Property description

Enjoy a private getaway atop a hill under the beautiful Shawangunk cliffs (the Gunks!). While many outdoor adventures, biking the carriage roads, climbing the cliffs, hiking through the Mohonk Preserve, are only a mile or two away, you also have a vast array of 'toys' and things to do without ever leaving the property !. Enjoy a game of lawn chess or relaxing bocce ball/horseshoes. Have the kids build their own mini golf course with the movable obstacles or spend some of that extra energy in your own batting cage with a pitching machine ready to challenge you. Perhaps you want to take a leisurely swim in the endless pool or train for the upcoming triathlon with a mile long swim! As a labor of love, i have just completed a separate summer house with an outdoor kitchen which is just perfect for on-deck grilling, entertaining or as a teenager's den.

The home sleeps seven comfortably in the main house with a king bed in the master bedroom, a queen bed available in two additional bedrooms and a twin daybed in the den. The summer house has a full-size futon which could accommodate a further two more people.

I put considerable time and energy providing a safe and fun-filled environment for my son and his friends.

My goal is that everyone will enjoy my 'home in the hills' so much that they will want to come back year after year. I have also hired a superintendent, Mark who is local and helped me build the home. He is on call 24/7 if there are any issues with the house or if you need help on explaining how everything works.

Please note:
The batting cage is closed from October 31 - March 31 for winter safety reasons.

The endless pool is closed from December 1 - March 31 as it is located in th "Summer House" which is not heated.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I bought this home in 2001 as an avid rock climber living in Manhattan. Fast forward a decade and I now live in Connecticut with my 10 year old. I rennovated the house for us to make the most of with our friends, but with the baseball season, soccer, friends and a boat.... There are weeks in the summer where it is available for others to enjoy !

Why the Owner Chose New Paltz, NY, USA:
This property was bought to be our home and a get away for kids and adults! I fell in love with the view and the proximity to the cliffs. Many times I have walked to the base of the cliffs from my home to go rock climbing. For many years, this home was the hub to many friends and climbers. This is definitely the place for discerning, active groups. There is so much to do here that a week will never feel like enough and the house is well kitted out with all the modern amenities and fittings you would expect and has a very relaxing, homely feel to it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The New Paltz / Hudson Valley area is absolutely beautiful and an outdoor enthusiast's playground! I've wanted to create a place where kids could wake up and spend their energy outdoors while the adults were leisurely making their coffee. There are many areas for families to gather or for adults and children to separate. There are three outdoor seating areas: One by the batting cage to watch the batters try their hand at hitting. A second patio near the bocce ball with a fire pit and the best view of the gunks around! A fantastic place for the adults! And a third - more private seating area off the outdoor kitchen. on the wooden deck facing the woods. The main home was just renovated to bring he view of the cliffs inside! All bathrooms have been updated as walk-in showers and I added an outdoor shower attached to the home to provide warm water too! The master bedroom has a king bed and an in-suite bathroom. The other side of the home has three bedrooms - two with queen beds and one with a twin daybed. There are two open living areas each with it's own fireplace - one has gas and the other is wood burning. There is also a separate summer house with a connected outdoor kitchen under a lean-to. This separate home has an additional 1200 sq feet divided into two areas. The main room is a large open room with plenty of dining and entertaining. The other room houses the endless pool - which will provide endless hours of entertain for adults and children alike! Since I have owned this home, I have had the same super work on all the jobs needed around the house. I have hired him to be available to you in case of any issues or emergencies. Have piece of mind that help is always around the corner.
