This private oasis, affectionately referred to by its current owners as Riverbend, is tranquil and serene. This mini estate which is nestled on an exquisite 2000 ft stretch of the Kaaterskill Creek was, in the 1890's, a sawmill powered by that creek. It is now a meticulously updated, spectacularly beautiful home boasting a brand new custom, saltwater-heated, Gunite pool and a stunningly designed guest cottage. Both homes are sumptuously appointed with high-end European-style copper gutters and Restoration Hardware outdoor light fixtures. Entering into the main house you are greeted by a gorgeous foyer and unique floor tiles. The custom chef’s kitchen takes your breath away with locally hand-crafted cabinets, marble counter tops, subway tile, Newport Brass fixtures, an imported English farm sink, Blum hardware, walk-in pantry and Wolf stove. The large dining area is set just off the kitchen and leads out to a wraparound deck with cable railings that offer no impediment to the views of nature, the landscaped backyard and the creek. The sunken living room is simultaneously bright, spacious and invigorating during the summer months and also warm, cozy and charming during the winter months as you gather around the wood stove. The Den provides another wonderful space for relaxation and entertaining complete with gas fireplace. Upstairs, the master suite is a dream, with beamed, vaulted ceilings, large closets, a dressing area and an en suite bathroom with large soaking tub. The guest bedroom is well-sized will a full bath located nearby, giving guests the feeling that they have their own suite. The guest cottage is sleek and alluring with smooth lines and warm colors. This extraordinary 1 bedroom /1 bath abode creatively incorporates oak floors, beamed ceilings, French doors, gas fireplace and efficient kitchen. It too has a wraparound deck overlooking the beautiful Kaaterskill. Also on the property is a custom cedar outdoor shower, large period barn with bike port, and a garden shed. The grounds are impeccably maintained with bluestone walkways, creek access, stone walls, luscious landscaping and privacy fencing. Included is a 3.5 acre parcel of buildable wooded land that is located directly across the street from the home. Build or just enjoy having extra privacy. All this is located within minutes to Catskill, Saugerties, Woodstock, Hudson, Hunter Mountain and 2 hours from NYC.
