Would You Choose Mountainview Living or Lakefront Luxury?
These two homes are each about two hours from NYC — and offer different, though equally luxurious, views.
201 Poplar Hill Rd, Wassaic
|Lot Size (Acres)||12|
This builder-owned Colonial mixes fine detail with stunning mountain views. The two-story foyer offers a grand entrance, while a formal living room and formal dining room are great for entertaining. The eat-in kitchen has granite countertops and backsplashes, double wall ovens, a convenient island, and a breakfast bar.
The open-concept layout flows from the kitchen to an impressive great room. High ceilings with skylights brighten the space, while a stone fireplace is conveniently gas-lit. French doors lead from the great room out to a new 40 ft deck with a gazebo, pool, and hot tub.
Upstairs, the master suite has double walk-in closets; the master bath includes a Jacuzzi and separate shower. Three other bedrooms share a hall bath. A three-car attached garage has bonus space above for guests, in-laws, or an au pair. If you still need to spread out, there’s an unfinished basement and an attic, too.
22 Manchester Rd, Rock Hill
|Lot Size (Acres)||.35|
Be “on vacation” year-round in this open-concept log cabin on Treasure Lake in the southwestern Sullivan County Catskills. It’s loaded with charming details, like a Dutch door with wrought-iron hardware, and timber-and-stone pillars on the front terrace. The great room has a cathedral ceiling, a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, and double sets of French doors that lead to a deck (with unique carved metal panels) overlooking the lake. A loft area overlooking the great room offers a den or office space.
You won’t suffer from a lack of things to do here. Watch bald eagles soar overhead. Grab a fishing pole and try your luck in the lake, or go ice-fishing when it’s cold. If you yearn for social connections, you’re in luck: This cabin is located in Emerald Green, a 1,400-acre community with more than 330 acres of common grounds including pools, athletic courts, a playground, and a club house.
