Chalet la Za­gara!

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - REAL STATE -

The pic­turesque view of Hunter Moun­tain’s ski slopes so in­tri­cately carved into the face of the Catskill Moun­tains is what “stole the heart” of in­te­rior designer Cather­ine LaMarca and her hus­band. In the early 2000’s this rus­tic 4 bed­room, 3.5 bath log home was con­structed to cap­ture the beauty of na­ture in its most pris­tine and un­re­fined form. Sit­ting high on a hill upon 10+ rolling acres in New York’s coun­try side, the in­te­ri­ors of this rus­tic 3500+ square foot Euro­pean log home are just as aes­thet­i­cally pleas­ing as its seem­ingly un-touched coun­ter­part. Cather­ine’s in­te­rior de­sign in­cludes vivid pat­terns, zesty col­ors and unique light­ing fix­tures that not only awaken but also re­ju­ve­nate the soul. The au­then­tic Du­rango lime­stone color of the main floor in­spires the creamy tones and sets the am­biance for the per­fect week­end re­treat. The liv­ing area with a spec­tac­u­lar moun­tain­side view framed by over­sized win­dow panes is well de­signed to re­flect some French flair with high ceil­ing, and ex­posed trusses and de­liv­ers an as­ton­ish­ing view of Hunter Moun­tain ski slopes. The mas­sive fire­place com­mis­sioned for this project and carved from solid pieces of Du­rango lime­stone pro­vides an ad­di­tional fo­cal point in the room as well as sets out to warm up the most chill­ing of nights. The open floor plan al­lows you to strate­gi­cally place your fur­ni­ture to op­ti­mize the view as well as en­joy the beau­ti­ful fire­place. The kitchen has all high-end stain­less steel ap­pli­ances along with sig­na­ture cherry wood cab­i­netry and a farm sink. The back­splash be­hind the WOLFE stove is cov­ered in hand­made Ital­ian ce­ramic ti­tle. The im­ported Stat­u­ary Cal­cutta mar­ble counter tops, un­doubt­edly one of the most lux­u­ri­ous ma­te­ri­als in the world, add that gor­geous, high-end de­sir­able look. The grand island and open din­ing area per­mits room for en­ter­tain­ing and tra­di­tional cel­e­bra­tions. Down the hall you will find 2 bed­rooms and 1½ bath­rooms. The ½ bath­room or pow­der room is beau­ti­fully de­signed, the floor is cov­ered with mar­ble with an an­tiqued fin­ish, and the walls are tiled up to 4 feet in a com­bi­na­tion of stone and ar­ti­san hand-painted Ma­jolica pot­tery, im­ported from Italy. The up­per walls are fin­ished with an at­trac­tive and el­e­gant 3D Vene­tian stucco fin­ish that en­hances the light and dark tones cre­at­ing a clas­sic Euro­pean look. The van­ity was de­signed and built in Tus­cany with a com­bi­na­tion of wood and wrought iron. Sconces are high-end sig­na­ture Ital­ian light­ing im­ported from Italy as well. As a fi­nal touch, the faucet is Rohl with a hand rubbed bronze fin­ish. The Main Bath is a com­bi­na­tion of a bit coun­try and a bit con­tem­po­rary. All faucets are Ital­ian con­tem­po­rary fix­tures and the walls are a com­bi­na­tion of hand­made white ce­ramic tiles and 1x1 Bisazza glass mo­saics for that flaw­less ap­pear­ance. All plumb­ing fix­tures are Kohler, faucets are Rohl in pol­ished chrome and all ac­ces­sories are sig­na­ture in cast bronze and hand wrought iron. The 550+/- square foot loft that in­cludes the mas­ter suit over-looks the liv­ing room and has a mas­ter bath that cre­ates the feel of a per­sonal day spa in a week­end get­away. The mas­ter bath in­cludes a steam shower as well as a lux­u­ri­ously sized soak­ing tub. The cus­tom van­ity in­cludes a grey lime­stone counter top with a sink that was carved from a solid piece of gran­ite. Two of the bath­room walls as well as the steam shower are clad with large for­mat grey lime­stone from floor to ceil­ing. The sep­a­rate mas­ter suite of­fers a pri­vate sanc­tu­ary high above the liv­ing room be­low. To ac­com­mo­date ex­tra guests the ground floor houses a spa­cious guest bed­room and a full bath com­plete with a shower tiled in glass mo­saic. The main space of this bath is also tiled to the ceil­ing with designer tiles. The large gath­er­ing area on this floor with its open floor plan has a mag­nif­i­cent view of Hunter Moun­tain through the floor to ceil­ing win­dow and doors as well as South­ern ex­po­sure.
