Moosebeck is a 300-acre estate, enjoyed by the same family for 35 years, on the Stoddard Mill Stream, straddling Ulster and Sullivan counties. Three homes, each with its own personality, and a number of additional structures, make for an ideal family compound, retreat center, or hospitality destination. The jewel in the crown is The Villa, a 5000 square foot labor of love, crafted in stone with brick trim and a slate roof, inspired by the owners' extensive European travel, allowing them to experience on a daily basis what they so enjoy while exploring abroad. Many materials were sourced or produced in workshops on the property, from the ochre-stained concrete tile flooring to the leaded and stained glass windows and more. The four bedrooms are all ensuite and are proportioned for ultimate comfort and personal space. The core of the home is the living room with 20-foot cathedral ceilings, stacked-stone fireplace and doors to a balcony overlooking the lush landscape on one side and a cloistered courtyard on the other. Kitchen and bathrooms are appropriately fitted for a home of this importance. The Lodge is an Adirondack-style cabin with four bedrooms, while The Cottage is a sweet two-bedroom dwelling. The Stone Teahouse, built to honor the owner's mother's 80th birthday, is an ideal spot for writing the great American novel or for quiet contemplation. A gunite pool, spa and cabana are sited in a lovely spot amid lush flowering shrubs and a wisteria-covered pergola. There are miles of trails through the peaceful woods and plenty of space on the property to roam in solitude or to gather with friends and family.
