About 395 Roaring Brook Lane, Above the Owl's Nest in Highmount

Luxury home hidden in the forest on the west slopes of Monka Hill with only the sounds of the Emory Brook and wind in the trees to greet you. Belleayre Mt Ski area is nearby and visible through the trees from the balcony of the second floor. This is a four season retreat to be enjoyed on special weekends and holiday gateways with friends and family. A custom new home was built for himself by a successful contractor, and no details were left out and much quality is built in. A spacious open floor plan with two floors in the home is set up with five bedrooms and four full baths. The ten foot ceilings open to over 20' high in the stunning living room with a blue-stone faced fireplace and lots of glass to share the outdoors. Most rooms are open to the 1,000sf deck looking out over the forest and stream to share the six-person jetted hot tub. The master suite has its own private bath, large shower, and jetted tub at one end of the home and there is a suite of three bedrooms and full bath at the other. A well appointed den/family room has a wet bar and entertainment center. The kitchen with its large island and granite counter tops is complete for gourmet cooking and is open to the breakfast nook and living room areas for easy socializing. The formal entry foyer and dining room is easy to serve from the kitchen. The convenient equipment storage/shop and a laundry room is easily accessible to the large mudroom entry, with lots of room for gear and coats, at the side of the house. The fifth bedroom and fourth bath are upstairs in a suite of rooms. In addition to this suite is an adjacent 1,000sf of unfinished but ready to go living space, fully insulated and ready to complete with another bathroom and lots of room for a multi-room suite. Then there is the lower level apartment with three bedrooms and one bath surrounding a large central living/dining/kitchen area. This additional custom well-appointed space is accessed by its own private entrance with an entry foyer for coats and gear and there is a patio glass sliding door walkout to the mountain forest view. The open space gourmet kitchen with granite counter tops is convenient to the use as AirBnB. Included is a detached 10x20 storage barn with shed roof for storing landscaping equipment, recreational vehicles and other tools. This private mountain setting just three miles from the ski slopes at Belleayre Mt. Ski Center. Summer at Belleayre offers the gondola ride for panorama views and many music events. Enjoy the outdoor music on a blanket or lawn chair with a glass of wine at the Belleayre Ski Center summer concerts. Summer swimming in nearby Belleayre Lake is only minutes away. Nearby are the fine dining opportunities of Margaretville, Pine Hill, and Phoenicia. The property is bounded by Trout Unlimited and the upper reaches of the natural perennial Emory Brook for trout fishing. Other lands beyond are NYC DEP protected wilderness where hiking and hunting is allowed with appropriate permit. ATV trails are on the property and you can enjoy winter sled riding next to the house. This home is at the end of the road and most of the area is surrounded by State or NYC owned land so there will be no more neighbors. Just 15 minutes to Woodstock and less than two hours from NYC. The bus (NYC/Oneonta) drives through town several times a day. Zillow illustrates incorrect property taxes which are correctly about $647/month
