Sleek architecture nestled in the heart of farm country in Upstate New York combines the best of modern and back-to-nature, convenient to the Delaware River, farmers' markets and multiple dining options. Abundant light streams through the wide glass corner where the dining table currently table sits, and which gives up splendid views of the round pond just outside. In temperate weather you'll be drawn outside to barbeque and hang out on the wraparound bluestone patio, gazing at the wildflowers and butterflies, while being serenaded by birdsong. This is an extremely peaceful
The open plan living room and dining space is punctuated by a modern, glass-fronted wood stove, which provides ample supplementary heat to the house-wide radiant floor system, not to mention cozy ambience. Concrete floors maximize the efficiency of this system.
The master bedroom, with its sliding barn door, opens onto a bathroom with large, modern, walk-in shower. That bathroom also opens to a guest bedroom, which is currently used as an office/guest room. Another guest bedroom and separate guest bathroom offers added privacy.
The tidy kitchen, with its butcher block counters, is a pleasing spot for the creation of elaborate feasts or your morning cup of joe. A utility room includes laundry, while the shed provides added storage for equipment, etc.
Hemlock House is set in a wonderfully picturesque, largely agricultural area, with neighbors offering a bountiful farm stand that you'll love to take advantage of. Amble down and have a chat while you pick up a dozen pastel-colored eggs, just-laid. The private road is home to three dwellings, and the owners share the cost of plowing and road maintenance.
If you're a cyclist (like the owner), you'll relish touring around local roads, while nearby Crystal Lake is a choice spot for a kayak or a swim (and yes, the pond is swimmable too).
