Woodstock house description

NOTE: Before emailing us about Pinecroft, please, please, please do check the Calendar tab to see if the house is already booked for the period you are interested in! And if you find it is indeed booked, please do NOT email us but keep looking. That will save our time and your time too.

At Pinecroft, our playful name for this modern, quietly comfortable home, you’ll enjoy eight wooded acres at the end of a private road, with an easy-living interior touched by an Arts & Crafts influence. This serene privacy is only a dozen minutes by car from downtown Woodstock and a bounty of arts, crafts, theater, dining, golf, shopping, fishing, hiking, and strolling.

Our east-of-town location also makes for quick access by car to antiques and dining in Saugerties, historic waterfront in Kingston, and other popular Catskills destinations on both sides of the Hudson River. And on hot summer days when a swim appeals more than sight-seeing, we’re a short car ride away from two prime dipping places: The Big Deep, the biggest and best swimming hole in Woodstock, and Lake Onteora, ideal for not only swims but picnics and kayaking too.

Or you can just chill out at Pinecroft itself, enjoying the breeze on our screened sunporch, a ramble in our private woods, or (if it’s rainy) a book from our private library. Or play music or movies on the high-definition, surround-sound entertainment system.

Amenities include a big, well-equipped kitchen and dining area, extra guest room with fold-out Murphy bed, and laundry room. Writers or illustrators or anyone wanting time alone to write or create will be drawn to the separate upstairs workroom, with a large, handcrafted writing desk overlooking a view of the woods, and a drafting table for drawing or watercolors. (No oils or acrylics, please!).

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: My partner Randy and I are both writers, and in the summers we live at the historic Byrdcliffe Art Colony in Woodstock, where for 18 years I directed a summer-long residence program for visual artists, playwrights, and fiction and nonfiction writers. Randy writes and edits nonfiction, and I’m a visual artist and playwright who has had productions in London, Paris, Berlin, Los Angeles, Westport, and other locales. The name for our house, “Pinecroft,” comes from a screenplay I’m working on, a comedy-mystery set in a haunted art colony.

                  Why the Owner Chose Woodstock:
                  Woodstock offers a rare mix of a vibrant art community set in a beautiful mountain landscape. My father had a house here, and I worked at Byrdcliffe for many years, so I have a deep connection to the area. We wanted a second home here. We'd looked at houses in the area for over two years; we loved the feel of this house - a secluded home we could decorate in an Arts & Crafts manner, at the end of a quiet road, yet close not only to Woodstock, but Saugerties, Kingston, and other interesting Catskills towns and cities.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The house is only 20 years old and unusually well-built. From the outside it looks modestly homey; inside, it's full of thoughtful details that make it both livable and lovable. The main living area features an open plan, complete with picture windows and a sunroom that look out on a backyard full of flowerbeds, ferns, and the woods beyond. Another feature that attracted us was the lovely, custom-made cabinetry and shelves in the kitchen and living room. The original owner was a dairy farmer before he retired, and his son, now a cabinet-maker for expensive Manhattan clients, did some of his first work here, with dark, smooth-grained hardwoods culled from trees on his father’s farm. I love to cook, and the kitchen is spacious and sunny, with a center island and big counters. The sun room and windows flood the house with light; the bathrooms are roomy and have double sinks; and there are lots of closets, too. All in all, it's a clean, comfortable, house in a wooded setting with lots of privacy. Quite simply, we bought Pinecroft because we knew it would be a welcoming home for ourselves and for guests.
