Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible beds, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 8-10)

Perched on top a mountain on twelve private acres is this one of a kind, architect and designer-crafted, custom built, contemporary home. Arguably the newest and best luxury home on the rental market in Ulster County!

Made for entertaining in style, this private paradise is located off of a private road in an exclusive area of Woodstock/Hurley that abuts the Ashokan Reservoir. At least seven peaks (at the last count!) are visible from all rooms of the house, and the mountain range views are even more dramatic from the massive floating cedar deck.

The house was constructed by master craftsmen, and no expense has been spared on top of the line cabinetry and fixtures. Designer touches are visible throughout...exposed ceiling beams, Brazilian cherry wide-plank floors, Grohe fixtures, limestone tile in bathrooms, Asian inspired above counter bathroom sink bowls, designer lighting, custom staircases, exquisite glass and wood work detail. The custom designed bathroom vanities were built by a craftsman that even Robert Wilson calls upon for his impeccable woodworking!

The magnificent living area leads out onto a beautiful deck with incredible mountain views. It has stunning cherry floors, a huge wood burning fire, a serious music system with Smartphone hook up. The open concept format seamlessly integrates the kitchen, dining and living areas together.

The top floor was designed as a 'Master Suite' and features a magnificent loft with colossal ceiling-height and spectacular mountain views; a custom glass, stainless and wood loft surround. The loft houses the media area with a 55' flat screen TV, Denon sound system & DVD player.

A gallery hallway leads to the massive Master bedroom with cathedral ceilings and the beautifully appointed, Italian limestone master bath which features a custom built double walnut vanity, huge shower with rain head and separate hand held shower, plus a 6 ft soaking tub.

The four bedrooms are all generously sized and offer magnificent views. There are three full and one half baths, each custom appointed. All bathrooms include glass, limestone, and/or slate tiling, custom glass work and Grohe fixtures. Each one is uniquely designed and all beautiful.

The gourmet kitchen features high end, stainless steel appliances, a gas stove, plenty of cooking utensils, cabinets specifically imported from Italy, and a beautiful Shivakashi-granite countertop.

The garden level features another full custom finished bath, a queen bedroom, polished concrete floors, high ceilings, RADIANT floor heating, a massive wood burning fireplace and fantastic open areas for entertaining.

The surrounding area offers incredible variety and natural beauty. This is a year round destination: swimming holes abound in the summer, foliage in the fall is incredible, New York's best ski hills in the winter, and the spring is simply magical. There are world class spas and restaurants, and fun shopping in the quirky town of Woodstock, America's most famous small town and birth place of the musical revolution of 1969.

Keywords: Luxury Home, retreat, mountain vacation, swimming, fishing, golf, hiking, spectacular views, privacy on 12 acres, minutes to town.

About Christine Barker

I live in New York but grew up in Canada and Bermuda, two wildly different climates! When it comes to property I tend to prefer the extremes....extreme country, or extreme city, and that's one of the things I love about Woodstock. It's less than two hours from New York City, but it's a million miles away with respect to it's ambiance, culture and attitude. Woodstock is a fabulous combination of getting away from it all while still having plenty to do.

Why Christine Barker chose Catskills

While the eastern side of the Hudson River valley tends toward rolling topography historically suitable for farmland, thanks to the Catskill mountain range, on our side we enjoy skiing, hiking, rock climbing and delicious mountain views. The unique village of Woodstock retains the same quirkiness that attracted the likes of Bob Dylan and Janis Joplin and ultimately the infamous Woodstock music festival, garnering it the title of the 'most famous small town in America'. The pristine beauty of the surroundings inevitably grew an avid following from New York City, so a sophisticated but casual community has evolved. The Town of Woodstock proudly bears the title 'colony of the arts'. There are music concerts, theatre, art galleries, and film festivals along with farm festivals. This really is a year round destination: the summer is lush and beautiful, and people of all ages enjoy the many streams and swimming holes, there is a beautiful golf course golf in Woodstock, a tennis center in Saugerties (15 minutes away), as well as hiking and rock climbing. The fall is absolutely spectacular, the foliage can be outrageous, the air cool and refreshing. When winter hits, there's downhill and cross country skiing, snow shoeing....or just relaxing in front of the fire and taking in the beautiful snowy views isn't too bad either. The fresh air and beautiful light that spring brings is absolutely invigorating.

What makes this house unique

This is arguably one of the nicest rentals in Ulster county. It's private, beautiful, peaceful, brand new...and the mountain views are spectacular. It's on 12 acres and at the top of a mountain, but only a five minute drive to the village of Woodstock.

The house is very spacious but also intimate. The bedrooms are large and private, the bathrooms tastefully tiled in limestone and glass with custom fixtures,and the kitchen comfortably outfitted. The house is tastefully furnished, and even with a large group there is enough space to have quiet time if you so wish.

Incredible getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This was truly an incredible experience! Such a gorgeous home, so much to be desired here! Totally worth spending he last weekend of summer here! We barely had to leave the house! Everything you need is here! My family absolutely loved this gorgeous house! The views are spectacular, and everything about the house was of the highest standard. It was a pleasure to work with the owners! If you're second guessing yourself, don't! Book this home!

Beautiful home and view!

  • 5 of 5

Great house! Tons of room! House very clean with nice bathrooms and big bedrooms. We spent a lot of time in the tv den on the 3rd floor watching college baseball. Comfy couch and great tv/cable, etc. Nice appliances in the kitchen as well. Easy home instructions and relaxed house rules. Woodstock is a cute town- lots of restaurants, cute shops, etc.

Fantastic Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We (five couples) rented this gem for a spring weekend getaway to celebrate our sister's 60th birthday, and it was the perfect setting for a magical weekend. The home is spacious, clean, gorgeous, secluded, and the view is intoxicating. We explored the area in and around Woodstock a bit (went to the monastery, walked around town, took a hike) , but honestly we all just wanted to go back to the house and enjoy its solace. The owners were a delight to work with, and we would recommend this property to anyone -- especially for a larger group. Thank you!!

The perfect mountain retreat

We loved our stay - spacious and beautifully appointed with amazing views of the mountains. And only a short drive to downtown. Just what we were looking for!

Spacious house with open design and breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

Our experience with this house, from the time of booking to our departure, was outstanding. The house is just as seen in the photos, with quality furnishings, simple and clean décor, and lots of open space. You get a great view of the mountains from practically every room in the house (and there are plenty of windows)! It was very easy to settle in and feel right at home quickly. the fact that the house was so clean was a huge plus! We were two adults and two young kids, so obviously didn't utilize all the space/rooms, but were still able to enjoy all aspects of the house, including the pool table on the ground floor. There is a flat front lawn, which was great for the kids to play on, but the wooded and sloped back yard was also fun for the kids to explore. Given the house is situated higher up in the mountain, it is nicely secluded and peaceful. Much like other guests who have stayed here, we are very much looking forward to returning one day.
