This custom-built Arts&Crafts style home combines the best of contemporary open-plan architectural elements of cathedral ceilings and open loft with a Craftsman Style design that feels like HOME. Privately setback above the bucolic Denver-Vega county road this charming residence is perched on a massive boulder retaining wall and includes 6.5 acres of forested mountainside, a pond, and nicely landscaped yard and gardens. The front porch offers views across the Denver-Vega Valley to the mountains lining the Batavia Kill Stream and a matching back porch looks up the hill to ancient stone walls that lined former farm pastures. This well-designed home is virtually new-construction since it was planned as a family retreat but was never occupied and construction is just now being completed. Walking in off the long covered front porch you enter a lofty living room open to the kitchen/dining room below the upstairs open loft. The kitchen has top quality maple cabinetry, color flecked composite counters and all new appliances with a dining alcove next to sliding glass doors to the big covered porch in back perfect for the grill master. There are beautiful hardwood bamboo floors throughout. Two bedrooms and bath are downstairs and the upstairs master-bedroom has a luxury ensuite spa bath. Next to the master bedroom is the adjoining open loft overlooking the living room below. It's perfect for a home office or den where a sofa-bed would offer additional sleeping room. All rooms have ample closets and the rear bedroom downstairs has a sliding glass door opening to the rear covered-porch. The downstairs full bath is tiled with elegant details and smartly styled wash-stand. Up the handsome hardwood craftsman staircase and banister you come to the landing with the open loft to your left and an airy master bedroom with cathedral ceilings and walk-in closet on the right. The master spa bath with jetted soaking tub and a tiled open shower with beautiful creekstone floor has dual sinks set into the composite countertop flecked with colored glass. The finished basement offers another floor of space for a game room and separate home theater space and guest quarters. The house is close to the ski slopes of BELLEAYRE and PLATTEKILL, Hanah Golf Course and state forests for hiking, hunting and bird watching are nearby. Fishing streams and the Pepacton Reservoir are also nearby as are charming villages with farm to table restaurants and craft distillery.
