Half-Log Cabin, Half-Modern Loft, 100% Cool in Marbletown, NY, $549K

This Ulster County modern loft is a work-of-art, hidden on a forested 4.3 acres…

Thanks to the wonders of the digital age, however, we don’t have to wait for an open house to see the coolest log cabin this side of the Hudson River. Wood, steel, and glass meld together to create a truly singular interior, so without further ado, let’s take the nickel tour…

You might’ve noticed the steel beams holding together all that wood and glass. According to the listing, those beams were repurposed from an NYC loft, bringing a sprinkle of urban industrial flare to this contemporary log cabin. But, unlike those rustic cabins upon which this cottage is based, it’s quite spacious at 2,133 square feet and outfitted with a chef’s dream of a stainless steel Sub-Zero and Bosch kitchen with soapstone counter tops, spa-like bath fixtures including soaking tub and limestone tile, Wittus Trendline free-standing wood stove in the living room, and security system. Dare we say it? Oh, what the hell: This is not your grandfather’s log cabin.

Includes two bedrooms on the second level of the house, one of which is a master en suite. The second level is a loft level, open to the lower level, and bordered on one side by a two-story wall of glass.

The lower level comes with an additional full bath, studio, laundry room, and access to the ground-floor poured-concrete patio, where you can sit and watch the trees languidly sway in the breeze.

Located in total seclusion less than 4 miles from the charming, historic hamlet of Stone Ridge. Rumor has it that you will get views of Mohonk Mountain from here, and outdoor attractions like Mohonk Preserve, Minnewaska State Park, Awosting Reserve, and all of the Catskill Park are practically at your door step.
