Hudson, N.Y.

18 Bed/14 Bath/400,000+ sqft
Offered by Lindsay Lebrecht, Copake Lake Realty, 518-325-9741

The Goodfarm, a private 100+-acre, gated estate is located just ten minutes from trendy Hudson, NY, known for its antique shops, art galleries and restaurants. From the restored 1840 main home to the diverse countryside of fields, woods, trails, paddocks, orchard, pond and meandering creek, this compound is the quintessential country property.

The centerpiece is the 1840 Center Hall Colonial, with a splash of Federal. This 7 BR, 5.5 BA home has been exquisitely modernized for today’s conveniences, while respecting the architecture and features of days gone by. The open kitchen/dining room/family room is surrounded by picture windows, framing the landscaped vistas. A wood-burning fireplace for those winter days adds to the ambiance.

The main level Master en-suite reflects today’s lifestyle choices, while the original dining and living rooms capture the more formal lifestyle of the era. The upper levels host six more bedrooms.
The Carriage House has been converted into two separate family-living spaces totaling 6 BR, 5 BA. The original hand-hewn beams remain. There is an exercise room that overlooks the fields and in-ground heated salt-system pool. The renovated “Barn” has two more guest bedrooms, massage room and a yoga/art studio with projector cinema.

Rounding out the living space are two staff apartments. Garages galore.
Located ten minutes to Hudson, NY and less than 1/2 hour to the Berkshires. It is approximately 40 minutes to Albany International Airport and ten minutes to a private air service. Convenient to Amtrak, too.
Looking for a family compound or group retreat? Please consider the Goodfarm, a piece of Hudson Valley heaven. Could be sold “turn-key”.
