Life's finer moments can have no more appropriate setting than this 99+ acre country estate known as Willow Lake Farms. As you enter through the stone pillars of this unique property you'll be captivated by the 5000 sq ft stone home with a slate roof that overlooks a picturesque 5 acre stocked lake with docks. This home was developed by Henry Dubois Van Wyck, the first mayor of Fishkill and at that time was called Knickerbocker Lodge. The property also features a stone, two-family gatehouse that sleeps 12, a lakeside, 2 family cabin that sleeps 8, a 2 bedroom cottage with a 3-season room and veranda that sleeps 6, and a stand-alone conservatory overlooking the valley ideal for artist space, meditation or just relaxation and tranquility. Other buildings include a barn/hen house, 3-car garage and an oversized, handcrafted, log built gazebo w/built in seating. The main house has 5 b/r's, 3 full baths, 2 half baths, L/R with exposed beams, fireplace, built-in, American Chestnut bookcases, window seats and beautifully arched windows with handblown, rose and green glass, dining room w/fireplace and kitchen with butler's pantry. The second floor features the primary, ensuite bedroom offering a library with fireplace and dressing room, 2 additional bedrooms(one with a fireplace) and full bath. There is also a staff wing on this floor which offers 2 additional bedrooms and a full bath. The lower level of the home is comprised of a rec/family room, office, laundry room, two powder rooms and a changing room with access to a stone patio and the lake. If you love nature's beauty you'll be delighted by the ever-changing mountain views from the multiple bluestone patios that feature a wet bar and a cascading waterfall into a koi pond. You can further your appreciation of this park-like compound on the abundant walking paths and mature gardens with plentiful fruit bearing trees. Enjoy serenity and calm while being just an hour from NYC and 20 minutes from Metro-North and all major roads.
