This renovated and contemporary Kerhonkson home with views of the Shawangunk Ridge is located on a quiet, private road and part of a small group of homes that share 17+ acres of shared common forest which include a private swimming hole. While the home sits on 1 acre, you’ll have all that shared forest acreage to hike, swim, and play! Enter through the mudroom/laundry room and into the bright four-season sunroom that captures views of the Shawangunk Ridge and the surrounding forest. This space is extra cozy with the addition of a gas stove and is ideal for dining and/or additional living area. The sunroom leads to the open living room and kitchen with concrete countertops, stainless steel range and adorable vintage-style refrigerator. Painted cedar walls and ceilings throughout and oversized picture windows that bring in lots of natural light really brighten up the space. A wood-burning stove make this a perfect area for lounging while taking in the views. Sliding glass doors provide access to the large, back deck for grilling and entertaining as well as the yard with its fire pit, stream that runs along the edge of the property, and open views of the Gunks! The first floor also includes a half bath and a spacious and bright primary bedroom and ensuite bathroom with walk-in shower and extra wide vanity for two. Upstairs, there is one bedroom with ample closet space and sliding glass doors that open out to a balcony where you can take in the sunrise in the mornings, a third bedroom with even more closet space and built-in shelves, linen closet, and an additional full bathroom. Improvements include new kitchen, half bath, primary en-suite bath, flooring, picture windows, interior and exterior paint, mini-split units, light fixtures, vaulted bedroom ceiling, and built-ins as well as updates to the balcony, deck, upstairs bathroom, and more. A small storage shed and larger cabin/shed on the property provide additional storage and/or workspace options. At the end of Hickory Hill Road, you'll find access to 17+ acres of shared common forest and a trail that leads down to the creek and your very own swimming hole which is shared among the small group of homes in the association. With the convenience of hiking and swimming just down the road, the common land is really the icing on the cake! Ideally located in Kerhonkson, this property is just 10 minutes from local favorites Damn Good Honey Farmstand, Rough Cut Brewing Co., Outpost BBQ, and farm markets at Saunderskill Farm and Kelder’s Farms, 15 minutes to all the popular farm-to-table spots in the area (Arrowood Farm Brewery, Westwind Orchard, and Stonehill’s Farmhouse) and hiking and other outdoor activities at Minnewaska State Park and Mohonk Preserve, 20 minutes to Stone Ridge, 30 minutes to more shops and restaurants in popular towns like New Paltz and Mountain Dale, and just under 2 hours from NYC.
