Nestled amidst the rolling hills of Woodstock, this private retreat offers an unparalleled sense of tranquility and incredible jaw-dropping views of the Catskill Mountains.

Imagine zoning out to mesmerizing mountain views and sounds of the nearby Sawkill Creek. This is just the beginning of what this property has to offer. With no neighbors in sight and embraced by seven acres of protected land managed by the Woodstock Land Conservancy, you’ll have an extra expanse of woods to explore, adding immeasurable long term value to your property without the added price tag and tax burden.

Located on a private paved road, you immediately feel a sense of exclusivity when turning onto Black Bear Lane. Despite its secluded feel, this home is just minutes from the vibrant village of Woodstock, offering the perfect blend of convenience and privacy. It’s a rare combination that few properties can boast, making this type of home and setting an exceptionally hard find.

Inside the main house, you’ll find a perfect blend of old-world charm and modern convenience. Two fireplaces, including one with a wood stove insert, add warmth and character to the space. High ceilings with wood beams, wood flooring, and other period details enhance the home’s appeal, creating a cozy retreat you’ll never want to leave.

One of the standout features of this property is the large detached three-car garage with an expansive studio space above. With its high ceilings and ample natural light, it’s a space that invites creativity and inspiration. Whether you’re an artist, musician, or filmmaker, this studio will be your haven, offering endless possibilities for expression.

But perhaps the most compelling reason to consider this home is its exceptional maintenance and care it has received over the years. With over 10 years of stewardship, every aspect of the property has been meticulously maintained and upgraded by the current owner, ensuring that it’s not just beautiful, but also functional and efficient. From insulation and efficiency upgrades to infrastructure and systems updates as well. Virtually all of the often ignored maintenance items have been done here, plus an updated kitchen and baths, new roof, new generator, driveway paving, chimney rebuild, EV charger, lighting improvements, and more. All that’s left to do is personalize and enjoy.

Located in an enclave of other impressive homes, this property offers the perfect blend of seclusion and community.
