Description for 148 Lewis Hollow Woodstock, NY 12498
Truly a treasure, this unique and private Arts and Crafts home with extraordinary contemporary additions is set within an establish protected garden oasis and surrounded by 76+ acres of woodland- all just minutes to the center of Woodstock. The stone & glass home creatively weaves together two distinguished artists who deeply loved the mountainside from which this Woodstock home rises. Bruno Zimm built the home in the early 20th century. It is his poetic mastery of stone & wood carving, full of spirit & craft, which one discovers both inside & out with Zimm's carvings & inscriptions in wood & stone. Milton & Shirley Glaser, the homes second owner, have been magnets drawling iconic figures to Woodstock during the last half century and can be credited with shaping the course of the community for these past 50 years. They have artfully added the contemporary esthetic & sensibility of glass & light balancing perfectly Zimm's stone & solid arts & crafts approach. Milton Glaser is recognized as one of the last centuries top graphic designers and created his natural light filled studio overlooking an Italian inspired pool & garden from which he derives inspiration when at work in the country (everyone knows him if they know the I LOVE NY heart logo, or Dylan psychedelic head profile). The ground floor of the home has a cozy living and dining room, with Zimm created fireplaces at either end! The sunny, sleekly renovated kitchen is large and opens out to the gardens and pool. A perfectly proportioned office with another fireplace is the "bridge" from which the home flows into a "cathedral" -- the 50 foot long living/ great room perfect for entertaining & gatherings or blissful contemplation. Sliding glass doors along the long sides of this great room open to both forest and a bluestoned landscaped patio. A regulation size (French ) boules court is adjacent to the pool..The house has three bedrooms in the original section of the house; one is small and all enjoy the pitch of roofline & dormer windows. Two full baths are on the second floor. The gardens have been lovingly cared for for many years with many perennials and a completed underground water system. At the far end of the pool area a country gate opens to hours of pristine woodland exploration.. and the long side of property borders state land while the stream runs along the McGee side of the property. A future owner may want to build a second home or family compound and could cross the stream by building another bridge.
