Property description

Just 5 miles to Woodstock and Saugerties and situated on 7 very private acres on a 14 acre lake, with glorious mountain views. It is secluded, but easily accessible, peaceful, quiet and beautifully landscaped. Everyone who comes, finds it to be a paradise and much more than the photos indicated. The 1000 sf. duplex is clean and tastefully furnished. As you enter your own private entrance into the great room, with 20' ceiling, you will find a very comfortable, spacious seating area looking out to an intimate Japanese Garden. There is a separate dining area and fully equipped kitchen. Upstairs is a large bedroom with a queen size bed and stocked with fine linens. The second bedroom has a double bed and large skylight and a contemporary tiled, skylit bathroom with luxurious Egyptian towels. This duplex is attached to an H shaped home owned by the artist in residence. She built this amazing home and has improved on it for 40 plus years now. The setting is truly park like and serene. Nice pool to lounge beside or two different screened in areas to sit. Real nice views of the Catskill mountains, especially Overlook. Great place for a 1/2 day hike by the way! Take the canoe out on the lake and experience it's beauty. Sit on the chairs lake side and just chill. If you ever feel like leaving this property you'll find the local villages of Woodstock and Saugerties to be very special. Lots of small shops to browse thru, incredible restaurants to try out. The Hudson River is nearby as are trains to NYC. Skiing can be found at several local mtns and golf courses are abundant. We've got miles of rail trails to hike or bike. HITS is nearby and really something to see in the summer/fall months. The fall colors here will blow your mind. This area is truly a four season get away and this property is very special! You will also get to meet the German Shepherd, Enya, who is very friendly and two Siamese cats!
