About the Property
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)
The original cottage named 'The Doll House' was razed in 2007 and a new Craftsman type Bungalow was constructed in 2009. The new home consists of 2200 square feet containing a gourmet kitchen, and ample closet space on all floors.The views from almost everywhere in this home, designed by a popular local architect, are spectacular and the room planning was well conceived...there is even a nice, bright laundry room in the basement with stereo speakers . .... And a spot to place the ironing board upright and leave it that way if you care to! There is an extra 'bonus' area in the basement available for an additional rental charge. Sofa bed, loveseat, plus a lovely 3/4 bathroom, 4 large windows and separate entrance define this lower level.
The kitchen with great views of the lake, features the most up to date conveniences and generously sized peninsula with 2 stools for watching sailboats glide by during your lunch.
ATTENTION:SPECIAL ARRANGEMENT: ARE YOU TOO TIRED TO COOK AFTER HOURS OF SWIMMING AND/OR ANTIQUING? CHEF JERRY MOHR A DEGREED FRENCH CHEF CAN COME TO THE DOLL HOUSE AND PREPARE ANY (OR ALL!) MEALS FOR YOU! or WE CAN MAKE ARRANGEMENTS FOR YOU TO ATTTEND HIS MANY AND VARIED SCHEDULED, PUBLIC COURSES. THESE CLASSES ARE ENJOYED IN HIS HISTORIC REVOLUTIONARY HOME IN MALDEN BRIDGE.
There is a large desk area in the kitchen to work on your computer away from the activity of the rest of the house, but within view of a small TV and that lovely North end lake view again. The Guest Bedroom on this floor, with Queen bed and on-wall flat panel TV is 12+ by 12 feet with an ample closet and views of the back field and birch tree behind the house. The full bathroom across the hall features a window, pedestal sink, and full sized bathtub/shower combination. These 2 rooms are located off the entrance hallway and with the glass pocket door at the end of this hallway closed, it will afford complete privacy for the sleepyheads on this main floor. The living room commands panoramic views of the North to South orientation of the lake which my returning clients have come to know and love. Now that view however, has been enlarged and improved with an Andersen Frenchwood Glider extending 12 feet across the West elevation with help from additional fixed doors. Turning the corner towards the North elevation are 3 very large windows. At the opposite end there is a wall of stone punctuated by a propane fueled fireplace and 2 small windows. All windows in the house are able to be covered using fashionable Bali top down/bottom up cellular shades and in the Living Room the expansive 'wall of glass' can become a warm, cozy place by closing the floor to ceiling Bali 'Vertiglides' provided.Most windows are also covered by a second window treatment to add to the warmth and character of the home.
Upstairs you will find a comfortable Library with built-in bookshelves and a private entrance into the shared Master Bath. The Master Bath has a separate frameless stall shower and views of the lake that will encourage you to linger, along with a large soaking tub. The adjoining Master Bedroom contains his and hers 6 foot closets with an electric fireplace in between! The Master, measuring 15'5' by almost 14 overlooks the entire lake with 3 large windows including a Palladian in the center. One more small room upstairs is a sitting room facing south which could serve as a third bedroom when/if necessary. Otherwise it will make for a quiet retreat to read or take a much needed nap in the ample leather recliner.
There is a gorgeous stone patio with dining table and chairs directly off the Living Room that overlooks the lake. Stairs that lead down to the water's edge take you to a deck where there is additional furniture for swimming,relaxation and lake enjoyment.
Close proximity to Tanglewood; Saratoga; SPAC; Hunter Mountain, Brody, Jimmney Peak; Lenox and Lee, Mass clothing outlets; Catskill Mountains attractions, many summer stock theaters and Lake George. You can visit President Martin Van Buren's house and Norman Rockwell's Museum in the same day, return to the lake, enjoy a cookout and one of the most beautiful sunsets ever! Only 2 hours 20 minutes north of New York City.
