Cold Creek has evolved over decades, starting as a cabin, which encompassed the two wood-paneled downstairs bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and living room with stone fireplace. Then in the early sixties, a more midcentury vibe was added on with the new entrance, the two car garage, and the two large en suite bedrooms that are a half level up. The current owners then added the sun room / great room at the back, and the two decks that flank it, maximizing the enjoyment of the dramatic Jersey Brook that tumbles its way through the woods, and then by the back of the house, wrapping around the side, eventually flowing under the road and pouring into the Beaverkill River across the street.
The entrance foyer has a cool midcentury vibe and ample coat closet space, and the split-level staircase leading to the two upper bedrooms. Beyond that is a staircase down to the attached garage, followed by a laundry room with slop sink. At the end of this entry area is a door out to the back deck.
Upstairs the first bedroom is the master, featuring large picture windows on two exposures, affording wonderful views of this captivating creek. The spacious room includes enough space for a seating area, and the private bathroom has double sinks and a shower. The second upstairs bedroom also enjoys a creek view, and its en suite bathroom includes a tub/shower.
The public rooms are all off the other side of the entrance. An open concept wood-paneled space has at its heart a living room with stone fireplace. The retro style kitchen has a peninsula with breakfast bar. The two pine paneled rooms behind the kitchen have closets and could easily serve as bedrooms, but might also be useful as an office and a dining room. There is a small full bathroom with metal shower just off these bedrooms.
The great room, with its dramatic wall of windows, and sliders at either end, can be used year round. While there is no heat source in there (it could easily be added), it has been insulated, and a space heater does the job in winter for the current owner. There is little question but that one would live in this room, or alternatively on the decks at either side, to be near this wonderful brook and to be embraced by its soothing sounds. (This property is not in a flood zone, FYI.) I’m afraid these photos do not do it justice, but if it sounds intriguing, we would encourage you to make an appointment to visit.
