Description

Nestled among 100 acres of preserved land, this circa 18th century, 50-acre gentleman's farm is truly a masterpiece in design and quality. A very private and tranquil setting is evident upon entering the long stone walled drive. In a region known for its superb countryside, charming river towns and equestrian pursuits, Stone Creek Farm enjoys splendid surroundings embracing lush woodlands and meadows highlighted by a pond and bordering a stream. The home resides over beautifully landscaped lawns and gardens w/blue stone terraces, saltwater pool & spa and an all-weather tennis court. Its centerpiece is an extraordinary country manor w/2 wings designed around an 18th century stone farmhouse. Its superb details include custom mill work, beaded pine paneling and heart of pine floors from a Georgia plantation, as well as antique hand-hewn beams from NY's Fraunces Tavern. The stately elegance and antique warmth of the home is revealed throughout with stone walls, beamed ceilings, deep set windows, an original keeping room w/Dutch doors & walk-in fireplace to the expansive and dramatic great room w/23' soaring ceiling, Palladian window, double sets of French doors, marble fireplace & sky lit loft. A chef's kitchen w/Butler's pantry & built-in wet bar, all open to the glass enclosed sun room which opens to the terrace & pool. An elegant master bedroom offers a fireplace, a luxurious Carrera marble bath & shower room, his/her walk-in closets & gentleman's study. Two 2nd floors w/private guest rooms, baths & office. Lower level provides a fitness center, sauna & thousand bottle wine cellar. A powder room, modern-day mudroom, laundry room & the entrance to the attached 2 car garage complete the main house. The circa 1740's stone barn was meticulously rebuilt & restored, preserving original details by a master craftsman to create a multi-use space of both modern luxury & period warmth & charm. Two immaculate additional multi-use barns complete this complex. The lovingly renovated 4-bedroom Craftsman guest "cottage" sits behind its own white picket fence. A fruit orchard, cutting garden and stocked pond offer outstanding views.
