Rarely does such an outstanding Woodstock estate come on the market, featuring its own tennis court, swimming pool, pond, three-stall horse barn and fantastic studio guest house with full bathroom and kitchenette! The 19+ acres set on lovely John Joy Road is everyone’s dream of an Upstate farm property. There are large open meadows as well as private wooded areas filled with ferns. Around the house are manicured gardens with perennials. The heated saline swimming pool surrounded by a bluestone patio is Shangri-La. This delightful pool has a natural sitting stone at one end, which doubles as a fountain. Tennis aficionados will attest this is a gorgeous tennis court--regulation size and fenced by a hedge of flowering hydrangeas. You will feel like a star under the blue canvas cabana while cooling down after a killer match. Once an 1800s working farm, the original part of the house was likely built back then and added onto over the years giving a more contemporary classic feel to the interior with some antique features throughout. The exterior is cedar-sided with excellent stone craftsmanship. The classic and spacious living room has a working stone fireplace adorned with a wooden mantel and a wall of shelving. It was the oldest part of the house and has hand hewn beams in the ceiling. The sunroom is the heart of the house with sliding doors to the stone patio overlooking the pool and landscaped terraces. The dining room can be approached from the living room, the kitchen or the sunroom making it a central destination. The gourmet kitchen with custom cabinets and plenty of storage throughout is roomy and practical. The side-door entry into the kitchen is ideal for bringing in groceries. The main bedroom suite is perfectly situated with views of the pond and sloping meadow surrounded by a deck accessed by two full glass doors. This bedroom suite is separated from the main part of the house by Dutch doors with antique hardware leading to a walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom. The bedroom suite includes a nice-sized sitting area and built-in closets. The deck encircling this area covers the back side of the house and includes a secluded sunken hot tub. There is a laundry room and guest bathroom easily accessed from the deck as well. Upstairs you will find two bedrooms, a full bathroom and a deep linen closet. In total, the main house has 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. There is also a private office and full bathroom in what could be called a finished basement with its own separate exterior entrance. The studio guest house, tucked away beyond the swimming pool and set near the rustic horse barn, is a modern departure from the classic house. Its high ceiling and wall of windows let in tons of light. It’s a perfect getaway from the main house and suitable for year-round living. With a kitchenette, full bathroom and the added ambiance of a gas-lit fireplace, you may want your guests to stay in the main house while you sleep out here! This part of the property has a more remote, middle-of-nowhere feel to it with big open sky and rolling hills. This premier Woodstock property is a must-see.
