537 Tyrrel Road, Millbrook
537 Tyrrel Road is a rare, perfectly curated and comfortable home that echoes its history, and the landscape of the peaceful Dutch farmland in which it rests. The current finishes of this nearly two hundred year old farmhouse have brought it tastefully and elegantly into the 21st Century, with the modern addition of a large country kitchen - with an ample pantry and plenty of storage - along with creative architectural flourishes that provide a flow to the living areas that allow a more open and contemporary feel than its original design. Downstairs offers back entry through a convenient mudroom, and a generously-sized powder room. The dining area - set appealingly in the center and heart of the home - is surrounded by a comfortable beamed living room, leading to the media room - with a large skylight - and across from a more formal den, and adjacent study with light streaming in from the bay window in the front: Nooks everywhere for reading, quiet contemplation, or lively conversation. The experience of the downstairs reminds you that the size of a space is not just where your feet can fit, but where your sight can see. Upstairs, the four bedrooms and two baths have been renovated with a nod to the historical significance of the original layout. This home boasts two working fireplaces, original wide plank flooring, and a screened-in porch overlooking the gardens and a sumptuous heated pool for outdoor relaxation. The grounds, with more than two acres of rolling hills and quiet woods hosts two garages, and two artists’ studios complete with electricity, sitting separate from the main house. A literary history comes along with the property in that best-selling author Judith Rossner completed her most acclaimed work in the writer's studio behind the main house. The full-sized pool and landscaped grounds are well-maintained with an emphasis on accentuating the local flora and fauna, rather than overpowering it. 537 Tyrrel Road is an hour and a half from NYC, an hour from Albany, a five minute drive from the Village of Millbrook, and a fifteen minute walk to Innisfree, the 158-acre botanical landmark regarded as one of the “world’s 10 best gardens.” This lovely residence can accommodate year 'round enjoyment for its new owner, or provide a lucrative and well-proven stream of revenue from city-weary visitors. Limited showings are available by appointment.
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.
