Overview

About the property

One Of A Kind! 4 Bedrooms, 2 1/2 Baths, Radiant Heat, Endless Views

As you leave the oh so hip village of Woodstock and you start up the side of Overlook Mountain, you're on your way to a rare treat. Hanging on the side of this mountain, drenched in the sun, is one very incredible dwell style home that you'll be lucky to call home. The mountain side road is a bit of a challenge but once you arrive Wow is all you'll be able to utter. This place is one of a kind and the owner has spared no expense building this beauty. This home was built with a nice southern exposure so that all the rooms face a breath taking view of Ulster County and far, far beyond the Ashokan Reservoir and the Hudson River. The entry way to this beauty is high lighted with an exterior stairway and bridge over the driveway. This gives you the first taste of that oh so awesome view and brings you into a two story atrium space. Ascend that stairway and you'll arrive in a large glass great-room that will make you feel like you're on top of the world. This design is known as a Neo-Modern style and was designed by a well known local architect named Les Walker. The materials used here are varied and soothing. On the lower level you'll find a comfy TV room with granite floors, fireplace, big 3-D flat screen TV, Playstation 3 that will play 3D, Blue Ray movies. The Bose system will also play movies, DVDs and all with surround sound and Sirius stations. There's a half bath on this floor and a nice fourth bedroom. Head on upstairs and check out those Cherry hard wood floors and the chefs kitchen with gorgeous Ceaserstone counters, breakfast nook and stainless appliances. Next to it is a nice laundry room. The living room is wide open and has it's own fire place. From there you can walk out onto the big deck and try out that 6 person hot tub!! Also on this floor is a childs bedroom with two race car beds and a guest bedroom with a queen sized bed. You'll also find a killer bath room with gorgeous marble tile work and a huge sky lite. The stair case in the great room takes you to the master suite on the next level. There you'll find a king sized bed and the best view around. The master bath is to drool for. Huge glass shower with steam and a big jetted soaking tub. The owner has built a beauty here. Check out the custom Maple cabinets built in throughout the home. Slip off your shoes and experience the radiant heated floors. Nothing has been over looked here. Even the grill on the deck is tied into the propane tank. If you ever leave the mountain side to explore Mohonk or Minnewaska or to hike some of the famous Catskill Mountain trails or to carve some trails on the local ski slopes, you'll know something incredible is waiting for your return home.

About Bruce Stalnaker

We lead very busy lives in the city and always try to escape when possible. We fell in love with this area and decided to build a weekend home here. This place is incredible and has really given us the ultimate escape. We can't use it every weekend and are willing to share it with those that really appreciate what we've created here.

Bruce Stalnaker purchased this chateau / country house in 2009

Why Bruce Stalnaker chose Woodstock

We wanted an awesome view year round and to be close to I-87 and Woodstock. We selected this 4 plus acre mtn side lot and carefully built into the side of the mtn.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We get such incredible light here and that view changes with the clouds. All four seasons are special here. Night time is dark up here for maximum star gazing. The hot tub is inviting in any season. You won't want to leave.

july 2017 stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights at this property over the July 4th weekend. We were 5 adults and there was plenty of room in the house. It was clean and comfortable and the views were amazing. The hot tub on the deck was enjoyed each day. The big gas grill was perfect for our meals. The kitchen was large and well stocked. A few bar stools around the island would have been perfect. Loved the audio surround sound system throughout the house. Master bedroom was comfortable, the bathroom was large and the rain shower head is a total plus. There was an abundance of fresh towels which was appreciated, plenty for all of us. Property sits on top of a steep hill, low gear is the way to go for the last 1/2 to 1/4 mile if you're not in a four wheel drive like us, IMO. It was very manageable and we made the trip up and down several times during our stay, just saying.

Bruce the property manager was easy to work with and very responsive. We all agreed that we would stay here again given the chance.

To the home owners, thanks for the hospitality, we had a wonderful visit in your lovely home. We even saw a couple black bear and several deer out the back windows and a beautiful rainbow over the valley. It was a memorable trip, many thanks from our family to yours.

Owner's Response: The mountain top home is just that.....way up on the side of the mtn with views to always remember. Whether you're sitting in that big hot tub or working on a master piece in that chefs kitchen, this place will leave an impression on you! Thanks so much for being so easy on our home. We look forward to your return trips!! Respectfully, Bruce Rental Manager

Owner's Response: We are a short ride from the village of Woodstock, high up on the mtn side looking down on the village and the Ashokan Reservoir and out to the mighty Catskill Mtns. Very peaceful spot and very convenient. We loved having you folks there!! Respectfully, Bruce Rental Manager

Great Family Holiday!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at this property over the xmas holiday and it was absolutely perfect! The views from the second floor are simply incredible, and overall, the quality of the house itself were great. Good sized bedrooms, multiple fireplaces, open / airy common areas, this place is perfect for group gatherings. Getting up and down the hill to house in snow was challenging for non 4WD vehicles, but as long you have that you're good. Definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a large house with breathtaking views in the area.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

Great house with spectacular views and lots of amenities. Bruce (property manager) is very responsive and helped with any questions we had. Driveway and road leading to house are very steep, so four-wheel drive is a must! Overall great experience and house was terrific.

Owner's Response: Was wonderful to have you folks here. I know that some of you were under the weather while here and you made the best of it. Hang out in the hot tub or watch TV by the fire place. Access road is well plowed in the winter but still very steep. Do hope that you'll come see us again! Respectfully, Bruce

This area is full of things to do. You're in the famous Catskill Mountains here. There are miles of trails to hike and several mountains to ski. We've got incredible parks to explore like Mohonk and Minnewaska with countless miles of old carriage roads to bike and pristine lakes to swim. Local hikes to places like the Overlook Fire Tower will test your metal but reward you with views to droll over. Eclectic local villages like Woodstock, Saugerties and Phoenicia are great to explore. Kingston has one of everything as far as stores go. Fine restaurants can be found in all of them. Time will slip by you here and this house is just soooo amazing you won't want to leave!! Sit out on the deck or in that huge hot tub and just drink in the view and serenity.
