A true country sanctuary…what was once the barn complex of the Dippel Dairy Farm is now a flawless 8-acre hideaway from the noise of the world, where the stylish interior and lushly landscaped outdoor spaces vie with each other in their utopian perfection. Conceived with a designer’s eye, and cultivated for its potential, as well as the needs of busy city professionals, specialized craft persons executed the barn-to-sanctuary conversion with maximum attention to detail; systems and infrastructure meet the same standard. The great room is the heart of the home, with original wide-board floors, multiple sitting areas, dining space, wood-burning fireplace, 20-foot ceilings and original beams exposed throughout. Light pours into the spacious country kitchen through a wall of glass and skylights overhead. Beyond its evident beauty, this is a space that cooks will love working in, with butcher-block countertops, a Wolf 6-burner professional range, and plenty of space for dining and gathering. The lofted master bedroom is a haven unto itself and enjoys its own sitting area and bathroom with soaking tub. The barn’s lower level includes a pantry/wine room and the most enchanting bedroom with direct outside access to a lushly planted stone patio. The former milk house, a short distance from the house, is curated as an additional sleeping space and is heated for year-round use. The two-story dairy barn includes a workspace with abundant adaptable space on the lower level, while the upper level is an open span with yet more versatile space. The magic continues outdoors, an assemblage of intimate vignettes, mature landscape and indescribable sensuality, with beautiful chimes placed on the wooded paths and choice areas throughout. This is a property to wander through and discover – be it the proper greenhouse with heat, water and potting station for winterizing the property’s container gardening; new hot tub and outdoor shower with pergola-shaded sitting area; or the sheer wonder of the gunite pool, set in its own hidden corner of the property with spaces for lounging and dining and graced by a magical koi pond and gently cascading waterfall. When the urge hits to venture away from this haven, attractions abound. Minnewaska State Park and the Mohonk Preserve are close-by, as are the towns of New Paltz, Rosendale, High Falls, Stone Ridge, vibrant Kingston as well as countless farms, breweries, galleries, restaurants and shops. Transportation from the city is a breeze, with the Thruway only 3 miles away and the Trailways bus station even closer.
