Stoll Road  

So many people move to the Catskills and Hudson Valley so they can spend more time enjoying the outdoors. A great thought! But days can become filled with errands and work, social appointments and obligations of all sorts. It IS possible to move here and end up spending as little time outdoors as you did when you lived in the city or the ‘burbs. Horrors! But, there’s a way to be sure you live the lifestyle you sought.

Choosing a house that is interconnected with the natural world is the key to ensuring you get connected to it too. A house with easy access to the outdoors - from multiple egresses, through large glass windows uninterrupted by fussy decorations, a house that has outdoor spaces that invite gatherings and are just as comfortable as the interior, a house close enough to green spaces with enough room for you to explore, escape, and get some exercise, a house like this is the key to living the Upstate Dream. 431 Stoll Road in Saugerties NY is a perfect example of a home that will draw you out and connect you to the nature you were seeking when you decided to move here in the first place.

The outdoor spaces at 431 Stoll are unique and frankly cool! But let’s start with the interior because that’s where you might get stuck in some houses! You could be on your computer or emptying your grocery bags or playing Yatzee or Super Mario Odyssey, and not even notice that you haven’t taken a good look at a tree or a deep breath of some fresh air all day. Our homes can disconnect us from the ground they’re planted in or they can hook us up! This one connects. There are windows everywhere; big, beautiful windows that frame views of the surrounding meadows and woodlands from every side of the house. A sunroom with three walls of windows extends out into the backyard, there’s barely a separation between indoors and out. There are plenty of ways in and out of the house and the spaces flow together smoothly. Beautiful wood trim and cabinets throughout heighten the feeling of connection with the woods. The heart of the home is a light-filled two story living room with warm wood ceiling, stucco fireplace and a wood stove. Toasty! The dining area leads to the sun room which overlooks the pool area with waterfall and koi pond. The cook's kitchen, which has all new stainless steel appliance,s including a Capital brand gas range and butcher block island. The main bedroom suite is expansive and delightful. This is a home of comfort and repose.

Then there’s the outdoors. The 6.3 acres are separated into 2 deeded lots across the street from one another. On one side of the road is the house, on the other a garage/workshop building and acreage surrounded by Woodstock Conservancy land and the Sloan Gorge hiking trail. You could create your own hiking trails, or perhaps build a guest house, a barn, or another studio there. There is some fencing in place for horses, sheep, goats, lamas, alpacas, etc, or you could just enjoy your own peaceful meadow and bask in the beautiful open space and not have to feed anything!

The improvements in the outdoor areas surrounding the house might be the coup de grace of this property (in a good way). There’s a wonderful in-ground pool with a stone patio, a waterfall and koi pond, a deck, a screened porch, perennial gardens and a gated entry that keeps this a private haven. With all these options you can’t help but walk outside every day of the year to enjoy one thing or another. This tranquil retreat is situated only 10 minutes to Woodstock or 15 minutes to Saugerties, but you may never want to leave! 

Be outdoorsy! It’s what you intended, no?
