Ever-changing light over the Ashokan Reservoir awaits you at this elegantly designed and appointed four-bedroom contemporary colonial. From poolside, from the bluestone stepped gardens, from the large open living area to the airy bedrooms, the spell of the sensuous meeting of mountains and water is your view.
This lovely and spacious home, on a private hill top, is full of the ambient light of mountains and rivers. Skylights, large French doors and windows bring in light from multiple directions. The privacy and openness of the setting is reflected in the interior.
The house has a state-of-the-art kitchen with custom-built cabinetry and an open floor plan, which flows into the living room and solarium. Marble bolections surround the double fireplace, which faces the solarium’s view of the mountains and reservoir and into the middle of the capacious, pleasant sitting area. The main floor has a separate, quiet family room, with its own fireplace, a dining room, laundry, utilities and baths.
Upstairs there are two king-sized bedrooms and a very large master bedroom with vaulted ceilings, walk-in closet and a spa-type bathroom. On the other side of the house, with its own separate staircase, is a completely private, loft-like bedroom and bath, which could easily be converted into a full apartment.
This unique cedar-clad property is close to everywhere you want to be: Woodstock, Kingston, Phoenicia, hiking and skiing, and is minutes from the NYS Thruway. It was built to far exceed building standards at the time of its construction. It is framed from 2x6” kiln-dried Douglas Fir and insulated with the highest R-Value possible. All the glass is argon-filled low-energy and double-paned, making the structure highly energy efficient. Every detail was custom-designed and -fashioned. The house has top-of-the-line mechanicals and has been scrupulously maintained.
This incredible property is being offered with 3 lots: the house and its own lot, SBL# 37.4-3-26; and two additional, separately deeded, buildable, DEP-approved lots adjacent: SBL#s 37.4-3-12 and 37.4-3-27. The additional lots, 2.4 and 1.4 acres respectively, are NYC DEP-approved for two structures on each lot, giving the new owner both privacy and, if so desired, an eventual return on their investment. The house is also offered on its own without the additional lots at $699,000: see MLS #20174013.
