History refreshed: Following a 2-year overhaul by some of the region’s best contractors and designers, the iconic Wilson Gray Homestead is ready for a stylish new chapter in its already storied life. The farmhouse, built in the early 1800s but dismantled and moved in 1915 from its original site at what became the Ashokan Reservoir serving New York City, is one of the few Ashokan-displaced houses still standing in the Hudson Valley. And now it’s one of its most stunning, too. The iconic house, known for its signature wrap-around stacked verandas, has been fully renovated in a style that respects both its architectural heritage and modern sensibilities, featuring a thoughtful and consistent balance of openness and privacy throughout 3 levels of space. The ground floor features subtly separated dining and living spaces, both open to a stunning new gourmet kitchen with wonderful views from 3 sides, and featuring all-new custom cabinetry and high-end appliances including a Wolf range and paneled Sub-Zero refrigerator. The kitchen, flanked by a half bathroom and laundry area, opens to a wide covered deck taking full advantage of the private backyard and woods beyond. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, including a primary suite with doors out to the second-story wrap-around porch, newly restored but with original carved fretwork. The bathrooms are stylish but far from cookie-cutter, with freestanding tubs, glass-enclosed showers and tile wainscoting. The charming and fully-permitted third floor includes a wide-open den or work space, an additional bedroom, another full bath and a remarkably sunny office or workout space with full views of surrounding mountain ranges. The list of upgrades throughout is extensive, including high-efficiency zoned HVAC systems (all electric), architect-grade replacement windows, a generator hook-up, buried electric service from the road, fire-suppression sprinklers, artfully preserved hardwood floors, and a standing-seam metal roof with historically accurate ice guards on both the house and a separate 2-car garage, also fully renovated. The restoration, already bestowed awards by local preservation groups, honors the past while providing a move-in-ready opportunity to enjoy the most modern, state-of-the-art conveniences, including proximity to popular farmers markets, wineries, and other culinary attractions, including Inness, that continue to make Kerhonkson one of the hottest destinations in the Hudson Valley.
