Property description

Only a leisurely two hour drive from New York City, this modern home is located on a scenic country road, ten minutes from the village of Rhinebeck. A popular weekend destination, Rhinebeck is well known as the home of Omega Institute (5 minute drive) as well as for its boutiques (Haldora, No Sugar, Winter Sun & Summer Moon, Cesare & Lili, etc), specialty shops (Paper Trail, Face of Stockholm, Hammertown, Oblong Books & Music, etc.), and fine dining (Gigi Trattoria, Arielle, Starr Place, Terrapin, Sabroso, etc). You can even see a first-run independent film at the popular art house cinema Upstate Films. Rhinebeck is also home to the Dutchess County Fairgrounds which hosts the famous Dutchess County Fair, the annual Sheep and Wool Fest, Rhinebeck Antiques Fair and many more events throughout the year. Day trips to Woodstock, the Berkshires, Dia Beacon, Storm King, Olana, the FDR library and Vanderbilt Mansion are easy to make.

Accommodations: Our contemporary abode is a perfect home away from home. Easily accommodating four to six people, the open floor plan is cozy and inviting. Families are welcome (no pets please). We have three bedrooms and two full baths, a modern chefs kitchen (and outdoor gas grill), a screened-in back porch with picnic table, and a fireplace where you can warm your bones after a long day. For your convenience, we have an easily accessible washer and dryer as well as a TV and DVD player. Our well-stocked bookcase includes a section dedicated to the historic Hudson Valley. Two adult bikes and a child’s bike are also available for your use.

Gardening: We also offer a wonderful environment to get in touch with your inner gardener. Whether you want to mulch, weed, rake, water or all of the above, you are welcome to make use of our many flower beds. We will provide the knee pads, trowels, etc. Let us know what you want to do, and we will help.

Kicking Back: If you simply want to get away from it all and enjoy the nature, the area offers excellent birdwatching, hiking, apple picking, biking, and horseback riding minutes from your front door. You can also kick back on our private landscaped three acre property and read a great book, or play a rousing game of Bocce on our full size court.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Hi, my name is Paul English and my family and I own this wonderful property. We live in Brooklyn and felt it was very important that we had a place to go to getaway from the city and spend time in nature. We have two little boys and we wanted them to have the opportunity to be able to play in the woods, to have a large yard to play in, to keep a garden and to observe the natural world. We love our trips to this beautiful spot in the Hudson Valley and welcome you to come and enjoy it as well.
