“Once upon a time" —like today—you can live in a Storybook home with a charming guest cottage on 4 acres, and less than a mile to Woodstock’s Village Green! Drive down a quaint, and artist named, Wiley Lane to reach this idyllic property overlooking lovely stone walls, mature landscaping, open and wooded land, and the neighboring pond. Step into a quieter time (c. 1936) originally built for artist Harvey Emrich and currently occupied by a renowned jazz singer. Always a spot meant to inspire...surrounded the Catskill Mountains, a studio building and shed, and overlooking stone walls and a pond. This peg & beam barn style construction gives every room a cozy charm yet tons of windows make for a bright, airy, open flow. There’s creativity and personality at every turn: note the all-inclusive wet-bar (tucked beside the open living/dining areas), beamed and vaulted ceilings, massive skylights, and warm wood floors throughout. The south facing home encourages streams of sunlight high and low. LR is anchored by a strong stone fireplace flanked by built-in wood shelving. A delightful modern kitchen with honed bluestone counters, stainless appliances also includes fanciful, folksy lit glass display cubbies on either side of the stove, and is large enough to support a huge eat-in dining area. Entertaining is a breeze as the kitchen incorporates a door opening to a large blue stone patio for easy relaxed barbecues, romantic dining al fresco, or late night star gazing. Here's a plus -- a first floor bedroom suite with full bath and reading nook. Please note there is a formal dining area on the main floor, next to the LR, that the owner is using as open space. There's plenty of room for holiday dinners or more traditional dining. There’s also a main floor laundry room just off the living area with an additional 1/2 bath. Upstairs you'll find a tremendous main bedroom suite with vaulted ceilings and enchanting built-in storage. The massive skylight and windows galore bathe the room in sun and sky. Or soak in the tub that looks across the yard, roam in the ample walk-in closet, or unwind in your sauna! There’s a smaller bedroom/office across from another bath in the hall (with clear story windows) and another immense vaulted bedroom with views out to the yard and distant studio building. The studio/cottage's boasts vaulted ceilings that make this an imaginative light-filled space. A full bath, and a wraparound deck brings about a singular place to hide out in the woods and write a book, or read one. Currently used as an art & music studio, it awaits your guests or your unique creative endeavors. This property is a pleasure to see and show. Enjoy!
