The main level of the home boasts tall ceilings with sunlight streaming in through the skylights, which – along with the many windows – provide a dramatic view of the surrounding woods and sky. The beautiful wood fireplace (built with stones from the nearby Esopus Creek) in the double-height living room with refinished wood floors and ample seating is the focal piece of this home. The spacious dining room and well-appointed kitchen – with a Viking oven, dishwasher, deep copper sink, and Wolf cooktop and oven – are right off of the living room. There is radiant floor heating throughout this main level.
The private primary bedroom suite on the second floor gives you lots of room for a king bed and additional furnishings, as well as the ensuite bathroom with walk-in shower and slate tile throughout. On the ground floor are two more sunny bedrooms, a second full bath, a laundry room, and a large living area with built-in bookshelves that could make a great office, gym, or media room.
This home has a whole-house generator and high-speed internet. Recent improvements include: refinished wood floors, new deck, freshly painted interior, new washer,/dryer, dishwasher, oil tank, hot water heater, and more.
Surrounding the home is perennial landscaping, as well as wooded areas lush with ferns and other native foliage. The deck off of the living room overlooks a generous side yard with a stone patio and fire pit, and a four-person cedar sauna with a new heating element is tucked underneath. Up a small hill from the home sits a beautiful custom wine cellar building with storage space for hundreds of wine bottles – and even more climate controlled wine storage in the detached two-car garage.
A set of winding stone steps takes you through the trees down to the picturesque and serene pond. There is also a wooden boat shed for storing your canoe or paddleboards. A few-minutes walk away is a community pool you can join, as well a network of neighborhood hiking trails.
You have lots of options for nearby towns including 10 minutes to Margaretville with shops and a grocery store, and 30 minutes or less to Phoenicia, Bovina, Roxbury, and Delhi. You are also close to fishing in the East Branch of the Delaware River, kayaking in the Pepacton Reservoir, and some of the best hiking trails in the Catskills. All this, and just 2 hours and 15 minutes from the GWB in NYC!
