Property description

This lovely 3 bedroom, 2 and 1/2 bath home sits high on 26 acres, with distant views of the Berkshires and Litchfield Hills. The house, located in the heart of New York's Hudson Valley, is the perfect place to get away from it all. Tranquil, serene beauty greets you everywhere you look. The living room has great light with sliding glass doors that open onto a spacious, sun-drenched teak deck. A small stream runs through the property.

Stroll the grounds or take long, leisurely walks on quiet country roads. Take meals on a cool, screened porch overlooking towering oaks and maples. On chilly nights, curl up with a good book in front of the fireplace. From spring through autumn, there is an herb garden just off the kitchen. Five minutes away, pick organic blueberries, raspberries and strawberries at the renowned Thompson-Finch Farm. Or shop for organic produce and grass-fed beef, pork and poultry at the acclaimed Herondale Farm, five miles from your door.

If you would like to venture farther afield, enjoy the shops, restaurants and galleries in Hudson and Great Barrington. You are close to the performing arts as well, with Tanglewood, Bard Summerscape and Music Festival with the American Symphony Orchestra all within 30 to 40 minutes away. In Hudson, Club Helsinki is the new destination for cutting edge modern music and performance art. If you enjoy dance, the Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival is about an hour's drive. There are other nearby destinations and activities too numerous to mention. The house is equipped with satellite TV (with HBO) and Wi-Fi.

The most unique feature of this home, however, is the peace and serenity you will experience from the moment you arrive. Its location near the end of a magical, sparsely settled country lane guarantees that the only sounds you will hear are those of nature.
