54 Shultis Farm Road, Bearsville
PRIVATE WOODSTOCK SPA-LIKE GETAWAY This extraordinary property, minutes from the village of Woodstock, is nestled high at the end of a private road, between mountain and stream, where the music of the Little Bear Paw Creek can be heard year round. You can sauna, and then swim anytime of the year in the full-size, indoor pool. Summer months you can include a dip in the adjacent creek. This property is like a cozy year round spa in the most glorious part of the Catskills. The house combines the best of modernist design and rustic comforts. It has an open, airy flow of space and plenty of well-manicured rooms in which to hang out or entertain. The living room has a brick, zero-clearing fireplace, which opens onto the lower deck above the creek and the recirculating Koi Pond Garden. The family room is a soaring modernist masterpiece, tiled in sea foam green ceramic with radiant heat throughout, all illuminated by the abundant natural light. It opens onto the year round, full sized, in-ground pool, which itself communicates from sliding glass doors, directly onto stone patios, with steps down to the mellifluous stream below. Alongside this exterior play area is a hot and cold outdoor shower. A top-of-the-line Harvia sauna from Finland and separate Swiss Shower are optimally located nearby on the ground floor. Melding handmade craftsmanship with modern convenience, the gourmet kitchen has an open contiguous dining area with a small office/work room conveniently adjacent. The rustic beamed ceiling and radiant heated, locally sourced bluestone flooring makes this a true gathering spot. Custom hardwood cabinets and granite counters perfectly accentuate the kitchen while state of the art appliances are built in to optimize kitchen space. Additionally there is a side entrance to the house leading directly into a mudroom and laundry area. A central hallway links the kitchen hub to the rear living area and pool. A bonus room is currently set up for extra sleeping while a spacious ground floor bedroom with access to a deck and in earshot of the stream rivals the upstairs master. The upper story bedrooms, master suite with walk-in closet and its own private streamside deck, and two secondary bedrooms, feel as though one were on a tree-top safari, surrounded by maple, oak, pine and distant mountain tops to the south. Imagine sleeping enveloped by swaying trees and trickling creek. There is a separate, mid-century style guest house/studio up the hill which overlooks the creek from its own private patio and bluestone fire pit. A perfect house for year-round use, for a weekend retreat, or for short term rental income, this unique home is a treasure of style and comfort and conviviality.
This mortgage calculator can be used to figure out monthly payments of a home mortgage loan, based on the home's sale price, the term of the loan desired, buyer's down payment percentage, and the loan's interest rate. This calculator factors in PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) for loans where less than 20% is put as a down payment. Also taken into consideration are the town property taxes, and their effect on the total monthly mortgage payment.
