Custom Colonial Farmhouse In Spectacular Natural Setting

Located in the most perfect commute location to NYC and down county, this exquisite residence showcases top-of-the-line amenities with understated style.

A gorgeous wrap-around porch welcomes you to this custom-built, shingle-style Colonial Farmhouse in a perfect commute location close to route 35. Upon entering, the transitional color palette, 9-foot ceilings, spectacular moldings and glass transoms reflect the quality in both design and workmanship found in a high-end luxury home, while avoiding the ‘McMansion’ standard floor plan.

The formal living room includes beautiful cherry hardwood floors and a marble fireplace with two sets of single French doors leading to the porch. The adjoining library- accessed by double French doors- also allows access to the porch. The dining room features elegant picture frame paneling and a Chef’s swing door into the gourmet kitchen. Granite counters, a large center island, soft white cabinetry and stainless steel professional appliances perfectly complement the breakfast room with pendant lighting and access to the large deck at the rear of the home. Directly open to an expansive family room, which includes a wet bar, coffered ceilings and a gorgeous top-to-bottom fieldstone fireplace, this kitchen-breakfast-family room combination serves as the true heart of the home where everyone can gather to create wonderful memories.

Upstairs, the master suite includes a walk-in closet and dressing area, as well as a spa-like bath with marble, glass and stainless accents. The additional three bedrooms have access to a Jack & Jill bath or are ensuite. Laundry is also found here. The finished third floor provides a wonderful bonus room with dormer windows, built-in window seat storage and unfinished attic space.

The further finished lower level includes a functional mudroom with oversized cubbies and access to the two car garage, as well multiple closets and wainscoting throughout the entry and stairway. A cozy recreation room provides a great place for additional space to ‘hang out’.

Outside, the wrap-around front porch can be accessed from every room at the front of the house and is a perfect place to enjoy sunset with a glass of wine. The expansive rear deck gets the morning light, so is shady in the afternoon and has been the site of many a barbeque. The beautiful level grounds feature manicured lawns, specimen and mature plantings, perennial beds and a natural pond and wetlands that have been extensively rehabilitated and are home to all manner of wildlife.

Close to route 35, this home is only minutes to the Village center, yet is situated perfectly for commuting to Westchester County and New York City.
