About 544 South Mountain Road
Modern, and completely at peace with its surroundings, this home is a composition of classic barn and house shapes, tied together with stained vertical cedar siding and metal roofing. The winding gravel driveway leads into a realm of tall oaks and maples, shading the front of this 12.6 acre property, the perfect setting for a country get-away. An extensive back deck overlooks the grassy field and meadow behind the house, and includes a covered lounge area with recessed lighting and an 8-person hot tub, perfect for stargazing. Bluestone pavers lead to the 50x25 foot in-ground swimming pool. The flexible floor plan of the home includes a fully equipped 1-bedroom apartment with a dedicated entrance above the 2-car garage. Large glass entry doors open to a spacious foyer, beyond which you'll find a fabulous entertaining space with polished concrete floors, a 72" Argentine wood/gas grill or "quincho," and walls of glass that neatly slide away to create a seamless indoor/outdoor experience. This room is perfect for dinners or parties that spill out onto the deck, while radiant heat ensures this space is cozy in the cooler months as well. The home's main living area features oak floors, built-in speakers, and a casual open floor plan. A gourmet kitchen with quartz counters, 6-burner stove, walk-in pantry, and large island is adjacent to the light-filled dining area, which opens to the back deck. A vaulted ceiling, stone fireplace, cozy wood stove, and knotty pine feature wall make for an inviting retreat in the sunken living room. The main house's four bedrooms include a primary with ensuite bathroom, and a shared hall bathroom with soaking tub. Downstairs, the walk-out basement is outfitted for fun and function, with laundry and storage, a half bath, and media-room outfitted with an overhead movie projector, 91" screen, and surround sound. 9 mini-splits throughout the house provide heat and cooling. The towns of Gardiner and New Paltz are nearby for shopping, dining, drinks, and farm stands. Minnewaska, Sam's Point and Mohonk Preserve trails beckon for biking or hiking. Day trips to local breweries, cideries and concert venues won't disappoint. Call to book a showing today and view this special property.
