Property Type: Single Family

Description: Unparalleled! Casually elegant. Warm & sophisticated. This compound was built for a family that knows how to enjoy life's very best offerings and who have created the perfect estate from which to do so. There are brilliant wide mountain views in all seasons as the property is sited high on Ohayo Mountain and takes advantage of the long & wide vista to Overlook & the Catskills beyond. The tiny white tip of the Woodstock village steeple is seen deep in the valley. The owners' joy of beauty and many years of developing mature landscaping creates an ambiance of delight. There are a multitude of perennials, flowering plants & trees, evergreens & large shade trees. The expansive manicured lawn flows gently down the hill from the house to the gunite pool, pool house & organic veggie garden beyond. The homes exterior bluestone patios and the enclosed screen porch all take advantage of this magnificence. The blue jewel of the pool and pool-house is privately integrated into all of this. For summer entertaining the pool is far enough away from the home & its detached guest house to be discreet. The pool-house has its own bath, outdoor shower and game & party room. Upon entering the 4500 sq ft residence one is welcomed into a perfectly spacious entry hall lined with cherry closets. From this statement hall step into the graciously easy living area lined at the far side by a bank of floor to ceiling windows. Essentially the entire living area is visually grounded around the views and the gourmet kitchen which is defined by its three sides of wide granite counter-tops and Wolf 6 burner range. The long farm dining table is along the windows for the view & additional ease of serving. The dining area is accessed easily from both the living room & screen porch. The living room is totally designed for comfort! Enjoy the contemporary bluestone fireplace from sofas or, from the long deep window seat with its soft cushions to stretch out upon & appreciate both interior & exterior views. A huge game room or sitting room which hosts a regulation pool table (being left for new owner) is steps away from the homes center. Behind closed doors you'll discover a dark & cozy media room for viewing films, reading or just curling up & dreaming away. This room offers a distinct contrast to the rest of the interiors high, open light-filled spaces. On the ground level you'll also discover two bedrooms & two full baths. Discretely designed into the cherry woodwork is a hidden and very large pantry & laundry room adding to ease & comfort demanded by this lifestyle. Upon arriving on the second story landing, filled with natural, light you'll appreciate the long hallway- its walls perfect for art. Here are three more generous rooms, one the owner’s office. Each room offers its own ambiance. It is rare that one discovers such a perfect master bedroom. Enter the solid doors into another art lined hall, note the exceedingly large walk-in closet to the left, built in storage throughout and a spacious master bath to the right. And, finally, enter into this unique & inspiring vaulted ceiling bedroom. The bed faces the angled windows and a private walk-out balcony- all to take full advantage of this best of wondrous Catskill estate views. The basement has a wine room, locked and available to see on second showings. Certainly this extraordinary property in its private yet close to Woodstock village location shows tremendous pride of ownership. No detail has been spared in the upkeep or planning for future comforts! Come and make this a part of your future, sharing the bounty of this paradise with friends in groups either intimate or large!
The floors are zoned radiant heat. There are 3 A/C zones in the house and one in the guesthouse. The 3 year old metal & insulated roof has lowered energy bills by 40%. There are two superstore water systems for grand entertaining and no fear of loosing water. (The current owners have often hosted 20 or more for weekend house-parties!) A commercial grade well was added to serve the house, pool, guesthouse & gardens. The interior & exterior were painted in 2017. Importantly, a whole house generator never fails should rare weather cause brief electrical disruption. Note the long stretch of meadow to the right of the drive upon entering and with its' fenced berry garden. This is a separate parcel being transferred in the sale and may be built upon in the futures should an addition to the compound be contemplated. The media room furniture and pool table remain with sale if desired! A great many of the trees looking out from the house toward the view are on the property and may be topped of cut down should new owner desire.
