About the Property

17 private acres, 5 + Bedrooms , 4 baths (sleeps 8-10 comfortably)

"It just FEELS AMAZING here!" is the most common sentiment expressed the minute someone walks into our home.

Our main house is set on a very secluded ridge overlooking a 17 acre field, beautiful pond, and the Catskill Mountains. The sunsets each evening are spectacular. There are 4-bedrooms, 3-full/1-half bathrooms in the main house. A large sunny living room is perfect for catching up on your reading or chatting with family and friends. A large, open dining area with center island kitchen lets you prep dinner while socializing too. A TV/movie room offers a 55 in. Samsung Flatscreen Smart TV, surround-sound stereo, DVD player, game table, fireplace, and expansive views of the pond and mountains. There's an upstairs library area with desk (in case that one last email needs to get sent). Wireless extends throughout the house to the pool area.

Upstairs you'll find an expansive and luxurious master bedroom with sitting area, private balcony, and an incredible view to wake up to - also a large en-suite master bath, with jacuzzi tub and a two person shower. There is another queen sized bedroom upstairs with it's own bathroom. A "second master" bedroom is located on the main floor, with a comfortable king bed, sliding glass doors to the outside, and it's own en-suite bathroom with shower and tub.

Finally there's a loft/futon bedroom on a third level for the adventurous! (Easily accessible by a short ladder)

Just outside the main house you'll find a trellis-covered patio, with grill and two picnic tables, a swing...the perfect setting for a summer grill out. Around the corner, past the herb garden, is another private patio area overlooking the pond with Adirondack chairs--ideal for enjoying your morning coffee, or a sip of wine at the end of the day.

The pool house includes a painter's studio, a cedar sauna, a work-out area with cardio equipment, weights and a half- bathroom. Upstairs, a fully accommodated apartment, with complete kitchen, full bath, cozy bedroom and a child bed and couch in the living area--perfect for a small family or couple to set up shop. The apartment's balcony looks out over the pool and offers a spectacular view of the Catskill mountains. PLEASE NOTE: THE POOL HOUSE APARTMENT IS NOT AVAILABLE IN WINTER MONTHS.

There's also a large yard out front, big enough for a game of touch football, Frisbee or working on the short game.

In the pool area you'll find an elegant, deep blue gunite pool surrounded by bluestone tiles authentic to the region, Smith & Hawken lounge chairs, and a dining table and chairs that easily seats 10.

Car: Recommended

The Hudson River Valley. The beauty that inspired the Hudson River School of painting. Rolling hills, winding two-lane country roads, sunsets on the river, farms feeding local restaurants and farmers markets, horse country, beautiful Hudson River river estates of the Vanderbilts, Roosevelts, and Livingstons, The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park fueling/elevating the quality of every local restaurant. All of it just minutes away, or maybe we'll just stay home today and sit by the pool.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

Why the Owner Chose Staatsburg, NY, USA:
The location (10 minutes from Rhinebeck, yet totally secluded), the setting, the seasons, the river, the sunsets.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Extremely private, luxurious estate that allows you to feel completely away from it all - yet still get to town within 10 minutes for some of the best dining in the country. Easy access from NYC by train or car.
