About Lot 5 Huckleberry Terrace
Canopy is a two story, three-bed, three-bath home that hugs a steep ridge line overlooking the Hudson Valley and invokes the tranquility of being immersed in nature. Embracing its namesake, this treehouse style home elevates the primary living space to the second floor. Floor-to-ceiling windows on either side of the elongated volume will give the effect of being in and amongst the trees, while the extra height on the home guarantees views to both east and west. A grand double-height entryway draws visitors upstairs, while both ground level and second floor decks connect indoor and outdoor spaces. Private bedrooms balance either end of the home, making this the perfect space for friends, family, or empty-nesters who want to retain their sense of privacy when the kids come to visit. This unique house is a reversed two story plan - stilts elevate the main living space to the second floor of the home, accentuating sweeping views of the eastern valley and of Kaaterskill Wild Forest to the west. A rigorous grid system accentuates the rhythm of windows and wood siding, creating an exceptional visual experience of the home. A two story atrium space at the first floor entryway evokes a sense of grandeur as you ascend to the floating second story. The kitchen, dining area, and living space form a long, linear bar and are lined by floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides. The kitchen features a large island with ample space to cook and entertain guests, with space for bar-style seating. The living room is anchored by a fireplace wall which continues from the lower floor atrium space. At the northern end of the second floor is the main suite, featuring a separate toilet room, double sink, and a wet room area with a shower and freestanding tub. The southern end of the home, connected via a walkway across the atrium space, contains two additional bedrooms, with a shared bathroom between them. On the first floor, a laundry room, additional bathroom and flex space round out the floor plan. The floating second floor creates two lower exterior spaces - a covered carport area and a lower deck ideal for entertaining in all weather conditions. Optional additions include a garage with a roof deck that functions as a second story deck for the living area, and a pool with an extended pool deck. Catskill Terraces is the latest community of homes to be designed and built by Studio MM Architect and HV Contemporary Homes, the team behind the fabulous Trout Creek Road properties in Kerhonkson, Hill Road Houses in Accord, and many privately commissioned projects throughout the Hudson Valley and beyond.
