Romanticize the farm life? Charmed by the idea of working the land as a hobby farmer or are you just looking for a weekend escape were you can unwind, relax, ski, hike or just sit on your front covered porch and look at the beautiful Vista? Well welcome to "The Farm" where the view is unmatched and sets this property in a class of its own! Just turn in the driveway you'll feel the stress roll off your shoulders. Pass by paddocks on the right and fields of hay on the left just before you arrive at your secluded mini estate. Upon arrival, turn around to see spectacular unobstructed panoramic valley and Catskill Mountain views. From the moment you step on to the porch of this beautifully handcrafted Colonial home you'll begin to see attention to detail everywhere. The wraparound porch is designed to encompass those amazing views including your private stocked pond. With mahogany decking, stately columns, and framed by mature hedges it's a perfect place for entertaining or de stressing from the cares of the world with an evening cocktail an afternoon lemonade curled up with a cozy book or a morning coffee. From there you'll step in through the double cedar doors into the main living area. The carefully thought-out open floor plan with 10 foot ceilings allow you to have those views from every room here. In addition there are three, four panel French doors that open to the beautiful covered porch which allows you to truly bring the outdoors in and are an entertainers dream. The custom kitchen is everything a chef would desire. Professional stainless steel appliances, Kraftmaid Cherry cabinets, granite countertops and a pantry to hold all your goodies just to name a few of the fine features you'll find in this kitchen. The dining room with its exquisite chandelier oversized windows and french doors is perfect for those evenings a too chilly for the porch but still behold those views. Speaking of chilly evenings the whole first floor is heated radiantly and covered with beautiful laminate flooring.The first-floor bath is complete with antique vanity travertine countertop and marble sink. The main floor is also where you'll find access to the attached two-car garage, oversized mudroom and laundry room. The kitchen is where you'll access to the back garden area but more about that later. From the living room you'll head up the grand staircase with custom balusters to the master suite, two guest bedrooms and the third bath. The master suite consists of a gorgeous master bath with an oversized soaking tub a shower big enough for two with a wall of jets and a custom-crafted Moroccan style antique vanity with bowl sink and matching shelving unit. A walk-in closet so large it could be converted into a 4th bedroom...Really...a private Juliet balcony overlooking the back garden and views from every window. The two guest bedrooms are generously sized and feature chandeliers in each room. There's also a full dry basement with two bonus rooms complete with closets and high ceilings perfect for studio, den or office and the homes utilities. Back downstairs and out the french kitchen door is where you'll find masses of lovely landscaping, a pergola with wisteria dripping through over a stone patio and the perfect setup for a summer kitchen. It's also where you'll find the private outdoor shower, and large garden shed. Head down the driveway and you'll pass the outdoor wood-burning furnace that keeps the home toasty all winter long, you'll pass the chicken coop and arrive at the five stall barn with heated tack room with hot water, 200 amp service, cable, phone and internet. No expense was spared while constructing this barn plus 2 run-in sheds and multiple paddocks for grazing. The current owners and builders of this property thought about everything. From the central air to the generator ready set up to the multiple ways to heat this property and too many other details to mention. All you have to do is come in and take your shoes off and relax.

Mortage Calculator

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.
