21 Cragswood Road, New Paltz
Imagine leaving your front door and being able to walk to the Mohonk Preserve, Walkill Valley Rail Trail or the beloved Bradley Farm without leaving your road. Couple those benefits with a sprawling, privately sited custom home that was designed and built for entertaining in all seasons – that’s what 21 Cragswood Road in New Paltz is all about. Drive past the spring-fed pond, park your car in the oversize garage and enter the mudroom with half bath and plenty of useful storage space. From there, the fabulous gourmet kitchen, with enough space for multiple cooks to enjoy preparing a meal together, offers every amenity, material and finish that you’d expect in a home of this stature. Adjacent breakfast room opens to a stone patio, the perfect place to grill or gaze out at the beautifully landscaped property. When entertaining, escort your guests through the impressive front doors into the airy foyer, which is flanked by the music and dining rooms. The magical limestone fireplace in the family room anchors the beautiful gathering space that opens to the covered patio, also facing the home’s great lawn and pool. There’s a bedroom and full bath on the first floor, ideal for those who are mobility challenged. The second floor includes the master suite, two additional bedrooms, laundry room and a home office. The master is an oasis of indulgence, with vaulted ceilings, wood-burning fireplace, private deck, two large walk-in closets and an elegant bathroom with double sinks, steam shower, soaking tub, and the most beautiful Turkish marble floors. There’s a huge-walk-up attic, wonderfully useful just as it is and potentially convertible to a variety of other uses. The home’s lower level, which opens to the rear yard, is an environment unto itself. There’s a huge family room with wet bar, a small workout room, and an impressive wine cellar and tasting room, outfitted with French limestone shelving. The property is magnificent, with lovely specimen plantings, the pond, which shields the home from the quiet road, large outdoor entertaining lawn, a beautiful inground pool, and acres of woods to roam. From Cragswood Road it’s a short drive to the villages of New Paltz, Rosendale, High Falls and Stone Ridge, each with its own character and assortment of restaurants, shops and galleries. The Metro-North station in Poughkeepsie isn’t far and the Trailways bus station is even closer.
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.
