This spacious, historic carriage house sits among the rolling hills and meadows just outside of Margaretville. You won’t have to choose between country charm and modern style, because this home gives you the perfect balance of the two with hand-hewn beams, deep-set windows, wide-plank floors, and updated bathrooms and kitchen.


The front entry brings you to the first floor with 2 large ensuite bedrooms. The tiled foyer is the perfect place to drop your bags, boots, or skis after a long day of exploring the area. Separate rooms for laundry and storage are an added convenience.


You’ll find the hub of the home — the newly expanded and updated kitchen and dining room — up the stairs on the second floor. You'll likely spend most of your time in this space, whether it's morning coffee looking over the pond or late night dinners around the table. A large island offers plenty of storage and extra seating. 


From the kitchen, you easily flow into the dramatic and warm living room with multiple seating areas and a beautifully updated fireplace. The light streaming in from the large, deep-silled windows balances the dark wood of the beams. The retractable projector, screen, and bluetooth speakers make this the perfect spot for a movie night.


On the third floor, you’ll find 2 more large, light-filled bedrooms, one with a beautiful enameled French Godin wood stove. We’ve saved the best for last: the bright and renovated bathroom features both shower and soaking tub, as well as the best view in the house of the pond and mountains through the huge picture window! 


The home also includes: high-speed internet, Mysa smart thermostats, and updated electrical. Furniture is available as a separate purchase. 


If you can tear yourself away from the beautiful interior, you'll find ample activities outside on the home’s 4.2 acres. Off the back door is a multi-level deck with ample space for grilling, dining, and lounging in the sun. Sit at the fire pit and you are surrounded with mountain views. The spring-fed pond — just steps away — is clear, cool, and ready for a float or a dip. Venture up the stone steps to the upper meadow for the most stunning scenes of rolling mountains. This home is part of the Thorn Apple Estates HOA, which offers a community pool just down the road and a shared network of hiking trails. 


The property is located just outside of the adorable village of Margaretville, where you will find a specialty grocer, Zada’s cocktail bar, fresh pastries at Café Marguerite, and the new Oda Wine Garden. Skiing and hiking are close, with both Belleayre and Plattekill Mountains only 20 minutes away. All this and just 2.5 hours to the GWB in NYC!
