Finding a Perfect "10" in a Catskills Country Home can be hard but this beautiful Estate-like property on Bramley Mountain Road near Bovina truly HAS IT ALL!
On the list of Must-Haves for our most demanding home-buyers are always these things: PRIVACY, VIEWS, STREAM OR POND, WOODED AND OPEN ACREAGE, A FIREPLACE, CATHEDRAL CEILINGS AND LODGE-LIKE INTERIORS. And this high-quality residence, custom built in 2003, HAS IT ALL and more; it is bounded by hundreds of acres of NYC Watershed Preserve Lands for hiking, hunting and birdwatching over a vast terrain.
Let’s begin with the entrance gate on the bucolic Bovina country lane know as Bramley Mountain Road. You don’t see the home as you come through the gate because the property is wooded along the road shielding it’s privacy and as you wind down the slope to cross the bridge over the stream the landscape opens up into a rolling hillside pasture.
About half way up the long winding drive you come alongside the clear, half-acre swimming pond and now look up the hill to see this charming and spacious home perched on a small plateau looking out over a Currier and Ives picture-postcard landscape worthy of the Hudson Valley School of painters. Watching the sunlight and clouds array over this constantly changing seasonal view is a year-round pleasure of great magnitude and inestimable value. It nourishes the soul to just relax and enjoy the glory of nature as you gaze across the Catskills mountain range from this comfortable perch.
The home was custom built by these original owners with all the creature comforts, quality construction, and low-maintenance planning that came from several years of envisioning their Dream-House as they camped out on the 3 adjoining fully-functional camper/motorhome service pads next to the homesite.
Skirting the house are generous open and roofed deck areas for outdoor entertaining and relaxation overlooking the pond below and the gorgeous landscape spreading out across the valley and mountains in the distant views.
Entering the impressive Great Room with its high cathedral ceilings and the massive timber beams locally harvested, you experience the grand lodge-like atmosphere so desired by country home-owners. Large expanses of thermal glass windows in the prow let in brilliant sunlight and the spectacular views over the Catskill Mountain Range. A gas-log fireplace/wood stove on the fieldstone hearth sits in the corner of the room to provide that cozy fireside-hearth charm for cool nights in the mountains. This home was designed for excellent efficient heating with radiant in-slab heat in bottom floor and hydronic baseboard heat throughout the house.
Adjoining the expansive Great Room is the dining area and cook’s kitchen allowing everyone to enjoy the hospitality while meals are prepared. The wood-lined master bedroom suite with its luxury bathroom spa with dual vanities bath and shower is on this main level and 3 more bedrooms and a full bath are upstairs with a connecting full bath between all three upstairs bedrooms.
Downstairs is the big entry “mudroom” so important in a 4-season mountain home and also a family-room den with half bath great for a kids play area or home-theater separate from the Great Room living room above. Radiant heat in the concrete slab provides cozy warmth in the coldest of winters. The finished basement also includes a 2-car garage and utility room with workbench shop space.
