Situated on 11 acres with protected panoramic views, this farmhouse style inspired home with its modern conveniences and energy efficient features, offers the perfect setting for comfortable and stylish contemporary country living. Turn down a quiet country lane, drive alongside the fruit orchard and turn into the drive and up to the home which sets against a backdrop of lush woods. A welcoming porch and front door await. The front hall or 'keeping room' (a Colonial term for a gathering room usually near the kitchen for socializing as well as warmth) features French doors to the wide wrap around porch providing easy access for alfresco dining on lovely summer days and evenings. The adjacent kitchen has top of the line appliances, granite counter tops and a large country sink. The formal dining room with fireplace leads to the living room which has three sides of windows allowing for an abundance of natural light and fresh air. The cathedral ceiling with hand hewn beams, built in bookcases, hardwood floors, French doors to the porch and wood burning fireplace lends this room to large gatherings or cozy evenings by the fire. The master suite is on the first floor. Featuring a large walk in closet and full bath, this room with its cathedral ceiling also has French doors which lead to a charming bluestone terrace - the perfect place for morning coffee or quiet contemplation while listing to the nearby babbling stream. The second floor features two bedrooms, a full bath and large balcony. The large barn houses a two car garage which has the potential for additional guest space or a studio above. The highly regarded local architect, Jimmy Crisp, designed the home for today's indoor/outdoor lifestyle and seamless access and views to the fields and meadows beyond. Extremely convenient to the Taconic Parkway, Metro North Trains and 5 minutes to the Village of Millbrook.
