On rare occasions you find a property that is so breathtaking and distinctive that all you can say is, “Wow!”
This 39.7-acre estate with it’s Adirondack Park views, 2800 sq. ft. modern farmhouse, 1800’s barn, horse pasture and paddock, two ponds and large swimming pool is in a class of its own.
The property is ideally situated within the highly rated Dolgeville School District and couldn’t be more convenient with St.Johnsville, Dolgeville or Little Falls from 6 to 15 minutes away.
From the moment you turn off NY-331 and enter the long driveway, you start to see the distinguishing value of this property. One of the first things you notice is the beautifully manicured front yard with a tall sugar-maple tree and the large 1800s barn with it’s spacious hobby/work area with power, propane heat, a bathroom and septic system.
Next to the barn is a fenced-in 2.5 acre pasture, paddock and 3-stall heated row barn…just waiting for your horses.
Beyond the barn you can get a glimpse of the incredible Adirondack views surrounding the property and the Northern Spy apple orchard near two spring-fed ponds. One can easily imagine the homeowners story of thunderstorms rolling in from the west across the ponds leaving exquisite rainbows of colors behind.
Over the past few years, the ponds have been home to four mating Canada geese that return in the early spring to nest. During the early evening hours of the summer you can see the adult geese training the gaggle of young goslings from the perfect vantage point…the beautiful backyard swimming pool. This rectangular shaped pool has everything you would want for outdoor fun including a pool cover, slide, cabana and propane heater to extend the season.
And then there’s the modern farmhouse built in 1994!
Erase any preconceived notion you may have about farmhouses. The pristine colors, straight lines and open floorpan of this modern farmhouse creates a sophisticated, serene sanctuary unlike anything you are likely to see in most rural homes. The attention to even the smallest of details in this 2,800 sq. ft., 3 bedrooms/3 baths house is pure perfection.
When it comes to country hospitality you won’t find a setting more inviting than this home’s sweeping rocking chair front porch. This covered porch gracefully wraps around the home to create an airy side-porch with easy access to the kitchen and convenient 1/2 bath. It’s the perfect shady spot to enjoy a summer afternoon with a pitcher of iced tea and good friends.
Inside this energy efficient home you’ll find many recent upgrades including a new roof in 2013 and painting and carpeting updates that were completed over the last couple of years.
The open eat-in kitchen is absolutely stunning with its farmhouse-style lighting fixtures, crisp white cabinets, Corian countertops, laminate wood floors and stainless steel double sink. The complementing stainless and black appliances including a Whirlpool 5-burner gas stove, Whirlpool refrigerator and Fridgedare dishwasher complete the rustic yet sophisticated modern farmhouse style.
Connected to the kitchen is a tranquil formal dining room with breathtaking views of the ponds and distant Adirondack mountains. A large living room at the front of the house is also connected to this space creating the perfect flow for easy entertaining.
At the opposite side of the entryway is a cozy, casual family room with a corner hearth stove adding both ambience and warmth to cold winter days.
Upstairs you’ll find the same attention to modern farmhouse details and a pristine color palette. A particular highlight in the upstairs landing is a beautiful mountain silhouette mural painted using the same gray wall colors that were used throughout the house.
The three bedrooms and two baths on this level are spacious with lots of natural light streaming into the rooms and spectacular views of the acreage from every window. The master suite is particularly well designed with a large walk-in closet, a two-sink vanity, waterproof laminate wood plank flooring, a garden tub and gorgeous views from the bathroom window.
