Impeccable Contemporary Home with Extraordinary Views Every once in a very long while, there's a home built to satisfy the most discerning buyer in terms of design, craftsmanship, and location. This is, without question, one of those rare instances.
A long driveway off of a private road brings you to this single-story masterpiece that is as beautiful as it is supremely practical. Sited on a wooded 7-acre lot only 10 minutes from the center of Woodstock, the home was built to take full advantage of its unobstructed views of Overlook Mountain and complete seclusion.
Light and beauty from the surrounding forest pour into every room through oversized windows that illuminate the home’s unique interior design. The high wooden ceilings throughout contribute to the sense of space, and rafters that were milled directly from the property strengthen the connection between the home and its surroundings.
The living room and all three bedrooms enjoy direct access to an incredible 1,035 sq ft deck made of ipe wood – and the builder/seller has already worked into plans for an infinity pool with those same Overlook Mountain views, which can serve as inspiration or be negotiated for a 2021 completion date.
The generous floor plan lends to an atmosphere of rejuvenation and comfort, where one can relax by the oversized gas fireplace in the living room, cook a gourmet meal on professional-grade Thermador appliances in the chef's kitchen, or enjoy morning coffee on the spacious 385 sq ft screened-in porch.
The den and its adjacent full bathroom are located in a separate wing of the home and have a separate external entrance, which makes it perfect for anyone who needs extra space for a home office, gym, guests, family, an au pair, or anything else.
This home feels luxurious yet supremely comfortable, which is pretty much the highest praise we can think of for an estate in the Catskills. (Note: taxes are based on the current value of the land only.)
