Owner - George Merich



In 2001, George bought an abandoned farmhouse without electricity or running water on 370 acres in the foothills of the Catskill mountains in upstate New York.  His friends said he was crazy. He spent the next 10 years of weekends working on the house and revealing the beauty of the property.  In the summer of 2011, George gave up his architectural lighting practice of 18 years in NYC to realize his dream of living upstate full time and sharing his property with other like minded people who appreciate nature.  His friends said he was crazy.  George now enjoys living in the woods off-grid at Brookhollow with his 3 cats on the property that changed his life.
