This home is all about the views. Situated within the Catskills, it commands distant views of five states: New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont!
Attention to detail is paramount at this property. Case in point: the double doors leading from the foyer to the entrance hall, carved to look like sinuous trees. And the entrance hall itself is designed like a gallery, with lit showcases to store collections.
The kitchen has everything a gourmet cook could want, including a chef’s range, large fridge, and a breakfast bar that flows into the open-concept dining area. A brick-look tile floor and glass-tile backsplash add Old World elegance, and a leaded-glass window over the sink lends an Arts-and-Crafts touch.
The dining and living areas face walls of glass to take in those gorgeous views. A stacked-stone fireplace wall keeps things cozy in the living area. There’s a second dining area inside the three-story peaked tower adjacent to the living area; each story has its own wraparound deck to take in more-than-180-degree views.
Upstairs, the master bedroom also has a stacked-stone wall; the bed faces a wall of windows that make morning wake-ups worth it. There are three other bedrooms in the main house. Walk across the outside deck — a spectacular rocky waterfall splashes underneath — to a heated garage with a 1-bedroom caretaker’s apartment above that has its own balcony and amazing views.
If the nearly 4,500 sq ft of space isn’t enough, there’s a 2,100 sq ft, semi-finished walkout basement with radiant heat and 12’ ceilings. The location couldn’t be better, as the property is close to Windham and about a half-hour’s drive to Catskill or Hudson.
