Cloudhill: an estate property of 130+ acres with a main house, guest house, and tennis court. The main house is sited to capture the unspoiled southwest views via large windows and French doors in each of the main floor public rooms. The great room features a soaring ceiling trussed with exposed beams and a large stone fireplace. The dining room opens to the elevated veranda. The eat-in kitchen has a center island with gas cooktop, granite counters, built-in desk and French doors to the veranda. A bedroom with en suite bath is also on this level. On the upper level is a spacious master bedroom. The master bath has twin vanities, shower and soaking tub. An office with fireplace and a private balcony adjoins the library which overlooks the great room below. Additionally there are 2 more bedrooms and full bath. The lower level features a family room with a wood-burning stove and 3 sets of French doors that open to a patio.
The house was designed with a subtle nod to Japanese architecture. The abundant use of natural wood: beams, cabinet accents, window frames, book shelves, window seats. The elevated veranda. And most significantly recognizing the importance of natural light and views to enjoy the change of seasons. The design yields to the philosophy that understanding the natural world is a source of spiritual insight.
Also on the property is an antique (circa 1900) 4-bedroom/2 bath house with fireplace and large screened-in porch. Tennis Court. Separate garage with a 1 bedroom/1.5 bath kitchen apartment that would make a wonderful caretaker cottage. Storage barn. Greenhouse. Adirondack hut with views. Extensive established trails for hiking/cross country skiing.
The privacy and the connection with nature provide a sense of sanctuary and peace. Sublime.
