1925 BYRDCLIFFE COTTAGE and more ... in a perfect walk-to-town location. Completely private in a world of its own--tucked away on 2.5 pastoral acres woven with bluestone pathways and views of Mt. Guardian. This home typifies 1920s Woodstock when artists flocked to this mountain community to create... as they still do. Enter the rustic, light-filled eat-in kitchen with its reading nook and cozy woodstove. A small sunny bedroom--en suite with a wall of shelving for collections or toys--has a charming Dutch door to the outside. A spacious second full bath with a deep soaking tub adjoins the master bedroom at the end of the hallway. The Great Room, with soaring vaulted ceiling and chestnut wood beams, was built with wood from indigenous trees harvested on the property. Bookcase-lined walls and creative storage cabinetry were crafted by a local artisan. With its north-facing artist's window overlooking the lush meadow and woods beyond, this home is an original Byrdcliffe artist’s studio, once owned by a well-known Woodstock ceramicist. The brick fireplace and 2 Dutch doors that lead to private stone patios with original stone barbeque add to the timeless charm. The Dining “Room” feels separate, yet is part of the Great Room, offering an open setting for entertaining. A stairway leads to a third bedroom/office that overlooks the landscape. In 2011 a separate 535-sq.-ft. 1-bedroom, 1 bath accessory apartment/art studio with an amazing 30x24-foot garage was built under the design of Woodstock architect Les Walker. This efficient space is equipped with a mini-kitchen and sliders that open to a deck for easy escape to the outdoors, where a stone walkway leads to the main house. The contempo feel of this self-contained unit is enhanced by the customized (built-into-the-walls) 7.1 multimedia audiovisual system. In recent years, the owner has carved out a gorgeous park-like property that features a variety of specimen trees, extensive bluestone patios (with installed outdoor sound speakers) and walkways. An inviting circular driveway surrounding a flowering Yoshina cherry tree provides a dramatic welcome to all who visit this special place.
