As you turn onto the long driveway that ushers you into this bucolic setting, you'll find yourself leaving behind the daily 'hustle' and begin to embrace this magical homestead! The wooded entry opens onto a Park-like setting: manicured meadow, fenced pastures, landscaped......prideof ownership is evident! This modern Ranch has an open covered porch wrapping around two sides, perfect place to start the day with your morning beverage, or evening refreshment as you watch the sun set over the Shaupeneak Ridge, almost 800 acres of protected recreational forest within a short walk! The 2005 ranch is drenched with sunlight, and thanks to the setting can boast a picture from every window, no window treatments needed here! The generous living room is the center of the home, with tray ceiling, skylights, wood burning fireplace and french doors opening onto a covered back porch. Inviting kitchen with 'top of the line' stainless appliances, lots of cabinets including a pantry, center island with seating and finished with granite counter top. Open dining room, adjacent to kitchen, is the perfect place for all your indoor entertaining. Thoughtful design delivers a half bath, and laundry room with slop sink entering from the side door, which compliments the outdoor living flavor of this setting. Primary Bedroom Suite is separated from the other 2 bedrooms... walk in closet, full bath with shower and jetted tub ,plus a French Door that leads out to the covered porch overlooking the pasture and mountain to the west.....like waking up on vacation....everyday! Two additional bedrooms and full bath complete this user friendly floor plan. Sturdy Bamboo flooring, hot wate rbaseboard heat and central air conditioning support comfortable living. Large walk out basement, with high ceiling would be easy to finish for home theatre, playroom... perhaps a studio! Gently nestled on the north side of the acreage you'll discover a very tidy 6 (+/-) stall barn, complete with water, electric and cameras. Tack/office space and an additional 'dry storage' area for feed! Barn leads to 3 fenced pastures and riding ring. Completely set up for horses! Although, if horses aren't your thing....the level pastures could be farmed, or build your own recreational compound...perhaps pool, tennis and basketball courts....the choice is yours! This convenient location is within 20 minutes of New Paltz (Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska), Poughkeepsie (Walkway over the Hudson and Metro North) and Kingston (The Strand on the Rondout Creek). Close to local farm stands, wineries, restaurants and distilleries. Enjoy the convenience and beauty the Hudson Valley has to offer!
