Completely Privately sited, up a long, inclining driveway, sits this one-of-a-kind, architects' personal country house, now available for the first time. Overlooking a stunning, swimmable, natural quarry pond and bluestone patios in the woods, this dramatic, yet somewhat rustic-inspired house makes you feel you are in a treehouse in the woods... with a lovely view of High Point Mountain in the distance. Minutes from Stone Ridge and the Ashokan Reservoir walkway (and soon rail trail) and under 25 minutes from Kingston or Woodstock, you have easy access to the best of all mid-Hudson/Catskill region living. The hidden from others compound features an oversized 3 bay custom garage/studio adjacent to the fenced tennis court to the rear of the house. (See site plan in photos) The house features an imaginative layout with bedrooms on the main level and a sleeping loft up, with the common areas on the second level, having two roomy elevated decks, and the best views possible. All the rooms thus take advantage of the beautiful mountain view or treetop atmosphere. The silo-like entry area houses a large, modern sweeping metal spiral stairway. The exterior of the house is dark stained vertical cedar board sided, giving it a timeless modern look and ease of maintenance. The roomy decks at either gable end of the house feature open wire railings and a curving stairway to the lower level bluestone patio, in one case. A short stone walkway, through the trees, takes you to the large bluestone patio overlooking the quarry pond and dramatic rock outcropping near it. This house exemplifies nature and design in a very special, rarely found, combination.
