Useful additions include a first-floor laundry room and home office as well as a welcoming screened-in porch perfect for entertaining while viewing the gorgeous backyard.

The newly-restored 2-stall barn offers space for storing quads or dirt bikes to be used on the beautiful property’s trails, or could be renovated into a future art studio or private getaway zone. The property is zoned for horses and offers a perfect home for them, both in terms of the lovely land and the barn.

An oversized, detached 2-car garage means plenty of parking and work/storage space, and the large basement offers additional storage space.

This home lies within easy driving distance from Sparta's town center, meaning dining and entertainment options abound, and you'll be just a few minutes from the route 15 commuting corridor. New York City is only a little over an hour away by car. NYC Bus is available from Sparta. Newark Airport and the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania average about an hour's drive as well. And don't forget the nearest ski slopes and water parks are only 20-30 minutes away in Vernon!

Like hiking? Just 15 minutes away, the 1400-acre Sparta Mountain Wildlife Management area offers numerous trails for all levels of hiking, as well as Ryker Lake for kayaking, fishing and birding.
