  |  January 14, 2020

Fans of minimalist Scandinavian design will go wild for this jaw-dropping property nestled in the Catskill Mountains between Phoenicia and Woodstock. 

This stunning 8.4-acre mountain compound has it all: a gorgeous timber-frame main house curated by the New York City-based designer-owner, a gravity-defying sky bridge leading to a private viewing platform, and two “tiny cabins” created as a collaboration between the owner and a renowned builder.

The three-bedroom, 1,444-square-foot main house sits pretty in the woods thanks to its on-trend black paint job, Scandinavian blond wood decking, and low, meandering stone walls along the driveway.

Compound in the Catskill Mountains

Inside the house, the spacious layout is defined by clean, simple lines—the owner’s ode to the classic summer houses of Scandinavia. The shared kitchen, living room, and dining room boast warm-hued hardwood floors perfectly contrasted by the crisp white wood plank ceiling and exposed beams above.

A modern wood stove tucked into the corner of the room combined with the floor-to-ceiling views of the surrounding mountains imbue the main gathering space with chic chalet-style vibes.

The gourmet kitchen is a chef’s dream, outfitted to the nines with stylish wood cabinetry, a marble-topped island, Wolf range and refrigerator, and a Miele dishwasher. The spacious walk-in pantry is accessible by a set of sleek glass and metal doors.

Gorgeous views from the master bedroom in the main house of this compound in the Catskill Mountains

The large master bedroom with its en-suite bathroom has equally stunning views of the outdoors.

Large glass doors connect the bedroom to a private “spa-deck” outside, where a cozy, hand-built cedar hot tub awaits.

Outside, the otherworldly viewing platform sits suspended among a trio of pine trees, offering space to sit back and contemplate the breathtaking view of the mountains and forest floor 25 feet below.

This compound in the Catskill Mountains has two "tiny cabins" for guests to stay at

The nearby “tiny cabins” offer the owner’s bold, design-forward take on the tiny house concept—perfect for anyone who wants to escape to the woods and glamp in style or set up a yoga studio for the ultimate in relaxation and retreat. The classic A-frame is the inspiration for one of the cabins, which has been distilled into an uber-modern, geometric shape. Though it clocks in at an intimate 180 square feet, a wall of windows on one side and 13-foot ceilings make the interior feel expansive.

Whether you’re hosting a group of incredibly lucky friends or simply aiming for a solo retreat in the woods, this property is ready for weekends spent soaking up your new mountain views and reveling in the comfort of a well-curated space.
