We’re torn. We don’t know what to love more: The mountain views from the in-ground saltwater pool, or the stylish, open interior of the house itself. Doesn’t matter. This Contemporary Woodstock retreat is aces inside and out. We also love the timber-frame living room that flows through the adjoined kitchen and dining room, with picture windows, built-in bookshelves, and a cool ladder on wheels for accessing the top shelf. The screened-in porch provides even more lounging space with views.
Bold colors mingle with hand-hewn wood beams, deftly blending rustic warmth with modern appeal. And, the house, which sits on nearly 5 acres of land near both the Ashokan Reservoir and Woodstock village, comes with its own generator. After all, this is still the Catskill Mountains.
