You may have to pinch yourself back into reality as you make your way through the woods down a quiet, country road to this special property, just so you dont mindlessly miss the turn. Its easy to get lost in the beauty of this area. What feels like a road at the entrance to one of New Yorks beautiful state parks, just happens to be almost exactly that; It is a state maintained road that dead-ends at the gate to the driveway leading you, instead, to one of the most private and serene properties I have ever come across. The large, 46 acre lot is surrounded by protected NY state land so it feels more like thousands of acres of privacy. You may have had a conversation at one point with friends or family daydreaming about someday owning your own property where you could live together but have your own separate spaces, maybe share a community garden or get together for big bonfires. Well, this is your chance to make that dream come to fruition. The first of TWO homes on this property boasts of beautiful wood craftsmanship that can be seen in the hand-hewn beams and design aspects throughout. A loft space above the bedrooms provides an area to snuggle up with a good book or the perfect spot to win an epic game of hide and seek. A cozy woodstove warms you in the winter and with the massive deck outside, you will be able to host all your friends and family in the summer and live that outdoor life weve all come to value now more than ever. Around the front of the home, take the stairs up to the one bedroom accessory apartment. Enjoy your morning coffee from the large balcony looking out onto the property and in the distance, you will see the chimney still standing where the original house once stood many years ago. The previous tenant of the apartment was a master woodworker who added many beautiful touches as you will see in the cabinets and countertops. Heading to the second of the two homes on the property, you will follow an enchanting tree-lined path that feels more like a greenery version of one of the famous covered bridges in Madison County. As you get closer, the land opens up to an adorable one bedroom, cedar sided cottage overlooking a small meadow. With the removal of a few trees you will have views of the Shawangunk mountains in the distance. Inside the cottage, relax on the couch while you look out onto the yard through the large picture window in the living room as the fireplace keeps the home nice and toasty. When its time to turn-in, take the spiral staircase up to the spacious bedroom. So much space that one might think about turning it into two bedrooms or possibly adding another bathroom. The home is flanked by a huge screened-in porch and deck almost the same size as the house with two built-in benches that fold out to create the most magical summer napping spot you could imagine. If you feel like exploring, follow the old rock wall down to the Trout Creek that weaves in and out between your property and the state land surrounding it.
