Twin Rivers

A wonder of woodwork and sharp deta


Just in time for curling up by a toasty fireplace, this stunning Narrowsburg, NY home is ready for its new family. Twin Rivers is named for its frontage on both Ten Mile River and Perry Pond Brook. 

Built in 2015, the house showcases unparalleled attention to detail and beautiful woodwork.

Shingle siding with white trim lends a New England air to the exterior. Exposed gables and a wide front porch draw your attention, too. 

Stone pillars support a multitude of Craftsman-esque wood columns on the porch and front steps. The front door has twin sidelights and a transom overhead. It leads to a spacious foyer in minty green with thick crown molding on the ceiling and trim. From there, the great room unfolds before you.

The cathedral ceiling in the great room is lined with tongue-and-groove cherrywood. At one end, a puzzle of windows climbs from the floor to the ceiling, punctuated by two sets of sliding glass doors that lead to the rear deck. Warm, cozy nights are foretold by a stacked-stone fireplace that also reaches the ceiling. 

Opposite the window wall is a sweeping staircase that winds around and up to a bumped-out balcony before ending in a sweet sitting area overlooking the great room. Underneath the stairs is a view of the gourmet chef’s kitchen.  

Big enough to entertain a crowd, the kitchen is a standout: furniture-grade cherry cabinets feature carved legs, corbels and other fancy elements such as an open dish rack near the sink. 

Acres of dark Brazilian granite countertops ramble atop the cabinets and on the oversized, multi-level center island. A four-seater breakfast bar on the island is flanked by twin workspaces. 

A 60-inch, six-burner gas cooktop includes a 24-inch indoor grill; the backsplash is custom tile, with a tile mural in the center of it. Nearby are two wall ovens, along with a warming drawer; all appliances are stainless steel, including the oversized side-by-side refrigerator. 

Cleanup is easier with a full-size Bosch dishwasher and smaller dishwasher drawers from Fischer + Paykel. A walk-in pantry ensures plenty of storage.

The formal dining room is dressed with cherry-red walls and a rich cherry floor. More informal dining can be had in the family room, which also has room for a cozy sectional and TV.

Head upstairs for the bedroom level, which has more “wow” factors then you can count.

The primary bedroom has sliding glass doors out to the deck and light-green walls that complement the cherry floor. 

The primary ensuite bath is nothing short of spectacular: a soaking tub is encased in rich wood paneling and topped with marble. A built-in hutch above it can stash soaps, books, even a beverage or two. Next to the tub is a standalone shower lined in tumbled-marble tile. A built-in bench, travertine tile floor and a shower system that includes both handheld and overhead shower heads finishes off this sumptuous oasis. 

A walk-in closet has built-in drawers and shelves to organize your entire wardrobe.

Two guest bedrooms have an ensuite bath with showers each—and all rooms feature the same exquisite crown molding and cherry flooring.

Another wood staircase climbs from this floor to an unfinished third floor, which has electricity already installed. Imagine a writer’s retreat, a playroom or an entertainment cave in this top-floor space!

The 2,000-square-foot, unfinished basement has 10-foot ceilings and would be perfect for a bar area. Outside, the wide rear deck wraps around the back of the house, providing views of the 32-acre property and its twin rivers. Sit outside in the mornings to sip coffee and say hello to the eagles that regularly visit the area.

The private setting is a true oasis, an escape from the day-to-day hustle and bustle; yet civilization can be had just seven minutes away in downtown Narrowsburg (grab a warm beverage and a sandwich at Tusten Cup), and it’s just 2.5 miles to Henning’s Local for Norwegian-inspired dishes and drinks.
