MOUNTAIN CHALET ON 20-ACRE PARCEL

Brand-new, architect-designed 1,800sf chalet in Kortright, NY, with 3 BRs and 2 bths, features vaulted ceilings, wide-plank wood and ceramic tile floors, solid pine interior doors, Andersen windows, and stained hemlock board-and-batten siding. A bridge from the car court leads to a 20 x 20ft deck - perfect for outdoor entertaining. The 20-acre parcel adjoins a year-round stream, and offers delightful views. List price is $350,000.

“This house is exceptionally well-thought-through,” says Ray Pucci, broker at Coldwell Banker Timberland Properties in Delhi, NY. “It uses the space well, is consistent with its environment, and sits beautifully within the property. You won’t be able to see another soul except from a distance, even though it’s a mostly open parcel with a beautiful view going out. It’s located in the north central part of Delaware County, where you’ll still find many active farms with long views, wonderful green hillsides and hardwood trees.”

A FLORIDA HOME THAT’S IDEAL
FOR GUESTS


This new 6BR waterfront home in the Tropic Isle section of Delray Beach has an elevator up to the master suite and four guest suites, plus a guest suite downstairs. Other features include Yale Ogron high-impact glass windows and doors, poured concrete floors, and gourmet kitchen with Dacor, Sub-Zero and Miele appliances. Listed at $2.695 million.

“Delray Beach is one of our hottest waterfront communities,” says Wendy Overton, agent with Allmon, Tiernan & Ely, Inc. “It’s a vibrant area that retains a considerable measure of small-town charm. This house is being built by a high-end custom builder as one of its few speculative projects, and they’ve really gone over the top with the best appliances, moldings, windows and special touches. This is a community of single-family homes, all on the water near Atlantic Avenue - Delray Beach’s trendiest area. This property’s likely to appeal to the younger buyer who wants to enjoy the beach, the shops, restaurants and nightlife.”

      UNIQUE NEW LEBANON FARMHOUSE

Located close to Tanglewood and terrific skiing, this Contemporary farmhouse sits high on a hill in a wooded area and offers spectacular views of the Berkshires and the Green Mountains. “This is a new house with an unusual degree of seclusion, whereas most early farmhouses sit on main roads,” says Carl Schools of Old Ghent Realty. “This is one of the few parts of New York where you can still get quite a lot of land for relatively little money,” Schools adds. “It’s an old-fashioned area with a lot of Colonial influence, remote but accessible from the City.”

In a section known for its fine homes, this is a wonderful 3,190sf, 4BR, 4bth house on nine and a half acres, with a long driveway. It features a formal dining room, living room with fireplace, full basement, Hardiboard siding, double-hung windows, porch/deck, and central air conditioning. Listed at $995,000.

“When you’re buying a weekend place, do your homework,” urges Pamela O’Connor, president and CEO of Chicago-based RELO. “Don’t just look at it on the weekend, but at other times as well. Is it on a flight path? Can service providers act quickly if there’s an emergency? If it’s a remote location, is it secure?”
