Renovated circa 1750 stone colonial and 35 ft-ceilinged Dutch barn addition in a 52 acre farm setting. Pastoral vistas include stone walled lawns, meadows, rolling hills, winding stream, orchard, vineyard and miles of wooded trails. A sophisticated mix of rustic charm and modern finishes, the stone house retains original details such as wide board wood floors, beamed ceilings, and a stone fireplace, combined seamlessly with a renovated kitchen featuring a Le Cornue double oven range, a Rais soapstone woodstove, and sleek, low-profile Runtal wall panel radiators. On the second floor, structural steel beams raise the roof height for lofty interiors, while retaining the original character of the raw stone. The master bedroom has a soaring stone chimney with woodstove insert, a vaulted ceiling, a mezzanine study / loft, and connecting bath with Finnish cedar sauna. The Dutch timber frame barn was dismantled, reassembled and restored here in 2006, seamlessly marrying 2 buildings of the same era as if they had always gone together. It was updated with a clean, green energy-efficient insulation envelope, state of the art radiant heating and central A/C system, and topped with a standing seam copper roof. The soaring post and beam barn interior has a 35 ft ceilinged great room with spectacular acoustics, and is flanked on both sides by dramatic over-sized French doors opening onto meadow views. It incorporates reclaimed timbers and wood floors that provide stark contrast to the sweeping white walls that can support large artworks. A wrought iron walkway traversing the second floor atrium, antique sliding barn doors, decorative Asian doors, and minimalist modern Italian lighting complete the stunning effect. A strategically placed, sun-tracking solar panel array provide up to 110% of the home’s electrical needs. 2 electric car charging stations. Sourced by its own well with triple-purified water filtration system. Accessory buildings include a post and beam garage with storage loft, 7-stall stable with an independent well and run-in shed, greenhouse, chicken coop, generator shed, tree house, and a rustic cabin in the woods. Formerly owned by the NYS Commissioner of Agriculture, it has rich, arable pasture land for growing one's own food or raising livestock, and an unrestored vineyard with ~50-year old vines and apple orchard ready to be revived. Located on the cul-de-sac of a long, quiet road, minutes from the Hudson River, Kingston, New Paltz, Rhinebeck, and just 20 minutes to Metro North/Amtrak trains in Poughkeepsie, New York.
