A waterfront resort in the Catskills has hit the market for the first time in nearly 200 years.

Estates by Brophy, which owns two vacation rentals in the Delaware County hamlet of Fishs Eddy, is asking for $14.8 million, the Times Union reported. The property is operated as a site for events such as weddings and bar mitzvahs.

Passed down by the same family since 1839, it can be used for reception or residential purposes. It does not come with stipulations.

The estate homes, built in 2000, have 29 bedrooms and 22 bathrooms and span 30,000 square feet. The main house, which is rented as DeerRidge, has 17 bedrooms. The other house, named RiverView, has 12 bedrooms, including a 1,000 square foot master bedroom.

The mostly undeveloped land was used as a family retreat for hunting and vacationing. When a family member owned and bred horses, this was where 1991 Kentucky Derby winner Strike the Gold rested between races. The property also has a swimming pool and a predesigned wedding area with a wedding arch and natural wooden benches.

A half mile of frontage along the Delaware River makes the property rare as many other owners nearby have sold their rights. It has spring-fed wells and access to a river suitable for fly fishing.

The seller also has access to an additional 600 acres of adjacent land that the buyer could also use.

Fishs Eddy, also the name of the New York cookware store, is known for having flexible zoning laws, so the buyer could potentially build additional homes on the property. There are no building restrictions on the land, but New York State watershed restrictions do impact.
