About 735 County Route 6
WOW - privacy and water and views in a fabulous location! This spacious contemporary home enjoys the perfect combination of open and forested land, one of the most beautiful and healthy ponds this veteran agent has ever seen, and majestic views of the Catskill Mountains. The privileged location is just on the edge of the much-desired Clove Valley and so close to the Mohonk Preserve. The open plan kitchen/living/dining areas enjoy a lovely flow, exposed brick walls and those staggering mountain views. One bedroom, a study and a full bath complete the first floor. A second bedroom, exercise room and full bath upstairs are adjacent to the beamed and vaulted artist's studio, which would make for an opulent primary suite. There's a small walk-up attic, great for storage or a playroom. The home's unique architectural feature, a Trombe wall, absorbs thermal energy and meaningfully contributes to energy efficiency, and forms a dramatic entry gallery that could be a magical plant-filled oasis. The wrap-around deck faces the vast lawn, the pond and the view, and about 8 acres of invisible dog fencing.There's room here for a pool complex, tennis court, guest house and likely even more. There's an island in the pond, accessible by a short footbridge, and there you'll find a wood-fired sauna. The pond itself teems with fish and plant life, attesting to the health of its ecosystem. Apart from local natural wonders, this special property is just up the hill from historic High Falls, and near to Inness, Westwind, Arrowood, Ollie's Pizza and a load of local shops, restaurants and farms.
