“The Chapin Estate offers a retreat like no other” opens of a lovely showcase on The Chapin Estate in New York’s Gotham Magazine. Read more of their featurette here:
“Living and working in New York City comes with certain unavoidable elements: crowds, smog, noise, traffic. And although Gotham tempers those stresses with an intrinsic excitement, the necessity of occasional respite remains. The city’s eastern extension may be the choice of salt-water lovers, but what about those who prefer lakes and mountains to beaches and bays? Enter The Chapin Estate, high in the Catskill Mountains of Sullivan County, New York. A wilderness utopia of sorts, this sprawling gated community—90 miles from Manhattan (just far enough to feel like it’s away)—is “a place to renew your spirit and lower your blood pressure after the weekly grind in the city,” says managing partner Steve Dubrovsky.
Buyers can customize the lodge of their dreams, as Chapin prides itself on its meticulous attention to detail. The end results speak for themselves. As for the land available for purchase, it’s all within a safe, secluded area, stretching some 2,500 acres and including two freshwater reservoirs.
The benefits of owning within this community don’t stop at a first-rate residence. The Chapin Estate also offers a membership to The Chapin Estate Lake Club, which boasts a pool, a fitness center and a pavilion for activities such as cocktail parties, barbecues and Sunday brunch. Explore the spectacular surroundings by complimentary kayak, canoe or mountain bike, or venture out on marked hiking trails along the trout fishing stream.
If you’re looking for a little excitement beyond the property, the neighboring towns certainly deliver. The Bethel Woods Center for the Arts features high-profile cultural performances (this month Dave Matthews Band lays it down), and the Monticello Motor Club shoots a jolt of adrenaline with its luxury racetrack.
The bottom line? With its commitment to quality craftsmanship, personal attention, respect for its natural environment and proximity to world-class entertainment, The Chapin Estate is nearly perfect—and mountain living never looked so good.”
