Upon arrival, a long wooded private drive introduces this unique home as the private oasis that it is, while withholding the expansive Catskill Mountains view until you reach the main interior spaces. The Arts & Crafts style home was designed with relaxed, fluid open spaces including two separate gathering rooms-one framing the alluring mountains, and the other, open to the kitchen beneath cathedral ceilings, and anchored by a fireplace. The first floor master suite is made private by a gallery and lower elevation, with glass doors viewing the landscape. Adding to the first floor is the most charming dining room, also with western facing walls of glass. The stylish kitchen is well-equipped with Miele convection oven, stainless steel appliances, wine refrigerator, and refrigerated drawers. At the top of the stairs, the landing overlooks the great room, and leads to the second floor bedroom suite. The best finishes were used in the renovation to include solid oak doors, bronze hardware, and large divided-light windows and doors, connecting the interior space to the outside. The carriage garage is finished with a combination gym, recreation room, on the ground level, and a finished second story that is used for an office and en suite guest accommodations. The mountains are the backdrop for the spectacular Gunite infinity pool with platform steps and jacuzzi, fire pit, and tiered-decking for outdoor entertainment. In need of restoration, a Mid-Mod cabin, hidden in the woods, would make a great artist or writing studio. This alluring private retreat has easy access to the Taconic State Parkway, and is located 8 miles from the village of Rhinebeck.
