Honeysuckle Rose is an irresistible turn off the century, Catskill summer cottage. In those days, it meant a mansion in the mountains. Built by Dorothy Shaver, the first woman to head a multi-million dollar US Company, the merchandising behemoth, Lord and Taylor. A short walk to the Deer Mountain Inn, the Onteora Club, set back from the road, this historic beauty has show-stopper potential. Nestled on six acres and backed by thousands of acres of protected state land, there is a stone walled garden with fountains and a covered gazebo. Restore a natural stone pool, hundred year old specimen plants and an old cistern designed for maintaining the gardens. Fresh air, crisp, pure water, potential long mountain views; an outdoor paradise. Inside, a stately stone and wood home that you can enjoy now while envisioning its full grandeur after restoration. Multiple fireplaces, porches, large bedrooms. Price reflects further work needed. Nearby properties, fully restored, support the value.
