Experience the physical bliss and spirituality of this land and contemporary homestead on about 115 acres of open meadows and forests. The property is occupying the South side of “East Mountain” with breathtaking postcard views of the Rondout Reservoir and the Shawangunk Mountain range. You are invited to listen to the sounds of peace and tranquility, and to enjoy the pristine quality of the natural elements surrounding you. It feels like paradise! Think family compound, glamping, farming - live off the land in complete seclusion only 2 hours from NYC yet 15 minutes to groceries, restaurants and the Shadowland Theatre. This property was once the Furman Farm, named after the 19th century pioneer family that worked the land for several generations, mostly dairy and subsistence farming. In 1969, the current owners' good stewardship began, and the property became the source of artistic inspiration for many over the course of 5 decades. To this day, the land is cultivated for organic annual crops in addition to the perennial harvest of wild berries, fruits, herbs and mushrooms. What started as a retreat evolved to a welcoming compound of a spacious and multi-roomed main residence and a guest/rental cottage, all with a lovely off-the-grid feel and unique character. The solar panels a bit further up the hill cover much of the annual usage of the main house. The original farm was built circa 1890 and the remnants of the structures were re-purposed in the 1969 first phase of construction. The hand-hewn beams and the cedar siding from barn were installed as interior post and beams and walls. The mid section of the main residence is where the barn once was, and the cottage, a.k.a the West House (currently rented), was built on the site of the former farmhouse. In 2002, two wings to the main residence were added using mostly locally sourced materials, such as wide-board oak floors. The spacious living room was expanded by an open kitchen and dining area with mountain views, and a spacious bedroom suite with balcony on the second floor. It features a master bath with a claw-foot tub, a walk-in shower and steam room and a walk-in cedar closet. The other wing, lovingly referred to as “The Bunkhouse,” added bed/guest rooms, and multi purpose spaces to work and play. The focal point of the living room is the magnificent stone fireplace over three floors next to the sculptural spiral staircase. The room upstairs also features a fireplace and the walk-out lower level has a wood stove that can be used to assist with heat in the rooms above. A two car garage and workshop space complete the picture. Step outside and appreciate the beauty of stone and vegetable gardens, a dining patio and many inviting places to sit. Play a round of Badminton on the lawn before cooling off in the cold pond a short stroll away.
