Nestled into a ‘cup’ of woods, surrounded by winding, lace-like gardens, secret nooks and an expansive view of the lake, this English ‘Cottage’ style house exudes charm, quiet and tranquility. Its high-pitched roof line hides within it 16′ and 11.6′ height rooms and all the modern conveniences of central air, a generator, uv-light water system and radiant heat. Each room has many windows with views of the lake and the changing seasons magnified by the surrounding mountains. Downstairs one can enter from the front, through the mudroom or the heated garage making the transference of packages and groceries warm and dry. The chef’s kitchen offers a well delineated dining area and access to a private terrace surrounded by stone and dripping with trees and flowering bushes. Opposite the kitchen is an office area through which on enters a study. Deeper inside the house is a very large living room anchored by a central wood burning fireplace and banked with window seats and built-in shelving and cupboards to the back. At the end of the house is the primary bedroom, walk-in dressing area and full bath. Upstairs is a balcony overlooking the living room and a reading/library niche. A long hallway of large closets, two bedrooms and shared full bath complete the sleeping areas. Both rooms have lake views. Completely updated mechanicals and septic makes this house worry free and it’s within minutes to Pine Plains where there are ample shops for every day living, two magnificent restaurants and the Stissing Arts Center with an active schedule of astounding music and theater. The lake is great for swimming, fishing and kayaking and the surrounding hills for all sorts of outdoor activities without need of a car. Venturing forth however provides culture, farm markets, historical homes, the Culinary Institute, antiquing and the train to NYC.
