Hoping your Catskill Escape Will Have a Stream?
One of the most relaxing things you can do this time of year in the Catskills & Hudson Valley Region is to pack yourself a thermos of tea, find a rock by a stream, and watch beautifully colored leaves float down a stream. How lovely does that sound? Streams are equally entertaining in the winter, when their edges freeze up, providing endless opportunities for ice crunching; in summer, when the moving water can cool your feet and offer a chance to observe wildlife; and in spring when their power and size change daily.
Streams are calming, so calming that corporations build them into the lobbies of their headquarters, people incorporate them into their homes via small water fixtures, and the recorded sounds of streams are a featured setting on many sleep machines. How wonderful would it be to own a home with that soundtrack built in? Pretty wonderful. Here are four properties that offer just that.
Catskills Real Estate With A Stream:
25 Pine Grove Street, Woodstock
25 Pine Grove St. is uniquely situated at the confluence of the Tannery Brook and the Mill Stream in the Village of Woodstock. A generous deck traverses the back of the house, and a custom stone stairway leads down to the stream bank and invites you to dangle your feet in the water on a hot day. If you want to enjoy your stream view (and that soundtrack) from a contemporary vantage point, 25 Pine Grove is for you. It’s village meets modern. Recently remodeled with a clean aesthetic and calming color palette, its details include: an open floor plan, cathedral ceilings, clerestory windows, a gourmet kitchen, oak floors that have been stained the perfect shade of light gray, custom built-in seating, and a host of infrastructure improvements which while not immediately obvious, are crucial to your comfort and enjoyment of the home. Two staircases, set at either end of the first floor, lead up to the bedrooms and create a singular sense of privacy. While the stream is the main outdoor feature to the rear of the house, the landscaping take center stage in the front. An extraordinary architectural fence and striking gated driveway enhance the front yard and provide a beautiful envelope for this special spot.

2596 Glasco Turnpike, Woodstock
Here’s another property in Woodstock, which while also contemporary, has a different vibe. This beautiful 4 bedroom, 3 full bath, contemporary sits on almost 2 acres. It’s set back off a pretty country road, and a seasonal creek hugs the property, picturesquely running parallel to the driveway; it makes quite the impression when you drive up. Welcoming is a word that’s used so commonly that we forget what it means, so really think about the essence of the word when we say, “this home is welcoming”. Warm-tone hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, and divided light windows are traditional elements that have been remixed into a wholly contemporary style. Light pours in from walls and ceilings, and outside, the landscaping manages to be at once one with the surrounding woods, and formal enough to look sharp (in the best possible way).

Both homes are charming and have light-filled rooms that are havens for relaxation, hobbying, and entertaining. The property also features a heated artist's studio so when you inevitably become inspired by your surroundings, you’ll have a place to make and create.
