The Catskills home of a renowned Manhattan architect has come on the market - are you sitting down? It's fabulous. Set on over four acres off a private road that borders the protected Bataviakill Watershed in Windham, the 4890 Sqft home is connected to a 3-bay garage by a covered walkway, a modern interpretation of a New England covered bridge, that frames the grand views of Windham Mountain's slopes which originally attracted the home's creator to this special property. The exterior of the home is perfect for entertaining- with 2,200 ft of tiered decks, patios, and meticulous landscaping that enhances the beauty of the home and the setting. The inside is lush with detail. A cozy sunken living room offers a 2-story wall of windows and a beautiful stone fireplace as its focal point. Wood details (cherry on the main floor,douglas fir beams, and cedar on the lower floor) warm the walls and ceilings throughout and comprise built-ins that serve as decorative elements and storage. Wide stairways to the lower and upper floors make the already spacious home feel larger. Off the living room is a formal dining area and a warm and welcoming u-shaped kitchen (a cook's dream!) that offers the same view as the living room. The architect considered the many ways the house might be used - from entertaining, to carving out private time, from play, to getting in some exercise. There's a curved family room that's big enough to host a party but decorated with wood and a cozy woodstove for year-round hygge. There's an office, a gym/recreation room, a cedar closet, and a billiards/game room on the lower floor. With one en suite bedroom on the main floor and 4 bedrooms on the second floor (including a primary suite with a private sitting room and balcony), there's space for everyone here. This is an incredible opportunity to own what might be the perfect mountain home just a few hours outside the city - seize it. The total sqft includes the 458 sqft finished basement.
