Reason to rent: Exciting modern design with swimming pool (in season).
Inspired by the elegant simplicity of Scandinavian summer houses, and named after an attempt by the owner’s family to trek to Everest Basecamp, this exciting modern build was completed in 2018. Approached by way of a 800-foot gravel driveway that meanders through the woods, Basecamp’s striking black facade emerges in a clearing that opens to include a view of Overlook Mountain.
The interior is sleek and uncluttered; with a Zen vibe that permeates the entire experience in the house and on the grounds. Thanks to a dramatic glass wall of sliders that runs along the entire main living area, natural light floods the open concept space, presenting occupants with expansive vistas of the property, as well as of the 65-foot long heated swimming pool with stone terrace just outside the door. All the while Overlook is a presence that reflects changing light throughout the day.
In terms of design, the kitchen (and the whole house, for that matter) is a minimalist’s dream, with high-end Thermador appliances disappearing behind integrated custom panels. The oven has a warming drawer, and there is an induction cooktop. At the same time, foodies will relish the long fields of unobstructed counter space on which to create their culinary masterpieces.
The lounge area is a welcoming gathering spot for relaxing and reconnecting, where movies can be shown on the projector and where wintertime’s counterpoint to the seasonal lure of the pool is the fireplace.
Two bedrooms sleep three each, with upper lofts reached by ship’s ladders. The master has a king-size bed and private en suite bath with a spacious walk-in shower. A second bath off the main hallway has a deep soaking tub. In warmer months, guests can opt to shower al fresco in an outdoor vestibule just off of the main bath. Out by the pool’s terrace is a Wolf grill with a gas connection, so no running out of propane before the ribs are done!
Air conditioned for hot days, and radiant floor-heated for cold nights, Basecamp is all about comfort, style, and amenities. The ultra-private 19-acre setting is blissfully peaceful, while less than a ten minute jaunt to the desirable goings-on in Woodstock and Saugerties. Hunter Mountain is a 30-minute drive.
