19 Wire Rd., Livingston
Privately set back from the road with Hudson River and Catskill Mountain views, this 86-acre estate is magical. It is accessed by a long driveway through an apple orchard and past horse pastures, a pond and gardens. Located 2 hours by car or train from NYC, this country retreat makes a perfect family compound for a weekend or summer escape from the city or for year-round living. It is centered by a completely renovated and expanded 6-bedroom Victorian with a modern flair including beautifully-proportioned rooms with tall ceilings, wood floors, arched doorways and 3 working fireplaces. The renovations include all new electrical, plumbing, structural upgrades, internet wiring, backup generator, slate roofing and an energy efficient building envelope. Solar panels combined with geothermal heating/cooling provide a “green” and sustainable energy footprint, with utility costs averaging a remarkably low $200 per month. A central great room features a chef's kitchen with Wolf and Subzero appliances, quartz counters, breakfast area, island, oversized fireplace, and a soaring coffered ceiling. A wall of glass provides spectacular views of the river and mountains. An entertainment wing features an indoor geothermal heated pool in its own energy efficient enclosure for year-round use, including an ultraviolet sanitation system to eliminate chlorine smell. The original early 1900’s six-sided stone “icehouse” has been converted into a unique fully-equipped bar and wine room. There is a projection home theater and a game room with a pool table. Outside, a two-level slate terrace with pergola, summer kitchen and firepit overlooks sweeping lawn and gardens. A naturalist's paradise, there are over 2 miles of woodland trails for hiking, biking, birdwatching, ATV, X-country skiing or relaxing country walks. For swimming, fishing, canoeing or quiet picnics along the stream bank, the estate features over half a mile of private direct frontage on the Roe-Jan Kill. Finishing this magical setting is an attached three-car garage, a separate heated workshop/artist or music studio, two classic red barns, a three-stall horse barn and a chicken coop for fresh eggs. Several large fenced vegetable and flower gardens complete with automated irrigation systems allow you to grow your own organic vegetables. A guest/caretaker 3-bedroom house is available on a separate adjacent parcel.
This mortgage calculator can be used to figure out monthly payments of a home mortgage loan, based on the home's sale price, the term of the loan desired, buyer's down payment percentage, and the loan's interest rate. This calculator factors in PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) for loans where less than 20% is put as a down payment. Also taken into consideration are the town property taxes, and their effect on the total monthly mortgage payment.
