Today, Upstater is in Greenwood Lake in the Town of Warwick, at a two-bedroom dream home that’s surrounded by lake views.
Harvesting ice for New York City was a big industry in Greenwood Lake in the 19th century; the Mountain Ice Company predated the home on this site. The renovated Ice House and historic Cove Castle restaurant are just down the road from here. This house was built in 1947, and although it’s undergone some alterations over the years, some of it could use an overhaul.
The front door opens to a wood-and-granite kitchen. Stained-glass pendants hang by the sink.
Shaker-style cabinetry fills the kitchen and hangs over the peninsula.
Painted wood-plank ceilings continue from the kitchen into the dining room.
The living room is open to the dining room. Wood trusses line the peaked ceiling here, and an iron wood stove sits against a stone wall. Sliding glass doors next to the stone wall open up…
…to a glass-enclosed sunroom with a green glass roof. And next to this sunroom…
…is another. Both are enveloped in lake views.
The listing shows just one bedroom, although it advertises the property with two. This one has a wall of windows and a big closet.
The house has a half-bath and this full bath, which has a shower with glass doors. White tiles cover the floor around the toilet and top the vanity, too.
A laundry room has space for a washer and dryer (and stock of liquor, too).
The property measures just under a quarter-acre. Multiple outdoor decks let you soak up the sun and entertain. A dock allows easy lake access, and there’s also a detached garage.
The house sits on a peninsula, not an island, and it’s an easy drive to the plentiful marinas and restaurants (like Emerald Point) that line the lake. Great shopping (and spectacular restaurants like Grappe Ristorante in downtown Warwick is just under a half-hour’s drive, and you can get to the George Washington Bridge in less than an hour.
