Build the Homestead of your dreams in bucolic Hudson Valley, New York. Consisting of two Dutchess County country parcels, this 53 acre opportunity has not been for sale in nearly six decades. Located off a quiet Stanford town road, you enter the private Saint Bernard Way. One parcel is 7.6 acres and the larger is 45.34. In years past, the property was used raising cattle and other livestock. Starting in the late 60’s the smaller parcel was home to High Chateau Kennels; world renowned, championship top pedigree Saint Bernard breeders. The influence High Chateau has on this dog breed will be forever lasting. The existing structures on the property are a complete re-store or to be taken down. The remaining acreage is a mix of gentle, buildable elevations with plenty of wooded mature growth. The parcels are surrounded by rock walls on the boundaries from farmer owners of the past. In addition, a small pond is located at the entrance drive. A larger pond is located nearby and this property includes a small section of water frontage for access; for swimming, canoeing and enjoyment. All of this is nearby the shopping + dining towns of Millbrook, Pine Plains, Rhinebeck, Millerton and more. Metro North or Amtrak also nearby. This is just two hours from New York City. Welcome to the Hudson Valley.
