Property Type: Single Family
Description: This Log Post and Beam Luxury Home grows straight out of the land and epitomizes the Catskill Mountain region. Nestled in the ridge just below Wittenberg, Cornell, and Friday Mountain and surrounded by thousands of acres of wild state forest, this home expresses a sense of liveliness like no other. Drive past the stone pillars to be greeted by the warm and calming sounds of the Wittenberg Creek. During peak seasons, the property glows with the beauty of the Catskill Forest. You can feel the creativity and character of the home as soon as you pull up the driveway. The front door is framed with heavy stone to offset from the rest of the rustic contemporary feel. Walk inside to a welcoming 3-story foyer with a wonderful mix of log and stone that transitions into the rest of the home. The open-plan living space centers around one of two natural stone fireplaces. The dining space is part of the great room and just off of the massive gourmet kitchen. The sun-drenched kitchen opens up to a surrounding outdoor deck/patio area and includes updated appliances and a large food-prep wood island. Head up the main staircase that resembles dugout canoes (paying homage to the rich Native American history of the area) while grabbing a hold of the elegantly crafted wood and cast iron railings. On the 2nd level you will find the master bed and bath that are connected by 2 walk in closets. Down the hall are an additional 3 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms as well as the laundry room. Each of the upstairs principle bedrooms have a balcony that offers views of the Wittenberg Creek and mountains. “Twin Creeks”, given its name from the two streams that flow through the property, is located just 2 hours North of New York City. It is nearby to the shops and restaurants of Phoenicia, Woodstock, and Kingston. Adventure is lurking around the corner being just a drive away to the Ashokan Reservoir, popular ski resorts, and the endless amount of trails offered by the Catskill State Parks. Make this living masterpiece yours and reap the benefits of the highly peaceful and positive energy that flows throughout. The mountains are calling and you must go!
