En Route is a chic Hudson Valley gem that combines impeccable design with comfort and livability. Original details blend seamlessly with updates both stylistic and functional for living, working, and entertaining today. Entering the three queen-sized bedroom house via its red lacquered doors, one encounters the perfect balance of tradition and functionality with a chef's kitchen, family room, and living room with two wood-burning fireplaces. The stylish lacquered library with a golden ceiling features custom bookshelves opening to a hidden home office, complete with two monitors and a folding desk for a discreet work from home setup. The dining/sun room offers dining for up to twelve, overlooking the property. The two-car garage offers options for an upstairs apartment, or dual use as garage/gym. The updated barn, which has been used for horses and livestock in the past, offers additional storage, gym, or free space. The stunning Jimmy Crisp designed pool house looks upon an oversized gunite pool, and includes kitchen, living space, and lodging for up to four. The pool house patio features a wood-fired pizza oven, built-in propane grill, and gracious entertaining space. Its temperature-stable unfinished basement currently serves as a wine-cellar, but could be used for gym, storage, or connected to the pool house and finished. With newly added generator, HVAC, boiler, pool heater, and other updates, this is a turnkey treasure in the heart of Dutchess County, just minutes from Metro North and the Village of Millbrook. 24-48 notice required for accompanied showings.
