Moosebeck is a unique 300-acre estate. We have enjoyed this enchanting property with family and friends for 33 years. The estate is privately nestled in the foothills of the Shawangunk Mountains, less than 90 miles from Manhattan. A villa, lodge, and cottage totalling over 8,000 square feet of living space, with 9 bedrooms and 6.5 baths create a secluded family retreat.
The stone villa was built in 2008, over a period of 6 years from stone and wood harvested from the property. Completed in 2008, this 5,000+ square foot stone castle inspired mansion has a 20-foot beamed cathedral ceiling in the great room with light shining through handmade leaded glass windows. At the center of this magnificent home is a European-style courtyard with two fountains, medieval cloister, balcony and outdoor chessboard. Delight in the kitchen with large viking stove and ovens, Sub-Zero appliances and two Bosch dishwashers. Large teak island has a prep sink, refrigerator drawers and lots of storage. Granite countertops, a large walk-in pantry and an octagonal dining area will invite you to stay in the kitchen. Or use the dining room that easily seats 12 and enjoy the warm light passing through the stained glass windows.
The second residence is the lodge, a 4-bedroom stone and log home, parts of which date back to the 1850's.
The third home is a 2-bedroom cottage perfect for guests, a caretaker, or nanny. By the lodge and cottage is the heated in-ground pool and spa with patio, stone cabana, and stone stacked pergola.
There is a magical stone tea house with beamed ceiling stained glass skylight, and vintage wood stove. The 3-bay barn/garage has a large artist studio above. There are two other outbuildings for storage. The lodge and cottage are highly sought after properties on AirBnB, netting over $40,000 during the summer weekends. There is also income potential for renting during the hunting season and winter. Your family will treasure this unique combination of natural beauty, privacy, and luxurious living.
