COLONIAL STYLE WITH CATSKILL VIEWS
Up a long driveway and high on a knoll, surrounded by conserved farmland, this commanding home has the best of all worlds. Designed by Conner Historic from Vermont and built in 2007, it has modern conveniences, yet traditional design, with the peaceful private site chosen for beautiful views of the countryside, Catskill Mountains, and sunsets. … The five-bedroom house has newly redone beautiful wideboard floors, a large light-filled kitchen with a commercial grade six-burner stove, new refrigerator and dishwasher. A large butcher block island creates ample space for cooking and prep. The open space flows from kitchen into dining and living areas — perfect for entertaining. The area warmed by the woodstove in winter has windows and French doors opening to views of peaceful farmland and Catskill Mountains year-round. A separate dining room which connects to a full bath could easily double as a first-floor bedroom, library or work space. The five bedrooms upstairs include a primary bedroom with en suite bath, and an additional full bath. A large finished and heated room, over the garage, with views of the Catskills, is an ideal work, studio, or exercise space. With a separate entrance and rough-plumbed for a bathroom, it would also be great for additional living space for friends or extended family. A two-car attached garage opens to a tiled floor mudroom for shoes, coats, and boots. The roof is new and the unfinished dry basement with a half bath has a top-of-the-line heating system that provides radiant heated floors throughout. Outside, a two-stall barn with water and electricity is ready for animals or a creative studio. An additional shed could be used for chickens, tools or wood storage and a charming little shed could be a wonderful playhouse or quiet writing spot. Numerous apple and pear trees and many flowering hydrangeas add to the beautiful setting. Just 10 minutes to Hudson, Amtrak and Hawthorne Valley School, Farm, and Market, convenient to Taconic Parkway, skiing, golf, wonderful farm stands and Farmers Markets, and only two hours to New York City.
