The warmth of history and the rural beauty of Dutchess County combine at Hickory Hill, set on 65 acres, amidst green lawns and lush flower beds, with distant views and a fully restored multi-use barn. Originally built in 1790, the house has undergone a custom renovation. If the kitchen is the heart of a country home, Hickory Hill’s kitchen is no exception. A custom wood-fired brick oven promises warm winter nights and heavenly meals. Custom cabinetry, expansive soapstone counters, large center island, as well as a professional BlueStar stove/oven and Gaggenau wall oven make it an ideal chef’s kitchen. The gracious family room has a cozy fireplace and three outdoor exposures. The formal dining room and a well-proportioned living room, with fireplace and views north and south, are spacious, elegant, and comfortable. The first-floor master suite includes a fireplace and dressing rooms, and overlooks the garden. Upstairs, four bedrooms, two baths, and a north-facing office make the house perfect for family and guests. Outside, a brick terrace features a large millstone centerpiece and surrounding fall and spring perennial gardens. The swimming pool with bluestone surround and an illuminated tennis court provide recreation and relaxation. The large, fully-restored, five-part barn, once part of a working dairy farm, includes space for garaging antique cars, a large workshop, a spacious mudroom excellent for the storage of sporting equipment. Upstairs includes a guest room/office, full bath, additional space for events, and plenty of dry storage. The entire barn is up to code and fire safe. The property is available with an additional 20 acres and a second barn. The additional acreage provides a second point of road access to the property. The north barn is currently leased by Wild Hive Farm, the noted grain mill. Taxes reflect Agricultural Exemption.
