A forty acre ultra-private culinary farmstead lying at the foothills of the Catskill range with striking mountain views, open meadows and beautiful deep pine forest. A long driveway lined with stone walls leads into the property and the circa 1850 home.
The traditional farmhouse was expanded in 2020 with a modern addition of stacked stone quarried on the property and a floor-to-ceiling glass wall showcasing views of wildflower fields and shimmering rock outcroppings. The interior expertly mixes modern and antique elements, featuring 16′ vaulted ceilings in the kitchen, along with salvaged hand-hewn beams. The kitchen has a Lacanche range and custom inset cabinetry with solid brass hardware, countertops are Italian statuary marble and the appliances are top of the line including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, two dishwashers, and an undercounter ice machine and wine refrigerator. The custom built-in wood burning pizza oven and expansive screened in porch is great place to relax. A bar has been built into the den alongside the wood burning stove, and the adjacent light filled living room has a tastefully minimal fireplace and exposed wood beams. The two story farmhouse features two bedrooms, two baths and an additional sleeping loft.
The antique barn with uniquely curved windows has been converted into a studio/guesthouse with a full bath. It is clad in Shou Sui Ban Cypress sourced from Japan.
Down into the western meadow is a large fire pit and summer kitchen inspired by Francis Mallman’s Patagonian home and Argentinian style outdoor cooking. The structure has a designated well and hot water, a refrigerator and propane stove. It is wired for internet and stands on a bluestone patio with an outdoor shower on the far exterior wall.
The garden, with its patina’d antique cast iron gates and irrigation system, has been used for organic vegetable and flower farming. The greenhouse is supplied with heat and internet and offers a spectacular setting for outdoor dinner.
