Property Type: Single Family

Description: Unlike Dutchess County to the east, there aren’t many Hudson Valley estates in laid-back Ulster County and it’s exceptionally rare for one to come to market. Ashokan House is perched in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains with panoramic views of the reservoir that lends it its name. Sited amid towering pines and dramatic rock outcroppings, the 11, 000 square foot mansion was designed for entertaining, yet also offers intimate spaces, which allow it to function as a nurturing family home. The grand living, dining and game rooms flow effortlessly into each other and feature soaring 14-foot ceilings, rich woods, fireplaces and sophisticated architectural detail. A sprawling all-stainless steel kitchen, scaled for preparing for a crowd, is complemented by a cozier family kitchen and adjacent breakfast room for more casual gatherings and weeknight meals. A first-floor bedroom suite opens to a private porch, one of many dreamy and romantic outdoor spaces dotted throughout the property. Part way up to the guest wing, the stairway veers to a classic, mahogany-paneled study/library with a dazzling view of the reservoir, one of many perches within the home from which it’s visible. The guest wing houses a suite of rooms, including a bedroom with sitting area, office space, lavish bathroom, sauna and access to a large elevated patio and the view. The home’s grand staircase leads to a skylit atrium, a sitting room of sorts, from which three additional bedroom suites are accessed, including the opulent master, a luxe space that’s made for relaxing, pampering and dreaming. The space is simply huge, and incorporates a cherry-paneled sitting room, two fireplaces, private outdoor space facing the reservoir, all-white bathroom with sunken whirlpool tub, sauna, separate facilities and lots of closet space. Each of the bedrooms in the home has its own bathroom and most have fireplaces; there are eleven fireplaces in all. With such beautiful grounds, mature landscaping and bountiful nature, it’s no surprise that there are plenty of doors to the outside, porches and patios galore, and paths that lead to private and secluded spaces throughout the property. The lodge-like carriage house incorporates a six-car garage and includes two bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, great room with stone fireplace, office/sitting room and a spiral staircase to an observation tower that’s one of the most magical spots from which to gaze at the reservoir below and the sky above. The studio building, down a path past the carriage hose, sits on its own 5-acre parcel and is currently set up as a gym, though the potential uses for this building are many. When there’s a desire to leave home, attractions abound. Ashokan House is a short drive from Woodstock, Kingston, Phoenicia and Rhinebeck for shopping, dining and loads of galleries. Hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, downhill and cross-country skiing and a host of marinas are nearby as well.
