This cool country pad, as featured in the New York Times, is fabricated from shipping containers and perched with perfection near the top of a hillside clearing, overlooking a picturesque pond, with a memorable view of farmland and hills folding into one another out into the distant sky. The spectacular vista can be appreciated from the master bedroom, the main living area, and the guest bedroom. A long, cantilevered deck, accessible from two sets of sliders, is the go-to spot virtually yearround, because even in the winter, you'll want to sit in the Adirondack chairs and let the expansive panorama wash over you.
You'll drive up the winding dirt road and peel off where the driveway meanders through a pretty meadow, and ultimately through the gap in the stonewalls and up to the house. It's a simple, streamlined structure with sloping roof, and when you enter into the main living area, it feels open, welcoming and spacious. This open plan space starts with the kitchen, which has a large island with plenty of counter space, and has been designed with efficiency of space in mind. There is a breakfast bar, but I think you’ll be hard-pressed to want to turn your back to the incredible view.
The dining table sits in front of one of the sliding glass doors that leads out to the deck, so you can watch the light change, or weather roll in from a distance. At the other side of the main room, a modern, glass-fronted wood stove is a key amenity for the chillier months, and is surrounded by plenty of space for comfortable lounging.
There are two bedrooms, each accommodates a queen bed. The first bedroom is on the main floor, just off the living room through a sliding barn door, and has a very pleasant contemporary bathroom with tub/shower, en suite. A spiral staircase leads down to the guest bedroom, which is a cozy, generously-proportioned space, with walk-out slider. Another full bath with tub/shower is next to this bedroom. And tucked away nearby is the house's washer and dryer, and the house’s systems.
The views from inside will surely draw you out. Walk the rolling property; head down to the pond; and by all means, take a dip from the dock (temperatures permitting of course!). Crystal clear water reaching a depth of 14’ at its deepest, provide a blissful swimming experience, with skating in winter.
This property has been a successful year round vacation rental through our sister company, Red Cottage Inc., for a number of years.
Bully Hill Vista is in farm country, but only about 7 minutes to the business district of Callicoon, which includes one of the best Farmers' Markets in the county, not to mention a number of wonderful shops and eateries. Set on a dead end country road, the peace and quiet here is transformative, which, for many, is just what an Upstate getaway is all about.
