This historic Second Empire Victorian combines classic architectural details like the Mansard roof and arched dome top windows with the simple lines of modern updates for a unique and stunning property. Originally built by the Knickerbocker family, this home has been lovingly maintained and updated by current owners. Set on pretty level lot landscaped with lots of beautiful flowering plants and gardens abutted on two sides by 5 acres of forever parkland which affords the privacy of acreage without the work. Step inside from one of the multiple porches and experience the seamless blend of old and new. The formal Living Room with American Clay walls flows into the Family Room with Inglenook seating and Tulekivi soapstone fireplace from Finland. The old-fashioned Parlor is currently used as a Music Room but could be Den or Bedroom. The Kitchen has lots of new windows to let the sunlight in and boasts resin countertops and concrete farmhouse sink, as well as stainless refrigerator and double oven range. Sip your morning coffee in the screened Breakfast porch off the spacious Dining Area. Lots of storage to be found in the large Pantry. There is a brand new bath off the Kitchen with barn doors and enclosed shower as well as the Laundry area. Items found on the property have been re-envisioned for features such as coat hooks, lamps and decorative metal screens to expand the aura of yesteryear. Restored original wide board flooring as well as new flooring designed to maintain the original feel. Upstairs you’ll find 2 generous Bedrooms and a newly updated Bath with soaking tub and enclosed shower. The Reading nook was a Bedroom before the wall was removed. The addition of the approximately 500 sf finished 3rd floor offers many options for whatever you can imagine but currently used as an office space. Relax in the recently built Scandinavian sauna after a long day or sit by the firepit with friends. The original 19th century horse barn now used as garage/carport with plenty of storage including the loft space could be finished as studio space and offers wraparound covered decking for outdoor entertaining. New well, septic and dry well. New heat pump water heater. Electrical panel updated and System 2000 heating installed. New above-ground oil tank in basement. Recent vinyl slate roofing. Enjoy nearby Stanfordville Rec Park, Wilcox Memorial Park and the new farmers market in Bangall. Wineries, antiquing, Pine Plains, Rhinebeck, Millbrook and Millerton are all close by. Come make this piece of history your own while it lasts.
