About 195 Morey Hill Road
Calling all nature seekers! Unique contemporary home in Woodstock, minutes from NYS Thruway Exit 19, sits on 4 acres but also includes the adjacent parcel of 3 acres, totaling 7 acres. It borders acres of state land and the Bluestone Wild Forest, known for Onteora Lake, ponds, trails, old quarries, hemlock and oak forests, great for hiking, biking, fishing, hunting, snowshoeing and cross country skiing. The house boasts 2945 sq ft, with a separate home business wing, 3 BR, 2 Baths as well as a partially finished basement. As you step through the main entrance, you'll find beautiful, natural light provided by a skylight and floor-to-ceiling windows in the combined living and dining area. Here you'll also discover a working brick fireplace, open kitchen with oak cabinetry, and kitchen island with counter for extra seating. Directly off the kitchen are two bedrooms and the first of two full bathrooms. From the living/dining area there is a door leading to the spacious deck that overlooks a field, a stream, and the forest beyond. The deck with built-in seating is private enough for relaxing and spacious enough for entertaining. A set of steps leads down to a large bluestone patio that provides more space to enjoy the natural surroundings. To the right of the foyer, through a set of elegant French doors, is a generous family room with high ceilings and five skylights, a wood-stove insert, and a set of stairs leading to a sleeping loft/office. This area of the house has wood floors throughout, including in the principal bedroom, which has its own entrance to the deck, a lofted ceiling, a walk-in closet, and large bathroom with a shower and separate, fantastic European bathtub. (Anyone who likes to read in the tub will fall in love with this design.) A common wall separates the house from space for a small business. In the past, the home's owners operated a dog boarding kennel, which had a separate entrance with an office/reception area and 10 indoor/outdoor dog runs as well as two large fenced areas in the backyard. This part of the home could be converted into the business of your choice. The partially finished basement has two main rooms with baseboard heat, as well as a separate laundry room and a storage room. There is a patio door out to another small deck with steps leading up to the main deck. These rooms could be used for exercise, music-making, or other hobbies – just imagine the possibilities. Close to shopping, dining, entertainment, historic homes, and artists’ retreats, not to mention hiking, tubing, swimming, skiing, and everything else wonderful about living upstate. This home has all of the peace, quiet, and privacy of a rural retreat, yet is conveniently located just minutes from NYS Thruway Exit 19 from the lively towns of Woodstock and Saugerties, as well as the city of Kingston with all its amenities.
