On a quiet country road in Saugerties is where you'll find this lovingly maintained, contemporary cottage complete with a picturesque backyard pond. The home’s size and location make it an ideal full-time abode or second residence, being that it is under two hours from NYC.
Through the front door is the bright and well-designed kitchen/dining space with white-washed pine floors (which can be found throughout the whole home!) and access onto the back deck - ideal for summertime dinner parties. Off to the right - the ample living area includes a stylish wood-burning fireplace, cathedral ceilings, and an adorable loft space that would make for the perfect little reading nook!
Down the hall are the home’s three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The first two bedrooms are wonderful in size with plenty of light and deep closets. The pristine first full bathroom offers more all-white design elements such as penny and subway tile and modern vanity. The primary suite is a sun-filled space with a private en-suite bathroom, walk-in closet, and sliding glass doors that open onto the back deck, which spans the entire length of the back of the house and is the perfect place to enjoy your morning cup of coffee! The basement of the home holds many possibilities.
Offering a one-car garage, laundry, and storage space, this area has been framed out to easily be converted into more livable space, such as an informal tv room and upgraded home gym while still keeping all of the other functional spaces.
Outside, the pond is the real centerpiece of the property, surrounded by beautiful tall trees and open pasture beyond the property line, all of which make up the view from the back deck. Mostly composed of open greenspace - the grounds are easy to maintain and offer some light landscaping that perfectly frames the house and a semi-circle stone driveway. Head down to your pondside fire pit in the evenings and enjoy the stargazing!
When you’re ready to venture out, the hardest decision you’ll have to make is what amazing town you’d like to go to! 5 minutes to Palenville, 13 minutes to Saugerties, 15 minutes to Catskill, 16 minutes up the mountain to Tannersville, 20 minutes to Woodstock, and 25 minutes across the bridge to Hudson. Nearby you’ll also find plenty of hiking, skiing, and swimming options as well as easy access to the NYS Thruway with a quick, under 2-hour drive to the city.
