Woodstock house description

Our beautiful Shady Home is now available for vacation rentals- A recently remodeled 2 story home on 1.25 acres, it is located just 5 miles from Woodstock on a dead end lane, very private yet minutes to town. The in ground pool is open and maintained from Memorial Day Weekend through September 15. This home has been in our family for over 50 years and has been carefully and lovingly furnished and equipped for children and grandchildren. Some of the owner's antique family furniture and art works are displayed and used, but it is a comfortable home. In the last 5 years, the owners have built a new kitchen and dining addition and renovated the 2nd floor, to 3 bedrooms and a new bathroom, with tub/shower. All new appliances. In summer, 2009, a new sun porch was built outside living room. Check availability calendar.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1962

              About the owner: My husband and I bought Our Shady Home in 1962 when our boys were 3 and 1- Our daughter, Julie arrived in 1967- We lived in New York City and spent many weekends and most summers in Our Shady Home- Today, I am a widow, live in North Carolina and travel to California and England frequently.- My California home recently designed by Julie's husband, Richard Baker, is also available for short term rentals. I love renting out my home- I have talked and met some very interesting people-

              Why the Owner Chose Woodstock:
              In 1963, before we bought Our Shady Home, we looked in a 150 mile radius of NYC- we both knew Woodstock and when we saw this home, we felt it was for us- My husband always said he bought it for the view, while I bought it for the convenience of a bedroom and bath on the 1st floor- Woodstock has always offered an interesting combination of art, music, theater and good restaurants, as well as a fascinating array of shops.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              I feel born again after I spent time here-
