We are ex-city dwellers ( from New York City and London) and purchased this home in 1995 to escape our city lives and enjoy nature, art and tranquility. We both love historic and contemporary architecture, so this house really appealed to us, especially the pool in a huge private field, which is simply spectacular. The house is totally charming like in England or France, yet very comfortable with all modern amenities.
Relaxed style, comfort and convenience-that is what you will experience renting our Woodstock farmhouse which we call Your Home in Woodstock. The town has all the amenities of a city with all the charm of a small country village. The area has always been home to many creative people and outdoor adventurists looking to escape to a sophisticated yet low-key natural setting. The quant village of Woodstock has everything one would need, including a movie theatre, a book store, several fine restaurants, a gourmet food store and a wine shop. What more could you ask for? Yet everything is surrounded by 700,000 acres of forever wild land-The Catskill State Park. So we are guaranteed nature, tranquility and culture. This is a four seasons community filled with enlightened people-just perfect!
We completely renovated the house without ruining its original character, as the original central structure dates to 1920 and was a horse stable. All rooms are a balance of antique and modern styles-open, bright and airy, yet with historic architectural details and old world craftsmanship. And the convenient location just can not be beat! You can bike or walk to town; the train to NYC (Amtrak Rhinecliff) is only 25 minutes drive, and the house sits at the base of a mountain. The property is south-facing, flat and private, with the pool sited in a field. Windows are large and feature garden views throughout the interiors. A screened porch that overlooks the garden has wicker furniture and a dining table that seats 6-the perfect place to relax. The 'BIG DEEP' and Hudson River Beaches are close, so you can enjoy swimming, boating and fishing. Farmers markets, concerts, art galleries and shops are all at hand-this is just the perfect country retreat! Professionally maintained.
