Contemporary Retreat South of Phoenicia, NY, $599K

  |  July 12, 2021

Let’s flash back to the 1980s when asymmetry and skylights were all the rage. We love it, especially in this Phoenicia Contemporary home. 

This week on Upstater, we’re headed to the village of Phoenicia, situated in the Catskills about 15 miles west of Woodstock, NY. Its location at a crook in the Esopus Creek makes the smallish burg an increasingly-popular destination, with some great food, boutiques, and even well-renowned summertime vocal music festival, as well as close proximity to outdoor recreation. This five-acre property south of Phoenicia’s center offers the perfect place to experience it all, even if you have no plans to leave the house anytime soon.

The open-concept 1980s Contemporary includes a 1,798-square-foot interior with cathedral ceilings and windows a-plenty. All the better to see those glorious mountain views with, my dear. There are wood floors throughout the first floor…

…with the except of the kitchen, which is tiled. Access the sprawling deck through the light-filled dining area.

Off the living room is an extra room, perfect as a TV/media room or study with built-in shelving and a bar.

On the second floor is the home’s largest bedroom, which comes with glass sliders that open onto the second-floor balcony…

…while the second bedroom is down in the finished basement, as well as an office space and family room.

According to the listing, there are two separate parcels of land included in the sale. Keep the other one wild, or turn it into a second residence. Either way, the mountain views come with both. From here, Phoenicia village is less than three miles away.
