Cobleskill mixes traditional with modern
Classical columns support the colonial-style Cobleskill's stately portico. Architectural symmetry, keystone arches, shuttered windows and an entry palladian window add authentic detailing. The interior is a blend of traditional and modern.
A formal living room and dining room flank the elegant two-story foyer, their cased openings bounded by ornamental columns. Both rooms are richly windowed and the dining room has a built-in hutch. The rooms upstairs and to the rear are much more relaxed. From the second floor balcony, you can overlook the foyer and a vaulted great room which is partially open to the kitchen.
A brick fireplace serves as a warm focal point at the Cobleskill's heart. Windows fill most of the high wall to the rear, so this space is naturally bright on all but the darkest days. French doors swing open on a den with a raised panel ceiling, and from there you can open sliders that lead into one of two screened porches.
The second porch is off the sunny eating nook at the far end of a large country kitchen. It's just right for shaded, breezy meals when the weather is too hot to stay inside. Other kitchen features include: a raised eating bar/work island, step-in pantry, built-in desk with shelves, and a convenient utility room that's also adjacent to the garage. A wide deck spans the rear and wraps around to the left.
Two huge walk-in closets provide ample storage in the Cobleskill's master suite while the luxurious bathroom boasts a dual vanity, walk-in shower and private toilet. Upstairs, two bedrooms share another bathroom.
