Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I have had several successful careers before returning to Woodstock, my childhood home. After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, I worked as a painter and print-maker for several years. As a lark I became a fashion model, traveling world-wide for a few years, before transitioning to the other side of the camera. As a photographer I continued traveling the world, based in London and later in New York City. I was known for my dark fashion vision, innovative advertising campaigns, and for my unusual portraits of celebrities.
I then moved back to Woodstock and began a succession of house purchases; turning “sows ears into silk purses,” so to speak. I would take on vagrant and languishing buildings that “spoke to me,” and, as contractor, worked side by side with carpenters, plumbers, and electricians, learning hands-on the basics of house building. Several houses later I decided to get my real estate license. I live and work in Woodstock New York with my husband and a houseful of puppies.
Why the Owner Chose Woodstock: We fell in love with the charm of this property, its setting really cannot be beat. Close to town and yet really feeling utter country, and private too. The house has a functionality to it that belies its modest size, and it is great for larger groups as much as for a couple looking for a romantic getaway. With the pool, screened porch, stone patio, meandering paths, stream... the place is really quite enchanting.
The Unique Benefits at this House: open plan kitchen dining and living with fireplace... great for a group being truly together while in various rooms, and yet the bedrooms are tucked away nicely for quiet time. Walk to restaurants and cub deli from the house, and walk to the gloriously beautiful Cooper Lake from the house.... both wonderful outings.
