For $2.5M, This Woodstock Estate Comes With Three Stone Homes, A Koi Pond, A Treehouse, And More


It makes sense that this upstate estate shares the same folksy, comfortable feel as its Woodstock, New York location. Its current owner is Michael Lang, co-creator of the Woodstock Music Festival in 1969. Set on nearly 17 acres, the property features a 5,000-square-foot main stone house, a second stone home, a cottage with a greenhouse, a koi pond, a pool, an orchard, a treehouse, and gorgeous mountain views. Known as Happy Brooks, the estate was built in 1929 and is now on the market for $2,450,000.

The main stone and wood house is more than 5,000 square feet and has five bedrooms.

The great room has 20-foot cathedral ceilings with upper mezzanines, a bluestone fireplace, and several nooks.

Other highlights of the main house include a 15-foot-wide stone fireplace in the den and a glass conservatory with a 24-foot glass ceiling and an amazing chandelier. Throughout are slate and old hardwood floors.

Three of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and a deck. In the basement, there are two more bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and laundry.

The two-bedroom guest house is highlighted by a double-height den with a bluestone fireplace and intricate wood carvings in an Asian theme. A large living/dining room has wrap-around windows and wood paneling.

The third structure is the stone cottage with an attached greenhouse.

Also on the property is a four-stall barn and a koi pond.

Other on-site perks include a 60,000-gallon oval lined cement pool, a 28′ X 17′ picnic gazebo overlooking an orchard, a shady stone courtyard, and tons of wildflowers and trees.

Happy Brooks is just two hours from New York City.
