Upstate NY Real Estate | The Great Game Room

Great Game Rooms of The Hudson Valley and Catskills

You know what I love about fall? The Chill. I don't just mean the chill in the air (which is delicious), I mean the fact that in the fall, I can chill! All summer I feel obligated to knock it out of the park, to have as much outdoor fun as humanly possible. Hiking, swimming, boating, beach walking, bbq'ing, playing guitar on the lawn, supervising night time games of man-hunt, biking, family shoehorns the maximum amount of activity into every single day. It can get a! In the summer I feel like going inside is a betrayal of a glorious gift. That's a lot of pressure!

Every year by the time we get to Labor Day I am so ready for a stiff breeze to roll in. The breeze is welcome to be carrying a light drizzle. I'm ready for the smell of wood smoke on the air and some apple cider doughnuts. I'm ready for a puzzle and a "My Fair Lady"/"The Sound of Music" marathon snuggled up on one of those crazy recliner couches with my favorite blankie. Who's with me? 

If you just howled out "Me, Me, I'm with you! I'm sunburned! The elastic has worn out on my bathing suit! I'm okay with never ever eating potato salad ever, ever again!", then you know what you need? You need to shoot some pool. Where's the best place to do that? Your very own game room. You know what else you need? A media room. You know why? Because there is no better place on earth to totally chill. As the weather cools down if you look deep inside you'll realize you don't really want to stop having fun. You just want to have a different kind of fun. What you want is to chill out cozied up in your own home. Here are my picks for places you can do just that - in no particular order because they are all pretty great!



#1. 124 Notch Inn Road, Hunter NY Real Estate For Sale


The game room/media room combo at 124 Notch Inn Road in Hunter is perfect. Open the double doors for a connection to the outside (the views at this property are spectacular), watch a movie, play some ping-pong (if you haven't played ping-pong in a while, trust me, it's awesome), jam with friends or just play a good long game of monopoly. This game room is on the lower level of an absolutely gorgeous home. Bonus for those who truly love to chill - a fantastic covered porch with an outdoor fireplace, and a hot tub where you can take in the views.

#2. 25 Maple Avenue, Milton NY Real Estate For Sale


Ahhh, ping pong and pool and movies. Yes! 25 Maple Ave's game room overlooks a lake and has the interesting feature of being removed from the rest of the house. Play your movies loud or really rock out to high volume music while you shoot some pool. There's a separate entrance for this room so it's great for teenagers or late night guests coming and going. Really want to make the most of this room? In the Winter send the kids outside to skate on the lake while you play pool cozy and warm inside!

This home is so lovely it's very nearly indescribable. It's a leisure lover's paradise. Looking for unique? One word - tunnel. This extreme luxury home has so many amazing amenities including a game room, full home theatre, a 5,000 sq foot pool house complete with the amazing bar/lounge area above, a home gym, and a tunnel that connects the main house and pool house. When the weather is poor, or you just want to go completely incognito, you can come and go underground in complete comfort and privacy. Prepare yourself to become obsessed and take a look at the photos and the video.




#4. 37 Notch View, Lexington NY Real Estate For Sale

Man. Woman. Doesn't matter. Doesn't this look like your cave?  I don't know if I've ever seen a single room with so much fun packed into it. A piano, a bar (your very own piano bar!), foosball, cozy hangout area, some other table game that I don't recognize but is most likely super fun! (I'd love to know how you play that!)

This is the lower floor of a really fabulous rustic style home in Lexington. If you've never been to Lexington you're missing out on what I consider to be the Shagri La of the Catskills. It's right in the center of a semicircle comprised of Hunter, Windham, Phoenicia and Pine Hill. You're right at the epicenter of outdoor activity and this property has the views to prove it. Plus Lexington has some of the most beautiful land in Greene County. You'll feel your blood pressure drop the minute you cross the town line. Hang out in this game room for a while and you may chill so hard that blood pressure will drop to dangerous levels!

#5. 201 County Route 358, Rensselaerville, Greene County Real Estate For Sale

Here's another elegant Upstate home that has what we might call a "leisure complex", not just one room dedicated to fun and relaxation, but a series of rooms. Here an expansive family room with a fireplace and amazing views (see the rainbow above) has a handsome wet bar with seating for five. This is the perfect place for sophisticated, indoor relaxation. Off the family room is the billiard room with more fabulous views. The configuration of these spaces allows for several conversation areas which is so important when you're entertaining a crowd.




#6. 715 Albany Post Road, New Paltz Real Estate For Sale

The Vertical Gameroom. Now, this is pretty clever. This house has a giant sun room which of course you could use as a game room if you wanted. However, right now it is being used for lounging. Instead the pool table, ping-pong table, dart board and cozy built-in reading couch are housed in a unique space-saving vertical configuration. The best way to view it is by watching the video: 



Outside is a pool and a gorgeous tennis court, because, before you know it, you'll come full circle and be ready to knock it out of the park with outdoor fun once more! If you have any questions, or want to find your perfect place to chill contact us.
