Do we even need to go into why we love this c.1890 castle-esque hilltop home in the Dutchess County hamlet of Stanfordville? Behold its majestic interior starting with the dramatic entrance complete with sweeping staircase and checked marble floor. You’ll never lack for space here with nearly 4000 square feet, 3 beds/2.5 baths, neck-craneable ceilings, and an additional 5 acres of land. Fun fact: The house was originally built in Columbia County, north of Dutchess, but was relocated to its current location.
It’s got all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a country château with a European sense of luxury, including chandeliers, a library, fireplaces, contemporary kitchen…we could go all day. Among the property’s impressive list of features is “yoga studio.” Where are the pictures of that?
You can almost hear the hounds barking from this morning’s fox hunt without having to leave the confines of the Hudson Valley.
