Description

Nestled on 13+ acres, this 3 bedrooms 2 full bath, privately situated New England Colonial home in the hamlet of Stanfordville, with beautiful views of the Catskills and long, diverse vistas within the property, welcomes you with a custom-designed stone pillared entrance and its lined driveway of mature trees. A formal entry centered on the front of the house is accentuated with a gable pediment supported by columns that frame an inviting covered porch for the family and to welcome friends. Cedar clapboard and brick band together with the multi-paned sashes and a historic red hue complete the Colonial look. The main floor has a Living Room with a stone fireplace and a beamed ceiling, a paneled Library with a Georgian brick fireplace, a large sun-lit Dining Room with a Colonial 6ft open brick fireplace and bake oven and a large bay window which overlooks the landscape and pool, and a custom-designed large open Kitchen with a double window above an Herbeau country sink framing the rear garden and pool plus matching centered cooking island. Gorgeous custom colored concrete countertop and Plain & Fancy custom cabinetry. There is a large covered porch in the rear of the house with a lovely stone patio. An enclosed garden planned by the current Owner around a provençal fountain sits to one side of the parking area. New England style four-car garage with large side porch doubles as a Spring-to-Fall athletic training center and garden shed. Exceptionally maintained by the current Owner of twenty years. A true hidden treasure conveniently located between the antique shops of Millbrook and refined restaurants in Amenia and Pines Plains.
