Description for Glasco Tpke Woodstock, NY 12498
This "Storybook" style fancifully designed home offers amazingly spacious gathering areas for friends, family, art & music. It is a perfect retreat for a few people and readily expands when hosting special & wonderful gatherings. The historically significant home has been thoroughly updated from top to bottom. When not enjoying the house & its' lovely garden areas one can head to the Byrdcliffe Art Colony or easily be in the heart of Woodstock. The thick stone walls allow for deep window seats in the living room inviting one to curl up and enjoy the garden & terrace views. A second "grand & distinguished" living room with its beautiful woodwork & stunning leaded windows is currently a music & media center. Both of these living areas have their own fireplace. All the ground level living areas have doors opening out to the exterior gardens and patios. Here you will find two distinct trellised & vine covered outdoor dining areas- one accessed from the bright kitchen for outdoor dining or easy conversation & "nibbles" & the other from the music/media room. The master bedroom is on the first floor and allows one direct access to the gardens. The second story is a world unto itself. A lovely open hall area (once a bedroom) is used for media or crafts, and is the access to two bedrooms. The large bathroom has a deep Japanese style soaking tub - to dispel the cares & stresses that can complicate ones life. A very special hideaway for playful children is to be discovered on this floor! The current owners have taken a small ground level room that had been a tiny guest room & created a good sized laundry/work area. The sellers' have replaced everything in the house as well as put on a new roof & installed electronic conveniences that can turn on/off all the lights, set thermostats, lock/unlock doors, view doorbells and cameras, and get smoke and CO2 alerts on your phone anywhere in the world! This is truly a new home in a handsome 1920's shell. Storybook architecture is known for a fairy-tale style often having much in common with the English Cottage, Tudor Revival, or Norman/French Revival styles. The Storybook style originated in southern California - its defining characteristic is whimsy with towers, turrets, columns, and colonnades & mullioned casement windows, arched or half-round doors, stucco siding, half-timbering, and ornate hardware or lighting fixtures making for an extremely charming home. To replicate these unique hand-crafted and irregular spaces today would be nearly impossible & very expensive.
