Cool Catskills Crescent Contemporary
3.8 Acres with Privacy, View, Pond and Stream
Spectacular Catskill Mountain Views line every room in this chicly planned single level contemporary home on nearly 4 pastoral acres in the very desirable Catskills Town of Roxbury. The unique angled-crescent design allows a wall of glass overlooking the meadow and pond and out across the forested mountain range. It’s like living in a Thomas Cole Landscape Painting with its magical transformation of scene with every change in the weather, season or sunlight. Whether its a bright blue-sky summer day, a misty spring morning haze, the dramatic golden autumn foliage, or the crystalline snowy scenes of winter, you are entranced with the ever evolving view across your window-walls of glass.
It takes your breath away as soon as you step through the front door into the open Great-Room with it’s high pitched ceilings and bluestone fireplace and that glass wall of magnificent scenery! You will never want to leave! It has that special feeling of being both stylishly modern but with a country-home coziness.
Simple Stylish Single Level Living!
The open-plan main room separates and joins the 2 spacious bedrooms, both with en suite baths, at opposite ends of the home allowing greater privacy. The kitchen is set to one side of the Great Room allowing for socializing with family and guests in the living room as meals are prepared. There is also a door to one bath from the Great Room so there is no need for guests passing through a bedroom. The spacious walk-in closet in the bedroom has been outfitted with California Closets clothing organization. And the bedroom and the Great Room have motorized Hunter Window Shades for privacy and warmth along the glass window walls. The 14X48 foot long sun deck stretches the entire length along the totally private back side of the Crescent House with those supreme views of the pond and mountains.
The entire residence has beautiful hardwood solid oak flooring and both remodeled bathrooms are tiled and have smartly appointed vanities. As the evening darkness falls we turn away from the landscape view from the window walls and turn our gaze to the interior front wall to enjoy the crackling fireplace in the beautiful floor to ceiling native-bluestone hearth. The wood burning fireplace has a quality cast-iron insert that provides for much improved and more efficient wood heating than the standard fireplace. The home is also heated by the super-efficient and programmable K-1 oil warm-air furnace which can be supplemented with baseboard electric heat in both bedrooms if needed. There is also a woodstove in the basement that provides more heating economy if desired.
Just a few feet off the town-maintained and dead-end Squire Hill Rd you have a 1-car detached garage for easy winter-snow maintenance. This is truly an easy to manage single level residence ideal for everyone!
The home is very private from all neighbors, and its surrounding gardens, meadow and trail down to the deep spring-fed swimming pond and the stream make the Crescent House a true “10” for all the features that discerning Catskill Househunters are looking for! Privacy, View, Pond and Stream! Only 5 minutes drive to the Round Barn Pakatakan Farmers Market; 5 minutes to Ski Plattekill and 25 to Belleayre Ski Center, the location is also a “10”. It’s midway between the charming villages of Margaretville and Roxbury for dining and shopping and only 2.5 hours drive from NYCs GW Bridge!
