Description

TWIN CREEKS IS AN ELF LORD'S FOREST RETREAT AT THE WORLD'S BEGINNING hides at the end of the remote Moonhaw Rd amidst the high central Catskill Mountains, above West Shokan on the Ashokan Reservoir headwaters. This gem is placed between two virgin trout streams in a precious setting within the primordial Forever Wild State Forest. There is a wide panorama of several mountains climbing in the distance above the forest canopy. You can try to wrap your arms around the enormous Post and Beam logs, but how can you wrap your mind around this enchanted Tolkien property? The 3D walkthru tour of the home is at: [https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=kpQtz9jSvzx&brand=0] Please see the aerial video of the property at: [https://vimeo.com/719253403/deb3bbbc5a] This Shangri-la custom architected luxurious open space home with a dramatic three story cathedral entry foyer is built with massive two foot diameter ancient Alaskan timbers supporting cathedral ceilings and artistically crafted cherry hardwood trim. Truly a legacy home, this unique lodge-like home would be recognized in the glamorous world of the Rocky Mountains. "Twin Creeks was built in 2009 by renowned architect Murray Arnott found in several prestigious publications, is nestled beyond the stone pillars and arched stone bridge cupped gently between the confluence of two untouched mountainside streams of Cornell and Wittenberg mountains. Many thousands of acres of the NY State forestland surrounds this hole-in-the-donut above 1,300 feet elevation amidst the tranquility of wilderness surrounded by the high peaks up to 3,800 feet of Hanover, Balsam Cap, Friday, Cornell, Terrace, and Cross Mountains. This wilderness region has few access points nearby so is relatively untouched and private for hunting, fishing, and hiking with abundant flora and fauna. The broad lawns offer recreation and entertainment opportunities that could host special events. Venue opportunities for Weddings, Conferences, Retreats, Parties, Family gatherings, your imagination, though these could be subject to Planning Board review. This amazing executive retreat or dramatic private home is easily reached within two hours from NY City. Nearby are the quaint villages of Phoenicia, Bearsville, Woodstock, and Margaretville with arts and crafts and fine dining, or just enjoying their theaters and music. Nearby is a deli, town swimming pool, town park, several formal walking trails, and shopping is in nearby Boiceville. All outdoor four season activities are readily available for walking and biking around the Ashokan Reservoir, trout fishing and kayaking on the Esopus Creek, hiking and hunting within high peaks of the Central Catskill Mountains, with the solitude of the vast "Forever Wild" state forest all around. This home is located about 20 minutes from Woodstock, Mohonk, Phoenicia, Belleayre Mt. and a bit longer to Hunter Mt. for skiing or zip-line. It also borders some of the greatest Catskill Mountain hiking trails including several jaunts that are on par with the best natural ecosystems in America, including the extraordinary Ashokan Reservoir Rail Trail. The first floor is open space with full height stone two face fireplaces between the windowed living room and dining room. A grand hallway through the middle of the home opens to the large open space gourmet kitchen facing a stream and private rooms on either side. These rooms open to a wrap around blue-stone patio positioned above the two mountain streams. The Studio Cottage, also a solid log structure, is hiding in the forest across the stream from the main house with entry over a secure wooden walkway bridge. It has an open floorplan first floor of over 700 SqFt and above is an open loft balcony second floor.

Extras: There are six second and third floor bedrooms are reached with the cast iron railed, massive central wooden staircase. All are with ensuite bathrooms, radiantly heated, and have private open sitting porches facing the wilderness and sumptuous landscaped g
