Entering this Catskill Premier home will transport different time and place. This Central Chimney Post & Beam Colonial home was built circa 1795 retaining much of the original details and an ambiance of a bygone era. Originally built as The Crocker Tavern, the property has also been used as a farmhouse, meeting house, and as a home in its most recent incarnation. The building has local historical significance having been used as a meeting house during the Anti-Rent Wars and as a safe house for the Underground Railroad. The present owners have thoughtfully retained the integrity of the original structure one of the finest examples of early American architecture.

The house, its history and its original details will thrill the purist of early American architecture — a sophisticated theatricality will certainly appeal to artist, writers and those seeking something completely  unique. While defying most conventional modern building layouts, the house has 4 bedrooms, a kitchen with a massive stone fireplace, a combined living & dining room, a den, a parlor, one bathroom, and most notably a ballroom with a circular aperture. The ballroom or central meeting room is on the second level and has been used continuously over the past several centuries. Some of the rare details that are hard to find these days include 5 fireplaces, a front and rear stair case, sheathed & plaster walls, wood floors of varying types, and a simplicity that is both artful and functional.

The covered back porch gives way to lovely, private gardens surrounded by majestic evergreens, flowering trees & shrubs. Lush perennial gardens surround the house with many old fashion garden favorites. From the gardens there are beautiful protected mountain views. While the house is located on less than an acre, the rear and side of the property is bordered by conservation land ensuring no future development.

The house has been featured in a book on early American homes called "A Simpler Way of Life” and has been the subject of keen interest among preservation architects.  Located minutes to the destination Catskill Mountain village of Andes, close to skiing, an 18 hole golf course, boating, fishing, hiking, antique shops and on one of the most scenic roads in the Catskills.
