Only 90 minutes from the GW Bridge this thoroughly modernized Arts and Crafts-style farmhouse offers a rare opportunity to own a historic home in the early 20th-century artists colony of Cragsmoor. The bright and airy home is on a quiet private road perched on the Shawangunk Ridge in the town of Warwarsing in southern Ulster County. First-floor public rooms include a grand living room with multiple seating areas, formal dining room, library lined with handcrafted walnut bookcases, and a farmhouse kitchen with an island, built in wine refrigerator and separate breakfast room. The four large upstairs bedrooms include an expansive master suite with a sitting area around a wood-burning fireplace and an adjoining art or yoga studio. Several sets of French doors open to a wraparound elevated deck and create a wonderful indoor-outdoor flow, making the charming 10-room house ideal for entertaining as well as cozy nights at home. Three stone fireplaces and a wood stove create intimate gathering spots. Original and updated architectural details abound: exposed wood beams and posts, built-in bookcases, pocket doors, wainscoting, cathedral and vaulted ceilings, cedar-shake siding, ample closets, new double-hung wood windows, skylight, and two and a half updated bathrooms. The walk-out lower level features a workshop, laundry room, plenty of storage and easy access to lawns and woods. Outdoor features on the 2.4-acre property include two fenced gardens, koi pond, stone walls, bluestone walkways and gravel paths, majestic oaks and pines, fruit trees, and a wisteria-wrapped pergola. Once a guesthouse for the Cragsmoor Inn, this move-in-ready home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is minutes from Sam's Point and the Minnewaska hiking trails.
