Little Tree Farm, North Salem NY
Fabulous Horse Farm An Hour From NYC
Little Tree Farm is absolutely magnificent! An oasis just one hour from the hustle and bustle of New York City, and only minutes to Connecticut and Westchester counties’ vibrant villages, the farm offers a respite from the everyday. A truly manageable property, the amenities include two barns with a total of five walk outs, an outdoor riding ring, 4 paddocks, a cobblestone courtyard, grooms quarters or guest apartment, ample parking for an RV, horse trailer or multiple cars, and a perfectly restored c1842 farmhouse all nestled in a bucolic setting with amazing Titicus River views. Numerous sitting areas provide relaxing places for quiet reflection and inspiration while listening to the running water. A decorative wooden footbridge, gravel drives, and creative wooden gates mark the entrance to the farm, which is located in amongst the miles of North Salem Bridle Trails and surrounded by equestrian facilities offering a wide range of disciplines and boarding.
The beautifully restored and updated c1842 farmhouse exudes charm and character throughout! Original wide-board wood floors and walls of windows join French doors, elegant lighting and exquisite woodwork creating a relaxed style and presence.
Entering, a foyer greets you with front-to-back views of the paddocks beyond, while a spacious family room to your left enjoys a wood burning fireplace and numerous built-ins for extra storage. A side entrance offers access to an elegant mudroom with herringbone hardwood floors, multiple closets, a pantry and an updated half bath. The exquisite gourmet kitchen includes poured concrete counters, an oversized Bertazzoni 6-burner gas range with a stunning wall-to-wall professional vent hood, as well as a Miele dishwasher and Liebherr professional refrigerator. Wainscot cabinetry and a large butcher block island provide ample workflow and storage for the modern chef, while windows offer scenic views of the property on every side. The rear of the home is a study in tranquility with multiple sets of French doors offering access to the wrap-around porch as well as views of the river, paddocks, bridges and trees that give the farm its name. The breakfast and sitting rooms residing in this area of the home reflect a casual elegance.
Upstairs, all the bedrooms enjoy cathedral ceilings and a continuation of the original flooring, more large windows offering views from every angle and decorative, antique exposed beams running through the entire level. The master suite is spectacular with a large bedroom overlooking the paddocks, as well as a Waterworks bath with brass fixtures, a claw foot soaking tub, double granite vanity and an oversized steam shower. The walk-in dressing room includes custom floor-to-ceiling drawers and cabinets, along with shelving, hanging rods, and a shoe closet. A radiant heated sunroom off the master provides a cozy get-away year round. The two additional bedrooms include multiple closets and share a Waterworks full bath.
