Lake Hill, New York / $460,000 

Let me start by saying, this property must be seen to fully understand the charm of its grounds, home, and views. It’s a dreamy Woodstock spot and worth the effort in getting the house back up to snuff. Bask in total seclusion at this lovely 6+ acre New England style homestead with a long tree lined entrance from the main road. Your daily view includes gorgeous mountains and meadows surrounding the property, a large in-ground pool, plus there is a guest house with kitchen and bath. Or a rental if you like.

The house includes a cobblestone fireplace, two baths, one ensuite with the downstairs master bedroom, another large bedroom downstairs, a small bedroom/office downstairs as well. The kitchen/dining area is ample sized and very comfortable for guests to hang out with the cook. This whole area could be re-thought and recreated to use this large space differently, perhaps to create a much larger kitchen area. There are wood floors in need of re-finishing under all the carpeting, sweet covered porches front and back, two hot tubs, one overlooking the view outside, and the other under the floor in the master bedroom. The home is in need of TLC, and is being sold as is by the estate, and will be appreciated by those with vision and an appreciation for special and rare settings in our area.  CLICK HERE for full listing.
