THE IMAGERY: Situate yourself and relax atop the second-story balcony gazing over the still, sweeping meadow and private pond that is a natural reflection pool for the not-so-distant sprawling mountain range as the sun ever so lightly touches and delicately descends below the horizon. Tranquility with nothing but the sounds of nature and the deep, day's-end sigh of relaxation. No blaring horns. No airplanes overhead. A slight grin appears, glass of wine in hand, as you realize the absence of chaos and commotion to distract from the euphoria of the moment. THE HOUSE: A 5 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom radical log cabin. Great in size yet not overwhelmingly so. The first floor boasts a very comfortable open-corner kitchen with oversized refrigerator and breakfast bar. From there, a dining room with sizable windows leading to the substantial living area surrounding a stone fireplace that parallels a picture window with a view of the mountains. The central hall brings you to bedrooms one and two - Both being medium in size, they would make incredible office spaces or studios! At the end, the French-style doors lead into the enclosed, vaulted ceiling 4-season room with in-ground hot tub, floor-to-ceiling windows and access to the subtle, yet sprawling deck. Next, you will travel up the architectural staircase to the second floor. On the left, you will find the guest suite (Bedroom 3) with a reading nook and bedroom 4 adjacent. The massive Master Bedroom has an open jacuzzi tub and balcony overlooking the entire property. There is a state-of-the art security system with a plethora of security cameras inside the house and surrounding the property so you can keep an eye out while you're away. THE PROPERTY: 4.4 sprawling greenbelt acres. There is a fenced in and landscaped in-ground pool and pool house. Adjacent to the large pond, you will find a slew of covered stables with fenced grazing area / riding rink for horses and animals of the like. Beyond the pool lies a sizable parcel of maintained property that could easily double as a second riding area. THE CONCLUSION: Escape the concrete jungle and take a ride up to the Historic Village of Saugerties. Just minutes outside sits this spectacular country retreat. Being less than 10 minutes to the NYS Thruway and a 15-20 minute ride to the Village of Woodstock, you will never run out of places to visit or see along the way. From festivals to outdoor activities, own a retreat that resides in one of America's Top 20 Small Towns.
