About

This small, charming cottage was built in the 1850's as part of a large farm. It sits on a half acre of land with several outbuildings and abuts a cool, rushing stream that come down from the Platt Clove in the mountain behind the property. It is about 8 miles from the center of Woodstock in one direction and 8 miles to the town of Saugerties in the other. The area is teeming with cultural activities of all sorts from dance to opera to film, scenic drives, hiking, swimming, horseback riding. The campus of Bard College is a 30-minute drive, and downtown Kingston--a mecca for Brooklyn escapees--is 20 minutes. The house itself has a kitchen/dining area and living room on the first floor and two bedrooms on the second floor. There are 1.5 baths. The basement has a washer and dryer. There's a 19th-Century stone smokehouse on the property, a patio and fire pit near the stream, and a small cabin with a cold-water sink (also right on the stream) that's ideal as a writing studio or guest room. There is also a completely private studio (with bath and kitchen) at garden level below garage. This is perfect for a writing retreat or guest quarters. The house is located on a dead-end street. There is a spectacular swimming hole a one-minute walk down the road with waterfall and crystal-clear water. The location is uniquely appealing and inspiring, offering country charm and quiet and quick access to an astonishing array of restaurants, cafes, music venues, yoga studios, and shops.
