Orange is the new black and French Country is the ‘new-again’ style choice for the coming decade.
This 2004 home has all the right parts in all the right places! Located in the Great Western Catskills half-way between Margaretville and Bovina, this 47-acre property adds grandeur to an already beautiful valley.
With PANORAMIC CATSKILL MOUNTAIN VIEWS, no matter the room you’re in – even standing at the enameled farm sink in the kitchen. DESIGNED FOR ENTERTAINING, the floor plan is the ideal 4-season VACATION spot, or even better full-time residence with single-floor living capability, plus room for guests, families, you name it.
The kitchen has GRANITE COUNTER-TOPS, and the convenience of a built-in isle for cutting and prep work, or just enjoying company with a glass of wine. The entire main living area is open – from the kitchen to the dining area to the living room and out on the deck – echoing the expanse of the mountain landscape. 4 double-glass doors open onto the deck offering near unobstructed consumption of that amazing view. In warmer months, open these doors and you’ll feel like the entire living/dining area is one giant entertainment space. When the temperature drops, you’ll appreciate the STACKED-STONE wood-burning fireplace rising to the full height of the soaring 30-foot CATHEDRAL CEILING in the living room. The 2nd floor catwalk expands your view of the western slopes – a framed portrait of these pastoral ancient slopes.
A stone entrance from the road leads to an arching driveway across the front of the 47+ acres, ending at a circular drive just steps from the front door of the home’s main level.
- FIRST FLOOR: 2 bedrooms on the main floor, each with their own bathrooms, and den, dining, kitchen, Living-room, laundry room and access to the 2-car garage (with 26×24 ft second floor – think 6th bedroom or office space!)
- SECOND FLOOR: 2 bedrooms on the 2nd floor, each with their own full bath. Grand balcony with mountain views.
- GROUND FLOOR: Expansive full-walkout ground floor with a 5th full bed room with kitchenette, family room with PROPANE-GAS-LOG FIREPLACE (with a thermostat), a walkout stone patio, a gorgeous full bath with HAND-MADE TILE, a SAUNA and gym room – this is more spa than a simple family room, (plus access to a large utility room and electrical room.)
Whether on the ground floor, main floor, or the second floor, you will find no area lacking. Attention to detail is in every corner of the home. Elegant tile. Hardwood floors. Top-of-the-line finishings. French country with contemporary luxury without the trans-Atlantic flight. Minutes from Margaretville, Bovina, and Andes, and 2.5 hours from the GWB.
