On a quintessential country road, one of the loveliest in the Hudson Valley, Windswept Farm is 45 acres, plus or minus, of rolling pastures stitched together with stone walls, three stocked ponds, an orchard, hayfields, and wooded glades. Long views, sunsets and sunrises, both ancient growth and thoughtfully planted hardwood trees combine the intentional artistry of humans with the magic of nature. Windswept Farm has the patina of a Pre-Revolutionary home with the striking cachet of a destination resort. The home's hand-hewn beams, 200-year-old plank floors, fireplaces, and chandeliers convey rustic elegance and fine living combined with inviting warmth. One of two entrances is a gracious space to welcome guests with a roaring fire, and the rooms beyond beckon. The living spaces are ideal for intimate gatherings or weekend house parties. The main gathering spot is a flowing open floorplan that includes kitchen, family room, and dining room with massive stone fireplaces. The kitchen, a chef's dream, features a large island and double wall ovens. Family and guests can keep the chef company here, or expand the conviviality to the spacious, connecting porch with its own fireplace, grill, and majestic elk-antler chandelier. The library is a gorgeous focal point for the home, and its fireplace, book-lined walls, and broad windows convey comfortable living at its best. The en suite master bedroom with its great wall of windows and large fireplace is a tranquil sanctuary on the second floor. The pool and pool/guest house enhance Windswept Farm's claim as a place of luxury and retreat. For hunting, fishing, cross country skiing, or riding, this pastoral property, a mere 15 minutes from the ultra-hip Rhinebeck, is a secluded but accessible gem. Whether you want to create the perfect horse farm or have a getaway that is one-of-a-kind and beautiful beyond imagining, Windswept Farm has the goods. 24 hour notice required for accompanied showings.
