A seven acre, superbly maintained pond is the centerpiece of this singular property. It is encircled on one side by woods and open on the other to the house and an inviting deck for sunning, dining, and diving. Bull Run, surrounded by the beauty of the Hudson Valley, boasts country comfort and deep history. The original small section of the house was built almost three decades before the Declaration of Independence was composed. The stone terraces, wide-board floors, casement windows, and fireplaces (one dating to 1747) are all imbued with a sense of time gone by, while central air, generator, and countless other amenities make contemporary living easy. While the historic section of Bull Run is typical of its era ‘cozy and intimate’, the more modern sections are larger and offer gracious, open rooms, ample light, and elegance. There are four living spaces in the main house, including a beautifully proportioned formal living room, a large informal family room, an office/den, and a sitting room. The kitchen, with its cunning window seats and Dutch door, serves a light-infused formal dining room. There are four bedrooms, and three and a half baths, including a primary bedroom suite with bath and sitting/dressing room, and a balcony overlooking the gardens. Tucked away from the house, a recently renovated one-bedroom cottage has its own garage and fenced garden. Bull Run’s 24 acres incorporate four separate parcels, removing any future need to subdivide. Boasting several excellent spots to build, one has its own road access and hillside views of the valley and pond. 24-48 HOUR NOTICE REQUIRED FOR ACCOMPANIED SHOWINGS.
