This circa 1825 stylishly renovated Rhinebeck Greek Revival schoolhouse has been meticulously maintained and expanded while retaining its original charm. Initially designated the Eighmyville District 9 Schoolhouse, 'The Belfry,' became the home of a Roosevelt cousin in the 1950's. Entry is through the original foyer with the children's coat closets now converted for storage and recessed laundry facilities. The schoolroom is now an airy, welcoming living room with 9.5 ft. ceilings and field stone fireplace. Interior windows have been added to give a view that spans the length of the home and the gardens to the rear. On each side of the great room are two en suite bedrooms. The master offers a dressing room and elegant, tiled bath with glassed-in shower and tub. Past the fireplace is a chef's kitchen with custom-built white cabinetry, granite countertops, farm sink, island and high-end appliances including a Subzero faced to match the cabinetry. The kitchen is open to an intimate dining room for entertaining. To the rear of the home is a new, spacious great room that features a vaulted ceiling, slate-like tile flooring with radiant heat, custom built-ins and French doors that lead to a secluded terrace overlooking the gardens and property to the rear. A new, one-car garage is connected by a breezeway with a porch that provides an ideal spot to rest and relax while overlooking the gardens. The residence is surrounded by perennial beds, ornamental shrubs, mature hardwoods and natural rock formations with a private rear lawn. The property is less than five minutes to the Village's dining, shopping and theater. It is also convenient to Amtrak and Bard.
