Property description

""The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hands of man." Looking for a Walden Pond escape? Travel up a winding secluded mountain road right inside the heart of the Catskill State Park and discover the healing power of Ravenscliff, a beautiful Zen like retreat nestled on more than 22 acres of deep forest. This gorgeous two story prow front log home offers dramatic ceiling to floor windows, sunken living room with 30 foot high cathedral ceilings, large timber beams, and a majestic stonework fireplace. Wood, limestone and slate floors throughout.

Beautiful front and back views feature mountain tops and rock outcroppings. Four unique bedrooms include two master bedrooms and 3 ½ bathrooms . All are tastefully designed to delight the senses and soothe the soul. Sleeps eleven people comfortably. Large open designer/gourmet kitchen with black granite counter tops has state of the art fixtures and stainless steel appliances. Large loft area, office, two car garage, and three outdoor decks complete the 3900 square foot home.

Enjoy the rich Hudson River heritage and discover the hidden waterfalls and abundant wildlife that are in the surrounding area. Quaint towns like Stone Ridge, Woodstock, High Falls [established in the 1600's] and Rhinebeck which offer shopping and great restaurants are just minutes away.

If you crave the arts and music, book an evening at the Bearsville Theater or attend a Midnight Ramble at the the private compound of the late, great, legendary Grammy winner Levon Helm [drummer with the “Band”] at one of the intimate yet rocking Saturday nights sessions in Woodstock. Hiking, fishing, skiing, snowboarding, tubing, boating available. Or simply enjoy that special peace and tranquility that only being surrounded by the rustic beauty of nature can provide. You will not want to leave.

Year Purchased: 2008

About: Marty was born in England and raised in Canada. I was born in NY and was a teacher in Ethiopia. We met in Miami and during our travels fell in love with the unique rustic beauty and strong spiritual aura of this special property. We built this log home from scratch and every inch of it was designed to be a pleasing, healing and functional retreat from the outside world. We love to see the wildlife that share this magical space with us, deer, foxes, black bears, flying squirrels, and birds, lots of birds. We also love music and have small percussion instruments along with bongos and a full drum set for our guests to enjoy. The large loft space is perfect for meditation, dance and/or yoga exercises. We have created the best and we aim to rent to the best-conscious, responsible, creative, spiritual people who appreciate nature, art, music, quality and a beautiful home. They will find a loving, peaceful space to replenish their spirit and take care of this home as if it were their own special Shrangri-La.

Why Olivebridge, NY, USA:
Ulster County is listed in the book, "1000 Places To See Before You Die". We believe it is one of the most picturesque places we have traveled to, rural yet sophisticated, peaceful yet interesting, authentic and historic. I love the independent thinkers and creative people who are drawn here. Willem Dafoe, Uma Thurman, Rachel Weisz, Robert Deniro, David Bowie, and Levon Helms [to name just a few] all currently live in the area. It is just a very cool place with a very interesting history and tons of marvelous things to do.
