Close to Woodstock, the Ashokan Reservoir, and Hiking in the Catskills

For some, buying a new home is all about location, location, location. For others, it’s all about majestic views. Still others look for a quality-built home. But what if one home expertly combined all three?

This custom-built home is located in Shokan, New York, just outside Woodstock—the lovable hippie haven experiencing an influx of world-class dining destinations, tasteful wine and cocktail bars, and next-generation boutiques. 


“The home is built with quality natural organic materials, including solid wood, that give it a higher level of sophistication,” says Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker Danielle Bonesteel with Halter Associates Realty in Woodstock and Kingston. “It’s warm and inviting and the windows are oversized, so you can really appreciate the outdoors.”

Built in 1999, the contemporary home sits on nine acres and has three bedrooms, high ceilings, a free-standing stone fireplace, radiant flooring, and a large gourmet kitchen with high-end appliances. 

“The downstairs is fully finished, which gives you additional flexibility,” says Bonesteel. “The home comes with three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. The dramatic entertaining areas and stunning cathedral-ceilinged stairway make this home even more inviting.”

The lucky new owner of this masterpiece of a home will also be able to enjoy the nearby town of Phoenicia and the famous Phoenicia Diner, tubing and fly fishing on the Esopus Creek, and the many hiking trails that the Catskills have to offer.

It’s also in close proximity to the Ashokan Reservoir, the newly created Ashokan rail trail, skiing at nearby Bellayre, Hunter, and Windham mountains, and the many arts and entertainment options in Woodstock and Kingston.


This beautiful home is listed for $1,299,000 and is available through Halter Associates Realty.

Here, the native plants expert explains why and how those non-native plants in your garden are affecting the local populations of caterpillars and birds that rely on native plants for food.
