If, as they're saying, the Hudson Valley is the new Hamptons, then this is the property that exemplifies the transition. The house is a classic shingle-style rambler with a modern floor plan that suits today's style of living and entertaining, and the soaring ceilings offer an expansiveness that mirrors the vastness of this special property. Sweeping meadow and woodland views from extensive elevated decking are framed by a series of groomed trails which lead to the rushing stream, rail trail, pond, 50-foot saline gunite lap pool and intimate areas that have been carved out for reflection and the appreciation of nature. The private master suite wing encompasses a bedroom with wood-burning fireplace, beamed ceilings, luxe bathroom with spa tub and separate shower, a gigantic closet and French doors that open to the deck. Two more bedrooms with full bath, formal dining room, library and great room with wood burning stove join the open kitchen on this level. The striking mahogany staircase leads to the magical studio level with private workspace that opens to its own deck, sitting area, half-bath and tremendous walk-in attic, which can be converted to additional living space. The great surprise is the home's lower level, which sits above grade and opens to the fenced area of the property & an ideal area for dogs and children to play safely. The double-sided fireplace faces the recreation room on one side and yoga room on the other. Comfortable media room sits alongside an art studio and additional bedroom and bathroom, infra-red sauna room, and even more finished space for workshop, crafting, gym, or additional office. If you're in search of a home and property with generous proportions, carefully considered amenities, top-notch systems and proximity to a vast array of recreational, culinary and cultural activities, this could be it.
