Walden in miniature. A retreat from the world…Little Pond, a 16-acre glacial, spring-fed “kettle” pond, is an environmental asset within the NYC watershed. The 175-acre wooded property is 52 miles north of NYC. It was the Yonkers YMCA Boy’s Camp, 1939-1952. A mile-long private gravel road at the base of Brown’s Mountain follows a stone wall. The southern property line leading to a quiet valley where the pond and the cluster of buildings are situated. Twelve structures remain from 1939; four are year-round rental cottages. The center entrance saltbox two-story house is beautifully sited overlooking the pond. It has been occupied by the current owners for 51 years. The only updating is an automatic generator, 2009. The property shares a common border with South Hollow, a 355-acre expansion of the Cranberry Mountain Wildlife Management area. The northeast edge of Little Pond is an unusual floating bog. The property is also adjacent to a beautiful horse farm that offers boarding and dressage. Perfect location for paradise.
