About the Property
Farmhouse, 3 Bedrooms + Toddler room (in Master), 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 5)
Enjoy country life in "THE CLERMONT", 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!
We are a mile North from the town of Red Hook border in bucolic Clermont, and a lovely bike ride to the Villages of Germantown and Tivoli.
--The quaint villages of TIVOLI and GERMANTOWN are 5 minutes away or a lovely 3-4 mile bike ride on scenic lanes.
--RED HOOK is small town America at it's best and is a 10 minute drive to farm markets, movies and all the services you might need.
--We are 20 minutes in either direction from RHINEBECK shops and restaurants or fabulous antiquing in HUDSON with over 50 shops in a few block radius.
--Swim in beautiful LAKE TAGHANIC 20 minutes away with 2 sandy beahes, picnicing, boat rental and more.
--Hike, mountain bike and rock scramble at magnificent MOHONK or MINNEWASKA 40 minutes south and visit charming New Paltz on the way out.
--INSIDERS TIP: Other local favorites of ours include the cool little town of Tivoli, killer Skizza's at GiGi's, $6.50 first run movies in Red Hook and Holy Cow ice cream with throwback prices, our very own Tousey winery tasting room in Clermont, the magnificent Performing Arts Center at Bard, swimming in the local pond, country breakfast at the Historic Diner in Red Hook, air shows at The Rhinebeck Aerodrome, world class dance at Kaatsbaan in Tivoli, gourmet Otto's Market in Germantown and pick your own everything at Greig Farm.

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 Germantown, NY, USA:
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. Our little hamlet of Germantown is no longer a well kept secret, according to the New York Times October 26, 2016: "A vibrant upstate New York town, set against a quaint backdrop". Google it and you'll see!
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, views of big Belgian horses, majestic old trees and a classic country porch where we watch the 'world go by'.
