About the Property
Complete Peace & Privacy On 35 Acres Of Beautiful Nature only 90 mins from NYC
A ¼ mile drive leads to a newly renovated mid century modern house nestling in a pretty hollow with a large pond and a stream, surrounded by beautiful woodland and marsh lands. A bird lover's paradise, this is a wonderful hideaway, with direct access from our land to the Appalachian Trail and the Pawling Nature reserve. The only sounds you will hear are the birds and the cicadas, and an occasional distant train. This is a new renovation of a light-filled 1900 sq ft mid-century modern home, with decking surrounding the house and huge floor to ceiling windows/doors, overlooking the pool, garden, pretty trees, stream and pond. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, separate office, which could be used as an additional bedroom. Kitchen/dining room. Separate loo downstairs. Living room with huge log fire. Outdoor swimming pool. Awning the length of the front of the house with a large outdoor table to seat 12 on one deck and another table to seat 8 on the other side. Wonderful for kids to be able to run free in the garden and the woodlands.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We're a British family who've been living in Manhattan for the past nearly seven years. Graeme is a photographer with a passion for doing up houses. Jennie looks after everything else. Our two children are Victory (age 5) and Grace (16 months).
Why the Owner Chose Wingdale, NY, USA:
We scoured everywhere within a 2ish hour drive of our home in Manhattan, looking for a special weekend place where we could really get away from the noise & bustle of the city and enjoy being in nature. We were also looking for something that needed some TLC, which we could enjoy restoring and transforming into something special. We stumbled across this hidden corner of Dutchess county almost by accident, and fell in love with this sweet spot. A true hideaway and utterly peaceful, amidst so much beautiful nature and all the flora and fauna of the nearby nature reserve. We loved the way the house is nestled in a hollow with open space around it, and the decking surrounding the house. The house had good bones but needed a complete restoration to bring it back to life. The garden and land have been left to run wild for a long time, but we are uncovering many beautiful trees, a gorgeous stream that runs through the garden and a huge pond.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Total peace - absolutely no road noise; total privacy - hidden away on 35 acres; beautiful nature; the feeling of just being able to relax and do nothing there; the inside/outside feeling of the light-filled house - so you feel amongst nature even when inside; gorgeous views; the pretty stream and the beautiful spring-fed pond; being able to walk directly from the house through the woods, and direct access to the Appalachian Trail and the Pawling Nature Reserve trails; amazing birds and wildlife; that the children can run free in the garden and in the woods; the light and spacious feel to the mid-century modern house, which we've renovated to stay true to it's original style whilst being completely comfortable; the surround deck and the swimming pool; the huge log fire and feeling cosy in the winter; the feeling of being 'away from it all' whilst only a 90 minute drive to NYC.
