This completely renovated contemporary farmhouse is on one of the best sites in the county, with breathtaking and protected views overlooking the Shekomeko Valley. Located off a private country road and surrounded by conservation land, this home is the perfect quiet country retreat. Enter through the foyer/library to the airy and light-filled common spaces on the first floor that revolves around a two-sided floating fireplace and open to a bank of floor-to-ceiling windows with pastoral views. A bluestone patio runs the length of the house. The kitchen is well-appointed with state-of-the-art appliances, soapstone countertops, a Plain English cabinet system, and a walk-in pantry. The main level comprises a media room, a main floor primary bedroom with an en-suite bath, and an oversized mudroom. The second floor boasts an additional primary bedroom with an en-suite bath, three additional bedrooms, and a 1200-square-foot porch. The heated gunite pool is expertly integrated into the landscape, and the Shekomeko creek runs through the property. This private oasis is minutes away from the heart of Millerton, NY, and Wassaic Train Station and is close to Salisbury and Sharon, CT, as well as the region’s best prep schools.
