Asking $4,950,000, this unique country estate at 411 Hutchin Hill Road in Bearsville, NY, was inspired by the Adirondack Great Camps in their Gilded Age heyday. Occupying almost 72 acres, this secluded compound nearly 2,000 feet above sea level in the Catskill mountains is anchored by a 5,590-square-foot five-bedroom home.
Inspired by The Point, a celebrated resort in Upper Saranac Lake, the main house features a great room anchored by a dramatic stone fireplace. Adirondack-style details like wood-paneled walls, hunting-lodge decor, and hunter-green accents are tamed by carefully-crafted built-in shelving and lighting.
A bespoke kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances stands ready for any level of cooking and entertaining. A formal dining room can accommodate few or many, and a glass-enclosed dining porch offers wilderness vistas in every direction.
The main suite, situated on the first floor for easy access, includes an en-suite bath designed in the style of the era. The suite also has its own private porch overlooking the pool. There are two more guest suites on the main level.
On the grounds of the estate, The Playhouse is made for keeping guests of all ages entertained. This charming cabin features a stone fireplace, a working office, a restaurant-quality bar and two cozy, well-appointed bedroom suites.
An additional protected and scenic building site is included in this unique Catskills getaway. Lovers of the arts will thrive here: Residents of the Ulster County hamlet minutes from the village of Woodstock, include Iman and Uma Thurman, and the Byrdcliffe Arts Colony–home to Bob Dylan on the 1960s–is nearby.
