Unique Upstate New York Real Estate Opportunities: Lake Homes Available in Catskill Mountains, According to Coldwell Banker Timberland Properties


Margaretville, NY (PRWEB) March 30, 2014

When Pete and Jane Huffman were looking for a second-home getaway, having easy access to a lake was at the top of their “must have” list. “We love the idea of having water nearby,” said Huffman. “It allows us to connect to nature.”

This desire to connect to the natural environment is important to many buyers of real estate in New York’s Catskill Mountains, according to Eric Wedemeyer, principal broker of Coldwell Banker Timberland Properties, with four real estate offices in the Catskill Mountain region. “People, especially those from the New York City metropolitan area, are seeking a respite from the stresses of daily living,” said Wedemeyer. “They tell us that just the look of water is restorative and very relaxing. It is almost primal to their spirits,” he added.

While homes with ponds are not uncommon in the Catskill Mountains, according to Wedemeyer, finding a home with access to lake of other body of water is more difficult. He cited three homes that are currently available for purchase that are along a public lake or even include a private lake.

One, located near the Upstate New York community of Livingston Manor, was recently listed for $ 519,000. Built along Sand Pond, the five bedroom, three bath home is described by listing agent Stacy Keck-Colliton as “a perfect retreat after a long day playing on the lake.” The eight-plus acres are level and include woods and a “forever wild” clearing around the home. Built in 2005 with the idea of exposing all the natural light the location has to offer, the home features a spacious eat in kitchen, great room with steep cathedral ceilings, floor to ceiling wood burning fireplace, two 6’x8’ French doors meet a wall of custom windows that open to extensive front decking, two bedrooms downstairs with a full bath and three bedrooms upstairs with a full bath and a 24’x13’ den that overlooks the great room, according to Keck-Colliton.

Another home, located near Delhi, is a unique estate property featuring a 10 acre private lake on 141 pristine acres. Listed for $ 1.1M, the 4 bedroom, 3 bath home is described by listing agent Jeffrey Ashton as “an inviting home that takes in the private lake and mountain views from most every room. Beamed ceilings, wood floors and natural light give the home a warm & welcoming feeling.” This property features deciduous and evergreen forest with some protected land – assessible via a network of trails. “The setting is one of a kind, a psychological and physical retreat from the the demands of a hectic world,” said Ashton.

For some buyers, Wedemeyer added, having access to large lake for motorboat use is important. His agency recently listed a six-bedroom, 4.5-bath, log home on Otsego Lake near Cooperstown for $ 2.1M. According to listing agent Carol Spinelli, the home, located on two private acres, includes a 4300 square foot main lodge, attached 3-car carriage house with a second story 800 square foot one-bedroom, one-bath guest quarters, and a secluded private 200′ shoreline with 50′ dock.

“We love living with nature in the Catskill Mountains,” said Huffman. “The sound of the water is both comforting and exhilarating.”

Buying and selling land and homes in the New York City watershed area is unique and the 30-plus agents of Coldwell Banker Timberland Properties are trained to help buyers and sellers through this process.

Take Me Home, Country Roads To Become An Official West Virginia State Song


Charleston, WV (PRWEB) March 05, 2014

A special resolution to make the John Denver hit “Take Me Home, Country Roads” an official West Virginia state song is expected to pass during the state legislative session this Friday.

“Country Roads,” which begins with the lyrics “Almost Heaven, West Virginia…” was a huge million seller for singer John Denver and his co-writers Bill Danoff and Taffy Nivert.

A reception will be held Friday at 2pm at the lower rotunda of the State Capitol featuring Governor Earl Ray Tomblin and state legislators, musical performances from the Appalachian Children’s Chorus, students from Cabell Midland High School, and America’s Got Talent winner and West Virginia resident Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.

Princeton, WV resident Dreama Denver, wife of the late television icon Bob “Gilligan” Denver, is not related to John Denver (whose real last name was Deutschendorf). But, as head of the Mercer County WV-based Denver Foundation, she began pushing for “Take Me Home, Country Roads” to become the state’s official song in 2012. It all began with an on-air chat with her “Sunny Side Up” show listeners on Little Buddy Radio 93.1 FM, which is heard around the world at http://www.littlebuddyradio.com.    

Denver then enlisted the help of House of Delegates member Marty Gearhart in 2012 and then State Senator Bill Cole in 2013, who are working together to get the resolution reintroduced in the legislature before the session wraps up this week.

“We are identified favorably all over the world by the lyrics of ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads,’” Dreama told the Associated Press in a recent interview. “Their whole vision of West Virginia is tied up in the song all over the world. When the first four words are ‘Almost Heaven, West Virginia,’ that says it all, doesn’t it?”

That same Associated Press story also reached the family of John Denver. Denver sang and co-wrote the song with Bill Danoff and Taffy Nivert (the duo who also penned the 70’s hit “Afternoon Delight” for their group Starland Vocal Band). John Denver’s three children, Zak, Anna Kate, and Jesse Belle, released the following statement on behalf of their late father’s estate:

“We are really touched by this honor, and we wish that our dad could be here to share it. We are thrilled that such an important part of his musical legacy will live on in such a meaningful way. Thank you for bringing our father into the West Virginia family, we know how happy he would be.”

“Country Roads” co-writer Bill Danoff, contacted by West Virginia Music Hall of Fame head Michael Lipton, added: “It’s a wonderful honor; it was over 43 years ago when we put the song out. John would be really happy, as would my former wife Taffy. Personally, I’m thrilled, and really proud to be a part of what I like to think of as the West Virginia Pride movement. I’ve had these incredible stories of people from all over the world connecting to the state because of the song. It’s really nice for it to be a part of the positive image of West Virginia. “

“Country Roads” has been heard and performed around the globe from Irish pubs to the Czech Republic, and even at the Great Wall of China. When now U.S. Senator Joe Manchin visited Thailand as West Virginia’s Governor, Thailand’s prime minister started singing, “Almost Heaven, West Virginia” after being introduced to Manchin.

The song has been recorded in French, Finnish, Czech, Slovene, Japanese, and German, and along with Denver’s hit version, “Country Roads” has also been recorded by Loretta Lynn, Olivia Newton John, Ray Charles, Lynn Anderson, Eddy Arnold, Skeeter Davis, Emmylou Harris and others.

“Country Roads” has played at every West Virginia University football game since 1972. It was also played at the funeral of the late U.S. Senator Robert C. Byrd, D-W.Va. Country star and West Virginia native Kathy Mattea and Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. performed it with the Wheeling Symphony during West Virginia’s sesquicentennial celebration last year.

Then, when Murphy and his manager Burke Allen were in Shanghai, China this past December for a charity performance, they got a taste of home in an unexpected way.

“When one of our Chinese drivers who didn’t speak any English learned we were from West Virginia, he started singing ‘Country Roads’ to us! It was wild; we were about as far away from home as we could get, and this guy halfway around the world knew that song and identified it with West Virginia,” said Murphy, a close friend of Dreama Denver who says that he is honored to perform the National Anthem at the “Country Roads” reception.

Dreama notes that Friday’s official resolution would not eliminate any current state songs; it would instead add “Take Me Home, Country Roads” to the list of official state songs. Says Denver, “If there is one thing that all lawmakers in Charleston should be able to agree on, Democrats and Republicans, it should be ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads.’”

MTH Management, a family-owned residential property management organization based in Michigan, was seeking to streamline their property management process by investing in an efficient and user-friendly real estate management solution.
