A magical creekside contemporary in the woods of Bearsville awaits new owners...
Sitting on just over 2 ¼ acres of private, wooded splendor, you’ll feel transported to a magical place as you drive down the thickly tree-lined drive of 3294-3296 Route 212. The babbling Sawkill creek that runs alongside the home only adds to the mystical feel of this property, and with nearly ¼ mile of creek frontage, there is plenty of room to enjoy the waters year round.
The 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom bluestone faced ranch has an overall contemporary and modern style to it, yet still fits seamlessly into its more rustic, country surroundings. In the main living area, cathedral ceilings, skylights and lots of floor to ceiling windows create a bright and airy feel about the open floor plan, while wood beamed ceilings and dark wooden details add to this contemporary's more rustic charm. A large woodstove in the living room will help keep things cozy on chilly winter nights. Another highlight of the home is the fully finished basement that opens up out onto a sunken patio. The basement is currently set up as an entertainment haven- complete with library/office area, pool table and bar- but it could also make for a great studio space, or additional bedroom if needed. If the 2,359 square feet of living space in the main home isn’t enough, there’s also an additional 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom cottage that sits alongside the creek and would make for a great rental investment opportunity to help offset costs of owning and maintaining the property. If being a full time landlord isn’t your cup of tea, the cottage could also make for a perfect AirBnB rental that could still provide extra income, without as much commitment.
Bearsville is a hamlet in the town of Woodstock, just west of the village of Woodstock. Private and rural, it’s only a few minutes drive from the hamlet’s center where the Bearsville Theatre and restaurants are located and only a few more minutes to additional shops, restaurants and businesses near the village of Woodstock. A bus stop is located just outside of the home as well, so public transportation is still a convenient travel option, even in this more rural location. Skiers and outdoor enthusiasts will love that the property is located only 45 minutes from a variety of local mountains including Belleayre, Hunter and Windham Mountains, and with this property hitting the market now, in early fall, means that new owners can still get moved in just in time for the first snowfall of the season!
