Looking for something in the higher end of the market? You won’t lack for options casting your gaze toward Rhinebeck. In fact, there are a couple dozen properties listed at a million and above, including this c.1800 mansion on ten acres of land.
It didn’t used to be a mansion, however. This exceptional house started out as a carriage barn and was painstakingly transformed into a 6700 square foot country estate with soaring ceilings, chestnut beams and framing, and Versailles parquet flooring throughout. There are 5 bedrooms + 3.5 baths, which puts it in a good position to serve as a small inn. Or, you could keep that Italianate courtyard complete with inviting pool all to yourself and the all the friends you’ll make when they find out you live here.
Located a stone’s throw from the Hudson River, about 10 minutes south of Rhinebeck village. Close to the Rhinecliff train station, but why would you ever want to leave?
