Quintessential Country Beauty

Located in: Danby
Close your eyes and imagine a perfect farmhouse. What does it look like? Does it look like this?

Utterly private (on 175 acres), our home boasts an iconic view of majestic Dorset Mountain from the front rooms, while in the back are our own pastures and forest, extending nearly all the way up to Staples Farm.

The house has SIX BEDROOMS (one King; three Queens, one with double bunk beds, and one furnished as an upstairs den/writing room); 4.5 bathrooms; an enormous living room (with a magnificent marble fireplace); a den; a breakfast room; a formal dining room (with many leaves for the table); a rear living room/office; and the laundry area.

The house is ideal for a large family getaway – for that matter, for two or even three families – looking for a comfortable, luxurious residence to return to after a day spent
-At the HORSE SHOW (10 minutes),
-SKIING (25+ minutes, depending on where you go),
-SHOPPING at the Manchester Outlets (20 minutes),
-Swimming/boating at EMERALD LAKE (8 minutes),
-HORSEBACK RIDING (several stables within 5 minutes, for trail rides or indoor riding),
-Seasonal APPLE PICKING on our own trees, in the pastures (these are ancient trees that have never seen chemicals, and the apples are amazing)
-Meandering, antiquing, admiring the foliage, heading to farmers markets, and
…And who enjoy cooking, lounging and relaxing in a house big enough to accommodate everyone...and built well enough to *not* hear everyone.

It is a gourmet’s delight (cooking in it is a pleasure, and we have excellent appliances and cookware/bakeware (and yes, a KitchenAid and a Cuisinart).

It is a child’s delight, with incomparable spots for hide-and-seek and many games, toys and puzzles (grown-up games and puzzles, too). Because the house has two stairways, kids enjoy running loops, and one of the happiest sounds parents hear are the thundering steps of the children running around upstairs...while enjoying cocktails downstairs. The creek is also a favorite place for children, and the hill is great for sledding in the winter.

It is a refuge of quiet and serenity, surrounded by green, evocative of an earlier time. Never have we had a guest not specifically remark on how being here has made them feel relaxed, even after only one night.

Stargazers are in for a particular treat, because with our acreage comes great seclusion (no light pollution) and on clear nights, the viewing is unrivaled. (In the summer, the fireflies add to the magic. It is really spectacular.)

While the house has all the integrity and charm (and some of the idiosyncrasies) of a house built at the turn of the last century, it has seen substantial renovations. Let’s just say it’s been a labor of love, and all systems, hardware, and plumbing are current if not brand-new.

We hope you will stay in our home and create memories to last a lifetime. We cherish this house – it is a treasure – and we hope you will feel the same.
