An angular shape provides cathedral ceilings and space for huge windows in this Pawling Contemporary house on 38 acres. 

Dreaming of living your life in the spotlight? Skylights a-plenty light your way in the 2,078-square-foot interior, with a living room that skillfully mixes mid-mod and rustic sensibilities.

Opposite the stone wood stove is a bank of sliding glass doors begging to be open to invite the outdoors inside…

…and, the bonus room off of the living room would make a smashing art studio with even more skylights.

A sunroom/mudroom – also with skylights – brightens up the modern kitchen with butcher block counter tops and custom tile flooring…

…and the light spills out into the adjacent dining room. The other side of the mudroom opens onto a generously-portioned side patio perfect for outdoor entertaining.

The first floor includes a bedroom, and the master suite plus an extra bedroom/home office are on the second floor.


Last but certainly not least, this cool house sits on a big piece of land nearly forty acres in size mere steps from the Appalachian Trail and the Dover Oak, said to be one of the largest, if not the largest, oak tree on the Appalachian Trail. From the West Dover Road entrance to the trail, head west until you eventually reach Cat Rocks and the spectacular views facing east.

Situated north of Pawling, NY in Dutchess County, three miles from the Pawling Metro-North train station.
