Built circa 1840, this Federal style home is a beautiful balance between the old and the new, rustic and sleek. There are many surprising and wonderful aspects to this compelling property consisting of the main house, the guest house/studio, an oversized garage - all on 19.50 beautiful acres.
The MAIN HOUSE has been reimagined and upgraded from the original structure while still maintaining charming original details. On entering the house through the mud room, there is a stone floor and custom made cherry cabinetry. The living room features hardwood floors, open beamed ceilings, a fireplace and is flooded with natural light. The galley kitchen has solid surface counter tops, custom made cross-cut oak cabinets and a large stainless farm sink. Open beamed ceilings, large windows, beautiful natural light and hard wood floors make the family room comfortable and inviting. Just off of the family room is a full bathroom. Upstairs you will find the 3 bedrooms and another full bath. The bedrooms feature post and beam elements.
The house is heated and cooled with geothermal technology and electrified with solar electric making it extremely inexpensive to maintain - this an eco friendly property adding both value and environmental sensitivity. The Galvalume Standing Seam metal roof is a thing of beauty while offering many years of functionality. Hardy Board siding ensures years of worry free maintenance.
The GUEST HOUSE/STUDIO is simply stunning in every aspect, it is sleek, minimal and gorgeous. On the first level there is a large open room with a kitchenette and bathroom. Upstairs is a dramatic space with 13 foot ceilings, impressive curved beams, built in cabinetry, a Juliette balcony and it is flooded with an abundance of light from the many windows. This space could be a guest house, an artist studio, a writers retreat…or who knows?
There are extensive, well established perennial gardens, old growth trees and a park like setting. The stone patio is a great place to take in the mountain views and peaceful setting. There are 5 tax parcels giving the property the flexibility for a possible family compound. Back up generators for both buildings give the homeowner peace of mind in the event of an electrical outage.
Located on a quiet country road close to skiing, hiking, tubing on the Esopus and much more. 2.5 hours from NYC make this an ideal country retreat. For additional information please contact Jeffrey Ashton at 973-650-0035 or email@example.com
