As you leave the oh so hip village of Woodstock and you start up the side of Overlook Mountain, you're on your way to a rare treat. Hanging on the side of this mountain, drenched in the sun, is one very incredible dwell style home that you'll be lucky to call home. The mountain side road is a bit of a challenge but once you arrive Wow is all you'll be able to utter. This place is one of a kind and the owner has spared no expense building this beauty. This home was built with a nice southern exposure so that all the rooms face a breath taking view of Ulster County and far, far beyond the Ashokan Reservoir and the Hudson River. The entry way to this beauty is high lighted with an exterior stairway and bridge over the driveway. This gives you the first taste of that oh so awesome view and brings you into a two story atrium space. Ascend that stairway and you'll arrive in a large glass great-room that will make you feel like you're on top of the world. This design is known as a Neo-Modern style and was designed by a well known local architect named Les Walker. The materials used here are varied and soothing. On the lower level you'll find a comfy TV room with granite floors, fireplace, big 3-D flat screen TV, Playstation 3 that will play 3D, Blue Ray movies. The Bose system will also play movies, DVDs and all with surround sound and Sirius stations. There's a half bath on this floor and a nice fourth bedroom. Head on upstairs and check out those Cherry hard wood floors and the chefs kitchen with gorgeous Ceaserstone counters, breakfast nook and stainless appliances. Next to it is a nice laundry room. The living room is wide open and has it's own fire place. From there you can walk out onto the big deck and try out that 6 person hot tub!! Also on this floor is a childs bedroom with two race car beds and a guest bedroom with a queen sized bed. You'll also find a killer bath room with gorgeous marble tile work and a huge sky lite. The stair case in the great room takes you to the master suite on the next level. There you'll find a king sized bed and the best view around. The master bath is to drool for. Huge glass shower with steam and a big jetted soaking tub. The owner has built a beauty here. Check out the custom Maple cabinets built in throughout the home. Slip off your shoes and experience the radiant heated floors. Nothing has been over looked here. Even the grill on the deck is tied into the propane tank. If you ever leave the mountain side to explore Mohonk or Minnewaska or to hike some of the famous Catskill Mountain trails or to carve some trails on the local ski slopes, you'll know something incredible is waiting for your return home.
We lead very busy lives in the city and always try to escape when possible. We fell in love with this area and decided to build a weekend home here. This place is incredible and has really given us the ultimate escape. We can't use it every weekend and are willing to share it with those that really appreciate what we've created here.
Bruce Stalnaker purchased this chateau / country house in 2009
We wanted an awesome view year round and to be close to I-87 and Woodstock. We selected this 4 plus acre mtn side lot and carefully built into the side of the mtn.
We get such incredible light here and that view changes with the clouds. All four seasons are special here. Night time is dark up here for maximum star gazing. The hot tub is inviting in any season. You won't want to leave.
Great house. Views fantastic, house is private and well kept. The house manager very friendly and helpful. 5 minutes to town. Very comfortable.
The house was really nice. It is just a very cool house in general. The setup with the bridge from the driveway to the home is really different. The views are amazing. The house is very comfortable. The house manager was easy to work with and had everything ready. Although we didnt spend much time inside (we were taking advantage of all the catskills have to offer), I thought the accomodations were great and could easily fit a family, three couples, etc. The road to the house is steep, but that adds to the feel of the area. You are in the mountains. Would definitely rent again and may try for some winter skiing this year.
This house is absolutely stunning and everything that we wanted when searching for a perfect summer house for 5 nights away from NYC. It's super modern (new), open layout, clean, amazing views, and conveniently located a few minutes from Woodstock town. We were a party of 5 adults and 3 kids (ages 7, 3, 15 months old). The living space was so so so spacious; plenty of room for the kids to run around or play outside on the huge balcony. There is a nice-sized hot tub on the balcony, but we didn't use it - we opted to set up an inflatable kiddie pool instead (so much fun!). Because we have young kids, we picked up grocery from a local market and made all our meals. The well-stocked kitchen was a joy to cook in. A bonus is that the house has TONS of really cool toys that helped entertain our kids for hours. We couldn't be more glad we chose to stay here. Bruce, the property manager was such a pleasure to work with; he was very responsive, easy going, and accommodating.
The pictures do no do this home justice. There is an open floor plan on the main floor: which includes a gorgeous kitchen, huge fire place, exceptionally large living/dining room and million dollar view. It was perfect because our large group could all be together, while not being on top of one another. The other floor has two huge leather reclining couches, another large fireplace with a TV and a bar -- downstairs was ideal for Football Sunday. The beds, bathrooms and everything else are all very nice. Plenty of wood in the garage too. Oh, I almost forget the best part: Huge, sunken hot tub that overlooks the picturesque landscape that only Woodstock can offer. We had a bunch of food delivered to the house, great Italian food and BBQ. If there is snow, drive an SUV. My only hope is to be able to rent this magnificent home again. The property manager/owner is also very easy to work with, a good communicator and returned 100% of my deposit only days after my rental ended. If I had something negative to say, I would have (I'm not shy!)
We loved this place and had a wonderful stay. It's location is fantastic because it's on the side of mountain with great views and feels very private but at the same time Woodstock is only 5 minutes drive away. Sitting in the hot tub on the side of the mountain on a cool winters night with the snow around you is magical. Plenty of space for the family and the driveway made a great sled run for the kids after some snow fall. Bruce the property manager is great and very responsive and attentive both when booking and during our stay. The only negative is that the 4th bedroom downstairs is next to the boiler room so it's a bit noisy for light sleepers. That said this was a unique and special place to stay and my favorite house and location, to date, in Woodstock.
Very impressed with my weekend here. The views are expansive and my group joked that we were looking down on Middle Earth. Deck, hottub, and grill are the true gems of the place. In-home surround sound system really enhanced the experience. Deceivingly close to downtown Woodstock yet a world-away.
Bruce was great to work with: friendly, very accessible, and easily facilitated the whole process. Will not disappoint!
This area is full of things to do. You're in the famous Catskill Mountains here. There are miles of trails to hike and several mountains to ski. We've got incredible parks to explore like Mohonk and Minnewaska with countless miles of old carriage roads to bike and pristine lakes to swim. Local hikes to places like the Overlook Fire Tower will test your metal but reward you with views to droll over. Eclectic local villages like Woodstock, Saugerties and Phoenicia are great to explore. Kingston has one of everything as far as stores go. Fine restaurants can be found in all of them. Time will slip by you here and this house is just soooo amazing you won't want to leave!! Sit out on the deck or in that huge hot tub and just drink in the view and serenity.
