Hidden Fox is an architecturally significant and quintessentially Millbrook home on 28+ acres giving access to miles of riding and hiking trails. The light-infused foyer has hand-painted wallpaper and draws you into the house laid out splendidly around it. Your eye is drawn to the left-a double parlor, divisible by pocket doors, with double fireplaces and many windows, and to the right-a formal dining room. Off the dining room, you’ll find a morning room with coffered ceilings, built-ins, and a cushioned window seat. A motif throughout the home is the use of vivid lacquer paint, underlining the overlap of home-style warmth with chic decor. Not a detail is overlooked. The east hallway accesses a potting room that gives way to the garden, and a bar that opens to a warm and cozy library with fireplace. From the east wing and its two-story covered porch and boxwood-enclosed lawn, there are views of the mountains. The butler’s pantry has its own oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, and deep farmhouse sink. The Christopher Peacock kitchen is a focal point-a family gathering room, warmed by sunshine or firelight. The kitchen opens to its own covered porch with fireplace, pristine tongue-in-groove ceiling, view of the pool, and comfortable seating for extended family and weekend guests. On the second floor, there are five bedrooms and two sitting rooms, one of which has pride of place on a broad landing with a family-sized window seat. There are two primary suites. One of them has a fireplace and one overlooks the property from its sun deck. In the annex you’ll find a large playroom flooded with natural light, arts and crafts studio, and office overlooking the grounds through a massive picture window, as well as a guest room, full bath, and easy access to the pool through French doors. This perfectly renovated home offers details that elevate a visitor’s experience, providing privacy for contemplation as well as warm communal spaces. Brass window screens, wide, hardwood floors, and seven working fireplaces provide flawless touches to a singularly desirable family home. Hidden Fox boasts a refined landscape with tidy hedges and impeccable stone walls, a pond, small livestock barn, and discrete equipment barn. 24-48 hours notice required for accompanied showings.,AboveGrade:5742,AMENITIES:Pool,Basement:Interior Access,Cooling:Zoned,EQUIPMENT:Smoke Detectors,ExteriorFeatures:Landscaped,Outside Lighting,FLOORING:Tile,Wood,FOUNDATION:Concrete,Stone,InteriorFeatures:French Doors,Walk-In Closets,Washer Connection,Other School:PRIVATE,OTHERROOMS:Family Room,Formal Dining Room,Foyer,Laundry/Util.
