Built 1942
Nestled at the end of a long gravel drive flanked by a bubbling brook with stone walls, La Petite Maison is a spacious and light filled Georgian mansion hand-built by Italian stone masons in the 1940s. Surrounded by an open lawn, mature trees and perennial shrubs and flowers, this elegant 4-acre property is beautiful inside and out. Solidly built with gracious proportions, this unique home is a rare offering for vintage homes in the region. The gracious entryway through mahogany French doors opens to a living room flanked by 2 walls of windows filling it with southwestern light. High ceilings, original plaster walls and a brick center fireplace add to the poetic nuance with French doors opening to a wraparound bluestone terrace covered by a pergola. Original wide plank pine floors extend into the library with a mirrored fireplace in the same chimney so both rooms can be aglow with warmth and firelight in the winter. The formal dining room has entrances both from the library and kitchen for seamless entertaining. The modern eat-in kitchen also has French doors opening to the back garden which encourages Al Fresco dining ensconced by old growth trees and the peaceful sound of running water. A wide set of stairs leads up to the second level which hosts 5 bedrooms and 3 baths which include a primary suite with French doors opening to a porch above the breezeway which connects the house to a 2-car garage. Behind the house and traversing the stream is a small stone building constructed as a barrel-vaulted root cellar which is large enough to utilize as an art studio, gym or writer's cottage. Set on one of Dutchess County's most beautiful roads, this home is surrounded by neighboring acres of protected fields and farmland. Minutes from Millbrook Village, Dutchess Day School and The Golf and Tennis Club, this property is less than 2 hours from NYC and would make the perfect refuge for full-time or weekend living.
