It's all about the view! Privately set upon the hilltops in Ancram rests this European style farmhouse on 65 plus acres. One approaches a long private drive meandering past open agricultural fields and rolling meadows bringing you to a spectacular clearing where serenity and sweeping views of valleys and the Berkshire Mountains await from sunrise to sunset. Built in 1991 and expanded in 2004, the cedar and stone home beautifully blends 19th century materials like reclaimed beams, shutters and iron hinges with 21st century conveniences such as heated slate floors, top-of-the-line appliances, new mechanicals, copper roof and a new shake roof. Upon entry one is welcomed into a large sun filled foyer, with two bedrooms, Jack and Jill bath and laundry room off the main entry level. From there, one steps up to a hall leading to a cozy office space and half bath then proceeds to the spectacular 50' x 20' great room, its loft-like feel includes 18' beamed ceiling and stone fireplace. The open and flexible floorplan is perfect for entertaining. Covered porch and patios flank both side of the great room, allowing one to dine al fresco while enjoying the spectacular views. The second floor offers another office, full bath, and a full primary suite with expansive lounge and living space, private primary bedroom and bath. Make your way outside to endless rolling hills, patios, firepit, and the 60' x 20' gunite pool and cabana with views that takes ones breath away. The home is conveniently located within a short drive to the charming town of Pine Plains, Millerton, Hudson and Rhinebeck. Two hours from NYC.
