Water & privately nestled in the Catskill mountains, minutes to hiking, an easy drive to skiing, apple picking, rock climbing, close to the rural towns of Stone Ridge, Woodstock & Phoenicia, communities with so much personality, creativity and fun, is where you’ll find this cool, newly renovated contempo cottage. This 16+ acre sanctuary is surrounded by forest & meadow, and your very own spring fed pond where you’ll sit on the bank to meditate or take the canoe out for a little fishing! Watch the blue heron fly from tree to shore, stroll the paths that meander throughout or create your own farm to table veggie garden! This comfortable & inviting country home has a brand new addition with sunlit living space open to the dining and kitchen areas, just the perfect addition for social and family gatherings. Both the new addition and the first floor master BR, offer a wall of windows and sliders so you’ll enjoy all four seasons inside & out. Well designed kitchen with granite countertops, wood cabs, SS appliances & breakfast bar, beamed cathedral & vaulted ceilings, wide board wood, pine & slate flooring with radiant heat in the kitchen & dining areas all add to the flavor of the design! A woodstove in both the first floor bedroom and open living space will keep you cozy on cool nights! Den/office could easily be a media room or BR. There is so much to offer & too much to list, so please come and see for yourself. Wrap around decking, patios, organic raised bed gardens and orchard, stone walls, walking trails, dipping pool and stone waterfall flowing into the pond complete the picture. Adding a studio or cottage would make this the perfect compound! Minutes to the Ashokan Reservoir, and an easy drive to restaurants, markets, films, shops & more.
