Inside Look: Woodstock compound features artist’s studio, private athletic club on 24 acres

While the Hamptons is notorious known as a playground for the wealthy — Woodstock, New York has it’s fair share ofcelebrities.

The area — which will forever be associated with the ’60s music festival that actually ended up happening in a nearby town — still has the same hippie vibe of that era.

The views of the Catskill Mountains and natural setting also makes the town attractive to artists of all types and anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

Though it’s easy to find more land and house for your buck here than New York City — Woodstock still boasts luxurious properties.

Take for example the $5.25 millionHughenden estate for saleby theArtists Rights Enforcement, a legal group that helps get back foyalties for artists.

The listing takes the term compound to a whole level, with 24-acres, three homes, an artist’s studio and private athletic club.

Located just a five-minute drive from town and 100 miles from Manhattan, it features open views of the Catskill Mountains, an outdoor saltwater pool, an indoor heated swimming pool and both outdoor and heated indoor tennis courts.

The “Main House” has 10 rooms, including a screening room, art gallery and game room; and the “Stone House” has seven rooms as well as a three-car detached garage.

A smaller “Guest House,” designed and built by iconic Woodstock Architect Cary Cook, provides a screened-in porch and lofted master suite, while the artist’s studio is heated for year-round creative endeavors.

The athletic club may be the real attraction, with a retractable roof and heated 40-foot indoor swimming pool. There is also a sundeck and bar with a wood burning fireplace. The place is like a true club with an indoor heated tennis court, and men’s and women’s full locker rooms each with separate saunas. A sign of ultimate luxury, there is also a private apartment below the club, “perfect” for the “estate’s caretaker.”

Suggestions for the estate include a private residence or weekend retreat, that could even be used partially for a horse farm.

“Recording artists and producers will find the secluded compound a great destination to record music undisturbed and allow those creative juices to flow,” its listing, from The Anders / Ekroth Team at Douglas Elliman, reads.
