Stone Ledge is a stylish and spacious custom contemporary home in a rural setting. Open floor plan, gourmet kitchen, updated furnishings, cozy fireplace, 4 decks, fire pit and much more. This mountain sanctuary sits on 19 acres of wilderness with beautiful valley views. Close to Plattekill Mountain and Belleayre Ski Center, wedding venues, activites and more. Stone Ledge gives you the privacy and comfort that make for a true mountain getaway. One dog considered with $200 pet fee, upon approval.

The space
Stone Ledge was designed to emphasize the mountain views. The windows were specifically placed to experience the outdoors from inside the house. Modern, simple forms with minimal materials maintain an open environment so that family and friends are in constant contact. Passive solar energy increases efficiency naturally. The house faces mostly south and gains heat through the large windows for most of the day. At night drawing the drapes keeps the daytime heat in. In the warm months windows on all sides of the house open to let the cool mountain breeze in.
The stone ledge walls are the heart of the design; the juxtaposition of layered stone with the wood siding invokes the surrounding Catskills and abundant terrains of forests with stone fences. On sunny days the stone walls absorb heat and become warm. In the summer, even late in the evening - the wall is still warm and pleasant to sit near. In winter the snow melts around the wall.

Layout Information:

Entry is through the side door. There is a half bathroom and coat closet in the entry as well as boots trays for your shoes.

The main living area is open concept with a kitchen, dining room, living room and tv room all together. Sliding doors off the dining area lead out onto the back deck where there is a BBQ grill and outdoor dining space. There are also sliding doors in the front leading out onto the expansive front porch.

There is one bedroom on the main floor that sleeps 2 people. The only bathroom on the main floor is the half bathroom.

Upstairs there are 3 more bedrooms. Two bedrooms sleep 2 people each and the third bedroom has a bunk bed with a double bed on the bottom and twin on the top, so it can sleep 3 people. There is a futon in the hallway that can sleep one person. One bathroom upstairs has a walk in shower and the other bathroom in the master bedroom has a tub/shower combo.


The property has 19 acres of woods to wander through. Here you will find lots of ferns, stone wall and a variety of trees. Seasonally there a lot of wild blueberries, raspberries and blackberries here and there. In late summer and early autumn there is an abundance of apples and crab apples to pick in the front yard, the deer enjoy them too! Sled down the driveway in the winter when the snow is packed or make your own trail from the porch down the hill. Warm up by the bonfire with a mug of hot cocoa.

No matter where you are on the property you are surrounded by peaceful natural beauty - the most perfect vacation spot you will find!
