This Belleayre Ridge home is a truly remarkable find skillfully tucked away on 10 very private acres with magnificent views in every direction. This large 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom oasis is a unique architectural celebration of design, functionality and harmonious connection with the surrounding landscape. Dominating the living space and anchoring this home is a stone fireplace shaft that soars three floors with multiple flues to provide three fireplaces distributed on all levels. The living room fireplace was retrofitted with a woodstove insert. The first floor level consists of the living and dining room, galley kitchen and large deck as well as storage/utility room. The guest bedroom, bathroom and a mezzanine level study/entertainment lounge are on the second floor. On the third high up in this wonder of a cathedral gallery is the master suite with its own fireplace, stairs to a loft level master bathroom with Roman bathing stall, wooden electric sauna and access to the top level deck where magnificent views await.
Major renovations and upgrades were made to this home in 2004 and again in 2007. The first floor and top level decks were replaced. The roof was replaced. The entry way door and patio door to the deck were replaced. All 27 sky lights were replaced with modern high efficiency Velux ones. The exterior board and batten cladding of the house was replaced. There once was a mid-level deck which was converted to additional enclosed living space on the second level.
The galley kitchen has a new gas cook top, the ambient lighting is effective and the counter tops are butcher block; the wooden sauna in the master bathroom is electric. This is a bright, open and intriguing home located in a very desirable area of the Catskills Park. Ski Belleayre next door and hunt, fish, hike the multiple choices of recreational areas all within fifteen minutes of this home.
Nature lovers will enjoy the profusion of wild azalea around the property and along the private road up to the home. There are numerous species of wild flowers in the upper field and around the house varieties such as purple, red and white trillium, jack-in the pulpit and tiny wild orchids abound. There are wild blackberries, raspberries and strawberry patches. This is a very special place from which to enjoy the wonders of the Catskills Region.
