Property description

Built in 1850, our wonderful colonial farmhouse offers the comfort of today while retaining the charm of an earlier time. It's perfect for a couple or family in search of a clean, modern house with beautiful gardens, a private swimming pond and a quiet location. Plus, we are an easy 5-minute drive from the village with shops, restaurants and a historic movie theater.

The house has a huge front to back living room with exposed beams and fireplace, formal dining room, modernized country kitchen with breakfast nook, great screened porch with vintage swing, huge master suite with vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, adjoining office, and a pantry and laundry room. The house is equipped with toys and games for little children but is also uncluttered and sophisticated.

The house has 1 king size bed in the master bedroom, a full in the guest room, and 2 twin beds in the children's room. The downstairs couch opens to a queen size bed. We also provide a toddler pack 'n play and an aero bed if you require additional sleeping space. It is comfortable for two or four adults and up to four kids. All bedrooms and two bathrooms are upstairs. A half-bath is downstairs.

Outside, the house is surrounded by extensive stone walls, groomed woodland and perennial gardens filled with peonies, daffodils, lilacs, tulips, iris, dogwood, oriental poppies and wisteria. We also have a fruit and vegetable garden with zucchini, strawberries, snap peas, carrots, swiss chard and summer squash. A private spring-fed swimming pond with bass and carp, and a separate koi pond, are just across the road.

Our kitchen has state-of-the-art appliances, a dishwasher, toaster, microwave and two ovens. Washer and dryer are in the pantry. There is a TV with a DVD player in the living room, and an ipod/iphone stereo dock. The house also has WiFi. A weber grill will be provided, as well as fishing rods, inner tubes, bocci, croquet, soccer goals, balls, bats and racquets. Public tennis courts are a 5-minute walk away. A tree swing, hammock and a large picnic table are also on the property. In the winter, the land is perfect for sledding and tubing.

We are located between Hudson, NY and Great Barrington, Mass, atop a hill with majestic views of the Berkshires and the Catskill mountains. Close to skiing, swimming, great restaurants, farms and hiking, we are situated in a gorgeous, historic area with many things to do in every season.

Specific attractions/things to do in our area include:

- Browse the Hudson Farmers Market in the summer
- Pick your own fruit at countless orchards
- Go antiquing and dine at one of the many renowned restaurants in Hudson
- Visit biodynamic Hawthorne Valley Farm
- See the outdoor sculptures/gallery at Art Omi
- Swim in the lake or swing on the playground at Crellin Park
- Pet and feed the alpacas at Spruce Ridge Farm
- In the Spring, see baby sheep at Kinderhook Farm
- Buy cheese and yogurt at Old Chatham Sheepherding Company
- Picnic by the pond and pet rescued horses at Equine Advocates
- Take a yoga/exercise class in the village
- See a movie at Crandell Theatre in the village
- Hike or bike the Rail Trail
- See the waterfalls at Bash Bish Falls

Catamount and Butternut ski resorts, Hudson, Queechee Lake and Taconic State Park are all a quick 20-minute drive away.

Tanglewood in the Berkshires is also a main attraction during the summer.
