Property descriptionAn elegant sense of place distinguishes this magical retreat in the heart of the Millbrook countryside in New York’s Hudson Valley. The offering of this property for sale presents a rare opportunity to acquire a holding of this size, scope and beauty in such a prime location.At the center of 418 exquisitely private acres is the 4 (5) bedroom main house-recently renovated and thoroughly updated by acclaimed interior designer, Steven Gambrel, who is listed among the ‘Architectural Digest 100’. The colonial style brick and shingle-clad house is nestled on a gentle slope overlooking a 4 acre pond at the end of a winding, treelined carriage drive. A terraced blue stone patio extends from the west facing living room through French doors for outdoor entertaining, while a generous granite stone hearth welcomes one indoors during the winter season. A chef’s kitchen leads to both a formal dining room with bay window as well as to a deck overlooking the pond through an ample breakfast room and family room wing. Upstairs the bedrooms are organized along a center hall with the master suite to one side of the stairs unto itself - the layout well suited for both house guests and an active family.
Every amenity for entertaining and family life has been thought out and provided for. Perched in mature trees surrounding the house are a pair of whimsical treehouses connected by a rope bridge and ladders…. Sited on the crest of a hill above the main house, is the pool pavilion with outdoor fireplaces and uninterrupted views of the Catskill and Berkshire mountains…a tennis court close by. A charming carriage house with a fully outfitted gym, extensive storage and a 3 bay garage is a short stroll from the house and overlooks a lovely organic garden.
Beyond the house and surrounding garden, the compound is comprised of several substantial groups of outbuildings and guest cottages, each one with a separate entrance, self-contained and set amid its own majestic landscape. Riding trails, woodlands, streams and dramatic views abound as you reach these sites via a system of internal roads running throughout the property.
The horse barn complex with 8 stalls and an attached indoor riding arena includes an office and tack room all surrounded by picturesque fenced paddocks, rolling meadows and a chicken coop. On the western edge of the property is a working conifer tree farm with approximately 100 acres planted. It has its own entrance , an attendant sales barn garage and packing facility as well as a log cabin guest house that sleeps 10 with 3 fireplaces and decks overlooking the forested hillsides. There is a second guest cottage with 3 bedrooms and its own entrance on Stanford Road close to the main gate. Lastly, there is a newly constructed maintenance and farm machinery barn including farm office with bathroom and laundry facilities.
