The minute you drive up to this wonderful Woodstock NY estate you will fall in love with the hand crafted cedar gates at the entrance which slowly open, welcoming you to a world unto its own. Private, lush, pristine and exquisitely appointed, this secluded oasis sits at the end of one of Woodstock's best roads.
The first room you'll enter is the breezeway that leads to an oversized cooks kitchen (once featured in House Beautiful magazine). Home chefs and foodies will love this room! It features granite and stainless counter space, cabinets galore, an 8-burner Garland range with pot-filler, two ovens, two dishwashers, Sub Zero refrigerator, a prep sink, Brazilian slate floors and backsplash and vaulted ceilings with skylights.
The open plan kitchen and Great-room are flooded with natural light, and warmed at night by a double sided fireplace set in an impressive wall of a stone. The light filled office/library shares the fireplace, has its own deck and overlooks the lush lawn leading to the pool.
The spacious master suite overlooks the manicured grounds and has its own fireplace. Two additional guest bedrooms in the main house are supplemented by “Le Chalet,” a private wood-paneled guest suite reached through a windowed breezeway. More on that later.
The jewel in the crown is the beautiful saline pool, surrounded by cedar decking, fencing and a Mediterranean-style pergola for the ultimate in outdoor entertaining.
And now to the "Romantic Chalet". Located above the two car garage, the Chalet has a massive stone fireplace, full bath and a separate entrance and parking area. It has been successfully used for short-term rentals. Whether you plan on having guests, have teenagers who wold love their own "place" or prefer the idea of a rental - this is a lovely feature with many options.
