On picturesque River Road, minutes from Rhinebeck NY sits a fully restored 1890 Victorian Farmhouse on 9.6 acres of pastoral land with luscious landscaping and gardens. Restored with every attention to detail, Spalted Maple Countertops, the open concept chef's kitchen is a cooks dream. The center island is large enough for prep with still room for cocktails and appetizers. Yum. Liebherr fridge, Fisher Paykel drawer dishwasher and Capitol gas stove with hood. There is a matching 9' Spalted Maple dining table (can be purchased separately) that seats 12, all overlooking the westerly sunsets.
The living/entertainment room is ready for binge watching and entertaining. There is also a convenient full bath/laundry/storage on the main floor. The beautiful wooden staircase was built by local shipbuilders in the off season of the Hudson whaling season. Walls were removed to create a gracious Owner's Bedroom, guest bedroom/office, walk-in closet (was probably a nursery and could be again) and a bright spacious full bath with a 78" shower with 2 shower heads and a window for natural light.
The third floor is a large artist's studio and a separate room with the best sunset view for your heart's desire. The floors are finished reclaimed cherry, the doors are original, the doorknobs are the same as Wilderstein (all stripped and operable) and every Victorian hinge has been stripped and polished.
Both the carriage house and the barn are restored for your car and storage. The barn is the shop but would make a fabulous pool house overlooking the stream.
As you step out the kitchen door the enormous bluestone patio facing west is perfect for entertaining, protected by landscaping and directs you to the fenced organic garden. Or cool off in the outdoor shower.
The entire 9.6 acres are bordered by stone walls. The basement has a new concrete floor, laid-up stone walls and houses a gym and wine cellar. The house is heated with Prestige Propane boiler controlled by the Nest, has two zones, and the heat pump condenser runs the heat and the AC. All new plumbing, hot water circulator, UV with water softener, 6" well casing, all top of the line fixtures. All new Marvin double pane 2 over 2 windows. New custom standing seam metal roof in tobacco. All new wiring, closed cell insulation, utilities are underground. There is a whole house generator.
