Drive over a welcoming bridged-stream and step into this immaculate authentic mid-century home where you will immediately feel the grace and sublime beauty of Woodstock's Abbey Road, an environmentally sensitive community. Arriving at the property from the gently winding dead-end street you'll be greeted by natures' beauty, all lovingly enhanced through the home's perennial gardens, a mix of flowering trees & local hardwoods which attract colorful butterfly and bird life. Even on winter's gray days, bright red cardinals flit from branch to branch just outside the windows. Every room in the home is filled with light, its' large windows have been carefully designed to take in the tranquil surrounding vistas. Sunrise and sunset are particularly spectacular here, viewed from the house, the deck or fields and woods. The subtle Feng Shui of several babbling creeks run along the edge of the 5.4 acres and a 2+ acre underground electric fence will allow your pets to play and explore safely. A sunny large 20 X 40 heated saline pool is a blue gem reflecting Mt Tobias in the background throughout the warm months. Here is a true haven for friends and family. Once inside the loft-style living space are all the amenities one desires. Soaring 18-foot ceilings in the living room are anchored at the far end by a floor-to-ceiling wood burning stone fireplace. The gourmet kitchen has a hooded six burner Wolf stove; Asko dishwasher; Jenn Air French Door refrigerator and polished granite counter-tops. The walk-in pantry is just perfect for storing every item a chef could need. Similarly, every room in the house boasts oversized closets. A generous media/family room is located opposite the living room and kitchen- wonderfully placed for both privacy and noise consideration. A graciously wide, sky-lit gallery leads to the bedrooms from the open living spaces. And what a master suite you'll discover! Large enough to have its own sitting area, king-sized bed, double-sized walk-in closets and a bath that offers all the space and light one could want. A "tea for two" tub is located in the second bathroom. Comfortable Trex decking just off the living room faces the gardens, pool, lawn and fields, with mountain views in the distance. The home-to-pool paths have well-planned night lighting as does the landscaping in the near and far lawn with their up-lit trees. A pool house with electric and water complete this picture. The attached heated garage even has ample wall-to-wall storage shelving and built-ins as well as a large attic. There is central A/C for the hottest days but it's rarely needed as Catskill mountain breezes cool the property all summer long. Likewise, a fenced raised bed vegetable and cutting garden provides both pleasure and a bounty of veggies throughput the growing seasons. The far side of the open lawns are bordered by old stone walls and back-up to state forever wild lands. The adventurous hiker can explore the trails that wind though the mountain and these woodlands. Or, should more defined, paved and manicured trails be your wish, Wilson State Park is a mile down the road and a joy to explore in all seasons, featuring a large fresh water pond attracting geese and duck during their seasonal migration. It's just another neighborhood paradise. This property is an easy ten minutes to town and thirty minutes to ski slopes, but, who will really want to leave this paradise?!
Helen knows the area thoroughly and showed us a number of properties in New Paltz. She was extremely patient as we decided to not pursue a few, often after multiple visits. Then, for the property we bought, she called us minutes after it became listed, got us the first showing, and we made an offer that was accepted. The house was not shown to any other parties and we had a signed contract and closed quickly. Through every step, including about the mortgage application, we received excellent guidance. Helen really came through for us and we now have a house we are truly happy with.Allen Ross
A joy to work with. Really not what I had come to expect. Straightforward, an advocate, not treating my small sale as anything lesser. I hope I have the opportunity to work with her again. I will definitely pass her name along!Itty - New Paltz
