Privately set back from the road with Hudson River and Catskill Mountain views, this 86-acre estate is magical. It is accessed by a long driveway through an apple orchard and past horse pastures, a pond and gardens. Located 2 hours by car or train from NYC, this country retreat makes a perfect family compound for a weekend or summer escape from the city or for year-round living. It is centered by a completely renovated and expanded 6-bedroom Victorian with a modern flair including beautifully-proportioned rooms with tall ceilings, wood floors, arched doorways and 3 working fireplaces. The renovations include all new electrical, plumbing, structural upgrades, internet wiring, backup generator, slate roofing and an energy efficient building envelope. Solar panels combined with geothermal heating/cooling provide a “green” and sustainable energy footprint, with utility costs averaging a remarkably low $200 per month. A central great room features a chef's kitchen with Wolf and Subzero appliances, quartz counters, breakfast area, island, oversized fireplace, and a soaring coffered ceiling. A wall of glass provides spectacular views of the river and mountains. An entertainment wing features an indoor geothermal heated pool in its own energy efficient enclosure for year-round use, including an ultraviolet sanitation system to eliminate chlorine smell. The original early 1900’s six-sided stone “icehouse” has been converted into a unique fully-equipped bar and wine room. There is a projection home theater and a game room with a pool table. Outside, a two-level slate terrace with pergola, summer kitchen and firepit overlooks sweeping lawn and gardens. A naturalist's paradise, there are over 2 miles of woodland trails for hiking, biking, birdwatching, ATV, X-country skiing or relaxing country walks. For swimming, fishing, canoeing or quiet picnics along the stream bank, the estate features over half a mile of private direct frontage on the Roe-Jan Kill. Finishing this magical setting is an attached three-car garage, a separate heated workshop/artist or music studio, two classic red barns, a three-stall horse barn and a chicken coop for fresh eggs. Several large fenced vegetable and flower gardens complete with automated irrigation systems allow you to grow your own organic vegetables. A guest/caretaker 3-bedroom house is available on a separate adjacent parcel.
