Welcome to Dilly Dally, where old meets new! This 1798 stone home with addition marries history with all the modern day amenities you seek, including a 50 foot in-ground heated pool! Enter into a window-encased room which truly can be described as great, with a central view to the pool and woods beyond. Two sets of French doors open to one of the outdoor bluestone patios - a private garden room enclosed by high boxwood walls. The sun-embracing living room features large bluestone flooring and tall beamed wood ceiling, harmoniously complementing the historic part of the house with a modern and open appeal. A massive, raised hearth stone fireplace joins the great room and kitchen which boasts custom cabinetry crafted by a local woodworker, a Wolf open-burner stove and hood, blue limestone counters and farm sink and another set of French doors. In the historic part of the house you'll find the original trim and wide-board floors intact, an inviting dining room, a library / formal living room with a second fireplace and a large full bath. Upstairs there are three comfortable bedrooms and a full bath in the original part of the house before making your way into the addition through a loft with skylight, walk-in closet and into the grand primary bedroom with stunning views of the pool and property. The ensuite bath includes two sinks, a free-standing soaking tub and a sizeable walk in shower. The exposed beams and wide plank floors remind of the rich history of the house. The beautifully landscaped exterior, waiting to unfold come spring, is perfect for summer entertaining with a second stone patio near the pool and a firepit next to the woods, which abound in drystone walls. An abundance of plantings such as quince, hydrangeas, forsythia, lilacs, fruit and ornamental trees and shrubs will enchant you through all seasons. The property consists of two lots totaling 27.5 acres, most of which is untouched woods with frontage to Oak Ridge Drive. Centrally located to all that Ulster County has to offer – minutes to the Ashokan Reservoir, Mohonk Preserve, Arrowood Brewery and Westwind Orchard and very close to Catskills hiking and skiing! Enjoy a bucolic country setting just three minutes from the village of Stone Ridge.
