Nestled in 2 bucolic acres, this beautifully furnished, two-story home features 3 BR + 2 home offices. A pond graced by a resident Peking duck greets you as you enter the lane. Across the way, sheep graze in paddocks. The area offers award-winning architectural homes and gardens, as well as protected green space and trails. Conveniently located, it's 12 min to shopping, 1 hr to NYC, and 7 min to Metro North.
A stream meanders along two sides of this home, surrounded by a fern and moss woodland garden. Perfect for those who want to be serenaded by nature's soothing sounds—including peepers, owls, and bull frogs! Enjoy the large deck (800 sq ft) with gas grill, myriad seating areas, and alluring daybed draped with mosquito netting. The deck overlooks a small pond. Relax in the hammock beside a babbling brook. Walk to the Hudson River and numerous trails, including the Appalachian Trail.
The upper level features extensive views of the garden plus an open floor plan, renovated bathrooms and kitchen (with cork floor), library/reading room, an in-house stereo speaker system, and terrific art collection. LR features a beamed cathedral ceiling and big wood stove. Both DR and master BR open onto the deck. The first floor includes a bedroom with half-bath, LR/rec area, laundry room, and a home office (or writer's studio or family room) with a separate entrance. House has wireless internet, cable TV, AC, etc. Comes with two kayaks. Freshly painted. New large windows with new cellular shades on all windows. Mint condition.
Idyllically set in nature, a horse farm down the road offers riding lessons to children, and a CSA farm provides fresh organic produce in the summer. Plus, it's 12 min to shopping, 7 min to Metro North, 1 hr to NYC. I'm interested in long term (6 months or longer) rental. Dates flexible. Caretaker apt not included.+ More
