IDYLLIC COUNTRY COMPOUND… $1,625,000
This rural estate includes a sophisticated rustic main house, cozy guest cottage, refined library building (or summer cottage), and huge barn complex converted to a three-bay garage and attached two-level heated/AC area used as studio, office, and recreational space. …The stunning property is located (via a private right-of-way and sturdy bridge) on 17 parklike acres interconnected by mowed paths from level lawns and fields to hillside woodlands to frontage on both sides of the Taghkanic Creek (honored by New York State as a designated inland waterway and trout stream). The Adirondack-style main home has wood floors throughout, and consists of two wings: One wing has a spectacular great room with massive stone fireplace, impressive Pecky cypress vaulted ceilings and walls, open to a long light-filled dining room. The other wing houses the principal bedroom (with attached office, stone fireplace, bath, sunny porch, and patio); a second bedroom and bath; and a den with hidden laundry. Between the two wings are the front entrance, hallway, efficient kitchen, and breakfast bar seating areas that open to the great room and the long back porch stretching from one end of the house to the other. The comfortable guest house, with cupola and weathervane, has a bedroom, bathroom, living room, and kitchen area, while the library building (with inspiring vaulted ceilings, fenced mature garden, and frog pond) provides support for reading, writing, and meditation. Wonderful for full or part-time living, with options to use as a private retreat, only 20 minutes to Hudson or the Berkshires, and under two hours NYC.
