SUN-DRENCHED LOG HOME LIVING Looking to reconnect with nature, to find a retreat and refuge that inspires as well as nurtures? With EXPANSIVE VIEWS that soothe and excite, your cares will drift away on the updraft that circulates from the Ouleout Creek and valley floor below this LOG HOME. It's designed to help blur the line between outside and inside. With LARGE OVER-SIZED WINDOWS, VAULTED CEILING and EIGHT-FOOT TALL DOORS, sweeping views greet you at nearly every turn. Enjoy beautiful sunrises over the mountain as you sip your morning coffee, or entertain guests on the large deck, sweeping lawn, or even at the fire-pit half-way down the hill-side. This CUSTOM-BUILT ALTA LOG HOME has true built-in value, making the property a joy to live in, and a pleasure to own and operate. ALTA makes superior log homes and this home exemplifies the expert craftsmanship that goes into each building. With 5+ FULL PRIVATE BEDROOMS and 3 BATHs, this home COMFORTABLY SLEEPS 12 or more. And its open layout, deck and large yard make entertaining and gathering a breeze. Invite friends and family for summer cookouts, fall leaf peeping or winter ski retreats. There's space enough for everyone to have privacy, inside or out. Whether dining on the LARGE DECK, roasting smores at the fire pit, or just lounging on the patio, the backdrop to your activity is breathtaking. The gorgeous valley view, with the mountains beyond, extends endlessly in front of you. The home has tongue-and-groove WOOD FLOORS throughout (even downstairs) and 5 (possibly 6) bedrooms. The kitchen opens out to a large dining area, with convenient SLIDING DOORS out to the 19x18 deck overlooking the valley. An ENTIRE WALL of energy-efficient ANDERSON WINDOWS in the large living room serves to bring the best of the outdoors in while keeping the wind and cold out. 3 bedrooms and 2 and a half bathrooms upstairs, and 2 (possibly 3) bedrooms and one large bathroom / laundry room downstairs makes a perfect family nest or great vacation / guest retreat. Walk out from the downstairs family-room onto a pleasant patio to enjoy the valley view before you. TROUBLE FREE UTILITIES, including on-demand hot-water heater, and whole-house propane generator make for years of carefree living. Even though you feel like you're miles away from it all, the property is just MINUTES FROM the cultural riches of FRANKLIN and ONEONTA. Situated on 11+ acres, outside historic Franklin Village, it is far enough from NYC to be a true escape, but close enough for an easy drive and is ideal as a FULL-TIME HOME, WEEKEND GETAWAY OR EVEN A GREAT RENTAL.
