The "White House" was a gardener's cottage on the former Flagler estate in 1926. It sits between their old apple orchard and a creek at the foot of a hill with long views across Dutchess County to the Catskills. The Estate thought well of the gardener; it gave his house a welcoming porch, a generous fireplace, four bedrooms, and a breezeway big enough for grilling and dining with views to the morning sun on one side and to sunset over the orchard on the other. For creative activities or simply a quiet retreat, there is a heated studio with ensuite bath. The house is a five-minute ride from coffee and antiques in Millbrook village but tucked out of sight on 97 acres of walkable countryside. Enjoy mountain views and sunset picnics at the hilltop pergola overlooking the secret garden. Being on a creek and near a wetland the daily birdsong only pauses at noon. Furnishings have been updated with mid-century modern, but otherwise time stands still here, for endless summers and snug winter hideaways at the fireside.
