Here’s What $19M Looks like in Rural Dutchess County

  |  September 19, 2018

Catch a glimpse at how the 1% might wile away their days in this Millbrook grand estate…

Look, it’s a 19-million-dollar property. No expense has been spared. It has everything you’d ever want, plus several dozen things you didn’t know you needed. Unattainable? Hell yeah. But that’s what this week is all about here on Upstater: Unattainable properties that will knock one’s socks off.

So, consider our socks knocked off by Lightning Tree Farm, a 150-year-old, 368.6-acre estate located in eastern Dutchess County. Cue the Spring movement from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons…

The 17,960-square-foot main house includes 9 bedrooms, 12 baths, children’s playroom with built-in stage, a home theater, wine cellar, dog room, flower-arranging room (see? We told you there’d be things you didn’t know you needed), and staff quarters. As opulent as this home appears from a distance, it’s even more so when you soak in the details.

Not surprisingly, there’s a whole lot more to this property than the magnificent main house. It’s also a fully-equipped equestrian center with 18-stall stable with carriage room and outdoor riding ring.

Ever fantasize about the pool you might have if money were no object? Oh, look! We found it!

Located 15 minutes from the New York/Connecticut border, and less than two hours from NYC. But who would want to go to some crowded, loud city when you could be here? Just land your chopper on the helipad and settle in for some fox hunting with the hounds.
