Description: A true homage to beauty. The land and views across vast ranges of the Catskills are the first impression you have of this paradise, on a 25 acre tucked away property with pristine woodlands, trails, and even a quarry pond. Nature and the sounds of silence reign over this Woodstock 4585 sq ft home. Everyone will be enchanted upon their first vision as the winding, forested drive opens to the vista of extensive lawns, dappled sunlight dancing through mature trees and an eternal open sky with distant mountain ranges framed by blue & golden light - even the Berkshires rise in the distance. A welcoming stone walk takes one to the front entrance hallway and this opens to what I can only say are the many wonders of this gracious home. A few steps lead you into the dramatic two story living room with its exposed wood ceilings in the arts & crafts mode, a wide & deep fireplace, a second story corner balcony all add more magic. There is an enchanting spacious library with entrances from either the front hall or living room. Off both the library and living room is a stunning solarium, its hand made green tiled floor matches nature's carpet and extensive glass allows both sunlight, and magic moonlight, continually into the house. What a special place for a sunny chat and tea. Or, choose a lovely sitting room and special nook adjacent to to the dining room. Of course, both the cozy seating area between living room and dinning room have sliding doors to the deck with its forever views. The pristine kitchen is made for ease from the large center island to quartz counter surfaces. The kitchen was totally renovated just two years ago and has all new appliances and cabinetry. Moving onward- down a hallway from the "main" living area, pass a wonderful "hidden laundry room" which has built-in benches, cupboards and tiled floors for easy access to and from the pool. A full bath is opposite this area complete with a large sauna, great in any season. On sunny days leisurely float in the blue jewel of the heated pool and gaze up to the vast open skies, forest & mountains. The hallway opens to the 985 sq ft "ballroom!" Really, an amazing room in which one could imagine Baryshnikov performing with abandon, children running happily or simply a place for friends and family fun and games. This high ceilinged great room awaits your vision- it could include a pool or ping pong table, fitness equipment or an extensive media room. It is presently the owner's painting studio. This white and light room has doors on either side, one entrance from the front of the house and on the far wall sliding doors out to a deck overlooking the pool and woodland beyond. And, next the second story awaits. The bold carpeted stairway from the living room leads to the hallway and bedrooms. The master bedroom is hallmarked by its balcony view into the rafters and over a portion of the two story living room. There are plenty of closets and a dressing area within the bedroom all lined with custom closets leading to the master bath. The second bedroom is tranquil, its windows filled with mountaintop views. The third and fourth bedrooms were combined to make one front to back room and photographic work space for the current owner. To recreate bedrooms will be easy if desired. Or, keep the spacious room and hook into the water from existing sink to create a second ensuite bedroom. For all the beauty that the home embodies, including the pool and the beautiful grounds, the true magic lies in the acres and acres of forest land, natural quarry pond and manicured trails that this owner has carefully nurtured. While exploring the woods listening to the sounds of the wind in the trees, there is the knowledge of further trails that connect to large acreage for hiking. The Seller has said that she walks for miles on her land and adjacent woods never stepping onto a roadway and rarely seeing another soul on the trail. All this magnificence is an easy 6 minutes into the Village.
There is an 800 foot deep new well for the house which also has a whole house water filter system. The original cistern is used to fill the pool and water the lawns. The 472 sq ft living room appears magnified in size as two story vaulted ceiling creates drama of space. The great room floors have some paint from art in progress and will not be refinished prior to a sale. The upstairs office/darkroom will have darkroom equipment disassembled and all walls, electric & plumbing repaired. The home has a fireproof safe which is bolted securely. And, a home alarm system is in place that includes monitoring the winter high/low temperature should the home be vacant. An extensive list of detailed improvements is available in the Associated Docs.
