Wake up to birds singing, leaves rustling, and green all around you on a perfect country road located between Woodstock and Saugerties. Close to HITS! Gorgeous leafscape in the fall, dazzling white snow on pine trees in the winter. Property has hundreds of trees on 2+ acres, with landscaped garden, good-sized lawn, and rock outcroppings. Private but not isolated. Custom sunroom with AC and exercise equipment (stationary bike, yoga mat, medicine ball, weights). Bluestone patio with chaise lounges for lounging in nice weather, bluestone fireplace built from stones on the property for snuggling in winter and fall.
Comfortable furnishings, including mid-century modern pieces. Esquire magazine did a photo shoot there in December 2011.
3 bedrooms, including master bedroom suite with terrace. 1 ½ baths (upstairs is spa bath with Jacuzzi), custom terra-cotta tiled kitchen with dishwasher, toaster oven, microwave, washer/dryer. TV/DVD, high-speed Internet and Wi-fi. Woodstock Land Conservancy Nature Trail down the road, 'Big Pink' of Bob Dylan fame just a 5 minute walk away. House offers a very serene environment and beautiful views (seasonal mountain views from downstairs). It is perfect for relaxing, writing, meditating, regenerating, but is just a 10 minute drive from the shops and restaurants of both Woodstock and Saugerties.

I am a writer and professor in New York City. I love my home in the woods and would love to share it with others. It is the perfect blend of relaxation and stimulation - it is private but not isolated and close to two towns (Woodstock and Saugerties). It is great for solitude and writing but also a fun place for families - and a romantic retreat in all seasons.
I love the rustic feel of this area, my property has 'outcroppings' that can be explored and hiked, and there is a wonderful hiking trail run by the Woodstock Land Conservancy just down the road. And yet there are also great restaurants, shops, bookstores, so you have nature and fun at the same time.
My house has a wonderful serene energy, both inside and throughout the property. Whether you sit on the bluestone patio, or in front of the bluestone fireplace, or in bed drinking coffee or tea and looking at the trees, you feel a sense of calm. It is the perfect getaway.
