Like a perfectly composed poem, this home will gently carry you into a spectacular universe of artistic proportions - It is just that beautiful! The original arts and crafts core that was built in 2000, with unobstructed Shawangunks cliff views, is only about a quarter of the new footprint of this home in its current incarnation, completed in 2017. No stone was left unturned with evident attention to every detail featuring exquisite materials and finishes. Custom steel framed windows and french doors with energy efficient glazing invite the mountain and garden views and tons of light into the living spaces. The epicurean kitchen has an inviting dining area to entertain intimate dinners and includes a La Cornue range and hood, Bosch 800 series dishwasher, Liebherr fridge, Sub-Zero refrigerator drawers and wine cooler all embedded in Premier Custom-Built cabinetry, Calacatta marble counters and an anthracite concrete island. Enjoy the architectural eye candy of the formal dining room and plan for grand dinner parties under high ceilings, stunning window arrangements and handcrafted Moroccan Zellige tiles. Oversized glass doors open to the large living room with a Wittus wood-burning stove including bread oven compartment, a mountain view embracing sunroom with one of several wet bars with Sub-Zero beverage coolers, built in speakers and hook-up for movie projector. Throughout the house you will find stunning antique Moroccan and Indian doors and handcrafted tiles. The private master suite wing above is just dreamy! You will be waking up with the Shawangunk mountain range illuminated from the morning sun. Two walk-in closets, spa-like bathroom with freestanding tub, walk-in shower and sauna, and dedicated deck. There are three additional bedrooms (including the studio apartment above the garage), a media room with fireplace and wet bar, office, climbing gym, and a large yoga studio that could be used in many ways such as guest suite, office or art studio. Step outside to the private cobblestone patio with the gunite saltwater pool surrounded by bluestone and Gunks conglomerate stonework in a perfect marriage with jaw-dropping landscaping, mostly with native plantings. Exciting landscape designs extend around the house, following the wraparound porches to a courtyard with a formal garden, bluestone patio and a firepit area. Irrigated raised beds for your vegetables, great lawns all around, outdoor shower and hot tub complete the bliss. It is an entertainer's paradise! Perfect location minutes to New Paltz and world class rock climbing, hiking and biking at Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park.
