Enjoy spectacular views of Tonche Mountain and the Southern Catksills from this unique lakeside property. This 1920s farmhouse was completely renovated in 2016 and is the only property located on Kenozia Lake. The 5 acre property is the original Zimmerman farm and includes a barn, huge yards and spectacular sunset views over the lake and mountain range. We are 10 minutes from Woodstock, 15 minutes from Phoenicia, 25 minutes from Belleayre Ski Mountain, and only 2 hours from Manhattan.
Our wonderful family home was thoroughly renovated last last year with updates throughout including a new gourmet chef's kitchen and four new bathrooms following a mid-century aesthetic. The house is built for fun and relaxation for your family, big or small.
The living room is a wonderful place for conversation or reading next to a warm fire while looking out the large windows onto Kenozia Lake and the mountains surrounding the house. The modern kitchen is made for entertaining and the antique French dining room table is perfect for feeding your family and friends. The front porch is large and has a dining table for twelve, allowing all to enjoy a meal outside during warmer days.
Our 5 acre yard is surrounded by preserved lands, so there are no neighbors in sight. Our 'backyard' is a huge cleared and open space, leaving room for many afternoons of soccer and football games. In the driveway we have a competition quality basketball goal that can be adjusted for all sizes and skill levels.
From our house, everything you need is within minutes while still feeling remote. The town of Woodstock is only 10 minutes away offering a wonderful combination of restaurants, boutiques, galleries, and the occasional drum circle for the more adventurous. In less than 10 minutes you can find the essentials of a large grocery store as well as a gourmet cheese and food shop that will compete with the best in NYC. Hiking can be found in almost every direction from the house and the ever impressive Ashokan Reservoir is a 10 minute drive. Everything you want to see and do in the Southern Catkskills is at your finger tips.
For those joining in the winter months, the Belleayre Ski Resort is 25 minutes from our house offering a great family ski experience without the staggering crowds of Hunter and Wyndham. The 2017-18 ski season should be even more exciting after $8 million of upgrades over the summer.
As you wind down your active day, you can relax in the family room with a state of the art TV system, Direct TV, and a huge collection of DVDs to relax on the big couch. Or, you can crack open the game closet and sit around the table for more family fun.
At bed time, the house can accommodate your family and friends. The master bedroom has a queen size bed, fantastic linens, and an inviting marble bathroom plus views of the lake and mountains from bed. The next two bedrooms have a king and queen bed, respectively. Finally, we have a double sized children's room featuring two sets of bunk beds with twins on top and fulls on the bottom; did we mention there is a table devoted to lego projects? In addition to the master bathroom, there are two full bathrooms on the second floor that were renovated last year.
Our house is a really special home, full of warmth, happiness, and joy. We always love our time here and are certain you will leave looking forward to your next visit.
