HUDSON VALLEY ARCHITECTURALLY DESIGNED ESTATE: Escape the busy life to a tranquil and serene 108 acre private paradise with the Shawangunk Mountains as your backdrop. Sunrises reflecting off the awe inspiring ridge, fiery sunsets, and deep black star filled nights, are just a few of the striking natural features of this property. This cedar shingle craftsman style home brings nature indoors, with architectural elements such as the acorn accents you will find carefully sourced throughout the house. This home is full of surprises and unexpected details, beginning with the 4 story turret that has many different uses. A welcoming covered entry porch has a dramatic bead-boarded barrel-vaulted ceiling that guides you into the front foyer where you will find the warm theme carried through to many of the living spaces. Designed for the family that is constantly bustling, the owners created a home & property that is pleasing to the eye yet functional and hardy enough to survive all the family & friends indoor and outdoor activities, all while being comfortable to live in. Your indoor activities may include an independent place to relax quietly or if you prefer a place to gather together then the additional 2200 sq. ft lower level is a secret hideaway that it is designed to encourage creativity and recreation. This lower level features area for doing art projects, watching children performances on a small stage in the theatre room, a separate billard room, and a media room to enjoy watching movies or a good ball game while being warmed by the Rumford stone fireplace. One of the homes most important features/qualities is a sense of shared environment, where you can communicate with one another from the chef approved kitchen thru the walkthrough butler pantry to the dining room (can become private by closing the pocket doors) or with those sitting in the family room or on the screened porch. All this can occur while you are looking at the expansive bluestone patios, dramatic mountains, landscaped grounds, natural woods and in-ground heated pool. The main floor library/study is flooded with natural light, but still feels warm with its wood paneled walls, coffered wood beamed ceiling, craftsman style lighting and a river rock Rumford fireplace. Three walls are used to store books, decor and personal items, leaving your desk or desks clutter free yet still room to have a wet bar & mini built-in refrigerator.
