Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are artists in the field of film and theatre. After years of city living both in NYC and LA, we have finally realized our dream of buying a home in the country with a guest house for our large family and artist friends who want to retreat from their busy worlds to write, paint, rehearse new works or just enjoy the sights and rest.

Why the Owner Chose Saugerties:
We have been looking for the right place for five years and dreaming of the right place for many more. We knew we wanted an old stone house on enough acreage to feel away from it all but close enough to people so we wouldn't be isolated. Close enough to NYC but far away enough to be in the country. We wanted lots of old trees. And, if it wasn't too much to hope for, some water on the property too. When we saw the incredible BlueMountain House built in 1793 with it's sweet guest house, both newly renovated, it was love at first sight!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Both the main house and the guest house are beautifully and loving restored. The landscape design is very special, so natural and rustically sophisticated if that makes any sense! Our favorite thing is sitting outside with our morning coffee and watching the birds and the occasional chipmunk or deer forage nearby.
