Ashokan Reservoir Renaissance -- What was once a rustic mountain cabin with a fieldstone fireplace has become an artisan owner's piece de resistance. Now the villa matches the view. And what a view it is! Perched high above the Ashokan Reservoir, framed by the Shawangunk and Catskill Mountain ranges, witness the wonder of the changing light and season every minute of every day. Extensive decking, tiered bluestone patios and terraced gardens flow from home to hillside with a timeless feeling that was meant to be. Keep the small dipping pool on one escarpment or replace it with your hot tub. Inside, every room is oriented to take full advantage of the south-facing panorama. The hand-tiled gourmet kitchen with walk-in pantry and breakfast bar island is open to the original fireplace living room and dining area. A freestanding wood stove offers an alternative quality of heat. This level also has a guest bedroom, full bath, laundry/utility room and spacious media/music/ family room. Ascend the west-wing stairs to one of two spectacular 2nd story bedroom wings, one en suite, each with its own walk-out balcony with that infinity view. No wonder Van Morrison wrote "Moondance" while living on Spencer Road! An inlaid landing at the top of the east-wing stairway has a reading nook with a built-in cushioned bench and bookcase. Library ladders lead to cozy loft nooks. Discover other arts & crafts details created by an ongoing collaboration of Woodstock master craftspeople. Few homes will make you feel this at home. Only one has this view. A 430 sq ft pole barn provides storage and work space. There's a chicken coop. If you can tear yourself away from this stunning property you are near everything. The center of Woodstock is 5 minutes away; Kingston and Phoenicia are 15. Choose between entry points to our region's newest recreational resource, the Ashokan Rail Trail. Accessible to all the natural beauty, hiking, biking, skiing, fishing, music, arts and cuisine that have deservedly made the Hudson Valley Catskill Mountain region the place you want to be.
