Built in 1703, Rockwood is one of the oldest houses in Dutchess County. This fully modernized home, with a large sun-drenched kitchen wing addition, retains 100% of its colonial charm while epitomizing comfort and livability. Spacious rooms, fireplaces, cozy nooks, and glorious outdoor spaces make Rockwood perfect both for large scale entertaining and intimate family dinners. Three-hundred-year-old wide-plank floorboards glow with history and warmth. The entryway is spacious enough to double as a sitting room. The billiard room off the central hall features an original fireplace and cushioned window seat. A large fireplace is at the center of the wood beamed library, which once served as the original kitchen and is now a perfect spot for late night reading. The heart of the home is a sprawling and stunning kitchen/great room. The kitchen is a chef’s dream, with professional grade Viking range, deep country sink, marble countertops, and walk-in pantry. Just beyond a spacious area for a large dining table is a sitting area with fieldstone fireplace. A long bar, with ice maker and wine cooler, completes this social hub. The entire room is lined with windows and French doors open to various outdoor spaces—a screened porch with blue stone floor, a pond, a 50' long heated lap pool, and access to the wooded Wappingers Creek frontage that makes this property so magical. A guest room, full bath, walk-in coat room, laundry room, and mud room complete with a doggie bath are also on the first level. Upstairs, four more bedrooms circle a central sitting area—the gracious, skylit master suite, two bedrooms with Jack and Jill bathroom, and another en suite guest room. Original tongue-in-groove doors and dormer windows add to the history that infuses these rooms. The property includes a barn with workshop, three-car garage, and loft overlooking a bend in the creek that could be converted to living space. Five acres of walking trails to wander through, right on Wappingers Creek, make this property a fairy-tale hideaway spot within easy access of Millbrook, and the train into New York.
