ACCEPTED OFFER 8/24, CONTINUE TO SHOW. Coming down a tree-lined private road and crossing a stream to arrive at the dead-end that is the start of your nearly 5 acres to look up and see your house perched on the side of a gentle hill is a pretty great way to arrive home!
The ground floor is mostly open with massive ceilings and windows to help you appreciate being entirely surrounded by nature. The wood-burning stove creates a warm heart for the living space in winter, adding heat and a romantic flicker of light - and the sliding doors lead out to a flat deck that is completely private to enjoy the rest of the year.
The bathroom (with its clawfoot tub and window to the forest!) is on the ground floor, along with a generously sized bedroom, and there are two additional bedrooms upstairs.
The surrounding forest is truly spectacular with a healthy mix of trees, an ocean of mountain laurel bushes that bloom in spring, ferns surrounding the house in summer, and an explosion of color in fall. In spite of the sense of seclusion, the home is within 15 miles of the hiking, farmstands, breweries, and restaurants in Kerhonkson, Accord, Stone Ridge, and High Falls - plus also the Minnewaska State Park, Mohonk Preserve, Ashokan Reservoir, and Vernooy Kills Falls.
A small cleared spot of flat land a short distance from the house would be a great place to consider building an additional guest space, home office, or studio, building permits pending. Broadband internet is not yet available here (Spectrum has said it will be by February), but the current owners use an ATT hot spot to stream video, and satellite internet would also be available.
