Take Me Home, Country Road, to this Awesome ‘Gunks Home: $950K

  |  January 5, 2023

What better place for a log cabin than in the woods of New Paltz, near world-class Mohonk and Minnewaska hiking trails? Today’s house tour has it all—but at a price nearing a mil.

Drive up a long, private driveway to this 2,553-square-foot home.

It’s got a front deck that leads to a covered front porch.

Sure, all that wood equals some serious maintenance, but the distant Shawangunk mountain views make it worthwhile.

Inside is an open-concept great room that embraces log-home living. A vaulted ceiling is covered in wood planking that covers all the walls. A wood stove keeps things toasty when winter winds howl.

The woodwork here is admirable.

The kitchen strays (in a good way) from the wood-grain look with a U-shape of pale cabinets topped with white countertops, ending in a peninsula for dining. Stainless-steel appliances and an undermount sink are classy touches. Next to the kitchen is an open dining area, with three glass doors that open…

…to a pergola-topped side porch that wraps around to the front and back of the house.

Back inside, this wooden-walled room is right off the kitchen. It’s got a cedar closet and a vaulted ceiling.

Another bedroom has painted walls and casement windows with views of the woods.

The two bedrooms share this tiled bathroom that has a tub/shower combo. We’re digging that steampunk vanity.

The primary bedroom is also on the main level. It’s got painted walls that are easy to change if the new owner doesn’t like blue. The ceiling here is vaulted, too, and there’s a bay window with lush forest views. Double closets flank the entrance to the ensuite bath.

And it’s a doozy. Marble floor tiles and white walls are a great backdrop for a double vanity in soft blue. Mirrored medicine cabinets surround a tall window. The toilet is in its own room.

Excuse us while we spend all day in this shower. What a gorgeous setup, with glass doors, marble walls, and a stunning shower system that includes a separate hand shower.

Heading downstairs, you’ll go down a short flight of varnished wooden stairs that stops off…

…at this 30′-by-30′ recreation room. It’s got a closet and a bank of windows.

If you hang a right heading down the stairs, you’ll hit a few steps that continue down…

…to this carpeted bedroom that has an interesting ceiling.

The ensuite here has a nice corner shower and is half-tiled.

The detached, two-car garage is roomy and painted inside, with walls of shelving and a staircase.

Up top is this finished flex space with propane heat, water, and sewer service.

The house is on 15.5 acres and is just five minutes from stellar hiking trails. Five minutes east finds you in the heart of New Paltz and its shops and restaurants.
