18 Starjem Drive, Saugerties, NY 12477
This is the one – Do. Not. Miss. It. The perfect modern Catskills home, in the perfect Catskills location. Set on 3.1 wooded acres, the property is perfectly located in West Saugerties, and offers easy access to downtown Woodstock, Saugerties, Kingston, Rhinebeck and all of the world-class amenities that the Catskills has to offer. Situated about 7 minutes to downtown Woodstock, this bold black barn-style home was just built in 2018. It sits at the end of a long driveway at the top of a hill and is surrounded by lush forests. It offers total privacy - set-back behind an acre of private woods. The home has amazing views of nature, offers incredible light as well as peace and quiet. The home is spacious and luxurious with modern amenities and systems, but it also maintains its authentic barn-like charm - right down to its standing seam metal roof, farmhouse sink and ship-lap details. Experience the dramatic entry with a stone foyer that opens up to vaulted 20’ ceilings in the main living space complete with an open cable staircase. Throughout the home, gorgeous wide-board flooring brings the feeling of the forest right under your feet. The kitchen is a cook’s dream with modern appliances as well as open shelving, subway tile and shaker-style cabinets. A floor to ceiling, stone fireplace is the perfect place to spend quality time after enjoying a meal in the picturesque dining area, or in the oversized porch (which offers both a screened-in area as well as an open-air sundeck). Enjoy the many common spaces, or retreat to one of the bedrooms spread across three levels of living. Skylights in the upper level bedrooms (and bathrooms!) further enhance the living experience. Then we need to discuss the fully finished, walk out lower level of the home. It offers plush carpet and boasts 9-foot ceilings, full window surround, open rec room, bonus room, laundry room (with slop-sink) and full-bathroom. It also has a walk out slider leading to a 1,000 SF bluestone patio and a giant, cleared, leveled backyard (complete with swing-set and fire pit area – ready for a pool, if the new owner desires). The outdoor spaces are just as inviting as the interior with string lighting at the bluestone patio, creating a space that is as spectacular at night as it is during the day. Designed for togetherness, shared meals, and adventure this home truly has everything you could desire. The construction of this home checks all the boxes, with no expense spared, including solid-core shaker-style doors, plenty of storage, keyless entry locks, in-ceiling speakers/Sonos as well as remotely operated thermostats, cameras and security system. Every aspect of this home has been taken to the next level, right down to the quality of the drinking water; the home is complete with a state of the art, Titan-engineered, water purification/filtration system with reverse osmosis. No matter what the earth produces, the water quality is protected and pure with a system that is carefree to operate. On top of all of this, the buyer will have the option to purchase (separately) the existing furnishings - allowing for seamless, plug-and-play transition to ideal Catskills living. You won't want to miss this one!!
