This very special mid 19th century Woodstock home has been in the same family for over 60 years, has been well loved, and is on the market for the first time! My favorite way to enter the property is by crossing the footbridge far above the forest floor overlooking a seasonal stream. Follow the meandering path towards the cottage and the main house. Situated on two private acres, you are instantly transported to your own secluded oasis. Stroll the magical garden paths through the meticulously designed flower gardens bordered by a myriad of stone walls. Sit a moment in the gazebo to inhale. Your private secret garden offering a sense of awe, peace and tranquility as only nature can do. Continue around the gazebo and cross the bridge past the babbling fountain and take the steps to the grand veranda. The grand veranda is a perfect combination of elegance and country. Large enough to host the most delightful dinner parties or intimate enough for a quiet cup of tea with a friend. This will be your spot. It even has a wood fired pizza oven and grill! Built in 1875 this beauty is filled with warmth and charm. A three bedroom that has been thoughtfully updated to retain its original charm, including open post and beam and wide board pine floors. Warm and inviting, the kitchen is open to the the living room with a cozy brick fireplace. The expansive dining area is surrounded by windows, filled with sunlight and overlooks the entire backyard. The primary bedroom is on the main floor and has an entrance to the veranda. You will find two bedrooms and a bath on the second floor. The main house has an attached two bedroom guest house with cathedral ceiling, post and beam living room and its own kitchen, fireplace, bathroom and separate entrance. So perfect for extended family and friends to be together yet have their own private hideaway. An enchanting one bedroom post and beam cottage sits tucked away near the back of the property. It offers a full kitchen and bath, charming living room and French doors to patio where you will sit under the pergola surrounded by an herb and vegetable garden. Your summer days will be spent enjoying the pool. Dramatic, with stone pillars and a stately overhead arbor. This very special property feels so private. The grounds have been a labor love for years. This is a horticulturist’s delight with cherry, apple, apricot and pear trees. climbing hydrangea, magnolias and specimen tree peonies. A bluestone fire pit, gazebo, paths and gardens, benches to sit and breathe. The perfect gathering place for family and friends. Just three minutes to the center of Woodstock. Close to the Ashokan Rail Trail, miles of hiking trails in the Catskill Preserve, excellent restaurants and treasure hunting! A short drive to all we love in the Hudson Valley!
