Tucked into the mountainside midway between Woodstock and Saugerties, this very special private compound blends old world charm and character with an exquisite and thoughtful modern addition to the original 1893 main house. A custom built barn serves as a guest house and studio with three more bedrooms and a fantastic open living space featuring many handcrafted details. Inspiration abounds for creative people, or those simply seeking a country retreat with room for family and guests. There are wonderful cozy spaces within the main house. Nap or read by the fire, cook to your heart's content, relax on the three-season enclosed porch, or write your memoir in the loft space above the living room. Fish or paddle around in the pond and if you prefer to swim in a pool, you've got it! Steps away from the house an inviting in-ground gunnite pool with bluestone surround awaits, and a fire pit for chilly Fall days and stargazing on Summer nights. All mechanical systems in the main house have been updated and in the new kitchen addition is a basement level 20'x14' gym/workout space, laundry/utility room and a meditation space. Meander down the path from the house and over a footbridge to an AMAZING 64'x26' barn with soaring ceilings, 2 bedrooms and a bath downstairs and a bunk room up stairs. So perfect for large parties, lots of extra company, air B & B, music, dance, yoga or art studio. There are mountain views from the barn, and woodland and pond views from the main house. Have all the charming space you've ever dreamed of within 15 minutes of everything while feeling a world away. Only 2 hours from New York City. Saugerties is the home of Olympic Class equestrian HITS horse show events, Hudson River marinas and lighthouse, a charming village with eateries, galleries and shops. There is an indoor ice skating arena in the sports complex which is home to the annual Garlic Festival and 4th of July fireworks. Close to skiing, hiking, kayaking and just about all outdoor activities that the Catskills and Hudson Valley have to offer. Woodstock, only 10 minutes away is one of the most famous and picturesque small towns in the country, and is home to many artists, writers, musicians and actors with great restaurants, community events, hiking trails, a beautiful Tibetan Monastery, as well as a variety of other spiritual and artistic centers such as the Woodstock School of Art, Byrdcliffe Arts Colony, Woodstock Photography Center. Come see great musicians and performances at Levon Helm's studio, Colony or The Woodstock Playhouse. Close to Phoenicia for fly fishing, tubing and The Festival of the Voice.
