7 Woodstock Ridge, Woodstock
Asking Price: $750,000
Size: 2,936 sq ft
Year Built: 2001
Acreage: 2 acres
School District: Saugerties
The architecturally battened front door is the first hint of this home’s eclectic beauty. This 2,936 sq ft post-and-beam home has 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, and sits on two acres in a woodsy enclave only five minutes from shopping and restaurants.
Inside, you’ll find a great room with 20’ ceilings and a large fireplace. An open floor plan includes a dining room and second living room. The kitchen gleams with stainless-steel appliances that contrast nicely with green marble counters and locally custom-built cabinetry that complement the open-rafter feel of the house.
A main-floor master suite also has vaulted ceilings. A large dressing area and two walk-in closets mean a couple won’t get in each other’s way; a marble bathroom with Jacuzzi and skylights are for those times they don’t mind a little togetherness.
There’s a second main-floor bedroom and bath as well; upstairs are two more bedrooms and a bath. Fun awaits outdoors with an in-ground pool and tree house, and there’s a bonus game room above the garage for rainy-day fun.
325 Abbey Road, Mount Tremper
Asking Price: $765,000
Size: 2,950 sq ft
Year Built: 1985
Acreage: 5.78 acres
School District: Onteora
This home is a jewel in a superior setting. Drive over a little bridge onto 5+ acres of property that backs up to state land. Nicely landscaped, the acreage encompasses woodlands, lawn, gardens, a waterfall, and a swimming pond for warm-weather fun.
But the best awaits as you enter the 2,950 sq ft, 3-bedroom, 3-bath home, which was featured on the 2017 summer Byrdcliffe House Tour. Vaulted ceilings and lots of windows lend an airy feel, while two stone fireplaces cozy up the living room and the family room. Tile and hardwood rule the floors here, all the way into the country kitchen with butcher block and Silestone counters, a deep farmhouse sink, and cherry cabinets.
The main-level master suite is a Zen getaway, with a meticulously designed closet, radiant-heat master bath with steam shower and a Jacuzzi tub, and access to the huge deck, hot tub, and outdoor shower that overlook the pond and gardens.
Two upstairs bedrooms each have stained-glass windows, and share a full bath. Above them, on a third level, are two more private spaces for meditation, yoga, or a home office.
