About 461 Silvernails Road
Silvernails Farm is a legacy compound in the heart of the Hudson Valley, home to the breathtaking confluence of the Roeliff Jansen Kill and the Shekomeko Creek, a large natural basin, set within 127 acres of pristine land, integral to both Mohican and Dutch history. The recently completed 7,500sf main residence features lime stucco walls and solid fieldstone masonry on the interior and exterior with a mix of hardwood and Jerusalem limestone flooring. With 4 en-suite bedrooms, the residence also includes a powder room, private study/TV room, large laundry/pantry, wine cellar, and a gym. The living room with 26' ceilings is bracketed by two fireplaces. While embracing traditional craftsmanship and materials, the house is equipped with every modern convenience including an infrared sauna, steam room, 3 fireplaces, motorized shades, insect screens and radiant heated floors. The huge terrace has a covered seating area with a fully equipped kitchen, radiant floor heating and overhead heaters. The open design kitchen features a large pantry and workspace, 3 thick limestone counters, solid 3 walnut island with AGA stove and bar cabinet, twin dishwashers and sinks, crisper drawers, fridge, freezer, and wine fridge. There is a dog wash, covered firewood storage and a climate controlled two-car garage. South of the house, with magical river views and a fieldstone patio, sits a 60ft heated pool with an auto-cover. A fully renovated cottage delivers two separate living spaces: an upstairs 3-bedroom cottage and a downstairs 2-bedroom apartment. Several barns dating from the 1700's to the early 1900's include an equestrian barn with 9 large box stalls, heated wash stalls, tack room, office and feed room with a 2 bedroom apartment above. A utilitarian barn features additional stalls and an outdoor riding ring with show quality footing. Seven years of extensive effort has restored this sacred piece of land that inspires walking barefoot through the forest, basking in the river bends, and taking wild weed walks through the abundant forests that comprise a large portion of the property. Multiple outdoor living room vignettes with wooden decks inspire glamping and play in the natural beauty of this truly divine land. For sports enthusiasts, multiple options for riding, hiking, biking, rafting, kayaking, and superb fly-fishing are in abundance. Located 5 minutes from Pine Plains, 24 minutes from Rhinebeck and Hudson, this property epitomizes the Hudson Valley dream.
