Heritage charm meets modern magnificence on this secluded, 83-acre estate. Set at the end of a half-mile private drive flanked by waterfalls is a meticulously preserved 1826 farmhouse, located at the heart of this bucolic property of open fields, perenial gardens, stone walls, gently rolling hills, woodland, and a half-mile frontage on the Esopus River with a prime swimming area. The park-like surroundings of the home include various specimen of oak, maple, weeping beech, copper beech, birch, plane, and American chestnut trees'”mature trees that promise the changing beauty of the seasons, from spring green through autumn's blaze. Follow on foot the gentle sweep of wooded trails from the drive and house to the lower meadows, which gently give way to the water. The home is a marvel of preservation intertwined with modern detail. Reimagined by noted architect Scott Dutton and restoration expert Alan Laycock, the renovation embraced every detail to retain original architectural elements adapted to today's lifestyle preferences. Enter via the spacious bluestone patio to find a modern, open-plan first floor with a striking eat-in kitchen and large stone fireplace. All original woodwork and two-foot-thick stone walls have been preserved, enhanced with hand-hewn beamed ceilings, bluestone flooring with radiant heat in the kitchen, custom-crafted mahogany cabinets, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances and a dramatic maple wood center island. On the floor above, find a large living room with original woodwork, board floors, high-beamed ceilings, and another stone fireplace, flanked by an 11x12' space currently used as an office. The home's top floor is dedicated to the charming master suite and luxurious bath with stone floors, tub, and shower, all tucked beneath the eaves of the slate roof. Period preservation with modern functionality continues throughout the rest of the property, including the cedar-sided barn with standing seam leaded copper roof, heated two-car garage on the lower level, and a perfectly modern guest suite with full bath on the upper level. Even the windows are period accurate, built by Architectural Components. The property includes an additional well and generator pad with gas lines by the garage.
