The magnificence and privacy of Laurel Ridge are unparalleled, especially in a property so close to famous Woodstock, NY. Perched at the edge of a cliff with panoramic views of the Ashokan Reservoir from every important room, the 8000+ square foot stone and stucco home was conceptualized to maximize its revered location. If ever a home was designed for lavish entertaining, this is it; the grand living room, with double-height ceilings and a wall of windows to the view, opens through multiple doors to a sprawling deck from which you can look down at the birds and out to the water. With a fireplace, wet bar, loads of custom built-ins and moldings and enough space to host a ball, well, if only the walls could talk. The party-size gourmet kitchen is the dream of anyone who enjoys cooking while hanging out, and offers loads of custom cabinetry, breakfast bar, pantry, all the right appliances and a corner banquette for more casual meals. The formal dining room, with another fireplace, can seat a large crowd and, like every room that faces the view, will have you thinking you’re on a cruise ship. At the far end of the wide corridor that traverses the first floor of the home, past the richly paneled office, media room and library, there’s a guest suite that could easily serve as a master for those challenged by stairs, or simply an incredibly comfortable space in which to accommodate overnight visitors. Up on the second floor, the master wing is an oasis unto itself. The soaring ceilings and fireplace in the oversize bedroom speak to our need for relaxation and comfort, and the marble-clad bathroom, with yet another fireplace, exudes luxury and beauty. All of the other bedrooms are generously proportioned as well, and additional rooms on the second floor offer plenty of space for other endeavors – currently there’s a home gym/billiard room, an office, and a storage room. As one might expect, the house is wired for sound and security, and systems and infrastructure are all appropriate for a home of this stature. The care and detail with which this property was envisioned continues out of doors. There’s a cascading fountain in the center of the brick-paved motor court, and the pool complex, with freeform outdoor pool, gas fire pit and pool house with endless pool, takes full advantage of the cliffside site. Apart from the attached three-car garage, there’s an additional two-car garage and covered carport, and there’s a tennis court on the property too. The landscape design was carefully conceived to appropriately adorn the property without stealing the show from the rare and spectacular reservoir view. With end-of-road privacy, an awe-inspiring site, a home of rare proportion and a coveted location, Laurel Ridge is a property that will satisfy even the most discerning of buyers.
