Once in a lifetime you find a property that takes your breath away. Quintessential country. A long private driveway takes you to your compound where you will find an old farmhouse overlooking two large ponds. One for floating around in the canoe on those lazy summer days and one with a dock for swimming, fishing or just laying in the hammock listening to the sounds of nature. A three bedroom farmhouse overlooks the water and is surrounded by stone patios, mature perennials and flowering trees. There are two historic barns on the property in very good condition with stables and tack room, a workshop and even a caretakers cottage. Open meadows, mountain views,stone walls,remnants of an old garden, it is all here. As you head up to the top of the hill you will marvel at the lovingly planned and executed gardens designed with an eye to informal elegance around a stately yet gracious, shingle style home. The home's interior features are most impressive, vaulted ceiling, 10 foot ceilings on the first floor, custom travertine stone-floored foyer leading to generous sized sun drenched rooms on the main level creating a beautiful flow. Great room with massive (Count Rumsford) wood-burning fireplace, gourmet eat-in cook's kitchen with top of the line appliances, custom cabinetry and beautifully executed stone and Italian tile work. The grand dining room has a stunning coffered ceiling and offers views through french doors to the patio and pool area. You will love the beautiful family room with built ins & stone fireplace. The master bedroom suite has a spectacular bathroom with an oversized steam shower and a soaking tub, a sitting room and private deck overlooking Mohonk. Three additional upper level bedrooms are beautifully laid out with magnificent baths. The exterior features include spectacular rolling tree lined meadows, stone walls, massive stone patios, walkways, a stone hot tub, and pergola centered around a saline infinity pool with waterfall & slide. Total privacy and seclusion and as close to paradise as I have ever seen.
