1955 Lucas Turnpike, High Falls
A long winding drive leads to this dramatic private108-acre estate, which is crowned by a stunning 6000 square-foot modern single-story home that’s complemented by a two-bedroom guesthouse, four-car garage with apartment above and a four–stall barn. The land offers a combination of open fields, woods with riding trails and extensive frontage on the Rondout Creek. The massive great room, a glass box of sorts with 16-foot ceilings, is the heart of the stone and stucco main home. A double-sided fireplace, which is also open to one of the bluestone patios, anchors the room on its southern exposure. It’s the ideal space for entertaining on any scale, from intimate dinner and movie nights to elaborate catered affairs. The kitchen is outfitted with the highest caliber of appliances and cabinetry, which are echoed in the wet bar and serving area on the north wall of the great room. The house’s west-facing guest wing includes two ensuite bedrooms and a den, which can easily function as additional sleeping space. The east wing incorporates what the owners call his and hers masters – two adjoining bedrooms, one with a fireplace - and opulent his and hers bathrooms, his with a large soaking tub and walk-in shower, and hers with a large walk-in shower and bidet. A large home office, lofted gym, two powder rooms and a mudroom complete the main living level. The full basement has 12-foot ceilings and incorporates a billiard room, movie room and full bath, as well as an enormous fireplace, and offers direct access to the beautiful outdoors. A covered walkway leads to the four-car garage, above which the one-bedroom apartment serves as additional guest space or caretaker’s quarters. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom guesthouse is like a precious jewel box in comparison to the main home, yet was built with the same care and attention to high quality materials and workmanship as all aspects of this impressive compound.
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.
