Surrounded by nature, including large stepping ponds, a natural waterfall, and ancient hardwood trees, this property embodies romanticism and pastoral beauty. Gracious proportions and beautiful wood floors give this early example of a wide center hall Colonial its country elegance. In the living room are built-in bookcases, a fireplace, and four French doors, two of which open onto a wide screened-in porch. The dining room opens to a stone terrace with covered porch. The east-facing solarium in the kitchen can house a thriving collection of plants as well as a table for family breakfast or long afternoons over a jigsaw puzzle. Completing the first floor are a boot room, laundry room, and bedroom that could also serve as an office. Upstairs, 3 more bedrooms include the large principal bedroom with large bath and sunbathing balcony. The two additional bedrooms share a bath and there is ample storage. The top floor playroom shares a bath with a fifth bedroom. The property boasts a large greenhouse, currently out of use, perennial plantings, pool with rustic pool house, and a post-and-beam barn that is used as a garage, with an upstairs space perfect as a yoga studio or office. Despite feeling hidden away from the world in the most private spot imaginable, this property is mere minutes from the village of Millbrook, and in close reach of hiking, skiing, and hunting. 24-48 hours required for accompanied showings.
