241 Upper Byrdcliffe Road, Woodstock
A rare opportunity to own a large Upper Byrdcliffe home in one of Woodstock’s most historic and sought-after areas. Plenty of space (4 or 5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, a great room plus additional den) with charm, character, and a wonderful location only a mile to Woodstock Village. Originally the art studio and home of Frank Swift Chase, one of the early settlers of the Byrdcliffe Colony and founder of the Woodstock Artists Association, this impeccable classic colonial farmhouse is full of surprises. From the massive great room with beamed high ceilings and windows everywhere, to the cozy living room - each with a Rumford fireplace - one can sense the history and legacy of Woodstock's artistic heritage. A beautiful four-season sunroom with bluestone floor and a first-floor primary suite both spill out to extensive decks leading to the in-ground pool. Back inside, the sunny galley kitchen hosts a breakfast area on one end and additional room on the other end for a dining table, extended pantry or home office (which is how it is currently configured). Meander upstairs to find 3 more bedrooms and 2 more full baths, all just loaded with charm! Nooks, crannies, window seats, and original hardware abound everywhere. The main-level master suite was added in 2004 and carefully designed and executed to maintain the original character of the home. It looks, from the outside and inside, to have always been there. Custom made built-ins and closets were mindfully created with hardware closely resembling the 100-year-old originals throughout the rest of the home. There is an additional room on the main level which can be used as an office, nursery, den or more guest space. It adjoins a second full bathroom on the first floor. The sellers have lived here for 30+ years and have maintained the property meticulously with all systems in tip-top shape and ready for the next owners' enjoyment. As for the neighborhood, it doesn't get any better than this one! Tucked away from the main thoroughfare, Upper Byrdcliffe is home to weekenders and full time residents including many artists, musicians and writers from all walks of life, some of whom are on temporary internships through the Byrdcliffe Arts Colony. A walker's paradise, one can take in the sounds and sights of nature and even take a guided hiking tour of Mt. Guardian. Nearby are the Byrdcliffe Theatre and famed ceramics studio where one can take classes and see performances in the summer months. A short ride or stroll in either direction to Sunfrost or Woodstock Village for food, restaurants, shops, galleries, music and theatre. Hiking everywhere and skiing or water activities all within 30 minutes.
