For the first time on the market in over a half century, this magnificent property is filled with history: it was the residence of Edgar Villchur who was an American inventor, educator, and writer widely known for his 1954 invention of the acoustic suspension loudspeaker which revolutionized the field of high-fidelity equipment. Located within walking distance of the Woodstock village, this Woodstocky home would make a fabulous Bed and Breakfast, with its rambling 3500 square feet. The breathtaking mountain views are magnificent throughout all seasons and the beauty of the landscape makes you forget you are so close to town. It is totally secluded and the vines covered bluestone patios are reminiscent of quaint villas in Tuscany! Up the long driveway sits this Grande Dame aspiring for new owners with a vision. Years ago, she hosted famous parties for friends, family and who's who of Woodstock and New York. The very large living room with beamed ceilings is graced by a fireplace, and is flanked by a cozy den (also with fireplace) allowing for large gatherings, with french doors opening to one of the bluestone patios. You cannot help yourself but stare at those mountain views! One of the rooms on the first floor was recently used as a bedroom, but could be a media room, as part of it is actually soundproof! It also has a fireplace and a full bath with a walk in tub. Upstairs you'll find 5 bedrooms (3 larger and 2 smaller) with 2 full baths . One of the larger bedrooms has french doors opening onto a big roof deck, allowing you to take in the views! The other two big bedrooms also have a fireplace. The walk up attic (with square footage not included in the 3500) lends itself to tons of storage, and because of the layout, could possibly accommodate extra bedrooms, one having a small balcony. The home has central air and a stand by generator. On the beautiful landscaped grounds, you'll find rock outcroppings, a meadow and a pond, with its own dock. A 2 car garage with a walk up attic complete the property. Nature lovers and melancholic seekers of yesteryear charm, this is not to be missed!

Mortage Calculator

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.
