Copake Falls chateau / country house description

This home, completely rebuilt in 2007, with no luxury spared, was designed for family fun. Located on 7 acres at the top of a private road it offers spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and room for everyone to relax and enjoy the breathtaking sunsets, especially as they are splashing around in the heated pool.

The main part of the house is an open concept kitchen and living room with a wood burning stone fireplace, flat screen TV and a fully stocked gourmet chefs kitchen with stainless steel appliances and plenty of granite counter space to create meals to remember. Off the kitchen area there is a dining room and a fully furnished screened-in porch with another eating area as well as a comfortable seating area. The sliding glass doors off the main room provide access to a full length view side deck with BBQ.

There is a master suite on the main floor. Which includes a private deck, a gas fireplace, walk-in closet and private dressing area. The luxurious marble master bathroom has double sinks and separate shower and bathtub.

Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Bedroom 1 has its own private bathroom with an automated skylight, and a spacious glass enclosed shower. This bedroom has a queen bed.
Bedroom 2 has 1 full and 2 twin size beds.
Bedroom 3 has a queen size bed.
The shared bathroom has 2 sinks and a bathtub/shower.

The lower level provides pool access through a glass sliding door and a single glass door. The main room has a big open entertainment space with comfy couches and chairs and 2 flat screen TVs. There is also a bedroom with a pool view and a queen size bed. The lower level bathroom has a glass enclosed shower.
There is also a sleeping alcove in the basement with a single bed and a trundle.

The heated, salt water pool was installed in 2010 and has an automated pool cover that closes in 30 seconds. The pool was newly landscaped in 2013 and now has an outdoor shower, true summer paradise.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: After spending a summer renting in nearby Hillsdale with another family, we loved the area so much that we decided to look for a place to buy. When we saw the views from this property, we knew we had found the perfect location. Since then our family has grown and the house has expanded. We spend every weekend and every school day off at the property enjoying all the nearby activities and always inviting others to join in our adventures. We have decided to rent the house for 2 months this summer because we have family events that will leave the house unused for the first part of the summer.

              Why the Owner Chose Copake Falls:
              Our families started visiting this area in 1980 and we have enjoyed its beauty, activities and culture through the years.

              The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
              This is the perfect place to experience a country summer. The house is designed to easily accommodate 2 or more families and with the pool and numerous nearby camps, it will be a summer everyone will remember.
