Delight in your private preserve on 50 acres of pastures and woods. Here's your opportunity to own a potential gentlemen's farm with multiple sites for animals and crops. Your dreams of country living will finally realize. Relax in the gazebo perched on a large spring fed pond/small lake stocked with Diploid Carp. A smaller pond and stream on the property are close by. Enjoy extensive hiking, over the meadow and through the woods on cleared trails to over 900 acres adjoining surrounding state and conservation lands as well as the Shaupeneak Ridge Park. The charming, open floor plan farmhouse is filled with light through walls of windows and glass doors in almost every living space. The dual sided original brick fireplace is a focal point of both the generous kitchen and the extended living space opening on to extensive decking. The house has wonderful flow and is thoughtfully designed with a first-floor office/den suite opening to the outdoors. Indoor living seamlessly merges with the outdoors through French doors leading to a 240 sq ft. screened porch, with cathedral ceiling, opening onto extensive decking and patio spaces. Amenities include a standby Generac Generator, almost 600 sq.ft of porches plus a large fenced in play area and indoor room, temperature controlled with mini splits, for your furbabies. Take the original Arts and Crafts staircase upstairs and you will find four bedrooms, more outdoor living, roof decks, balconies and a large marble tiled steam room. And for the car enthusiasts there is a two-car attached garage in addition to the 864 sq.ft three car detached garage/barn. The finished second floor with vaulted ceilings is currently being used as a jewelry maker's studio, but offers endless other opportunities for studio, workshop, gym and office spaces. Outdoor pursuits are many-nearby adventures await, including Esopus Meadows Preserve, The John Burroughs Nature Sanctuary, Black Creek Preserve, Minnewaska State Park, and Mohonk Preserve. Endless kayaking, hiking, and biking are easily accessed. And with only 10 minutes to nearby Rosendale, 15 minutes to downtown New Paltz, 20 minutes to downtown Kingston, and 35 minutes to Woodstock, you'll be feasting on local produce and proteins from the county's finest grocery stores and gourmet restaurants. Less than 2 hours by car or 90 minutes by Express Bus (just 17 minutes away) -from New York City. Come see what's waiting for you. This is a nature lover’s paradise.
