For Sale

This 2 story, 2000+ square foot uniquely and culturally appropriated property invites you to play artist and writer to your Robber Baron neighbor, affording a ‘rich for the senses’ vista you never tire of.

Add in the sound, from your back patio, of gentle rushing water over the fieldstone dam where you’ll also experience glorious sunsets, you find yourself particularly content enjoying all of this within its’ just right ‘remoteness’ –feeling tucked away in a beautiful natural setting but less than a 10 minute drive from Glen Spey, Eldred or Barryville.

Originally built in the mid-1940’s, Pine Knot has been wholly transformed by its current artist and architect owners to accommodate year round living with an open plan layout, new dove gray hardwood flooring throughout, designer kitchen and bathrooms, as well as modern interventions that bring in more light and air while still retaining all the warmth and charm of its own knotty pine heritage.

The lodge-like living room features original deep-cherry stained paneling with a vaulted, exposed beam ceiling, skylights and mezzanine master suite overlook, plus a wood burning stove set in a rustic architectural surrounding that beckons you to get lost in the dancing flames. Step through a wall of glass sliders opening onto the waterfront patio where you’ll light up the barby or fire pit or simply wander down to your launch dock for a circumnavigation by kayak. The open kitchen is complete with state of the art appliances, cozy built-in corner banquette, plenty of cabinet storage, wrap around windows framing abundant wildlife sightings from turkeys up the driveway to berry nibbling deer, and a vaulted clean white ceiling with skylights as well. As the kitchen opens into the living room, which opens into the playroom, shoot a round of billiards or roll board game die in a space that gives way to yet another outdoor area, this one affording the view of your backyard tennis court and in-ground pool.

This home resides on the original grounds of the 3,000 acre Brookwood Estate owned by William F. Proctor, as the Glen Spey area once served as New York City magnates seasonal playground of choice. Mr. Proctor’s zest and rigor to bring a bit of ‘Old English countryside living’ is your reward on each trek here, beginning with the long serpentine approach, lined by towering pines, that sets you up for something pretty spectacular at its end every time. This property also features a 2 car garage, 750sf guest house, original outdoor oversized fieldstone BBQ and your own private 8ft square floating dock anchored in the middle of Loch Ada Lake -a pristine, trout stocked, home association monitored sanctuary that allows no motor powered watercraft.
