Total seclusion on 15 acres with extraordinary western views from every room. Perched on a mountainside off a maintained, private road and surrounded by the presence of natureÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â€Mountain Laurel, mature trees and perennials. Dramatic, calm, and sophisticated; this home has the feel of a mountain lodge evoking Frank Lloyd Wright. Large, open living room with vaulted ceilings, dormered sky lights, exposed beams, glass sliding doors leading out to usable deck/patio space, hardwood floors, and modern fireplace. Hand-built mahogany cabinets with granite countertops grace a kitchen that opens to a screened porch surrounded by decks, making barbecuing a breeze in any weather. Huge first floor master suite has more mahogany built-ins in the dressing room and a Juliet balcony overlooking the spectacular view. ThereÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢s also a second bedroom, with views, that is currently used as office space. Downstairs is a full, finished basement with a gym and spa (sauna & bath), a small deck that is perfect for yoga, and yes, VIEWS. Add to that another large bedroom; a sitting room; and a huge den/library with a wood stove. This could easily accommodate extended family, guests, a live-in relative, or nanny. There's an unfinished bathroom and an extra kitchen space, both with roughed-in plumbing. Other amenities include central air, new furnace (2013), wired hook-up for generator, and 2-car heated garage. The house is listed as a 3 bedroom with the town; although the current owners are using it as a four bedroom. Configure this dramatic yet Zen-like home in whatever way best suits your lifestyle. Close to skiing (Belleayre and Windham), hiking, swimming, fishingÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â€all the outdoor possibilities the Catskills have to offer. Or just ponder the view while you write that novel. 2 hours door-to-door to NYC.
