I am an Artist and a professional Designer of textiles, wallpapers and whatever else comes my way. My home reflects my love of antiques and tranquility. After decades in NYC I purchased this property and have been enjoying the beauty of the Hudson Valley ever since. There is always something new to explore in the area and my life reflects a simple lifestyle off the beaten track, yet part of a fascinating artistic community. Ever since leaving the City I have especially appreciated the abundance of Nature all around me-in my own backyard, hiking the gorgeous mountains and enjoying nearby lakes and the Hudson River. I love to travel and in recent years have been on Safari in Tanzania which stimulated my love of photography. Last winter I spent a good deal of time in Belize and my artwork, as well as my home reflects all of this.
Laura Katz purchased this house in 1999
Close enough to NYC and yet far enough away. This property offers total privacy in a bucolic setting but is less than a mile into town. It has the best of both worlds.
Whether relaxing on the porch, patio or lawn- one is surrounded by natural beauty.
It's also a totally cozy home for reading by the fireplace, or in the reading nook upstairs.
The house has history- it is the original farmhouse on this Lane- but has been renovated to be up to date on modern conveniences.
The main house has 2 BR but there is a studio addition w/ a separate BR and bath which can be included in rental.
My family and I gathered at Laura's house for a few days during the Christmas Holidays this past December. It was a wonderful, perfect time, with grown children and new spouses hunting for a tree (I think they found the last one available in upstate New York! ), making fires, and creating delicious meals. The house is set up just right for people to mingle in the front room, or to wander elsewhere for some quiet. This old farmhouse has much charm, both on it's own, and also with the artistic and warm touches of Ms Katz. We really liked that it felt earthy and welcoming - we weren't afraid to make it our own! It was not pretentious at all, but it was obvious the place is loved. To top off our stay there- the snow fell on Christmas night, with our sons out romping as they have forever when snowballs can be made. It was a pleasure doing business with Laura and I liked her quick replies to questions I had, and her attention to little details that she felt would make our visit be the best it could be. I would definitely recommend this house for a family gathering in the winter,but could imagine it in warm weather as well.
