.....If you love the river and artistic landscaping, this unique Dutch Colonial home is for you.
Enjoy amazing views of the Hudson River and walk around 1.3 acres of grass, gardens and fruit trees. Stone retaining walls surround private gardens, with grape vines and orchards in the distance reminiscent of vineyards in France.
Every room in the house is sun filled and spacious with scenic views from every window. There are original hardwood floors, doors and woodwork throughout. A stone and slate fireplace is the centerpiece for the large living room that has French doors which open into a roomy sunroom with new skylights. It is a charming quiet space to watch activity on the river, read, work on the computer, yoga or exercise.
Off the kitchen, sliding glass doors open on to a large deck with plenty of room for relaxing on deck chairs. Or cooking on the grill and having dinner outside under a retractable sun setter awning in shade and privacy.
As an added bonus, there's a 576 SF modern loft area above the garage, with high ceilings, and new windows that also overlook the river. It is temperature controlled with heat and AC. Perfect for a private office, workshop, or creative art studio.
Great parking up to 7 cars. --two cars can be parked outside and additionally there's a five bay garage (three street at level and two below).
Also, the home has a brand-new roof with 15 year guarantee, plus solar panels reducing monthly electric bills significantly.
Located in the heart of Milton, (a hamlet of Marlborough) this home is just down the street from Buttermilk Falls Spa and Henry's restaurant. The Culinary Institute, WestPoint, Vassar, SUNY New Paltz, about a thirty minute drive.
We love the home's character and quaint charm with modern interior touches.
There are many farmers markets, and u pick orchards for apples and fruit and numerous wine vineyards.
Watching the River out of our window, there is always something amazing to witness from eagles skimming for fish above the water, sunrises, rainbows, full moons, or ships passing.
Yet, Manhattan is only 90 minutes away from New York City by car or Metro North trains to New York City enjoying the creativity and excitement the city has to offer.
