Here is the epitome of contemplative quiet & beauty, a perfect blend of modern functionality with traces of an original hand-crafted rustic artist's home. Years of thoughtful cultivation have created perennial gardens that compliment the trees and sky which surround the homes sapphire blue heated saline pool. This pool always seems to magnify and reflect the sky and greenery of the surrounding landscape. The compound is tucked away on a private lane nestled privately behind an artist-made electric gate. The home and property have been continuously and meticulously maintained meeting the high standards of today's discerning buyer. Upon entering the gated drive the eye is drawn to the zen simplicity of the home's outline belieing the actual size of the house within. One steps into a well lit bluestone entry hall and then into the original living room. This is a comfortable, bookshelf-lined, cozy room banked by windows highlighted by a graceful bluestone fireplace. From here one steps down to a newer addition including the kitchen, office, dining room and quietly spectacular living room. There are floor to ceiling windows, with nothing but the 20 x 38 foot pool and lush landscaping as far as the eye can see.The dining room table easily seats large dinner parties while also welcoming just one or two to the table. The cook's kitchen has kept the identity of art colony cabinetry while having been updated. Handmade tiles have been imported from France to cover the generous counter-tops and there are high end appliances one expects- a Dacor Gas Range, Meile Dish Washer & refrigerator. There is also the office & half bath just off this area, directly overlooking the pool and opening out to the gardens and studio building beyond. This sturdy arts & crafts feeling building, houses a good sized screened porch room with ping pong table and perfect for summer reading & napping retreats. The actual year round studio used by the painter in this family views the woods and is well lit with high ceilings. Here is an oasis within an oasis! Back in the house, the ground level master bedroom suite is a world unto itself! A generous dressing room, or private sitting room, adjoins the bedroom and large master bath with both a spacious shower and an over-sized Jacuzzi soaking tub. The master bedroom is the perfect room in which to awake each morning to its tranquil view of woodland fantasy. In good weather with windows open, the birds sing welcoming one back from deep country peaceful nights sleep. The two guest bedrooms are separately located on the raised second level of the home. Both are generously sized and share a recently renovated bath with handsome touches of stone & marble. This is a home that welcomes gatherings of all ages, basks in sunlight and is nourished by the historic and ageless Byrdcliffe energies! The main property has an almost invisible deer fencing all around it.
