An iconic, sprawling center hall colonial, built in 1830, was once the majestic centerpiece of a 512-acre working farm. Completely renovated in 2022, the home is steeped with history and the pinnacle of chic country living. Entering past the row of Doric columns across the home’s facade, visitors become immersed in combined grandeur and warm comfort. Every inch of this home is full of light flowing through enormous windows and French doors. The living room opens both to the north and south via large windows and is brightened further with a wood burning fireplace. Beyond the living room is the library lined on three sides by windows. Beautifully lacquered walls and bookshelves and another wood burning fireplace make this an ideal setting for reading books, playing games, or relaxing. Opposite the center hall is a formal dining room with its own fireplace and two sets of French doors leading to the front veranda. A dreamy, fully renovated kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances has a large island, plenty of workspace, and opens to an informal living room for cozy play and casual entertaining. A butler’s pantry with wet bar off the dining room adds versatility for dining and entertaining. In the west wing, a sunlit hallway leads to a sauna, full bath, home office or gym. Completing the first floor is a mudroom with ample cubby space. Upstairs, the east side of the center hall is occupied by a four-room primary suite a bedroom with fireplace, sitting room or office, custom built dressing room, and beautifully renovated five fixture bathroom with a deep soaking tub and meadow views. Opposite the hall are three additional bedrooms plus an office and a full bathroom. Guest bedrooms can also be reached from a second staircase. The house has pride of place on eleven pristine, landscaped acres. Included in this park-like setting is a pool with stone terrace and adjacent pergola-shaded dining area. In addition, there are low-maintenance gardens, meadows, playing fields, and a spring fed pond. Located nine miles from Millbrook, eleven miles from Rhinebeck, and within easy reach of the Taconic State Parkway, the home is easily accessible from NYC and New England. The property and its neighboring properties are protected from subdivision and development by conservation with the Dutchess Land Conservancy. 24 hours notice required for accompanied showing.
