Saratoga Springs house description

Our home overlooks Putnam Brook, which cuts a deep gorge in a wooded plateau through our property before continuing to Saratoga State Park. The property is a 10-acre oasis of wilderness turned into a private park, including a secluded picnic area on the river bank with a fire pit and a cantilevered deck overlooking the valley. You will share the property with birds, deer, wild turkeys, and turtles, which are often seen along the picturesque nature trail.

The house, owned by a European interior designer and her writer husband, combines beauty with comfort. It's filled with original artwork and a mixture of antique and modern furniture, and offers views of nature from its huge windows. It's warmed by a fireplace and cooled by central air system.

Enjoy your morning coffee in the fresh air on the wraparound deck and patio. Fantastic views of the lawn and woods can also be enjoyed from the two balconies attached to the bedrooms on the second floor.

The house has spacious living room, dining room, and gourmet kitchen fit for entertainment. If you'd rather not entertain, you can relax in the library. It's separated from the hallway by a glass pocket door and filled with books and has a glass outer façade looking out at the brook, providing the perfect spot for meditation.

The home's focal point is the living room. It is a place of comfort and casual elegance, with hardwood flooring, Persian rugs, European antique furniture and comfortable sofas, accented with original paintings of race horses and ballerinas. The cathedral ceiling adds to the grandeur.

The dining room is separated from the living room by two columns and opens to the southern deck through a sliding glass door. The large table is perfect for an elegant dinner party.

Independent Apartment: There is a wholly independent modern apartment at the underground level (with 1 bedroom, kitchen and a full bath).

This is the perfect house in perfect surroundings! To celebrate your find, toast chilled Champagne in the outside hot tub!
