The open floor plan incorporates a gourmet kitchen, dining area and living room with a fieldstone fireplace, and transitions to an outside covered porch with fireplace and wrap-around deck. On the same level are three bedrooms, including the master bedroom, two guest bedrooms and a library: each room with a view more stunning than the other. Septic capacity will allow for 4 bedrooms.The crow’s nest is a remarkable space where weather patterns can be viewed in all four directions. The 4,070 square feet of green construction embrace plenty of natural light, cross breezes, passive solar in winter, and efficient insulation. The driveway wends its way up by two ponds to the house on the summit at an elevation of 1,840 feet, and offers complete privacy on 35+/- acres. Just 2 miles from Silver Lake and Barnard Village, 7 miles from Suicide Six ski resort, and 9 miles from Woodstock Village.
