Kerhonkson Waterfall House, $649,900

Can you imagine snuggling into your bed at night after a long day at the office, being lulled to sleep by the sound of a waterfall in your backyard?  I had to get five aquariums AND download a waterfall sounds app for my iPod just to get that effect in my apartment.  Having a swimming hole in your back yard in which to languish on sultry summer days would be pretty great also.

Oh, and we like the house, too.  It’s pretty, but the first thing I would do if I bought this home would be to pull up the carpets.  I always assume that under every hideous carpet lies a beautiful hardwood floor.  I have no basis for this assumption, except that one time, I lived in a house that had nice hardwood floors hidden by barf-green shag carpeting.  Long story short:  It doesn’t hurt to pull up the corner of the carpet, just to see what’s under there.

The house is set back from Boice Mill Road, secluded, and surrounded by farm land all around.  And if this was our yard, we’re not sure we’d ever be able to leave the property ever again.  Looks like the perfect place to go for a bit of an afternoon ramble, don’t you think?
