This 15-acre paradise is found at the end of a private road. It is an oasis, both radiating and reflecting the clear Catskill mountain light with magnificent views of Overlook Mountain from all ends of the property. Acres of open meadowland are framed by forests and hiking trails. There is a stream bordering the meadow and a swimming pond for those who enjoy natural waters. Some may quietly meditate beside the pond or watch fish and wildlife from the immersive perspective of a small canoe. Blue herons, hawks, owls, dragonflies, cardinals, butterflies and all forms of gentle local wildlife rest and drink amidst the cattails and wild blackberries bushes. At the center of this diverse natural setting sits the home. The majestic spaces within are a nod to its original form: an antique barn with hickory beams and high ceilings. In the 1970s it was converted into a living space by New York City theater designers. The current owners have essentially rebuilt everything, both inside and out. New, new, new. Just move in and enjoy. The property is an ideal place for so many- It is a retreat for peaceful and romantic weekends. It is a home to raise children with a true connection to nature. It is a destination to gather with friends and family during all seasons. It is a home for artists and professionals to live and work in a sublime location. Imagine the mountain alive with the reds and yellows of Fall! Imagine your garden bursting with life! Here one enjoys a rare balance between total privacy and total proximity to all necessary conveniences. Woodstock is only 5 minutes away. Both Saugerties and Kingston are 10 minutes away. You cannot find a property with more privacy and natural splendor this close to town. Most impressive about this home is the height of the great room. The two-story space is framed by massive new windows on both sides of the home. Extensive views of the natural setting can be enjoyed from every vantage point. The living room is centered by a large, visually graceful brick fireplace. Its hearth accommodates a warm and wide fire, creating a lovely focal point on snowy winter nights for all to enjoy. An additional fireplace is located in the master bedroom. The kitchen, with local bluestone floors, is private yet also flows into both the great room and a lovely screen porch for seasonal pleasures. The gas stove is integrated into the kitchen island and its central location adds an open feeling to the kitchen and dining areas. In addition, intrepid cooks will enjoy the built-in interior wood burning grill. Just steps beyond the screen porch sits a new hot tub. Enjoy awesome stargazing in bubbling waters and intimate daytime views of the mountain crest, so close beyond the tree line. The owners have also created a simple yet luxurious studio and sleeping cabin. It sits quietly away from the house with its own heat/a/c unit and a 10x10 screened porch. This is in addition to the 4 bedrooms you will find in the main house. A garage and a second story studio space await the next owner’s imaginings, should more living and working space be desired. The owners travel and have found that sharing their home with Airbnb guests is a wonderful solution. Houses love to be loved and all who visit this one do! Guests rave and are plentiful. This makes weekend showings tricky at times. Visit on weekdays to explore & fully experience this special Hudson Valley home.
