Beautifully sited on a tranquil knoll in the heart of Dutchess County horse and working farms, this replica of a famous sea captain’s house was originally designed by Gregory Purcell, a Portsmouth mariner, who built his home in 1758 in Portsmouth, NH. Located on a lovely rural country road, yet minutes to the village of Millbrook and the hamlet of Clinton Corners, the approach to this home is impressive, greeting you with gated stone pillars and a long private drive that winds up to the home. The elegant center hall colonial has an easy flow floor plan with light-filled rooms and wood flooring throughout. Featured on the first floor are three fireplaces – one in the living room, one in the stately dining room, and one large stone fireplace in the great room. The great room also features custom built-in book shelves with storage and sliding French doors that lead to the bluestone terrace. The gourmet kitchen has two convection ovens, a center island perfect for entertaining, two dishwashers, and glass doors from the dine-in area viewing the pastoral landscape. Rounding out the first floor are two half baths, mud-room and generous closets and custom cabinetry. Upstairs, the spacious primary suite has a sitting area and dressing room with four huge closets, and a shower bath suite. Three more bedrooms are of generous size and also equipped with good closet space and a full bath with washer and dryer. The lower (basement) level is finished with a media room, office and temperature-controlled wine cellar. The attic is huge and can be finished if desired. The landscaped grounds have wide open views, and is planted for continual flowering. A private, 30′ x 18′ heated pool has plenty of outdoor patio space for entertaining. There are two outbuildings – a two-bay garage and a storage barn. There is a whole-house, automatic flip generator, new fireplace liner, new pool liner, and updated mechanics. Convenient to the Taconic State Parkway and all the Hudson Valley has to offer, this gracious home is perfect for entertaining, family fun, close to ski areas, hiking, and biking.
