History is a continuum and, in some places, more strongly felt than others. The siren call to participate can be answered HERE. The principal residence of a country estate, now on the National Register of Historical Places, the Carvey-Gatfield house, is named after two successive owners, and located outside the village of Cornwall on Hudson, just 5 miles from West Point, an area in the Hudson Valley of enormous historical repute. Approach the home by passing your large 18th century barn, gardens, and park-like lawn. Inside, you will find that the home has been updated with a careful eye, creating modern convenience but keeping the historical character. A renovated eat-in country kitchen with a fireplace, second kitchen area behind, and a nearby patio is a perfect spot to cook and entertain. Next move up the stairs to discover a formal dining room and large living room, both with beautiful pocket doors and fireplaces. Above, you will find three bedrooms, the largest of which with its own fireplace, and a carefully updated hall bathroom. Finally, on the last level is your enormous master suite, with two walk-in closets, pellet stove, soaring ceilings with sky lights, and chic, bright bathroom. Nearby are Storm King Art Center, charming downtown Cornwall, and some of the best hiking that you will find in New York. The home's post-revolutionary construction in the early days of the republic, remains intact. The barn predates the house by as much as a century and can be used for parking, storage, and a workshop. There are two charming, rentable cottages on the property. A true estate overflowing with opportunity and awash in history. Wouldn't you like to feel the connection and be a part of it?
