Swimming pool is 20 yards long, ideal for laps and for children; it is heated, making it delightful starting in June and continuing several weeks past Labor Day. Sliding glass doors on upper and lower levels. Tennis court and large lawn area available for outdoor activities. The house is surrounded by woods, and you will discover a multitude of walking and hiking opportunities in the area, with the Taconic State Park and Catamount Ski (winter) / Catamount Aerial Adventure Park (summer) 5 minutes away.
