Dream Home

I was reluctant to share this house with the blogosphere because I am terrified that someone will be able to save up $3 million dollars before the husband and I can and snatch this lovely place right out from under us (can you hear me laughing?) I seriously have started playing the lottery because of this house.

This 5,000 square foot Greek Revival is located in New York's Hudson Valley. The property is situated on 21.4 acres and the property is adjacent to 1,100 acres protected by the Dutchess Land Conservancy.

If you walked into the home through the front door you'd be greeted by this foyer

which leads to this dining room and this sitting room

or you could go in through a side entrance which would take you to this mudroom

and if you have a home business there is a separate entrance into this study, which can be completely closed off from the main house

And if that's still not enough, you can enter in through the attached barn that has been configured as a two car garage. 

The garage will take you into the kitchen, or you can choose to go upstairs 21 x 23 foot open loft with 16 foot high cathedral ceilings, exposed pine beams and an en suite bath.

Through the garage, the mudroom and the dining room you can access the kitchen, complete with gorgeous painted maple cabintry, a farmhouse sink, soapstone countertops, SubZero and Viking appliances and panoramic views.

And through the kitchen you can access the breakfast area which leads to a bluestone terrace and a 10 x 16 outdoor dining porch.

Through the breakfast nook, you can access the living room which can also be reached through the study

The second floor has 4 bedrooms, a master, a guest suite with a fireplace and ensuite bath and two smaller bedrooms each with a walk in closed and a shared bath.

 The home features wide plank Old Growth Eastern White Pine floors that have been hand sanded and hand stained. I'd buy this house for the floors alone. The house was built using entirely green practices and the property has active horse trails that connect to hundreds of miles of riding trails maintained by the Millbrook Hunt.

If you by this house, please, just invite me over for a meal. I just want to say I've stepped foot inside this place. I'm off to buy a lottery ticket. Some recent high school graduate just won $1M on a $5 scratch off here two weeks ago. This fact, is not helping my dose of daily reality.
