This Laird Road Modern is a three-bedroom, three-bathroom contemporary in 2,430 square feet with a 390 square-foot garage on 5.34 acres with stream frontage. The actual location is Swan Lake, a tiny hamlet just 3.4 miles from the original site of Woodstock 1969 in Bethel.
Such a captivating, freshly built home rarely enters the market. One that has been so well conceived and executed. One that has an architect’s sensibilities to contemporary design – to well-distributed spaces and how daily life unfurls within its walls. There is a natural harmony of flow from the living area, kitchen, and dining area, to the bedrooms. The thoughtful placement and orientation on the lot allow for maximum views and dramatic light, light that permeates the home throughout the year.
There are two generous decks to soak in the surrounding landscape, a wood-burning fireplace framed by fluted ceramic tiling, a chef’s kitchen with all new appliances, and a primary ensuite with a 71″ soaking tub and ceiling-mounted speakers.
The floors have been fitted with a thick rubber membrane to create acoustic separation from the kitchen below. The basement has a great storage area and a Bilco door for easy access to the yard.
Finally, it’s of note that this house was built with a forward-looking philosophy: no fossil fuels are used in the home. Its new owners will enjoy low utilities year-round, thanks to quality materials including windows, foam insulation, heat exchanger, and more.
The lot has a lovely open field where a pool or pond could be added. Walk down through the forest to a magical stream front where a firepit would be a great addition.
Located just 3.5 miles from Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, 20 minutes to Livingston Manor, 23 minutes to Callicoon, and 25 minutes to Narrowsburg so there are many options for entertainment and great restaurants.
