150 Valli Road, West Park, NY 12493
Set in the wooded hills west of the Hudson and east of the Catskills, this serene estate borders the John Burroughs Nature Preserve. With its picturesque pond and wide open meadow views it is quiet and secluded, yet only 15 minutes drive from the bustling City of Kingston. Along with its four large bedrooms (two on each floor) and its spacious design, the house also features a wrap-around arcade - a passageway with a wall of windows - where the outdoors wraps itself around you with splendid views of the sloping lawns. The country feel of the wood paneling and quarried stone fireplace is accentuated by new vintage-style appliances in the kitchen and bathrooms, suggesting a connection to the days when Walt Whitman, Henry Ford, and Theodore Roosevelt walked these woods in the company of Burroughs. But there is nothing rustic about the modern conveniences of radiant heat, central air and many other up-to-date features that make this a comfortable and welcoming home. Additional acreage available.
