Come Home to Happy Brooks This one of a kind estate built in 1929 and Named Happy Brooks is an Upstate dream come true. The main stone and wood house feels cozy and comfortable but also features dramatic proportions and over 5,000 square feet of living space. A second stone home of approximately 2200 square feet plus a stone cottage with a greenhouse (and an apartment over the garage!) offer plenty of options (9 total bedrooms and 13 bathrooms) for family and friends to share your Shangri-La. The residential structures have the amazing details you would expect from a property built by visionary artists from Woodstock's early 20th Century heyday. Stone fireplaces 15 feet wide, a great room with a ceiling nearly 20 feet high and an incredible glass conservatory in the main house that measures 20 X 14 feet with a 24-foot glass ceiling and an amazing chandelier are just a very few of the unique and original features of this property. Slate and old hardwood floors flow through all the spaces, and around every corner are unique design elements - stained glass, library alcoves and incredible cathedral ceilings. Outside the home is a shady stone courtyard surrounded by lush, established perennial gardens that include a spectacular collection of peonies - many as as old as the house itself. What a perfect place for a morning coffee or evening cocktail and the ideal spot to soak in the beauty and quiet of your 16.7 acres. Intimate mountain views and the flowing brook that borders the property enhance the peace and serenity of this incredibly special place. A pond (with koi fish), a 60,000-gallon oval lined cement pool, 28 X 17 picnic gazebo overlooking an orchard, tree house and 4 stall barn complete your compound. This rare and exceptional offering is only 2 hours from Manhattan. If you have been dreaming about an artsy, boho country refuge, Happy Brooks is it.
