Beautiful home built in 2005 to resemble historic 1800's farmhouse sits high on a 10-acre property in Middletown Valley and enjoys stunning views from every room to the surrounding fields, sunset, and neighboring creek. The bank barn / garage / home office could also provide expansive guest accommodation. The house has been freshly painted and includes custom architecture developed with the help of a historic architect, 3 fireplaces, a farmhouse kitchen with restaurant style gas stove, separate pantry, reclaimed newel posts, interior transom windows, pocket doors, an antique clawfoot tub and bluestone porches. The kitchen looks out on the vegetable garden, shed, and terraced flower beds. The hay fields would be ideal horse pastures or vineyards.
The floor plan flows easily and the entire first floor has hardwood floors, lots of light from all the windows, and built-in speakers. The library / dining room has hand-built shelves and doubles as a home office with built-in filing cabinets under the bookshelf. The kitchen includes exposed beams, a mudroom on the barn side, a huge island with hewn granite countertop, and an expansive table / seating area by the fireplace with a steel swing arm for cooking over the fire. French doors lead to a large, covered porch out back with its own brick fireplace. Adjacent to the back porch there is a brick patio which is perfect for an umbrella table and barbeque.
Up the wide hardwood stairway to the second floor there is a primary suite, well-appointed laundry room, and three more bedrooms. The primary bedroom includes a lofted ceiling with exposed beams, walk-in closet, and bathroom with a clawfoot tub and shower.
The house was built into a hillside and the basement has French doors opening onto a stone courtyard, full-height ceilings, a guest suite with bedroom and bathroom, a gym / dance studio with hardwood floor, and a second living room.
The house is solidly built with thick walls, concrete foundation, exterior genuine stone walls on the basement, brick on the first and second floor, and a standing seam metal roof. The front and back porches are built with bluestone flooring and beadboard ceilings.
The barn was designed to resemble a historic bank barn built into the hill. It is a sturdy structure with stone on the foundation, Hardie Board siding, and a standing seam metal roof with cupolas. On the ground floor is a 3-car garage with over-sized bays and a utility room. For future expansion there is an additional one and a half stories of over 1,400 square feet of fully framed floor plan for guest accommodation, home office, or studio. It has a vaulted ceiling sporting huge, exposed beams, and is designed to include a large open space, separate kitchenette, full bathroom, and loft, all of which have been roughed in, along with the septic connection. The building has electricity, interior and exterior lighting, overhead fans, and a separate electric meter. There is also lots of additional parking and a large circular driveway.
The property has been farmed for hay since 2002 and the owners have put no chemicals on the fields since that time. It presents a great opportunity for growing organic grapes for wine production. Around the hay fields, re-wilding has been encouraged in the small ravines which provide habitat for wild turkeys, foxes, deer, hawks, eagles, and other animals. The farm is a beautiful place to work from home, enjoy nature, and host friends and family. *** Old world charm with none of the maintenance issues ***
