This spectacular Woodstock estate home is ideal for family or group vacations or retreats. PLEASE NOTE that out of consideration for our neighbors we are no longer accepting bookings for events and insist that groups must keep outdoor noise to reasonable levels.
The 6,000+ square foot contemporary house has six bedrooms each with its own full bath; an indoor pool; a fully-equipped gym atrium with sauna, steambath, and hottub; huge gourmet kitchen and dining room with comfortable seating for twelve; and many other amenities.
The house lies at the end of a long private drive on 25 acres, including a 1/2 mile stretch of the Sawkill Stream. The landscaped area features a 1/4 acre pond, large lawn, flagstone patio and barbecue area, tire swing, fruit trees, and a berry garden. The town of Woodstock is 15 minutes walking distance away.
The master bedroom suite on the main floor has a king-sized bed, stone gas-log fireplace, sitting area, cable television, and a window seat overlooking the pond. Across the hall is another large bedroom with king-sized bed and television. The upstairs level has four more large bedrooms, one with a queen bed, another with a full bed. The other two bedrooms each have a pair of twin beds and their own balconies.
The house is essentially a fully-equipped luxury spa. Off the main level is an atrium with an heated saline indoor lap pool (15'x40'), with an automatic retractable pool cover that keeps the room safe and dry. The atrium also has a full seating area, ping-pong table, and wood-burning stove.
At the rear of the house is another glass atrium with two levels. The main level holds a hot tub large enough to fit 8 adults. The upper level has a full gym, with treadmill, elliptical, exercise bike, rowing machine, and weights, as well as another television. The gym also has its own full bathroom with a sauna and steam shower.
The main entertaining area includes a sunken living room with another stone gas-log fireplace; a family room with large television and traditional games; a dining area with a farm table that comfortably seats 12 adults; and a sun room that is our favorite room in the house.
The dining area is next to a gourmet kitchen perfect for large-scale entertaining. There is a Viking gas cooktop with six burners and a grill, a double electric oven, three dishwashers, and two Sub-Zero refrigerator freezers with icemakers, chilled drink drawers -- as well as the three sinks, microwave oven, and a vast array of cooking equipment.
A Sonos wireless system provides music in the living room, pool atrium, and on outdoor speakers. As noted above, outdoor music must be kept to reasonable levels and turned off by 9:00 pm. Three wireless routers provide high-speed internet throughout the house as well.
The house is owned, and frequently used, by a family in Westchester, NY. Our amazing caretaker Tracy acts as a virtual concierge available to respond to any problems. As the owners have dogs and cats, we would not recommend the house to anyone with serious allergies; on the other hand, renters are welcome to bring dogs, who will have a great time.
PLEASE NOTE: NO SMOKING ALLOWED (INDOORS OR OUTSIDE), AND NOISE LEVELS MUST BE KEPT REASONABLE IN DEFERENCE TO OUR NEIGHBORS. The house feels secluded on 25 acres but we are in a hollow and noise travels remarkably far.
