This spectacular Woodstock estate home is the ideal spot for a family or group vacation. The 6,000+ square foot contemporary house has six bedrooms each with its own full bath; an indoor pool; a fully-equipped gym atrium with sauna, steambath, and hottub; huge gourmet kitchen and dining room with comfortable seating for twelve; and many other amenities. As you will see, this property has everything!
The house is minutes away from Woodstock, a nice walk to town. It lies at the end of a long private drive on 25 acres, including a 1/2 mile stretch of the Sawkill Stream. The landscaped area features a 1/4 acre pond, large lawn, flagstone patio and barbecue area, tire swing, fruit trees, and a berry garden.
The master bedroom suite on the main floor has a king-sized bed, stone gas-log fireplace, sitting area, cable television, and a window seat overlooking the pond. Across the hall is another large bedroom with king-sized bed and television. The upstairs level has four more large bedrooms, one with a queen bed, another with a full bed. The other two bedrooms each have a pair of twin beds and their own balconies.
The house is essentially a fully-equipped luxury spa. Off the main level is an atrium with an heated saline indoor lap pool (15'x40'), with an automatic retractable pool cover that keeps the room safe and dry. The atrium also has a full seating area, ping-pong table, and wood-burning stove.
At the rear of the house is another glass atrium with two levels. The main level holds a hot tub large enough to fit 8 adults. The upper level has a full gym, with treadmill, exercise bike, rowing machine, and weights, as well as another television. The gym also has its own full bathroom with a sauna and steam shower.
The main entertaining area includes a sunken living room with another stone gas-log fireplace; a family room with large television, massage chair, and traditional games; a dining area with a farm table that comfortably seats 12 adults; and a sun room that is our favorite room in the house.
The dining area is next to a gourmet kitchen that is perfect for large-scale entertaining. There is a Viking gas cooktop with six burners and a grill, a double electric oven, two dishwashers, and two Sub-Zero refrigerator freezers with icemakers -- as well as the three sinks, microwave oven, etc.
This being Woodstock, of course there must be music. A Sonos wireless system provides music in the living room, pool atrium, and on outdoor speakers. Three wireless routers provide high-speed internet throughout the house as well.
The house is owned, and frequently used, by a family in Westchester, NY, and is looked after by a local couple who are available to respond to any problems. As the owners have dogs and cats, we would not recommend the house to anyone with serious allergies; on the other hand, renters are welcome to bring dogs, who will have a great time.
PLEASE NOTE: NO SMOKING ALLOWED
A Note About Our Rates: We have raised our rates several times over our first six months as the house has been very popular with large parties who find it a bargain, and the maintenance costs (for pool, heating, etc.) have been correspondingly much higher than expected. We have also increased the security deposit as unfortunately one of our early renters proved irresponsible -- all of the others have been terrific in this regard. We only want responsible renters who are prepared to treat our house with respect.
(Further, please note that this is a large house with many mechanical items and it is possible that one or two amenities might not be working at any point in time -- for example, the steam shower was recently broken for two weeks while a part was on order and the built-in coffee maker is often out-of-commission (we have a regular coffee maker as well)). With the exception of the swimming pool, we do not make rent concessions for the occasional out-of-commission item.)
