About the Property

Four Bedrooms, Two Full Baths, Geothermal, Solar, 7' Cedar Hot Tub, Ultra Modern

As you drive back into the woods and first come across this beautiful home prepare to be awe-struck. I don't think you'll ever find another one quite like it. This is a virtually new home with all the bells and whistles. Winner of the 2009 American Institute of Architects design award, the house is very unique, very modern and very green. Known as a tree house, it has floor-to-ceiling glass and is 30' off the ground so you're in the tree canopy. This home is Net Zero and was built with very sustainable systems and practices that include Solar PV panels and geothermal heat pumps for heating via radiant polished concrete floors.

The house sits on a secluded 7+ acre lot with multiple streams. Luxury finishes including walk in glass shower with glass tiles and a 7' outdoor wood-fired cedar hot tub (only available May-Sept). Wide open floor plan that includes a chefs kitchen to drool over with an induction cook top and stainless steel appliances. Over 1,000 sq ft of decks surround the home. There's even a screened in solarium for out door dining. The house has 4 well appointed bedrooms and can sleep 6-8 comfortably. Physically located inside of the town of Woodstock on a road with hundreds of acres of state land nearby, including some serious mountain biking trails. We're right on the line with Saugerties and Kingston. In a few minutes you can be in eclectic little towns like Woodstock or Saugerties. So much fun to walk around there and window shop. You'll find so many fine restaurants and you just might see somebody quite famous. Skiing at Windham, Hunter or Bellayre is only 30 minutes away. This is a unique home combining the best aspects of modern amenities and country living.

Car: Necessary

We're located a few minutes from everything. You can get off at Exit 19 on the NYS Thruway (Kingston). We're only about 5 miles from the exit but it'll feel like a world away. From here one can easily explore Woodstock, Saugerties, Rhinebeck, Hudson, Kingston and all the mighty Catskill Mountains have to offer. You'll find endless trails to hike or mountain bike. We're very close to world class parks like Minnewaska and Mohonk. During the summer and fall we're very close to HITS events as well. The fall colors here will blow your mind as will the views from our trail peaks.

No pets and no smoking inside or out of the house.

There are security cameras in the house. They are used to confirm your arrival but are not used during your stay except in case of emergency.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Our house is a weekend family home we use as a get away from NYC. We built it so that one could experience the open spaces and appreciate our natural surroundings. This modern home won the 2010 AIA award for design. This tree top canopy home will make you feel like you just stepped into an issue of Dwell or Metropolis magazine!

Why the Owner Chose Kingston, NY, USA:
We found ourselves regularly coming to the Woodstock area in all 4 seasons. This area is full of natural, arts and cultural benefits and has such a great balance of sophistication without pretense. From the Woodstock art, movie and music festivals to the wonders of skiing or hiking in the Catskill Mountains to the HITS shows in Saugerties to the many NYC quality restaurants there is simply not another place like this.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
We built this house with a passion to realize our vision of an escape in a beautiful wooded setting while being responsible and respectful to the impact that new construction has on the environment. We used sustainable materials and systems that include solar, geo-thermal, triple pane glass and recycled timbers. We wanted light and great views so we built a huge wall of windows in the main room 30 feet up into the tree canopy. We love to cook and entertain and you'll find the kitchen to be top end and very convenient. The open plan main room allows us to be with our family and friends as we prepare those great meals. Extensive out door areas as well allow you to be one with nature at all hours of the day. We even screened in an outside eating/solarium area. We're located on 7 plus acres and your neighbors will be the wild life all around you.
