The Woodstock House is distinctive and gracious.
The Woodstock house is ideally located within walking distance to the Bear Café, Little Bear restaurant, Cub Market, and the Bearsville Theater. It is on a “cared for” 2.5 acres of land, set back from the main road, on a private lane leading to the house driveway where there is parking. Surrounded by woodland and a cultivated back yard, this country house is ideal, it is very private and only 2 miles to the Village Green, the center of Woodstock.
In the spring this unique house is covered with wisteria and in the fall burning red leaves cover huge Japanese maple trees in the yard, they are truly estate déjà vu. The house is 1800sq feet, just right for 6 people as well as 2 people. There are 3 bedrooms all with queen beds and two full bath rooms.
There is a gated white fence where guests enter the back of the property. At the house there is an entrance room where you can bring your things just before the kitchen. The kitchen has lots of country cabinets, a stove, large refrigerator, Bella coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave, Bella toaster, all the cookware and dinner service you will ever want. A glass table with chairs on one end of the kitchen is surrounded by a built in curved glass window that lets in light and air. Behind louver doors are some storage areas and a washer and dryer. Food can be easily taken outside from the kitchen to the stone patio table with chairs and umbrella. This is a good place to grill also.
From the kitchen through Dutch doors it opens into the dining area. There is a beautifully raised country ceiling defining the room and a long dining table that was a great gift from Gael Green a New Yorker food critic, it’s a perfect fit. There is also a large stone fireplace with corner benches, Modern wrought iron lighting hangs over the country table, six comfortable high backed chairs privately designed with an inspired dining room mural using matching colors. The large open floor plan allows a view from the dinning room to the living room.
There is a small sitting room before the downstairs full bathroom that has a tub, shower and plenty of towels. Near the bathroom are the bedrooms, they are private with queen beds and windows that open to the backyard. They also have flat screen TVs with lots of cedar lined closets.
There is a fun mix of the 60’s dominating the furnishings in the house, basically the ambience is eclectic. All rooms flow into the living room with wide pine planking flooring throughout the house. A huge hotel like wrought iron lighting fixture hangs from the 18 ft living room cathedral ceiling. Next to the collection cabinets the hour glass staircase leads to the upstairs bedroom. This acoustically designed room is a comfortable gathering place for all with a 64 inch flat screen TV that has cable with Netflix and a Bluetooth / dock stereo for your tunes. The sitting room has an opening to the living room and this is sometimes used as a serving window to pass food and drinks to people when there are parties.
On the wall that leads up to the second story master bedroom there is an original 8 ft. narrow mural painted with the colors of the living room. At the end of the hall is the bathroom, it is stocked with towels. The large light and airy master bedroom has lots of windows, is away from the rest of the house and is a private quiet get away. There is a large walk in closet, a flat screen TV with cable, and also a record player with a vintage record collection that you can take for a spin. Cheerful isn’t the word for it, it’s a place you could bring a cup of coffee from the kitchen and hang out.
This property has a charming wonderful one large room cottage with lots of windows. Huge Rhododendrons hug the windows and are fantastically beautiful when in bloom the cottage sits back from the main house and is reached from the parking area following a stone path. The living area has comfortable furniture along with table and chairs near the kitchen area. A queen bed is in a back section of the room with narrow ceiling high windows above. Although small, the bathroom has a roomy size stall shower.
For an extra cost the cottage creates a convenient additional space if you need room for more people.
