A French Country Farmhouse in Red Hook for $825K

  |  December 20, 2022

We’re making a stop in Red Hook today, on our week’s tour of sweet ensuites.

This 2,692-square-foot farmhouse has a French Country flair, right down to its name…

Welcome to Soleil Levant.

The entry brings you a choice: You can turn right into this dining room with big, bright windows and Brazilian cherry flooring.

If you turn left, French doors will lead you into this snug office, with more of those rich floors and clean, white walls.

Continue past both into the sunny living room. A big picture window shows off stunning mountain views.

This fireplace has a dual persona. It’s rustic, with its floor-to-ceiling stone on the living room side.

And it’s elegant on the kitchen side (to the right in this photo). There’s more of that gorgeous flooring here, too, along with a big, built-in hutch with tons of storage. A large center island separates the kitchen from the breakfast area.

Granite tops the pickled-look cabinets (the house is not quite 20 years old; if the new owner considers this look to be a bit dated, they might want to invest in updated cabinets, though it’d be quite an investment).

A butler’s pantry is tucked in an alcove next to the kitchen.

Four bedrooms are upstairs. The primary is fully carpeted in beige, with a wall color to match. It’s got a gas fireplace, two walk-in closets, a tray ceiling, and a ceiling fan.

A well-maintained ensuite has a large, double-sink vanity and a jetted tub. There’s also a glass-doored, walk-in shower.

The other bedrooms are all fully carpeted, as well. This one is big enough for a bevy of antiques.

This one is a bit more spare, and it’s painted a soft blue.

This bedroom is decorated like a French Provincial dream. But the gray walls and neutral carpeting allow for an easy transition for the new owner.

All three secondary bedrooms share this double-vanity full bath. The toilet and tub/shower are separate from the granite-topped sinks.

This little carpeted nook is tucked upstairs, too, with the oval window that’s visible from the front elevation of the house. The basement level of the house has a full bath and lots of storage, as well as a walkout to the yard, according to the listing.

A large rear deck offers more pretty mountain views. The house is on four acres and is five minutes to the Taconic State Parkway; 10 minutes to the village of Red Hook; 15 minutes to Hudson; and 22 minutes to the Amtrak station.
