This Mountainside Compound Has All the Light and Space You Need, $969K

A main house, two guest houses, and 2.5 acres of land come with this Woodstock retreat situated on mountain overlooking the Ashokan Reservoir.

An Ashokan Reservoir overlook is one of the rarer views in Ulster County, NY. The land surrounding the pristine source of drinking water is state-protected, and the residential properties are spread out and separated by swathes of lush, natural landscapes. Situated on a 1,000-foot rise, this Contemporary compound makes that rarefied view available from multiple vantage points.

Main House

The added bonus of all those windows letting in all those views? They also allow in a wash of natural light, illuminating the main house’s 3,890-square-foot interior. Throw open the living room sliders and invite the outside in.

The kitchen provides plenty of room to exercise your home chef skills, with a stainless steel six-burner oven, double ovens, and tons of under-counter space.

In addition to the living room, the handicap-accessible master bedroom offers occupants entrance onto the brand-new deck that faces the Ashokan.

Follow the deck to the far end sliders to the indoor, heated resistance pool. Its solarium-like enclosure will make you feel like you’re living at the spa.

Rounding out the main house is its crowning jewel: A second-floor great room with cathedral ceilings, skylights, knotty-pine wood walls, and gas fireplace.

Welcome, Lucky Guests

Dancing Angel Cottage is guest house number one. Laid out with an open scheme with the Reservoir as its focal point, the light-filled cottage features lofted living room, wood stove, one bedroom, bath, and private deck.

Hummingbird Cottage is the property’s second guest house. Here, guests can avail themselves of the living room, bedroom, loft, bath, and deck. Don’t need two guest houses? Turn Hummingbird into the perfect artist’s studio, yoga space, or home office.

Location Perfection

Mountaintop living need to preclude you from the Catskills’ culture, shopping, live music, and food.

Less than 20 minutes to the north is lively Phoenicia village, and Kingston city is also just 20 minutes southeast of this property. No matter which direction you turn, you and your lucky house guests will be enveloped by all that the Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountains have to offer.
