Onward and upward Up high – at the highest point in Woodstock, in fact – Quarry Overlook has sweeping views: of the town below, and the Catskill Mountains beyond. The dining room leads out to a decked terrace, and the sitting room is similarly scenic: the fireplace is natural stone, the palette is an uplifting blue, and the corner sofa sits by two walls of wilderness-facing picture windows. And higher up? Only the summit of Overlook Mountain, and the three bedrooms. This home is well-placed for hikers, and the hosts have provided a map of their favourite trails. You’re close to Cooper Lake, a scenic walking spot, and it’s a 45-minute drive from Kaaterskill Falls, the famous two-drop waterfall. From there, it’s a short drive west to Hunter Mountain, popular in the winter months with skiers and snowboarders. But the attraction closest to home is Woodstock center. You can see it from the window, and its cafes, antique shops and restaurants – including wood-fired pizzerias and Japanese noodle bars – make it well worth the short drive downhill. How to get there Quarry Overlook is around a two hour drive from New York City. You’ll need a car to get to Woodstock, as well as some hiking hotspots. High spectacle The front door leads from the circular driveway straight into the sitting room. A modular cream sofa has walls of picture windows to the right, and the fireplace, opposite, is full height. To the left, marbled worktops and pendant lights give the kitchen a contemporary look. The kitchen leads to the dining room (with a table for seven) and a door to the deck where there’s a barbecue – and panoramic views. The second sitting room is adjacent, with a TV and a sofabed. To the right of the entrance is the toy-filled nursery, the king-size master bedroom (and ensuite), and a staircase that leads to the first floor. Up here is a bathroom with natural stone flooring, as well as two double bedrooms with windows overlooking the mountainside. Back outside is the garden, with a play area tucked among the trees.
