A jaw-dropping modern contemporary home made from reclaimed barn wood 75 miles from NYC. Entering the tree-lined private driveway along the Plattekill Creek, you'll be greeted by the massive wall of windows built by the original owner, a sculptor who created a living room with 19-foot ceilings. Completely renovated last year by the sculptor's niece, the manager of a luxury hotel property, this home ticks all the boxes for a perfect weekend or full-time residence: utterly unique charm, incredible views (including skylights in every single room upstairs!), and privacy without isolation. Practical/luxurious details of country life have been considered here with a slate-floored mudroom, wood-burning fireplaces in the den and master bedroom, an incredible freestanding antique wood stove from the original Pine Bush train station, and plenty of areas for entertaining or relaxing. Quiet and peace pervade the area. Next door is Thich Nhat Hanh's Blue Cliff Monastery. 5 miles to Sam's Point hiking and about the same to the center of the hamlet of Pine Bush with its health food store, vegan Chinese restaurant, and other amenities -- and slightly longer but absolutely stunning drives to Stone Ridge, High Falls, Rosendale, Kerhonkson, Accord, Gardiner, Ellenville, New Paltz...and all the farmstands, restaurants, cafes, hiking, wineries, distilleries, galleries, and more in this very special region. The Plattekill Creek runs beside the house and is strong enough to be heard inside during the spring and summer months. This is one of those places where it's very easy to imagine waking up in the master bedroom and stepping outside to enjoy a cup of coffee on your balcony (overlooking the creek!) or maybe taking a soak in the extra-deep bathtub before starting the day. Updates from the past two years include a new roof, water softener and UV light, on demand water heater, and additional insulation. New drilled well from 2006. The house stays cool in the summer from the shade and primarily north-facing windows -- and keeps cozy in winter with its many skylights and wind-protected location nestled into the small valley next to the creek. Every one of the windows in the living room has been replaced with double-paned glass last year and six of them are operable to allow for a nice breeze. There's a new fridge in the kitchen and the Montague Grizzly commercial stove has a lifetime warranty. Spectrum serves the area for (very!) high speed internet and cable.

This mortgage calculator can be used to figure out monthly payments of a home mortgage loan, based on the home's sale price, the term of the loan desired, buyer's down payment percentage, and the loan's interest rate. This calculator factors in PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) for loans where less than 20% is put as a down payment. Also taken into consideration are the town property taxes, and their effect on the total monthly mortgage payment.
