About Welcome to the Pinnacle of Architectural Brilliance

Welcome to the pinnacle of architectural brilliance, contemporary luxury and total privacy that is A House in the Woods. A captivating fusion of cutting-edge design and unrivaled sophistication, this architectural marvel redefines the boundaries of modern country living, seamlessly blending sleek aesthetics with advanced technological integration that allows form to meet function and innovation to intertwine with elegance. Sited on 8.49 boulder-strewn acres, with no neighbors in sight, this home abuts the 2,500-acre Awosting Reserve, which virtually assures that nature will be at your doorstep for decades to come. The home is reached from a dead-end street and a stone-filled drive that winds pass a 25-ft-high, show-stopping, undulating Cor-Ten steel wall.

Be greeted by natural light streaming through 15-ft floor-to-ceiling windows. Designed by award-winning architect William Reue to the exacting specifications of the current owner, every aspect of this home has been meticulously crafted. This net-zero, LEED Silver-certified, all-electric home features quadruple-pane windows and 74 roof-mounted solar panels with microinverters. There is radiant-heat flooring throughout, an Aprilaire 8100 energy recovery ventilator, and a direct-exchange geothermal heating and cooling system. Smart-home automations include wi-fi connected thermostats and Nest security cameras.

An expansive and open-concept gourmet kitchen, living and dining areas, custom-designed cabinetry and top-grade appliances, honed Caesarstone countertops, a Scandanavian-style sauna, a two-car garage (with a 40-amp ChargePoint EV charger) and a basement exercise room complete the picture. The guest wing contains all three guest bedrooms, each of which features an en suite bathroom. The main guest bathroom features a bathtub that faces a floor-ceiling-window. There is also a sitting room with a queen-sized Murphy bed and kitchenette containing a refrigerator, sink, and electric cooktop. Finally, there is a walk-in closet containing a large-capacity LG washer and dryer set, as well as storage space for linens.

A mere 2 hours from Midtown Manhattan, 20 minutes from Minnewaska State Park Preserve and the famed Gunks, 30 minutes to New Paltz and bus service to Manhattan, and 40 minutes to Poughkeepsie and the Metro-North/Amtrak station, this home represents the epitome of contemporary luxury that effortlessly combines unparalleled style, technological innovation, and architectural excellence.
