2380 Glasco Turnpike, Woodstock
This special property is literally called Storybook - and was the home and studio of Maud and Miska Petersham, prominent children's book illustrators and an important part of the Woodstock creative community for decades. The original magic and character of this home has been lovingly updated by the current owners, who undertook a massive renovation including replacing all of the electric and plumbing, replacing the roof, adding foam insulation through most of the home, adding central air, replacing the boiler, adding radiant heat on the first floor, adding whole house water filter and softener, adding laundry, fully restoring and stocking all of the flowerbeds...and many, many more items. You can now equally appreciate original details like the wrought-iron hardware as well as the smart home systems that allow you to have more control over the temperature, lights, music, and security from your phone. It's hard to appreciate from photos how expansive yet cozy this home feels - or the large number of outside spaces to enjoy from having a summertime meal under the wisteria-covered pergola on the bluestone patio in the front, grilling in the back on the covered deck behind the kitchen, or making s'mores in front of the fire pit! Although only minutes from the center of Woodstock, there's the sense of privacy and being enveloped by nature that is so sought after by both full-time residents and weekenders alike. Will you be the one to write the next chapter in this delightful story? (Note: the home is currently being used as a 3 bedroom, with the 4th bedroom having been converted to a large laundry room. It could easily be converted back.)
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.
