35 Abbey Rd, Woodstock
Drive over a welcoming stream and step into this immaculate, authentic mid-century home where you'll immediately feel the grace and sublime beauty of Woodstock's Abbey Road. Immediately upon arriving at the property upon crossing the always flowing stream you'll be greeted by natures' beauty, all lovingly enhanced through the home's perennial gardens, a mix of flowering trees and local hardwoods which attract colorful butterfly and bird life. Every room in the home is filled with light and the large windows have been carefully designed to take in the tranquil surrounding vistas. Sunrise and sunset are particularly spectacular here, viewed from the house, the deck, pool or garden and meadow. The subtle Feng Shui of several babbling creeks run along the edge of the 5.4 acres and a 2+ acre underground electric fence will allow your pets to play and explore safely. A sunny, large 20 X 40 heated saline pool is a blue gem reflecting the background mountain views throughout the warm months. Here is a true haven for friends and family. Once inside the loft-style living space are all the amenities one desires. Soaring 18-foot ceilings in the living room are anchored at the far end by a floor-to-ceiling wood burning stone fireplace. The gourmet kitchen has a hooded six burner Wolf stove; Asko dishwasher; Jenn Air French Door refrigerator and polished granite counter-tops. The walk-in pantry is perfect for storing every item a chef might need. Similarly, every room in the house boasts oversized closets. A generous media/family room is located opposite the living room and kitchen- wonderfully placed for both privacy and noise consideration with sliding doors and views of the year round stream. A graciously wide, sky-lit gallery leads to the bedrooms from the primary living spaces. And, what a master suite you'll discover! Large enough to have its own sitting area, king-sized bed, double-sized walk-in closets and a bath that offers all the space and light one could want. A "tea for two" tub is located in the second bathroom, and for those who love hardwood floors they run throughout the house and are intact underneath the carpeting. Comfortable Trex decking off the living room faces the gardens, pool, lawn, fields and mountain range views in the distance. The home-to-pool paths have well-planned night lighting as does the landscaping in the near and far lawns with their up-lit trees. A pool cabana fitted with electric and water complete this picture. The homes' attached heated garage has ample wall-to-wall storage shelving and built-ins as well as a storage attic. There is central A/C for the hottest days but it's rarely needed as Catskill mountain breezes cool the property all summer long. Likewise, a fenced raised- bed vegetable and cutting garden provide pleasure and a bounty of veggies. The far side of the open lawns are bordered by old stone walls and back-up to state forever wild lands. The adventurous hiker can explore the trails that wind though the mountain and these woodlands. Or, if more defined, paved and manicured trails are desired, Wilson State Park is a mile down the road and a joy to explore in all seasons. The Park features a large fresh water pond attracting geese and duck with canoes and rowboat rentals available. This home is an easy ten minutes to both Woodstock & Phoenicia and thirty minutes to ski slopes, but really, who will want to leave paradise found?!
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.
