At the end of a long, forested drive on a private road just outside of town, you approach this home with no idea that you are about to be met with one of the most spectacular views in the area. So many of the most beloved parts of the Shawangunk Ridge - Skytop Tower and Bonticou Crag included - are visible, as well as so much sky and other natural beauty, that it is literally breathtaking. And when you realize that this is also the view from the inground pool and the MASSIVE wrap-around deck and, well, it's hard not to fall in love! The home itself features those same views from many of the windows, including the luxurious bathtub in the master suite or from its massive walk-in closet (that could technically become a bedroom again, but...). The current owners have made a number of stylish and unique upgrades to the home, and the full-height basement (with those same mountain views!) will be finished by closing. There are very few homes that boast this kind of privacy and incredible natural beauty that still have such easy access to NYC (jump on the Thruway, take the bus, get MetroNorth at Poughkeepsie...) and access to one of the larger small towns in the area. New Paltz's restaurants, shops, college town feeling, and, of course, the hiking, climbing, cycling, and exploring that can be done in those mountains of "yours" make it a perenially desirable location to live full-time or to enjoy as a vacation destination. PS The nearly 9 acre lot also boasts a large pond closer to the beginning of the driveway - and this home has naming rights to the private road, so you can pick your actual address!
