If 11.6 acres isn’t enough for you, take comfort in the fact that this Dutchess County raised Ranch abuts protected land.
The Buttercup Farm Audubon Sanctuary’s main denizens consist of the feathery kind, thanks to a bird-friendly mix of marshy, flooded woodlands and open grasslands. In fact, over 80 species bird call Buttercup Farm home, like blue herons, bobolinks, woodcocks, red-tailed hawks, American kestrels, and pileated woodpeckers, just to name a few. Now, you can cozy right up next to all of your fine feathered friends in a well-kept, three-bedroom Ranch house situated on the border of the sanctuary.
When you’re not communing with your avian cohorts, you can take shelter within its 1,344-square-foot interior, complete with large windows, French doors, and a mix of tile and hardwood flooring…
…as well as as a stainless-steel-equipped kitchen with center island, lots of hip, open storage, and double glass doors that open onto the exterior deck.
Furthermore, this property comes with two bonuses: Two light-filled art studios, one of which is housed within this refurbished barn. Don’t need two art studios? Transform them into rentals or guest accommodations.
Explore the enchanted, woodsy landscape of this property via footpaths, bridges, and boardwalks…
…which also run along the property’s idyllic stream. Two private ponds round out this land’s offerings.
From here, both the villages of Pine Plains and Millbrook are within a ten minutes’ drive, and a half-hour’s drive is all it takes to get to the Poughkeepsie Metro-North station.
