Bees Lane Homestead is an 1850s 4 bedroom, 5 bath, 2,500 s.f. home on 4 acres on a quiet country road restored to perfection with attention to every detail. The owners have brought a sense of style and comfort to every corner of the house without sacrificing the romance of an authentic 19th century farmhouse. Elements that stand out are the elegant polished wide plank original wood floors, completely restored 6 over 6 windows with dark gray contrast trim, the very seamless flow of common living areas, and the privacy afforded for personal spaces. The dining room’s wood ceiling polished a dark stain, the walls painted a soft gray, a classic chandelier, and antique brass candle sconces make the room feel intimate even when hosting a dinner for 12. The kitchen is cleverly connected to the dining room to have an open feel but designed also to give a level of privacy when needed. The entire home is bathed in natural light during all parts of the day. An independent and large master suite in the front section of the 2nd floor, accessed by a separate staircase, complete with a reading nook and a day bed, is a go-to sanctuary when needed. Another staircase in the back takes you up to 2 nice sized bedrooms, a library and a full bath. There is an additional master suite on the first floor with a private entrance, perfect for visiting parents or other guests. The lower level is one grand family room with a fireplace, ideal for game nights or animated conversations over cocktails. The landscaping is as inviting as the living space inside. With carefully curated plantings the gardens are in perpetual bloom from spring into late autumn. On one end of the property is an inspiring barn in excellent condition ready to be repurposed into a yoga studio. A recently rebuilt stacked stone wall and bluestone veranda in the front and patio in the back allow for lots of room to bask in the sun during the day or enjoy a sundowner on a cool summer night. Bees Lane location is ideal. It’s less than two hours from NYC, 5 minutes from Rhinebeck and 30 minutes from Hudson. For those commuting, Amtrak is 10 minutes away and 15 minutes to Metro North in Poughkeepsie.
