A-Frame cabin is a magical woodland retreat in the Catskill Mountains

a-frame-cabin-exterior

This sleek 1960s A-frame cabin retreat was renovated by AHG Interiors, perched on a hilltop in the Catskills of southeastern New York State. Surrounded by forest and mountain peaks, this unfussy yet elegant design features modern shapes, furnishings, and material finishes that soften and enhances the dwelling’s architecture and natural setting. Natural light and airiness can be found throughout.

The homeowner worked with a contractor to replace the roof, rewire the electrical, update the plumbing, and install new insulation. Every thoughtful detail updated in this home adds softness and a magical feel thanks to the forested setting. The finished result transforms a dilapidated cabin into a modern, bright and airy home for family and friends. Continue below to see images before the renovation!

What We Love: This A-frame cabin retreat provides bright and airy interiors thanks to light walls, windows, skylights, and wood floors stripped and stained to a light tone. Lower level porches help to extend the outdoor spaces to enjoy this home’s tranquil surroundings. Screens in the living room are seamless to the front porch, blurring indoor-outdoor boundaries while allowing fresh breezes during the summer months.

A clever peekaboo aesthetic enlivens many of the cabin’s new design elements―invisible touches of lucite, accented brass surfaces,
oversized mirrors, and windows and glass partitions in the spa bathrooms, which provides all the comfort of a luxury hotel, and the feeling
that you are bathing in nature.

Stonework, scattered around the sprawling 5-acre property, leads you to several lounging nooks, where you can stretch out with a good book or take a soak in the hot tub.
