“Happy Brook Farm,” a classic Woodstock Estate

  |  September 15, 2014

Classic Woodstock Estate circa 1930 remains the perfect environment to share with family, friends and business acquaintances. There are meadow and mountain views with blossoming apple, pear and dogwood trees for a wonderful spring visual and an olfactory bounty. Birds and wildflowers abound. A solid stone and cedar 5000 SF main house, a 2 BR stone guest cottage and a 2 BR carriage house all sit amid 16 acres which contain a pool, barbecue area, rock garden, gazebo and pond.

Cross the flagstone patio to the main house and enter into a flagstone entrance hall with 2 coat closets and powder room. The flagstone continues into a study with butternut paneling and half bath and further on into the large dining room that can seat nearly 20 and opens to an equally large dining deck. The huge 36 x33 foot living room has a large bluestone fireplace and balconied cathedral ceiling. The post and beam kitchen has it’s own informal dining space with fireplace. The kitchen opens to a 2 story greenhouse/solarium – perfect for growing herbs or for an artist studio. A long hall leads to a separate wing where a library with beautiful stained-glass doors allows for a wonderful area to read or meditate. Further down the hall are 2 bedrooms and a master suite, each with its own private bath and deck. There’s a double bedroom in the basement with 2 full baths, laundry and half bath. Great for a live-in housekeeper. The 2 bedroom stone guest house with slate roof has an Asian theme. The kitchen has butternut cabinets and stainless steel appliances. The den is the showcase with wonderful wood carvings and details. The large LR has lots of light and is now used as a game room. The carriage house has a 3 car garage with an attached 2 BR apartment and a greenhouse. Sunbathe around or swim in the huge pool with panoramic views of mountains and the extensive grounds. There’s a barn for your farm animals and a paddock for your horses. This idyllic estate is one of Woodstock’s most unique properties, with a colorful history of artists, musicians, writers…peace and love – everything that the name Woodstock embodies.
