Perched on a quiet dead end road in Pawling is where you'll find this sun-filled home with year round views. At just an hour and 20 minutes north of NYC, this abode makes for the perfect weekend getaway! Through the front door, the ground level has an open concept living/dining/kitchen space. The southern wall of the home extends up into the second floor and is made up almost entirely of windows (all new!) that illuminate all of the home's common spaces. The kitchen offers updated appliances, quartz countertops and a big picture window that looks out onto the back patio with access to the space. This floor also has the first full bath, utility/laundry room, and a bonus space that is currently in use as an amazing office space! The second floor consists of the home's two bedrooms and the second full bath. The first bedroom is a cozy space with a mini-split, compact closet, and enough room for a full size bed. On the other side of the walkway (which is open to below!) is the primary suite, a large space with eastern facing windows and plenty of space for additional furniture. The shared full bath is bright and modern with a skylight and an oversized soaking tub surrounded by bright marble. Many updates have been made to the home including concrete floors, mini-splits, stylishly redone bathrooms, many new windows, landscaping, and so much more! Outside, the back patio is the perfect place to enjoy a dinner al fresco. Here you truly get a sense of how high in elevation the home sits with beautiful views to the northwest - we're calling it now, this is the perfect place for a hot-tub! The home is surrounded by tall trees and rock formations and plenty of greenery close to the road for added privacy. With a little love, the shed that's on the property could easily become a great little workshop or additional storage space. While tucked away on the most picturesque road, 17 Mount Tom is also nearby to so much! This home is just a 4 minute drive to the town of Pawling, 15 minutes to Lagrangeville, and 30 minutes to Poughkeepsie and Millbrook. There are also plenty of nature trails and preserves nearby and Whaley Lake is just 10 minutes away. You'll also enjoy being just 5 minutes to the Pawling Metro North line and just 1 hour and 20 minutes from NYC!
