Three houses! One special light filled farmhouse which has been lovingly restored by the current owner who also renovated the two guest houses here you have the three dwellings fusing a country lifestyle with a city sophistication. The extensive restorations show an eye for creating a peaceful and tasteful living experience all just a short drive to the varied opportunities thriving throughout the hudson valley. The divine sound of the waterfall across from house permeates property & home with its subtle sounds throughout most of the year. Additionally, there is the bonus of a 4th structure - an iconic red barn/garage & work room. Three bedrooms in main house - one each in two cottages. One & a half bathrooms in main house, full baths in each gust cottage. The two guest houses complete the property allowing for multiple dwelling options- all three homes have been cared for & all have separate electric meters for guest or rental use. The farmhouse is shaded by a 200 year old maple tree that is breathtaking to behold & the gardens have been developed by rhinebecks' phantom gardener. They were created to provide color & inspiration and easy care throughout the three growing seasons & who will not love the sound of the waterfall through their open bedroom window at night as one drifts off to sleep. The property extends across ralph vedder rd to encompass several hundred feet of the stream. Step inside the house to discover this gracious country home! Owned by a restaurateur, you'll feel the inspiration of multiple pleasing aesthetics and a simple but totally easy kitchen to both work or entertain in. Custom maple cabinetry, statuary marble counters, a viking range & miele dishwasher complete the kitchen. The living room & family area say "country comfort" and are appealing with their soft yet natural inspired choice of colors & the polished wood flooring which runs throughout the house. A ground floor bedroom opens directly to the blue-stone patio which is private and a wonderful addition to the home whether for dining or, simply enjoying the environment as a quiet spot for reading or an evening cocktail. Two upstairs bedrooms are bright and comfortable with the sound of the waterfall magically serenading one through open windows. And, what a bathroom! The size of a bedroom, it offers high-ceilings and beautiful light promoting a sense of spacious well being. Waterworks fixtures have been used for the sink & soaking tub sited dramatically below the chandelier- there is a separate large shower as well. Both guest houses have a separate bedroom and kitchen. One finds bonus space in the red barn/garage & workshop perfect for two cars, storage, a workroom or studio, and a chicken coop too! A large sunny fenced organic veggie/herb, flower and berry garden await either the weekend gardener or a full time serious 'raise your own' garden. There are flowing lawns around the houses & a lovely meadow extending into the woods providing plenty of room to add a pool in the future. The actual waterfall is not located on the property but just above it contributing greatly to the ambiance! The stream does run along one boundary of the property even though across the street.
