397 Moonhaw Road< Shandaken, NY: Private Mountain Top Serenity in the Catskills

A legacy estate perfect for hosting family, friends or professional colleagues, “Twin Creeks” raises the bar for luxury living in the Hudson Valley and Catskills to a level more typically seen in Vail, Aspen or Jackson Hole. Beautifully situated behind stone pillars at the very end of woodsy Moonhaw Road, the property is surrounded by thousands of acres of forever-wild state forest, with the main buildings nestled between two babbling branches of the picture-worthy Wittenberg Brook. The main house, designed by renowned architect Murray Arnott, blends the grandeur of ancient Alaskan timbers, some 6 feet in circumference, with muted elegance and artisan-crafted finishes at every turn, including the 7 principal bedrooms, each with its own luxury en-suite bathroom. The main public floor features a grand gallery that opens dramatically to a lodge-like living and dining room with cathedral ceilings. That space is centered on an epic double-sided stone fireplace and ringed entirely by a wide bluestone terrace offering every available vantage point to enjoy the mountain and water views. A massive gourmet kitchen also flows easily to the outdoors and is supplemented by a second kitchen in the finished basement, plus an additional catering kitchen. The property also features a second building, a bright and soaring studio with loft and front porch, reached by crossing a bridge over the brook. A 2-hour drive from Manhattan and convenient to Woodstock, the Ashokan Reservoir and popular ski resorts, “Twin Creeks” is an unforgettable place, inside and out, to retreat, reflect and recharge.
