Looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the daily grind? Craving a mountain retreat to enjoy time with family and friends, both indoors and out, where all you have to do is turn the key and start the party? 570 Manorville Road in Saugerties, NY may be just the vacation location or full time wooded retreat that you have been looking for this summer!
This 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 2,162 square foot contemporary ranch sits at the base of the Catskill Mountain range, at one of the northernmost points of Ulster County. Located in West Saugerties, a quiet, lightly traveled and desirable pocket of Saugerties, the home sits upon a wooded 1.3 acre lot, so there is plenty of privacy to take in the scenery. Despite the location, this isn’t your typically thought of ‘cabin in the woods’ however; this home is filled with unique characteristics and details that have more of a modern European twist, still blending seamlessly with its natural surroundings.The main highlight and standout feature of the home is the deep and spacious sunken in living room with high, wood beamed ceilings. The rest of the common living space, including the dining room, encircles the sunken living room, creating an open floor plan that many buyers covet. Simple, minimalist details give this home its contemporary feel, and french doors and floor to ceiling windows bring in lots of light to the already airy space. The kitchen is also accented with more modern, striking details, again solidifying the contemporary style of this country retreat. Three spacious bedrooms and two full bathrooms round out the rest of this character-filled home.
At Home in the Outdoors
The wooded haven surrounding this home is a blank canvas to create the outdoor retreat you’ve been picturing being at all summer. Currently, the low maintenance backyard is the perfect spot to sit outside around a campfire or enjoy the seasonal views out towards the Berkshire Mountains from the wraparound back deck. There’s lots of space to expand your outdoor oasis and an existing horse shed provides for even more storage space or could be converted into a studio or workshop. Located only 20 minutes from the popular ski destination of Hunter Mountain, this location makes a great homebase, bordering the Kaaterskill Wild Forest, to experience all the local hiking, biking, swimming, skiing and other outdoor entertainment that this area has to offer.
Vacation Home and Investment Property Potential
If you desire privacy, but also don’t want to be far from the reaches of human interaction, then 570 Manorville Road has you covered. Only roughly 25 minutes from the Hudson train station and a mere 2 hours north of Manhattan, this home puts you far enough away from the daily grind that you have your escape, yet gets you back to reality quickly when needed. Just a short, 15 minute drive will put you in the middle of the villages of Saugerties and Woodstock, where there’s plenty of dining, shopping and entertainment to enjoy.
The convenient location of 570 Manorville Road makes this a great full-time home, but with all the great local outdoor activities, historical neighboring towns and more, it is also primed to be a wonderful vacation home for out-of-town visitors. Already established as an AirBnB rental, current owners have set the footing to turn this home into a great investment property as well- rent it out when you can’t stay there yourself to cover the taxes and utility bills!
Whether you’re looking for a first home, a vacation home, or an investment property, this mountainside hideaway could be yours!
