Stissing Rising, in the heart of Pine Plains’ Shekomeko Valley, sits high above a panoramic vista of neighboring farms and undulating landscapes.  Integrated mixed-mediums throughout exude a calming balance of modern sophistication with the home’s classic timber-framing and stonework.

This 5-Bedroom, 4.5 Bath family retreat with additional Guest Home offers meticulous attention to detail throughout.  Floor-to-ceiling windows frame breathtaking sunsets from the Great Room with a dramatic stone Fireplace.  An inviting Kitchen with Wet Bar and Dining Room open to the spacious Deck with separate dining and entertaining areas.  The Main Floor Master Suite includes a private Sunroom, Spa Bath and also opens to the Deck overlooking distant mountain views.  There are light-filled gathering spaces on each of the three floors; a main floor Great Room, a Lower Level Family Room, and an Upper Loft joining the two Ensuite Bedrooms.

The walk-out Lower Level offers an additional Kitchen, Family Room with Fireplace and doors to private patio, Bedroom, Office/Bedroom, Billiards, and Sauna – creating space and privacy for all. A 1-Bedroom Suite over the Garage provides abundant guest space at this country compound.

A saline, heated Pool with bluestone Patio sits central to the multiple Guest spaces – bringing everyone together to enjoy western views over the Stissing Range and Catskill Mountains; immersing you in nature and the serenity of the big sky. Experience the magic of all four seasons from your own oasis in the heart of the Hudson Valley.

This home is centrally located within Northern Dutchess County; close to the towns of Pine Plains, Millbrook, Millerton, and Rhinebeck, minutes from the Wassaic Metro-North train station, accessible to Catamount Ski Mountain.
