Just 65 miles from New York City, a cozy, artful three-bedroom home on five acres along a babbling brook. Only minutes away from Storm King Arts Center, Woodbury Commons, West Point, Black Rock Forest Preserve, the Body Art Yoga Barn, Blooming Hill Farm, Brotherhood Winery and Round Hill.
With floor to ceiling windows looking out in to the woods from the living room, there's a sense of being right in the middle of nature from morning to sunset.
The house, decorated with contemporary art and family antiques, is both a great place to connect to friends and family and a quiet, secluded space to sit by the fire, read, rest, cook, work. There is no TV in the house but there's WIFI.
House rules are pretty simple: no smoking, no pets and no parties. Check in is 4PM. Check out is 11AM.
You'll feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city---but without having schlepped very far at all. And, should you get bored, you're only a handful of miles from incredible excursions including the world renown Storm King Arts Center, a beautiful Saturday afternoon brunch and farmer's market at Blooming Hill Farm, premiere outlet shopping at Woodbury Commons, the Body Art Yoga Barn, hiking at Black Rock Forest Preserve, cycling and more. Nearby destinations include Bear Mountain, the quirky arts village Sugar Loaf, and the town of Beacon, known for its DIA art museum, natural beauty and hipster upscale boutiques.
The house has three bedrooms---two have a queen size bed, and one has a trundle bed with two twins. We also have a new queen size air mattress, a pack n play and a mini crib. There are two large living rooms---one upstairs by the fire, and one downstairs, with a lounge area and work desk.
There are chairs by the creek for creek watching. Deer, birds and squirrels roam.
Several hundred books live here across many genres including fiction, nonfiction, poetry and essays. There's also a basket of old New Yorkers.
A child-friendly house, we have a large collection of children's books and toys.
For guests I leave the house open with keys on the kitchen table and am available by phone any time to answer questions.
