Property Description

Mid-century home nestled among 2k+ acres of state forest minutes to Tanglewood

If you are looking for a quiet woodland retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city, this is the place for you. Located equal distance from New York City and Boston (2.5 hours from each), this mid-century home is set among more than 2,000 acres of state forest. Secluded on a dead end dirt road with only two other houses, this home makes for a perfect family getaway.

The house is approximately 2,500 square feet and features 4 bedrooms and an additional sleeping loft with its own second mini kitchen. There are 3 bathrooms (1 full and 2 3/4). It's an upside down house, which means the master bedroom and one other bedroom are on the lower level, and the living room and kitchen are on the upper level. This design maximizes the views from the living and dining areas which place you right up in the trees. The house is on a hill, so you enter the house over a land bridge on the upper level, but also have a door leading from the master bedroom to the back yard on the lower level.

The house was remodeled in 2014/early 2015 and features hardwood floors, a vaulted ceiling in the living room, 2 fireplaces, a baby grand piano, a sun-filled solarium, family room with 55" LED SmartTV, gardens with outdoor pergola seating area, 2 outdoor decks, a master bedroom with a glass door opening to the outdoors, a children's room with 1 full size bed and 1 crib, guest room #1 with Queen bed, and guest room #2 with full sized bed and twin bunk beds. The house has a wi-fi + Airpplay enabled stereo system with built-in speakers throughout the house. High speed wi-fi internet is included. Washer and Dryer. There is a seasonal stream on the property, and lots of hiking trails within a few minutes drive. There is a Weber 3-burner gas grill on the deck that overlooks the gardens, and an outdoor eating table for summer BBQs.

The house is located on Fog Hill about 8 miles outside the hamlet of Austerlitz, NY in Columbia County. It's in the Berkshire foothills (sometimes referred to as the Taconic Hills in NY), and lies at an altitude over 1,500ft., which makes it naturally air conditioned in the summer.

The kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, dishes, glasses, utensils, small and large appliances, and pretty much anything you will need to make your meals. There's an excellent supermarket in neighboring Chatham, called The Price Chopper, which has an enormous selection of local and organic produce and meat, as well as all the other staples. There are also dozens of local farm stands in the area where you can buy seasonal produce directly from area farmers.

To the east, our neighboring town is West Stockbridge, MA -- the site of Alice's Restaurant and the Arlo Guthrie Foundation church (3 miles away). Go a little further and you'll be in Lenox, MA -- home to Tanglewood, the summer residence of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. It's a short drive to all major Berkshires attraction, including Jacob's Pillow, Mt. Greylock and Great Barrington. To our west is the Hudson Valley, a vibrant and thriving community of organic farmers, artists, antiques dealers and winemakers. The town of Hudson (25 minutes away) has been called the "new Williamsburg" because so many artisans have fled the overpriced burg in Brooklyn and set up workshops and stores on the historic Warren Street in Hudson. If you like antique stores, French cafes and gourmet dining, there's a lot to explore. There are dozens of state parks within a 45 minute radius that offer hiking, swimming, boating, mountaineering, fishing and more.
