs that feed the pond. There are abundant fish and wildlife on the property with room for canoeing, swimming, hiking or just relaxing on your private estate in this pleasant recreation area. This land has secluded access with more than half the boundary being either State Forest or a large private estate. The Butternut Pond is positioned against the 500+ acres of Forever Wild parkland above on Ticeteneyck Mountain assuring your access to a large protected wilderness and can be used for recreation as if they were your own preserve. The western 2.4 acre portion of the 8.5 acre pond is included with this offering with the balance held in a family estate. The central portion of the larger pond will be available for use with a Recreation Agreement. Several natural terraces provide a topography for privacy as well as offering views of the Lake Ashokan Reservoir below and the south face of Ticeteneyck Mountain above the Butternut Pond. Easy access to year around recreation with just 20 minutes to music, theater, fine dining, and creative shopping in Woodstock, Phoenicia, Stone Ridge, Kingston, or Saugerties. Recreation opportunities abound for biking, hiking and camping, kayak and canoeing and tubing, and world class trout fishing. We are just a half hour to Belleayre or 45 minutes to Hunter Ski Centers.
