Set well back from the private road, a long gravel driveway gives you a sense of peace and privacy. As you reach the end of the drive and arrive at the home, you’ll first notice how the natural wood and modern black exterior harmonize perfectly with the surroundings, and the pitched rolled bitumen roof creates a handsome silhouette against the forested backdrop.

Entering through the glass front door you are welcomed to an open layout, with a natural flow between kitchen, dining area, and living room. The kitchen showcases custom built cabinets and striking countertops and backsplash, made of Italian marble terrazzo designed by furniture artist Max Lamb.

The dining area is encased by sliding glass doors and large windows, allowing for country breezes, mountain views, and plenty of natural light. A spacious living room connects the kitchen and dining space to the bedrooms at the back of the house. A wood burning stove sits ready to offer warmth and comfort at the far end of the room.

There are three bedrooms, with the primary bedroom being en suite. The two bathrooms have both been recently renovated with imported Italian tile that gives each bathroom the clean lines and natural palette of a modern spa. Additionally the sinks, vanities, tubs, and lights have all been freshly updated.

The home is equipped with a whole-house generator so there is never a fear of a power outage. There is also high-speed internet so working remotely is no issue. Finally, there is a split-unit in the living room which provides A/C to the whole home on the warmest days of summer, or a bit of extra heat on the coldest days of winter.

The grounds are spread out over more than 7 acres with a private swimming pond, as well as an expansive grass lawn. There is a fenced in raised-bed garden with ample space for flowers and vegetables. Also, an attractive storage shed provides space for firewood, gardening and lawn tools, as well as room for kayaks and mountain bikes.

Finally, the Bully Hill Modern’s location is convenient to much of the areas’s highlights. Just down the road, enjoy the elevated dining of the North Branch Inn, the curated goods from the North Branch Cider Mill, and the area’s best breakfast sandwich at Rease’s Cup are all less than 5 minutes away. Callicoon, with its historic movie theater, distillery, shops, and access to the Delaware River is only 10 minutes away.
