Cascading sounds of the Kaaterskill Creek! Old style living with impeccable improvements. Move-in condition. Stream frontage with guest house, near the towns of Catskill, Saugerties, and Woodstock. The country experience you have always dreamed of. Get away to your a 5.12 acre compound with two houses, a stream, and wooded acreage. Picnic under the trees while family and friends rock-hop in the stream, or sit stream-side on the deck and BBQ in the sun. Main and Guest Houses accommodate almost any lifestyle...with room for everyone, or a place to write or paint in privacy. Simple yet elegant aesthetic. The main house was a working mill in the 1880's! The core of the house retains that wonderful vernacular, with 21st century upscale renovations throughout; and comfort, ease, and space. Open great-room with a central kitchen that's white, clean and features white veined Calacatta marble and a gourmet work space. The kitchen opens into vaulted spaces that communicate extremely well with the dining room, den, and other open spaces overlooking the decks and stream. Entertaining is a breeze whether you're inside gathered around the wood stove, or just beyond the sliding glass doors having cocktails on the wrap around deck. A fantastic sunken living room with a full corner of paned windows allows the sounds of stream to filter in. The house features a wood stove in the Family Room, a pellet stove in the Living Room and gas fireplace in the Den. A delightful environment that is warm and cozy apres ski, or after a gourmet dinner overlooking the crisp fall foliage. Upstairs is an open Master Suite with vaulted and beamed ceilings...and more huge corner windows overlooking the yard and stream. Master bath (with a soaking tub and separate shower) has custom built-ins in the dressing area with fitted closets. The second bedroom has beautiful built-ins reminiscent of the area's old-world charm, yet there's a full bath beside it creating another lovely guest suite. Laundry is conveniently tucked in a hall closet. The Guest Cottage is only steps away. Here again, there are vaulted ceilings in a living room that is anchored by a gas fireplace. There's a bedroom with a large closet (or writing room). French doors give this charming cottage a happy, bright disposition and it includes an adorable eating area, a full bath, and another wrap around deck that borders the stream. Everything is private but with a compound feel. A rare, and beautiful Catskill Mountain property.
