Truly a treasure, this unique and private Arts and Crafts home with extraordinary contemporary additions is set within an establish protected garden oasis and surrounded by 76+ acres of woodland- all just minutes to the center of Woodstock. The stone & glass home creatively weaves together two distinguished artists who deeply loved the mountainside from which this Woodstock home rises. Bruno Zimm built the home in the early 20th century.

They can be credited with shaping the course of the community.

Milton Glaser is recognized as one of the centuries top graphic designers and built his natural light filled studio overlooking an Italian inspired pool & garden from which he derives inspiration when he worked in the country (everyone knows him if they know the I LOVE NY heart logo, or Dylan psychedelic head profile). The ground floor of the home has a cozy living and dining room, with Zimm created fireplaces at either end! The sunny, sleekly renovated kitchen is spacious and opens out to the gardens and pool. A perfectly proportioned office with another fireplace is the "bridge" from which the home flows into a "cathedral" -- the 50 foot long living/ great room is perfect for entertaining & gatherings or blissful contemplation. Sliding glass doors along the long sides of this great room open to both forest and a bluestoned landscaped patio. A French boules court is adjacent to the pool..The house has three bedrooms, all in the original section of the house; one is small and all who visit enjoy the pitch of roofli
