Ancram estate description

This luxury log cabin estate offers gracious accommodations and impeccable comfort yet bears an intimate atmosphere and plenty of space for family and guests.

Built in 2005 and designed to feel like a modern rustic log cabin, this lovely country Guest House boasts panoramic views of the Catskills and Berkshire Mountains, with all the comforts of a luxury retreat. Equipped with superb insulation and HVAC, it is a year-round getaway.

Exposed oak, beautiful slate floors, a breathtaking floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, and cathedral ceilings throughout give this home its immense charm. Picture windows in the living/dining room allow for fabulous views to and across the pond.

An entertainer’s delight, the gourmet kitchen comes fully equipped with professional Viking appliances: stove, refrigerator and double oven where chefs and bakers alike will feel right at home. Boasting slate tiled floors and a dining table for 12, the home also offers a private terrace to sooth away your cares.

For any season of the year, this inviting cabin offers an ideal place to relax, recharge and indulge in the magic of nature …

Cuddle up with a book by the fireplace in winter while glancing out at the gleaming white panorama; witness the blossoming splendor of spring while exploring pond and river as the eagles soar above; enjoy a picnic, take a stroll across the grassland and sunbathe by the pond during summer while being entertained by jumping trout; experience the grace of fall with a hike through the trails, witness the beauty of migrating geese across the pond and the ever-changing foliage.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      Why the Owner Chose Ancram:
                      Relaxing escape perfect for anyone from NYC, CT and Boston. The natural beauty of the Hudson Valley has earned the Hudson River the nickname 'America's Rhine.' The Hudson Valley also was the location of the estates of many wealthy New York industrialists, such as John D. Rockefeller and Frederick William Vanderbilt, and of old-moneyed tycoons such as Franklin Roosevelt, who was a descendant of one of the early Dutch families in the region.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                      This is an exquisite property with expansive acreage that boasts graceful, private, pastoral views from all directions.
