Very large master suite isolated from other two bedrooms and bath and walk-in bathtub. Fourth bedroom currently set up as den with a queen-size sofa bed. Wonderful open floor plan - great for entertaining. Terrific location - just minutes from Stone Ridge town and High Falls shopping, restaurants and historic sites. 1.5 hours from the GWB.
Recently, the New York Times real estate correspondent, Bethany Lyttle, saw my listing on VRBO and fell in love with it. We did an hour long interview and she sent a photographer that took a slew of pictures. You can search the article by googling CHIAPPARDI NY TIMES

I am a music business executive and live in Gramercy Park NYC. I recently married and I am now looking to start a family with my wife. First time marriage both of us. I have owned this house for almost 10 years. i fell in love with it the first time I saw it and bought it on the spot. Big floor to ceiling windows, constant sun in the back yard, 13 acres with a large stocked pond, and views of the Mohonk Mountain House and the the ridge it sits on. I used to get up there every weekend with my mom, dad, sister and her family, but now the kids are grown and my folks don't travel too much. I only getting up to the house every now and then. I have a caretaker that oversees the property that lives next door and keeps the place in tip top condition.
The street i live on falls within the Accord district, however the house is in the Stone Ridge/High Falls area. If you are familiar to this area you know what a beautiful hamlet it is, with luscious vistas, blue stone houses, quiet streets. The area attracts many artists and creative types, with a good contingency of independent actors and industry people in the area.
We have a number of cute restaurants 5 minutes away from the house in High Falls, including the 5 star Canal House. The video store, NYC style gourmet supermarket, drug store, chinese takeout and a great wine store are also 5 min away. 20 min North we have a large shopping mall, 12 movie cineplex, bowling, Sam's CLub, Walmart,and every other store imaginable.
Apple and pumpkin picking in the fall is always fun and the change of the foliage during the season is spectacular. A number of street fairs in the local towns are frequent with the Ulster County Fair a yearly highlight.
I bought my house because it is the perfect getaway. Trees surround the property so it is nice and quiet, a great contrast to NYC living. Lots of space both inside and outside in the yard. The Great Room is a wonderful place to entertain. The large fireplace fills the room with glow and warmth. The dining room table seats 12 or more so there is room for everyone. I love to sit in the great room and take in the views through the wall of windows that look into the Mohonk mountain range. Breathtaking!!!
I love that I can stay the entire weekend at the house and not feel compelled to leave. Between the pool and BBQ for entertaining, the pond to swim, fish or ice skate in the winter and the yard where we play volleyball, bacci, croquet, there is something for everyone. There are 3 patios. I often take the hammock and lounge on the patio outside the master bedroom.
