The Carriage House is a unique living space that was masterfully designed by the owner-architect to blend modern living with rustic/industrial features of the original barn-like structure. Rough hewn posts and beams, barn wood paneling and brick laid floors have been carefully preserved, while modern amenities such as spa-like bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, central AC, an in-ground heated pool and extensive gardens (including an organic veggie/herb "kitchen garden") have been added.
Prepare snacks and meals in your fully-equipped gourmet kitchen, which features all new Miele appliances ~ including a commercial-quality 5-burner cooktop and oven that are built into a butcher block island opposite a double sink surrounded by white corian countertops.
A second Miele steam oven is built into the wall, along with a convenient Miele coffee system for grinding beans and brewing coffee/espresso, steaming milk for lattes/cappuccinos, or heating water for tea ~ all with the push of a button!
Dishes and pantry items are neatly stored in a wall of cabinets behind floor-to ceiling white doors that keep the kitchen looking sparse and minimal, so that the focus remains on the unique and original architectural elements of the original structure.
The kitchen is open to the dining area, which features a long farm table (seats 6) under a cathedral ceiling with clerestory windows and a hanging chandelier. Two sets of French doors on either side of the dining area open onto the yard/garden on one side, and a summer sleeping/reading porch on the other.
At the far end of the great room there’s a cozy sitting area where you can relax in front of a gas-fueled fireplace surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows that wrap around the room and overlook the garden, yard and pool area. Snuggle by the fire and watch the snow fly in the winter, or open windows and enjoy fresh breezes and birdsong in the summer. A large flatscreen TV is mounted on the wall above the mantel for watching movies.
At the end of the day, climb the stairs to the second floor master bedroom suite (with an interior casement window that overlooks the great room below). The suite features a queen bed with luxury linens and a newly-remodeled bathroom with a jacuzzi tub/shower.
There are two more bedrooms on the first floor: a guest bedroom with a full-size platform bed, and a children’s bedroom with 2 twin beds. The twin bedroom was the original entrance to the carriage house, and features a 2-story north-light window, cathedral ceiling and original barn wood paneling.
A second bathroom on the first floor is also newly-remodeled with terra cotta tiles and an oversize glassed-in shower.
Other amenities include a laundry room with side-by-side front-loading washer/dryer and a full-size freezer.
The grounds surrounding the house are landscaped with lush perennial gardens and pathways that lead to the heated in-ground pool, outdoor sitting areas, and a year-round stream that flows through the back of the property. The land on the other side of the stream is undeveloped and protected conservation land.
Walk to the end of your driveway and shared private lane and you are just a few blocks from the center of Woodstock, where you’ll find restaurants, cafes, galleries, boutiques, theaters and clubs. Drive up into the surrounding mountains and explore an extensive network of hiking trails throughout the Catskill Mountain Park. Head east to the Hudson River valley and discover the cultural attractions of the historic river towns and estates. Or just stay home and relax in your own private Woodstock retreat, and enjoy its peace and beauty!
Well-behaved and crate-trained dogs are considered ~ please ask. Please note that a $75 pet fee per dog applies.
