Recently completed new build in the heart of the scenic Beaverkill Valley. The open plan living/dining/kitchen space is wonderfully well-lit via numerous windows from two exposures and includes a Jotul wood stove in the corner. The new kitchen features an induction cook top and butcher block counter that doubles as breakfast bar.
French doors lead from this great room out to 700 square feet of wraparound covered porch, a portion of which is screened, for really pleasant al fresco dining. Views from the porch, living room, master and upstairs bedrooms extend over the pond and glimpse distant mountains.
Shiplap paneling has been whitewashed for a clean, country chic feel throughout the house, and is beautifully complemented by the warmth of hardwood floors throughout. There is a mudroom with plenty of space for your gear, and half bath near the entrance, followed by a separate office. The master suite is on the ground floor while three bedrooms, including a bunk room, a full bath and another lounge make up the second floor. The spacious 1,200 square foot basement with poured concrete walls features high ceilings, a laundry area, and has potential for finishing.
This house has been designed with energy efficiency in mind. The blown-in insulation creates a sealed envelope and an efficient environment for the electric heat, made even more so when the wood stove is factored in.
Outside, the garage has covered wood storage off to the side, as well as a spacious workshop. A brief walk through the woods leads to stunning Blueberry Meadow and two tennis courts that are all part of the communal land and amenities available through a Beaverkill Falls Homeowners Association membership. Also included are use of picturesque Quill pond, for swimming, access to one mile of premier fly fishing on the Beaverkill River, including the exceptionally dramatic Falls, and 40 miles of scenic hiking trails.
For many area homeowners, the Beaverkill community is the draw for living here. With an emphasis on outdoor pursuits, particularly fly fishing, and on environmental conservation, the atmosphere is social, if one desires that, and the opportunities to make meaningful friendships and share local activities contributes to so many buyers choosing this area.
