    Remarks
    If a unique, one-of- a-kind, distinctive home intrigues and interests you, you shouldn’t miss 20
    Harvest Road, a spectacular reinvention of an Ontario & Western 19th Century Railroad Depot.
    Discovered 30 years ago, a derelict and defaced shell, it was fallen in love with and with passion,
    enormous creativity, artistry and vision transformed into a stunning, 5 bedroom home. Built in 1898
    and abandoned in 1957, the concrete structure remained intact and today its insulated walls ceilings
    and floors create a quiet, peaceful environment, the perfect framework for the remarkable quality &
    craftsmanship of this unique home. 

    The Mission Style Architecture and Painted Concrete Walls is accentuated by the Ludowici Spanish
    clay roof tile with its pattern of distinctive ripples, timeless and ageless, adding beauty and
    character to the home. But it’s also highly practical carrying a 75-year warranty. So it's not only
    beautiful but highly functional. Many of the other exterior features were created or enhanced using
    materials found on site, like the railroad ties and spikes that are combined with brick on the
    walkway and steps. The entire home, inside and out, has been meticulously and painstakingly
    recreated and imagined with acute attention to detail from the O&W logo incorporated in the hand-welded custom wrought iron front door to the antique light fixtures, quarter-sawn White Oak floors and custom-made doors.

    The home is filled with surprises and gorgeous accents. Cabinetry is white oak and cherry wood;
    counters are limestone, black slate, ice-stone and cherry. Floors are mosaic stone, Spanish
    embossed terracotta tiles and oak. There’s stained glass and custom iron-work, paneled
    wainscoting, oversized stained oak moldings, and William Morris block print design hand-applied
    wallpapers. There’s a Turkish bird bath for a sink, and an antique dairy farm sign for a vanity, a
    circular tray ceiling and the original double-sided fireplace with a soapstone hearthstone in the
    former waiting room, now an amazing living room. The former ticket room is an office and the
    station masters quarters are re-designed as the bedroom wing.

    A new section was added to the house to accommodate a master bedroom suite, sublimely elegant
    and filled with natural light. With no expense spared for top-of- the-line fixtures and accessories, it’s
    a very special space, intimate and private. His and hers walk-in closets with custom built-ins are
    hidden behind artwork and the cathedral ceiling, huge wood and glass sliders accentuate the light
    and space. A beautifully crafted mahogany balcony overlooks the secluded, peaceful back yard.
    Drift off into sleep soothe by the lullaby of the softly rippling stream.

    There are five bedrooms, each distinctively decorated and unique. Custom built cabinetry and hand-
    painted wallpaper, as well as antique light fixtures, are featured in each one. One of them is hidden -
    a secret room! Stone tile walls, antique church windows and custom vanities highlight the family
    bathroom.

    Outside, the original archways are seen on both the front and back of the building, and from the
    interior main waiting room. From the back of the house, they lead to a brick patio in a serene sunny
    spot. The landscaping was custom designed with indigenous plantings, a pretty mountain stream,
    and a shed which echoes the mission style architecture of the house. An antique school-house bell
    and an antique prison door, reinvented as a bridge over the stream, add to the whimsy and charm of
    the grounds.

    One of the O&W railroads four tunnels is on the property. It was started in 1868 and completed in
    1871, blasted through the mountain to open up Sullivan County to visitors from New York City, the
    gateway to the resorts that flourished there 100 years ago.

    So, from an abandoned, vandalized shell, a 15-year journey has ended with this amazing
    accomplishment. A home that is a showcase of unsurpassed artistry, craftsmanship and quality. No-
    one else in the world owns a home like this! That’s a pretty compelling reason to come see it.
    Please see the Virtual Tour for room-by- room descriptions and call us to arrange a private showing. Income potential in vacation/weekend rentals of up to $650 per night!!!
