Private Country Compound

This impressive custom designed property offers the perfect opportunity to staycation, while still being located in commuting distance to NYC. The level four acres is second to none with sweeping lawns, professional perennial beds, a custom pergola, spacious deck and sparkling saltwater pool. For the young at heart, a fabulous play structure offers hours of fun, while the fully enclosed, fenced property offers peace of mind for the adults.

Unique touches lend style to the interior of the home. Antique latch style locks join beadboard accents, stone fireplaces, large true divided light windows, high ceilings and French doors to create a modern farmhouse sensibility.

The rooms flow seamlessly from one to the other and include a beautiful living room with a custom wood burning fireplace, spacious dining room capable of hosting a large dinner party, and a fabulous oversized, tucked away home office for an easy work-at-home experience.

Central to the heart of the home is a colossal double-sided wood burning stone fireplace. Located between the kitchen and the family room, it is definitely a focal point. The recently remodeled kitchen includes honed quartzite counters and a large island perfect for casual dining, along with ample beadboard cabinetry, a SubZero refrigerator/freezer, Wolf six -burner gas range with double ovens and a griddle, as well as a Miele dishwasher. A walk in pantry provides additional storage. The breakfast room adjoins the huge family room, which walks out to the pergola and deck beyond. A large mud room and laundry act as a breezeway between the two-car garage and the kitchen, making this an ideal configuration for today’s busy lifestyle.

Upstairs, all the bedrooms are spacious with high ceilings. The master suite includes two large walk-in closets and an updated ensuite with two vanities, linen closet and large shower. The hall bath is also updated with a large vanity, claw foot tub and a separate stall shower. The lower level includes a large media room and a wet bar with a copper sink and mini-fridge, as well as a fabulous playroom and a gym.

The incredible property is second-to-none. Tucked back at the end of an accessway, it features a beautiful level, park-like estate surrounded by mature trees and is a place you will never want to leave. Beautiful landscaping, a refreshing 20 x 40 foot heated gunite saltwater pool and an incredible deck make this the perfect place for summer relaxation. And peace of mind comes easy with a whole house automatic generator in case of emergencies.  You’ll never want to leave!
