You will be amazed by this magnificent compound of homes consisting of a total of 7,000 sq. ft. including 7 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms on 122 lush private and peaceful acres (105 held in conservancy) sited at the end of a country road in the heart of the Hudson Valley. It took over 5 years to meticulously construct the Post and Beam one-of-a-kind custom Country home. No detail was overlooked, no expense spared and every inch has been carefully thought out to structural perfection. Note: There is not one inch of sheet rock in the entire structure! Highlights include massive gourmet Chef's kitchen with every amenity including quartz counter tops, vaulted ceilings, en-suite bedrooms, maid and au pair quarters with separate entrance, contractor's/gardeners bath with outside entrance only, glorious dining room for elegant entertaining, wine cellar, and a 600 sq. ft. outdoor deck overlooking expansive grounds and fruit trees. In addition, there is a very comfortable 4 bedroom, 2 bath ca. 1815 cedar-sided guest house with cozy wood stove in the kitchen and a charming brick fireplace in the living room. Your guests will love having their own private hideaway.
As you walk the grounds you will also discover a spectacular wood-working shop with wood stove and room for all of your creations, and as you walk to the top of the hill looking down on the compound, you will find what was once an amazing observatory for watching the heavens, which is now a sweet studio for any artist's dream. As you continue walking, you are steps away from a 105 acre nature conservancy that is magnificent.
