Property description

Relax in the Shawangunk Mountains! This house is newly renovated and ready for you to enjoy. Have coffee in the morning sun on the back patio, then take a stroll through through the gorgeous Cragsmoor Historic District to admire all the fabulous houses that make this mountaintop hamlet so unique.

With the Stone Church down the road, Sam's Point Preserve up the road and Bear Hill Preserve around the corner, there are so many destination options to choose from within walking distance. A short drive will bring you to the State forest, excellent golf courses, hang-gliding, sky-diving, rock climbing, antiquing and farmers markets where you can pick up fresh, locally grown produce for your evening meal!

Nestled in the Shawangunk Mountains, this house has been a destination spot for those escaping the fast pace of the outside world since the turn of the last century, when its first artist owners converted this mountaintop structure into a quaint retreat that we recently upgraded with modern amenities for you to enjoy today!

The house has five bedrooms. The first floor bedroom has a queen sized bed. Upstairs there are four more bedrooms, one with a full sized beds, one with bunk beds, one with a full size bed and a twin bed, and the fourth bedroom has a king size bed. There are mountain views from most of the rooms. There is a large, modern eat-in kitchen with a bay window keeping it bright and light filled as well as a sofa for relaxing while sipping coffee and wine as meals are prepared. The living room is large, well appointed and has a talavera tiled wood burning fireplace.

The kitchen is totally remodeled and includes a huge center island, euro style appliances, farmhouse sink and green stone countertops The bathroom has a deep soaking tub.
