Close to Woodstock and Kingston, this beautiful, fully renovated and updated 1825 farmhouse provides sophisticated country living on a quiet road with unusually low taxes. Mature planted gardens surround this unique home that includes a show stopping 25’ x 22’ studio. The studio has radiant heat flooring and a separate entrance with additional original barn doors that open to the outside. The covered porch leads to a loft style, open-plan kitchen, dining and living space that lends itself to great entertaining and everyday use. Unusual and original 1825 wood beams add character with a fireplace and wood-burning stove that heats the downstairs and upstairs main house during the winter. Living room floors are Acadia hardwood. The modern kitchen features marble countertops, a farmhouse sink, and butcher block surfaces. Adjacent to the kitchen is a pantry plus a utility room that includes washer, dryer, utility sinks and a new multi-boiler that runs on propane, which gives hot water on demand, offering additional savings. Solar panels are leased from Sunrun, a publicly held company. The new owner can expect to pay under $125 per month for this year, with 2% increases per year as opposed to the 60% increase that incurred this year from the utility company. Upstairs, the primary bedroom has wood floors, a large walk-in closet and access to a large attic 450 feet for storage. The two light filled bathrooms have marble floors and new shower. A second wing of the house provides additional privacy from the main house. The smaller room 13 x11’ leads into a large studio, both of which have radiant heat. One exit leads to the backyard and a path that circles around the house. The second exit is the charming original barn doors which can be opened to a level grassy yard and the paved circular driveway. The studio provides unlimited possibilities. Use this space as an art or yoga studio, place to rehearse or perform, or play music. It can also be converted to an additional living or sleeping space. Outdoors there’s plenty to do. Gardening, hiking the trails behind the house, sitting around the fire pit, barbecuing or unwinding in the 6 person hot tub. A raised wooden walkway leads back to the house where there is a 13 x 28 screened in porch, which can be converted to a year round space. The room is large enough to provide another living space for a couch, chairs and dining set. The screened in porch can also be entered from the French doors opening from the home’s living/dining room, extending the space for entertaining and holidays. Nature lovers will appreciate the roses, lilac, wisteria and three kinds of hydrangea, as well as peach, elderberry, bing cherry, willow tree and two giant 200 year old catalpa trees. Hikers will take advantage of quick access to the Ashokan rail trail and walkway.
