    Secluded Upstate Retreat

    The romance of an English country house with the complete privacy and seclusion of a 205 acre compound, this perfectly hidden estate offers a respite from the outside world. Enter down a private half mile approach under a canopy of maples and lindens that open to reveal an oasis of rolling hills.

    At the center, the 1850 gable and wing center hall colonial evokes the World of Interiors with wide board floors and original details. A country kitchen, equipped with Wolf range, Subzero refrigerator, double Asko diswashers and Shaws farmhouse sinks, connect to the deck overlooking the grounds, ideally suited for entertaining. The living room and parlor are designed for intimate gatherings with friends. Also on the ground floor: An office with a private entrance to the heated conservatory, a mud room, pantry, a petit guest bedroom and a powder room. Upstairs are two more guest bedrooms and the sun flooded primary bedroom with ensuite bath.

    A late nineteenth century barn has been completely rebuilt into an open plan guest house with 22’ a cathedral ceiling and loft bedroom. The climate controlled basement is perfect for archival storage and also contains a 100 ft2 cedar lined walk in closet.

    Dotted around the grounds are: a 40’x16’ gunite pool, a writer’s cabin in the woods with heat & AC, and a caretaker's cottage or 2nd guest house, and acres of fields with sweeping panoramic views of the Hudson Valley clear to the Berkshires, perfectly suited for a new building site.

    30 min to Hudson or skiing at Windham, 40 min from Albany Int’l Airport, two hours from Manhattan.
