THE STORY OF A STONE HOUSE
Your Gateway to Hudson Valley History and natural beauty in a Colonial Stone House appointed with comfortable modern conveniences.
This 300-year-old house was fully restored with lots of love and attention to the details that keep its historic integrity.
The house was built by a cattle farmer with a lot of land. He was quite influential in the region. The barns surrounding the house were built first and later he started to build the stone-house, extending the work over the years. Later on, the house was used as an Inn, before it was converted to a one family home.
We restored 3 of the fire-places on the ground floor and installed in an energy efficient heating and cooling system (heat pumps) to be as environmentally friendly as possible. We renovated the house with a lot of love and filled it with old original and very modern touches.
Behind the house with a panoramic view of the Catskills Range, is our Saltwater swimming pool with a patio and sun-chairs for relaxing, and a fully functioning BBQ gas grill.
Guests wander the 6 acres of land, which includes 2 barns. At the far end, Esopus Creek winds through the adjacent nature preserve onto the property. It's incredible to hang out on the greek, fish or kayak.
Our comfortably spacious kitchen is filled with modern conveniences including a 6-burner Viking range..
The living room has a working fireplace and a " Vico Magistretti for Cassina” leather sofa. There’s plenty of room to relax, and a video projector with a pull down screen for your own movie nights.
The dining room sits 14 people for some great dinner parties and festivities on a beautiful maple “Pace” dining table.
The sun room’s vintage wood table seats 12 for a leisurely lunch. Ceiling fans provide a nice breeze in summer.
