You might find it a little too easy to shut out the world in this Stanfordville raised ranch on four acres of land. 

We’re not being overly-effusive when we call this property a “sanctuary.” In fact, it borders the Buttercup Farm Audubon Sanctuary in rural Dutchess County, NY, a 641-acre preserve where scores of native birds and other wildlife make their home. What better place to escape other people than to move next-door to an Audubon sanctuary?

You’ll find an inner sanctuary, too, within in the 1980s Ranch home. The ground-floor family room includes stylish tile floors, beamed ceilings, and bay windows to allow in a flood of natural light…

From there, take the fanciful spiral staircase fashioned of vintage mining equipment to the second floor kitchen, living room, and bedrooms…

…with plenty of its own natural light and large windows…

…plus access through sliding glass doors to a balcony overlooking the wooded yard…

…as does the master suite with vaulted ceilings and a spa-like private bath…

The 2,416-square-foot interior comes with three bedrooms plus two full baths total, and there’s even a workshop space down on the lower level so you can finally tackle all of those projects you’ve been putting off until you have more time to do them.

We suspect you’ll have plenty of time for such pursuits, as well as the ones that involve nothing more than watching the birds fly by.

The four-acre property sits at the end of a private driveway in total seclusion. Don’t worry, extroverts: Towns like Red Hook, Rhinebeck, Pine Plains, and Millerton are close enough by car.
