MAGNIFICIENT MOUNTAIN GETAWAY. Only 90 minutes from the GW Bridge, on the very top of the Shawangunk mountain range in the historic artist community of Cragsmoor, sits this large contemporary home. It’s nestled on 4 + acres of beautiful woodlands and surrounded on two sides by the 5,000 acre Sams Point Preserve, a protected state park filled with fantastic hiking trails and known for its famous ice caves. Enjoy hiking out your front door. The peaceful views from the house are the same ones that inspired the mid-19th century artists from the Hudson Valley School. There are expansive windows throughout the home (all framed in rich wood) that contribute to a space that's enveloped by natural light with a deep connection to the outdoors. The property’s landscaping includes perennial gardens, flowering bushes, and ornamental trees. This is truly a rare find. Nicknamed "Top of the Mount" by its only owners, the home was thoughtfully designed and built for enjoyment and sensibility to accommodate both larger groups and smaller, more intimate get-togethers. It comfortably accommodated up to 16 people in a combination of its 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, and 3 sofa beds, so it's perfect for gatherings of family and friends or as an Airbnb investment. The top level of the house is based on an open floorplan design, which is perfect for parties or lazy weekend afternoons. The grand area of the kitchen, dining room and living room (including a wood-burning fireplace), seamlessly blend into one another with fresh light from its glass doors, which open up to a large deck. It is ideal for barbeques or drinking a glass of wine while the sun sets over the mountain. That same level has a master bedroom suite with a sun-filled bathroom and a large walk-in closet. There is also a den/office area with a generous room attached for storage, a laundry room, and a staging room off the kitchen. It is excellent for storing fine dishes, glassware, and extra kitchenware to make entertaining more convenient. The lower level offers two bedrooms, a bath, a den with a fireplace, and a huge storage room. It is an ideal space for younger ones, guests, or for a mother/daughter/in-law arrangement. The last 4 beautiful photos are of areas on Sams Point Preserve.
