This idyllic property is the epitome of Hudson Valley charm — a reproduction A.J. Downing Victorian farmhouse, 102 bucolic acres with Catskill Mountain Views, a 3.5-acre, spring-fed lake, a 6-stall barn, pastures with multiple run-in sheds and 175 apple trees which are part of Cedar Heights Orchard.
The two-story bracketed-style villa offers a simple but elegant floor plan that has been modified for contemporary lifestyles. The main level has a center hall that opens to two large parlors with high ceilings, French doors that open to verandas and fireplaces. The center hall extends to the rear where there is a country kitchen that overlooks a gracious, wraparound veranda, the gardens and horse paddocks beyond. In addition, there is a powder room and a mud room.
The second floor has two gracious suites each with its own balcony, an office that connects the suites and French doors to a large terrace to the rear.
The residence is replete with elegant finishes, custom woodwork and wide board flooring. The lower level provides a full basement with storage as well as room for the mechanicals.
The residence is surrounded by professionally landscaped gardens of perennials, ornamental shrubs and specimen trees accented with stone walls.
The circa 1900 horse barn has tack, feed and utility rooms, as well as a bath and storage on the second floor for 750 bales of hay. The property also has direct access to the Landsman Kill Trail system.
The property consists of rolling pasture land that enjoys panoramic mountain views, scenic pond, woods and an orchard. The acreage is in conservation easement and provides for 2 additional building envelopes — one has views of the pond as well as the Catskills, the other has breathtaking views of the Catskills and the Mid Hudson Valley.
Offered at $2,495,000.
