163 Malden Turnpike, Saugerties, NY, 12477-5071
This impressive 19th century farmhouse on two and a half pretty country acres has been beautifully and tastefully remodeled with its original charming essence carefully and appropriately preserved. The owner builder spared no expense in bringing this home to its ultimate best. The recently new roof is a 50 year architectural shingle, for example. The entire house has been converted to LED lighting by the owner - another example from a long list of changes and improvements.The bathrooms and kitchen are new and beautifully done with the best available appliances and fixtures. The master bedroom has a fireplace, large walk-in closet and bathroom with separate tub and shower - all new. The result is remodeling genius. The gleaming wood floors are new and beautiful. The house has been freshly painted inside and out. Den with pellet stove and the "dry bar any purpose" party and play room make the interior of this very special home a perfect choice for any buyer. The surrounding grounds are a bucolic country setting with lots of wildlife to capture one's attention, entertain and distract. There is plenty of parking, a two car garage and shop plus a separate one car garage. The real gem here is the fenced and totally private inground pool with bluestone terrace surround and beautiful new liner. It simply sparkles in the sunlight. This property is just minutes to the thruway and a short drive to Saugerties' great shops and restuarants, Woodstock, Catskill Villages, the Hudson River and Esopus Creek. Great hiking, biking, swimming, fishing and boating in summer and great skiing in winter is all here. One of the best restuarnts you will find anywhere is just a short bike ride away. This is a wonderful home and property. The owners’ comments about their home and property follow: It is hard to say what we like best about our home because we like, no, we love everything about it inside and out - the interior’s beautiful new baths and kitchen, new flooring and fresh paint, the peacefully serene bucolic country setting of flowers and trees and wildlife and, of course, our beautiful private pool. That we spared no expense in this creation is evident. We are proud of the result and pass it on to others only reluctantly. It is enormously pleasing to our senses and would be for anyone. It is for us a serene and peaceful paradise - country living at its best. Imagine, for example, morning coffee or an afternoon glass of wine on your rocking chair front porch, sitting in the sun by the pool with a book or a cocktail or both and a relaxing swim from time to time, and/or taking your kayak or canoe out on the nearby Esopus Creek or Hudson River and perhaps a short bike ride to one of the best restaurants you will find for dinner and then to sleep and to dream beautiful dreams. There is all of this and so much more! Come take a look.
