The magic of Dunromin' Farm in the Shekomeko Valley of Dutchess County lies somewhere between the enchantment of a storybook kingdom and the irresistible beauty of a working horse farm. 286 pristine acres contain everything such an elegant estate could require or need, from the convenient helipad to the gracious guest house with treatment room and sauna, a walled garden for entertaining, and an abundance of homes for full-time employees, including a caretaker's house and six garage apartments, one attached to the main house. Fourteen paddocks for turned out horses, an eight stall isolation barn, and the estate's showpiece - a sophisticated horse barn with two wings, 46 stalls, conference room, offices, and show ring - exemplify the height of top drawer professionalism in horse breeding and care. The main house, a glittering stronghold of brick and slate, commands a perfect view of the property and the mountains beyond. Every convenience and comfort characterize this exquisite home. Not a detail is missed, from the copper gutters to the fieldstone used in the fireplaces. Flawlessly appointed chef's kitchen, beautiful library, covered porch, living room opening onto bluestone terrace, marble-countered bar and butler's pantry all exemplify understated luxury and comfort. The home's stunning centerpiece is a sun drenched conservatory/dining room. The handsome master suite contains every convenience, including his and her dressing rooms and baths. A state-of-the-art lower level houses a climate controlled wine cellar and dog grooming room. The horse farm at Dunromin' features everything it needs to help maintain itself, including a maintenance shop for all farm equipment, equipment barns, a surgery for an on-site veterinarian, full generator power for the entire property, and enough tack rooms, wash stalls, and other barn amenities to make horse care convenient.
