About this listing
Beautiful house with an 18ft screened in gazebo one mile from Bard campus available to relax while enjoying Bard Summerscape , BMF or just plain country life.
It is a Mediterranean style very comfortable house from the 70ties with hard wood floors throughout the house, 2 bedrooms, music room that can be used as a 3rd bedroom, open living/dining area and a very large deck with a 18ft screened gazebo that easily holds 12 people comfortably. Plus a nice grill on the deck and you have a perfect setup for outdoor dinners and get-togethers rain or shine.
The house is located in an area that offers cultural pleasures and outdoor fun on many levels. Bard College, being only 1 mile away, has plenty of concerts to offer throughout the year and for the real music enthusiasts there is of course Summerscape and Bard Music Festival in July and August. With a 30 min drive you can also explore history by visiting the Vanderbilt Estate or Roosevelt's Presidential Library and home in Hyde Park or maybe hike and look at some art at Olana? For the spiritually inclined there is Omega about 20min drive or if you prefer just plainly walking and enjoying nature, then you can just walk out the door or take a 5 min drive and get to plenty of trails with gorgeous views of the Hudson River.
In addition you will find plentiful options for dining in Red Hook, Tivoli or Rhinebeck (which also offers a independent movie theatre) or if you prefer cooking at home, then you will enjoy being able to browse the many farms in the area and have a true farm to table experience.
Since this is my full time home, I will not be onsite when the place is rented and guests have essentially - but for some storage and utility areas - the whole house, deck and garden available.
Interaction with guests
I will not be onsite, but there will be somebody in the neighborhood who you can contact should you need any assistance with the house.
The property is located 1 mile from Bard College and about 2 miles from the town of Red Hook. While it is walkable to the Bard shuttle (30min) , life is by far more fun if one is able to drive.
Other things to note
This house is my full time home and not a designated vacation rental - therefore it holds all my personal belongings. In each of the upstairs bedrooms though, I have cleared a closet for the usage of guests.
This is a non smoking house. Dogs are fine if they are well behaved - actually the backyard is fenced and can be used as a dog run as long as the owner will clean up after the dog.
