Clean + modern + character + luxury. This home has large lawns on three sides, all surrounded by 16 undeveloped acres of forested woodlands shot through with historic stone walls and abutting the famed Hudson Woods development. The acreage is ripe for your next project or could simply provide a beautiful buffer between you and your neighbors. Built with top-of-the-line finishes and mechanicals to feel expansive and easy, this home provides plenty of quality space for friends and family to come together and relax. The loft-like ground floor has ceilings that are 10'6" high, massive wooden beams repurposed from a construction project in Manhattan, a super-efficient Cape Cod wood stove, a media room, and a kitchen with a 36" Wolf oven, Miele dishwasher, Liebherr refrigerator, and walk-in pantry. Walk through the glass double doors from the kitchen/dining area to enjoy the large composite deck surrounding the partially above-ground heated pool and shaded area for outdoor dining. The upstairs also boasts extra-tall ceilings (9'6") with three large rooms (two counted as bedrooms and all with closets) and a full bath in addition to the master suite with its soaking tub, large balcony, spa shower, and walk-in closet. The siding is HardiPlank (with a 25-year guarantee on the color), and throughout the house you'll find wide plank rift and quarter sawn white oak flooring, in-ceiling speakers, Marvin windows, LED lighting, and bathroom fixtures from Grohe, Duravit, and Toto. There's a two-car garage that leads to a huge storage space above, and has plenty of space for a workshop. The garage door leads into an ample mudroom/laundry room. Three raised beds are fenced in and ready for your planting, and the home is surrounded by old growth chestnuts, blueberry bushes, lilacs, azaleas, and fruiting apple and pear trees. The woodshed even connects to a small barn with oak flooring and pine walls that could be repurposed. *If* you decide to venture out from your own little corner of country paradise, you'll be surrounded by options from hiking the Vernoy Kills trail with its well-known waterfall/swimming holes; picking fruits and veggies or visiting the petting zoo at Kelder's Farm; stopping for a meal or cider donut at Saunderskill Farms; taking a beautiful country drive to the restaurants/bars/cafes in Stone Ridge, High Falls, Woodstock; or getting out in nature even more with skiing less than an hour away and plenty more hiking, climbing, swimming, and cross-country skiing at the Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park.
