From the spacious, wraparound deck, enter the home into a well-appointed kitchen with shaker style-cabinets, open shelving, white tile backsplash and wood countertops. A convenient island makes an ideal coffee station or work from home space.

In the main living space, vaulted ceilings and plenty of glass flood the space with light and keep the home feeling open and airy. Anchoring the open living/dining space, a wood stove brings the cozy factor and makes the space feel complete. From the living room, double sliding doors open onto the deck, framing out a lovely view of the surrounding forest and distant ridgeline.

Off the main hallway, a convenient utility room is equipped with a washer/dryer. Next is the first of two guest rooms, where a vaulted ceiling keeps the space feeling open and inviting. The second bedroom features windows on two sides, making the most of the natural light and woodsy views. A full bath shared by both bedrooms, plus the main space, features black hex tile floors and a white subway tile shower surround.

An L-turn off the main hallway leads past double hall closets to the primary suite. Among the many highlights here are the large picture window, generous en suite bath with walk-in shower plus a soaking tub with a view, and a private entrance onto the spacious terrace. The terrace itself offers abundant space for outdoor dining, entertaining and relaxing throughout the year.

Outside, Blue Hill’s seven acres have been left mostly wild, with mature trees and large ferns creating a calming natural environment – plus a fire pit site to take it all in. If you can tear yourself away from this charming oasis, it’s just fifteen minutes or less from some of our very favorite Catskills Main Streets in Livingston Manor, Jeffersonville and Callicoon.
