Not that we’re hoarders or anything, or even big packrats for that matter, but we’ve stockpiled our fair share of stuff that we probably don’t need all that much. And when we see a house like this that’s so clean and minimalist, it makes us want to explore our own minimalist nature and start stripping away the fat down to the clean, white, pristine bone. There’s certainly no fat in this 6 year old home. It’s energy efficient (passive solar thermal mass construction), wide open, and features the generous use of wood textures throughout (seriously, that wooden bathtub? We want to go to there). Lot size is close to 4 acres just east of Accord hamlet in Ulster County, and there’s plenty to see outside from the giant windows. As we’ve said before, why create an overly-fancy living space when the beauty of nature provides all the bell and whistle you need?
