Adventure begins on Oblong Mountain's 452 acres with a one-mile incline to an Adirondack-style cottage, wrapped in climbing hydrangea and nestled between twin ponds. This magical wooded setting provides complete solitude yet multiple opportunities for sporting and outdoor activities. A five-bedroom retreat, Oblong Mountain House is distinguished by its interior architecture and design creating a seamless connection of interior spaces with the outdoor elements provided by nature's best. The master suite includes a balcony with pond views as well as an interior balcony office space. Sunlight soaks the living spaces, which have access through French doors to the decks, ponds and forest paths. Boating, swimming, fishing, ice skating or cross country skiing, camping and outdoor cooking are but a few of the activities that can be enjoyed. Revolutionary Era logging roads web the property, encouraging meandering walks or spirited hiking to the mountain top aerie-overlook. A Norman Rockwellian eastward viewshed of distant farms, fields and river is reminiscent of Americana's golden age of a century ago. At the base of the mountain the property's entrance passes 40-plus pastured acres, including a rustic-style barn with eight stalls. This lower elevation also has several hundred feet of border on Webutuck Creek, a brown trout stream perfect for fly fishing. Here the possibilities for Millennial Agra-ventures are endless. Minutes from Metro-North and the village of Amenia, you find crossroads north to the Berkshires, east to Litchfield Hills, west to the Hudson Valley and South to NYC. "Each moment of the year has its own beauty"-- Ralph Waldo Emerson.
