OPEN HOUSE SUN, SEPT 10, NOON-3:00 At the foothills of the Catskills on a country road located between Woodstock and Saugerties is a gated entrance surrounded by park-like grounds dotted with metal sculptures by a local Saugerties artist. Behold a two-story gambrel roofed light-filled home - a spacious sanctuary on 8 landscaped and wooded acres. The flagstone entry foyer invites a natural flow of living room, dining room, kitchen, family room and half bath. The family room's stone fireplace with efficient wood burning stove insert provides a cozy atmosphere. Sliders in both the living room and family room open to a deck and the inviting inground pool framed by a dramatic mountain backdrop, towering centuries-old trees and acres of woods beyond. The den has its own private entrance and ensuite bath - perfect for a home office or perhaps a ground floor in-law suite for multi-generational living - room for everyone! Upstairs are four generous sized bedrooms that include an ensuite primary bedroom and an updated full bath in the hallway. The property includes a 20'x32' paddock barn that's ideal for horses, dogs, goats, sheep, chickens... or perhaps a conversion to a studio for art, athletic or business pursuits - charm and function! A picket fenced side yard for doggies and kids to play safely and supervised is convenient from the front entrance. Some recent improvements include: a whole house generator (2020), a water filtration system (2021), new water heater (2023) and all new gutters and guards. The full dry basement offers storage galore. Minutes to the villages of Woodstock, Saugerties and Kingston for dining, shopping, art galleries, films and HITS horse show events. A wonderful country homestead.
