A Country Place

An extraordinary country estate with pool and cottage hidden from view off mid country Lake Avenue. Set on 5.75 acres of established and memorable gardens the three story brick and clapboard main house is impressive upon approach at the end of a long, gated front drive. Notably, bordering lawns are protected in back by 77 acres of woodland. The owner spent a lifetime integrating the interior rooms with the surrounding exterior features of magical pathways and terraces, trimmed with colorful perennials, sculpted hedges and towering trees . The front entrance opens to a grand hall with high ceiling and a gracious low-rising staircase. Here, entertaining begins as this hall opensopens to the living room with paneled walls marble fireplace, and French doors, plus a step-down lounge beyond with vaulted, beamed ceiling, and stone fireplace. This lounge and a solarium at the end of the front hall both open to a covered terrace and gardens beyond. Experience the romance of a country dining room with hand-painted Hudson River murals, beamed ceiling and rustic fireplace. Prepping for such gatherings is easy with the fully outfitted butler's pantry and an updated kitchen. An octagonal breakfast room overlooks a koi pond and gardens an easy solution for informal dining. Upstairs, a wide landing leads to a south-facing master suite with sitting room. Three large bedrooms, a nursery, plus two small rooms or offices (conveniently located up the back staircase) comprise the remaining second floor rooms. An expanded third floor family room/playroom and adjacent bedroom suite provides great space for long-term guests or visiting family. The two bedroom guest cottage with charming terraces and balconies is proximate, but with private gardens and lawns, extending north into a separately-deeded lot. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire a truly remarkable estate with memorable gardens and grounds. Whimsical features inside and out make this unique property enjoyable
