213 Vly Atwood Road, Stone Ridge, NY 12484
The magnificent minimal simplicity of this one-level modern home is enhanced by its privacy and superb location in the historic town of Stone Ridge. It’s rare to encounter a site with the perfect combination of meadow and woods and stone walls like this one. The house is sited on the land to take maximal advantage of the surrounding beauty and to capture the best of the sun’s light as it crosses the sky in all seasons. The core of the home is its generously proportioned great room, which encompasses kitchen, living and dining areas. Wrapped in walls of glass, the line between indoors and outdoors blurs, offering all sorts of visual treats in all sorts of weather. There’s a wood-burning stove at one end of the space for an added touch of warmth and atmosphere, and the soaring wood-clad ceilings add a sense of volume without the home losing its inherent intimacy. Anyone who enjoys cooking will love the well-equipped kitchen, with custom slate blue cabinetry, quartz countertops and a full complement of Thermador appliances. The spacious primary bedroom suite includes a walk-in closet and plenty of space for a comfortable sitting or work area. It opens directly to the deck and heated gunite pool, as does the great room. The ensuite bathroom is spa-chic and done in crisp black and white. Two additional bedrooms, one with built-in bunk beds, share another highly designed bathroom. Pale wide-board wood floors and white walls run throughout the home, adding to the soothing nature of the space while offering a neutral backdrop for any design scheme. Apart from the pool, other outdoor treats include a bocce court, firepit, dining pergola and a shed to store gear. While just minutes from local services in town, the property is near to Inness, Westwind Orchard, Arrowood Brewery, Ollie’s Pizza, and outdoor activities at Mohonk and Minnewaska.
