Property description

THE HOME

Enjoy country life in a beautiful home on 4 acres on a quiet lane with views of horses, barns and rolling fields. The property has a sunny garden, majestic old trees, sweeping front porch and is just 2 hours from Manhattan. It's a quiet and lovely country setting, yet close to quaint villages, restaurants and entertainment.

This Arts & Crafts style home was built in 1912 and is a classic and comfortable country home. It has buttery wood floors, large leaded glass windows, original hardware and handsome fireplace and columns - but now has modern amenities like central air conditioning, brand new kitchen, WiFi and Internet TV loaded with Netflix films, HBOgo and more. Perfect for a romantic getaway or gathering of family and friends.

Our home is ideal for 4 people in terms of living space, bathrooms etc. There are 3 private bedrooms, two with queens and one full-sized futon. In addition the master has an adjoining room that was formerly a nursery with a full size futon and window, (3 1/2 bedrooms total, sleeps 4 adults and 1 child).

We love to watch the 'world go by' from our inviting front porch which overlooks rolling fields on a quiet country lane. You can BBQ or lounge in the landscaped garden with peonies and hydrangeas and majestic old trees. Walk down to the horse fencing at the edge of our property and visit our neighbor's horses - 15 magnificent Belgian's that show in local fairs and parades. Cycle over winding country roads and pass barns, country markets and animals including unexpected ones like Llama, Ostrich and Buffalo!

Owner info

About the owner: I am a native New Yorker who discovered the Hudson Valley years ago when I was looking for a quiet escape from the pressures of a career in advertising. Our family spent many summers and weekends here enjoying country life. Now that the kids are older it's a pleasure to share our home and all our favorite places with you!

Why the Owner Chose Clermont:
This area is so close to the city, yet it's truly another world up here - small town America at it's best. First we fell in love with the tiny town of Tivoli, then realized what a gem it was to have Bard in our backyard. Our playground are the towns of Rhinebeck and Red Hook and we also spend a lot of time hiking and skiing the Catskills.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
We fell in love with this home the moment we saw it - built by hand 100 years ago with oak trees from the property, this was a wedding gift from a man to his wife. It's a handsome house with a really warm and comforting vibe, majestic old trees and a classic country porch where we watch the 'world go by'.
