You may visualize farm houses or old stone homes when you think about real estate in Ulster County, NY, and you wouldn't be far off the mark. However among the more traditional mountain retreats for sale, there are also stunning contemporaries, decked out in modern luxury. Super modern homes for sale in and around the Hudson Valley are out there, but not always easy to find. We're seeing more and more modern new construction properties for sale in the Catskill mountain region of upstate NY.
Living upstate doesn't necessarily mean roughing it at the farm, though.
Check out some of these ultra modern homes that have recently sold across the county.
1489 Denning Road, Denning, NY 12725
Built in 2014, this contemporary glass home is super unique, allowing for unobstructed views throughout the home of the gorgeous Catskill landscape and Neversink River that surrounds it. Sold in February of 2017, this home had plenty of zen inspired features, making it a perfect place to find peace and solitude in the mountains, without a rustic, campy feel.
The Vly is a popular area of Stone Ridge, with many unique, contemporary and modern homes dotting the landscape. This dramatic wood-sided contemporary is a perfect example of what life on the Vly could be like. The dwell style home was built in 2016 and sold last in late 2017.
This architectural home sits atop natural rock outcroppings on the almost 10 acres of zen inspired landscapes, only 10 minutes outside of Woodstock, with Overlook Mountain looming in the distance. Sold in June of 2017, owners will get to experience their first spring bloom of the adjacent meadow view soon here.
79 Upper West O’hayo Mountain Road, Woodstock, NY 12498
Sold last in May 2017, this original 1976 home had a huge facelift and addition in 2016, creating this dark and striking contempo dwell style home. On one of the most desired roads in Woodstock, this home sits just outside of the village, with amazing mountainous views.
Architects of this modern masterpiece strived for a place where minimalism and nature meet, with lots of top of the line touches in this wooded oasis overlooking the Raybrook Creek, only minutes from the center of Woodstock. Only just leaving the market, this home just sold in February of this year.
Imagine the view that a bird would have, perched high atop the wooded canopy overlooking the Shawangunk Mountain Range… that is precisely the view that the Lantern House on 10 Trout Creek Road has! Floor to ceiling glass windows and doors give the feeling as if you’re living in the trees while inside this home, and the wraparound Western red cedar deck connects the indoor and outdoor spaces. Last sold in January 2017.
This unique Mid Century Modern sold last in September 2017. Again, located just outside the center of Woodstock, this location still feels completely private, allowing you to enjoy all of the high end features and bells and whistles of this sleek and modern Eames-style designed home.
Love the sleek style of contemporary design that defines much of New York City's bold aesthetic, but don't want to sacrifice peaceful, mountain living for a concrete jungle on the daily? You're in luck, because NYC's urban contempo design feel has migrated up to our Catskill Mountain and Hudson Valley area! Want to find one of these cool contemporaries to call your own? Our experienced Ulster County agents in-the-know can guide you to these modern masterpieces, whenever you're ready!
