This is No Ordinary Ranch in Dutchess County, NY, $869,900

dutchess county ranch

The exterior of this Dutchess County Ranch house only hints at its distinctive, 3,492-square-foot interior.

Situated just west of the Taconic State Parkway, this c.1952 Ranch comes with The Works, starting with the eye-catching double-hung doors opening into the living room sporting a custom mural (hand-painted by an Oscar-winning set designer, so says the listing), a wall of windows overlooking the in-ground pool, and white-washed wood floors.

Adjacent to the living is a splashy family/TV room with brick fireplace and French doors…

…which also adjoins to a formal dining with access to the side deck via double glass doors.

The cornerstone of these common areas is the kitchen, with a butcher block center island, stylish open shelves, six-burner range, and stainless refrigerator.

A master bedroom offers the ultimate in-home retreat from the stresses of being a human. Slide open the pocket doors to reveal a jetted soaking tub…

…and a glass-enclosed shower with two shower heads, as well as double vanities and skylights. We can feel the stress melting away already just looking at this spa-like bath, a feature we are looking for all this week on Upstater (check out this spa bath, and this one, both in Columbia County).

The other two bedrooms offer access onto the Brazilian hardwood side decks…

…and the patios and pool overlook the private pond – complete with fountain! The expansive 55-acre property also features a two-bedroom guest cottage with a fireplace and full kitchen.

Pleasant Valley, NY is located in central Dutchess County, minutes away from Innisfree Gardens, state parks, the Hudson River, and Millbrook Vineyards and Winery.
