A jewel in the heart of Millbrook’s Hunt Country, Highgrove Cottage is beautifully sited on six spectacular acres offering ultimate privacy in the coveted Smithfield Valley. The house has spectacular views in all directions and is surrounded by large estates and farms protected by the Dutchess Land Conservancy. The elegant main house has been meticulously updated by the current owner with luxurious details throughout. The interiors have hardwood floors and an abundance of large, divided glass windows and French doors that bring in fantastic natural light. There are magnificent views from every room. The sun-drenched main floor includes a lovely dining room and great room with coffered ceiling and wood burning fireplace. The first floor comprises the primary suite which has a stunning thirteen-foot ceiling and an ensuite sitting room/office that opens onto the gardens. The opulent first floor full bathroom has a mother of pearl sink basin, and antique leaded glass shower door. The mud room completes the first floor. The second floor offers a second primary suite boasting a nine-foot barrel vault ceiling, three full closets, a walk-in wardrobe and full spa bathroom. The third bedroom overlooks the mature gardens and specimen trees. This would make an excellent horse property. The two-story barn is perfect for horse stalls and tack room, while a level field would be ideal for paddocks and an outdoor riding ring. The property is contiguous to the Millbrook Hunt Trails where one can hack or walk out. The mature perennial gardens, equipped with underground sprinklers, have been lovingly cared for over the years and are on the Garden Conservancy Tour each year. Smithfield Valley is one of the most desirable areas in Dutchess County. The area is known for its scenic beauty, farm to table restaurants, wineries, and hiking. Close to farmers markets, Mashomack Polo Club and Tamarack Preserve. Minutes to Metro North and Connecticut. Low taxes $8,481 with STAR exemption.
