Welcome to Paradise. The quarter mile drive leads to a sweeping, beautiful and tranquil 64 acre oasis with stunning year round views of Overlook Mountain. Complete privacy and peaceful surroundings. This beautiful property was created by Tomas Penning (The Bluestone Master) a pioneering Sculptor in the Woodstock Art Colony beginning in the 1930's. He continued to add to it over the next 5 decades. It consists of a majestic spring fed pond approximately 30 feet deep and 300 feet in length and 90 feet wide. His Stone Artist Studio is made from the Bluestone quarried from the land. The 1950's handmade bluestone "diamond in the rough" cottage, one room w/loft, walls of windows, large beams, stone patio has a rustic charm and a feel of the past. There is also a large detached garage, a Firehouse, a machine shop, and a main living Bungalow. Penning's home studio was known for amazing gatherings. These included a mecca for famed art enthusiasts and local stone quarrymen to Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, who offered critical support for the arts during the Great Depression and who spent countless times swimming in the pond in finding her peace and tranquility. The 1950's handmade bluestone "diamond in the rough" cottage, one room w/loft, walls of windows, large beams, stone patio has a rustic charm and a feel of the past. This property needs to be seen to be believed. There is lots of potential for development in this precious land. Listing courtesy of Pieta Williams, Halter Associates Realty.
