Stanfordville house description

Drive by horse farms, wineries and sheep meadows, and feel your blood pressure drop as you approach your home away from home in bucolic Clinton Corners.
Pull into the drive and you will immediately see that this handcrafted, wood beauty set on just under 2 acres is no ordinary vacation rental.
You are welcomed by the front porch with Adirondack chairs and table surrounded by columns carefully hewn from trees. Enter into the vaulted and beamed living area which includes a wood stove for those cool nights and plenty of room to lounge and read, chat, play board games... or even watch TV. Up a few steps and you'll find a chef's dream kitchen: Viking gas stove (yes, gas stove!), Jenn Air Oven; Kitchen Aid fridge and dishwasher - loads of cookbooks or create your own masterpieces if you aren't going to use the outdoor charcoal grill!
Dine al fresco on one of 3 large outdoor decks – the 50 foot long, west-facing deck off the back with built in bench the whole length for glorious sunsets and starry nights; the covered porch off the side of the kitchen; or a casual snack or drink on the covered front porch. And if the temperature or weather doesn’t permit – dine in the dining room with sliding door onto the back deck.
When your day of exploring this glorious part of the Hudson Valley has ended retreat to a delicious night’s sleep serenaded by frogs and crickets in one of the 2 bedrooms:
Master bedroom: upstairs is the huge, open and vaulted Master Bedroom with a handmade, king-sized bed crafted by the previous owner and even sliding doors leading to a small, west-facing balcony – a full bathroom with clawfoot tub and shower are also on the upper floor.
Guest bedroom: a peaceful night’s sleep awaits in the queen sized second bedroom – another full bathroom with tub and shower is just a few steps from the door
Take full advantage of the boundless and beautiful outdoor spaces by getting some sun on the deck, have a cocktail while playing bocce or croquet as the sun is setting …or take a long, lazy afternoon nap in one of the 2 hammocks.
For those times when you stay in: read one of the many, many books on the shelves throughout the house; use the super fast wifi internet that is available; watch HD TV; play board games…the world is your oyster.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2014

                  About the owner: We live in Brooklyn and work in NYC.

                  Why the Owner Chose Stanfordville:
                  We both fell in love with it the moment we saw it. The previous owner was a master wood worker and built it from the ground up. It reminded us both so very much of my family's house in Sweden. It's just paradise!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  No need to take blood pressure medication while you are here. Fall asleep to the sound of frogs and crickets and wake to the whinnying of the horses across the way...
