Irresistable! Christened The Brookside Home when built in 1900 as part of original Byrdcliffe Arts Colony, this is one of the few Byrdcliffe homes that's privately owned. It has been impeccably renovated in high style with hand-plastered walls, vaulted ceilings & new ridge beams, custom windows & doors, vintage designer lighting, updated and beautifully tiled chimney, new stone floors in kitchen, new interior woodwork with steel hardware and many unique hand-crafted features. Floor to ceiling glass doors along the back of the house open to a large bluestone patio that looks out over the park-like half acre and the serene salt water gunite pool (heated, of course) that's backed by sculptural stone walls. The wood-fired pizza oven, imported from Italy, is a great excuse to entertain on the patio and the screened porch offers another venue for enjoying the outdoors. A separate building with comfortable guest suite also makes use of tall glass & steel doors to foster a connection to the outdoors. Great care was taken in the renovation, including details that are not immediately apparent in a walkthrough; ( complete list available). Standing seam metal roof, custom stainless steel rain gutters, a surveillance system, a generator, driveway improvements, a buried propane tank & underground electric - a true luxury.
