This is surely one of the most dramatic homes in the Red Cottage collection. Architect-designed, with expansive meadow and distant hill views, on twenty private acres, the three bedrooms are all en suite, with the master featuring a large, open shower and Japanese-style steeping tub, and two guest suites (each with glass-enclosed shower) enjoy privacy in a separate wing. One of the glass walls in the spacious master opens wide to a balcony for maximum enjoyment of the views...even from bed. Downstairs, the basement features a small exercise room with additional queen size bed, creating space for a fourth couple.

In the public portions of the house are a modern chef’s kitchen with breakfast bar, loads of counter space and pantry, and off that is a bluestone-floored dining room completely enclosed in glass, with doors that slide open to create more of an open air dining setting.

The sunken living room with leather wraparound banquette has a fireplace as its focal point, and the pool table and wet bar are nearby in the next room, for after dinner matches. Bluestone patios connect most of the ground floor rooms in the house, creating numerous comfortable spots from which to dine, lounge and simply soak in the unspoiled hilltop tranquility. The house is surrounded by picturesque meadows, and distant hill views, and there is a cool fire pit just beyond the patios, providing a perfect setting for memorable Catskills evenings.

Please note: The caretaker, who is very considerate and privacy-conscious, lives on the property.
