With an eye for detail, this hillside home was lovingly renovated, allowing for maximum light from its southern exposure and eye-popping views. To that end, the house was laid out "upside down", with public spaces upstairs, and the large bedroom down. The sleek kitchen features a stainless steel Bosch refrigerator and dishwasher, and the Jenn-Air gas range includes a grill. Maple cabinetry is enhanced by soapstone counter.
Oak floors warm this central space beneath a cathedral ceiling punctuated with tension wire supports. The French doors facing front both allow the room to be flooded with light, and also open onto a balcony that is a perfect spot for unwinding. During cooler months, the uber-cool Morso wood stove, with glass front, provides all the ambiance, with really efficient heat production. A rounded wall clad in corrugated steel provides a little edge to the home's contemporary design.
The full bathroom is on the other side of that curved wall, and also boasts a soapstone counter, and pretty crackled tile in the tub/shower.
The spacious 14 x 16' bedroom dominates the lower level, and has its own exterior access. The utilities, laundry and substantial storage space is also on this level and can be accessed from outside as well as in.
Located up Lackawack Hill, which slopes down to the spectacular 3 square mile Rondout Reservoir, this home requires minimal outdoor maintenance. Most of the 1.74 acres is wooded hillside, with dramatic rock outcroppings and a pretty trail that runs through it. There is a fenced-in area in front of the house, perfect for your vegetable garden, to as a spot to let Spot hang out unattended.
