On entrance, a modern, stucco facade sets a soothing stage at Whispering Pines, opening to its open main level surrounded by walls of windows and soaring ceilings. The sunny living space is anchored by an efficient, wood burning stove, before flowing into a generous dining area with access to an expansive sundeck that wraps around to the front of the house. The chef’s kitchen features Bertazzoni appliances, high end custom Italian cabinetry and natural quartzite countertops.

The lower level houses three airy bedrooms, each with private access to the grounds. The primary bedroom’s en suite bathroom leans spa-like, with its soak tub and textures, while the second shared bathroom evokes a similar sentiment. The reading nook feels hand-carved out of the hallway, tying each room together.

Design elements throughout the home include limewash walls and plaster finishes, built-in shelving and rounded bullnose edges. The custom Italian cabinetry and high end German window package lend a sense of precision and poise. Built in 2024, the home’s envelope features EIFS stucco siding and a standing seam metal roof. Design aficionados will recognize the complex architecture and engineering – a shape that began as a hand drawn idea and over many months became a reality.

Enjoy the outdoors at Whispering Pines on its 700 square foot sundeck – or on its second smaller (200 square foot) deck that extends off the main living space. Beautiful rock gardens are dotted around each exterior door, and a few steps further lead you to an oversized fire pit. Adirondack chairs perched on the hillside direct you further down to the riverfront, audible from the home and swimmable in summer months.

For further adventuring, Whispering Pines is part of the Black Forest Club, a sought after private community offering residents exclusive access to 1,100 acres of mapped hiking trails, swimming holes, stunning ravines, fishing, and four-season fun.

Whispering Pines is tucked away from it all and yet close to conveniences and adventure as you explore the Upper Delaware River Valley. It’s just minutes from the Kadampa Meditation Center, Homestead School, Circle Park, 10 minutes to Barryville or Eldred for groceries, shopping, farmers market, coffee, dining, and libations. It’s less than 15 minutes from the renowned Forestburgh Playhouse and kayaking adventures on the Rio Reservoir. Last, Port Jervis’ train and amenities are a mere 20-minute drive, and New York City is just 2 hours away by car.
