Experience the ultimate joys of country living at this private 32-acre setting in the magnificent Columbia County countryside. Representing a cherished, quiet escape from a busy life, this modern custom-built retreat sits on historic Hawk Hill, the last of only 5 residences on a tree-lined private country road. Surrounded by woodlands, nature lovers will delight in the walking trails, lush woods brimming with birch, pine, oak, and maple trees; original stone fence; and the lovely pond, complete with a large deck for morning coffee while basking in the sun. A winter wonderland as well, enjoy snowshoeing and hiking directly from your doorstep. The light-filled home, enveloped in uncommon natural beauty, is appointed with remarkable architectural details inside and out. Peaked roofs, over 50 windows (incl. 30 casement windows and 6 dormers), pine floors and paneling, and hand-crafted pine and cherry wood cabinetry lend this inviting residence a modern rural vibe and a welcoming ambience throughout. Highlights include a dine-in kitchen with a cathedral ceiling, a dazzling great room (or epic artist’s studio) with barn-style doors that can open for warm-weather entertaining; luxe bath; a gorgeous master bedroom; and a skylit third floor sleeping loft. Combining private rooms and open loft spaces, ample flexible live/workspace exists throughout the three high-ceilinged levels. Cleared land encircling the home is ideal for summer fun, dreaming, birdwatching, and gardening. There’s also plenty of space to add a pool, tennis court, or deck for your hot tub.An enchanting custom-built cabin with a sleeping loft, wood-burning stove, and shady porch enhances this beautiful setting which is close to many of the region’s most popular destinations including Hudson, Great Barrington and Albany – all within a 35-minute drive. Only minutes from the historic Hudson Valley villages of Ghent, Chatham, and Spencertown, the area is approximately 2 hours from Boston and is less than a 2.5-hour drive from Manhattan via the scenic Taconic Parkway.
