Surrounded by the picturesque Catskill Mountains, this Olivebridge home—listed by Jeff Serouya of Berkshire Hathaway—is waiting for the perfect family to claim it as their own. A stone walkway connects the paved driveway to the glass front door and porch. Lined with flower beds, it’s the perfect place for a pair of rocking chairs, where you can enjoy a cup of coffee in the brisk morning or devour a paperback during a thunderstorm.
Inside, the kitchen’s walls, ceramic backsplash, and custom cabinets are all white, accentuated by gold and wood. These cooperate with hardwood floors to create a sleek, pristine cooking space. A full array of Thermador appliances allow residents to create any culinary concoction imaginable. The large, quartz-topped island provides plenty of room to cook large meals or bake dozens of cookies.
The kitchen leads into a great room with dining and lounge spaces. The quaint sitting area is ideal for hosting a soiree, movie marathon, or family game nights. French doors lead out to an enclosed 26-ft wrap-around porch which overlooks a conservation area and the mountain ridge off in the distance. The porch has ample room for a patio set, perfect for summer dinner parties or warm weather after-school lunches. With an untouched yard just over four acres, there is more than enough room for a pool, garage, or studio.
The final main room of the first floor is an oversized living room with space for seating around its focal point: the gas fireplace. Large windows on three of the four white walls ensure the space never feels small, making it the ideal place for accommodating guests, opening holiday gifts, or cozying up in front of the fire. Finally, a half-bath completes the first floor.
The four bedrooms can be found on the next level. The master suite features a double sink, shower stall, soaking tub for two beneath windows with a glorious mountain view, and generous walk-in closet. The bedroom’s exterior wall is more window than wall, treating residents to sun rays during the day and moon rays at night.
The second bedroom also boasts its own bathroom with a single vanity, shower bath, and expertly tiled ceramic flooring. The third and fourth bedrooms share the third full-bath to round out the top floor.
The lowest level of the home is a finished walk-out basement with ample storage space, a bathroom, and two grand rooms of untapped potential. Whether your family needs a study, game room, home office, guest room, or another den, these rooms can fulfill nearly any purpose. The door to the backyard opens to a patio covered by the first floor’s porch. Because of the walk-out feature, the rear-facing walls are exposed, allowing an abundance of natural light to shine in.
Asking Price: $1,595,000

It’s only a 20-minute drive to Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park, and a 30-minute drive to Kingston. The home is in Onteora School District, just 20 minutes away from the schools themselves.
