Immaculate Contemporary with Epic Pastoral Views

This completely renovated contemporary farmhouse on one of the best sites in the county with breathtaking and protected views overlooking the Shekomeko Valley is now available for sale.  Located off a private country road and surrounded by conservation land, this home is the perfect tranquil country retreat.   Enter through the foyer/library to the airy and light-filled common spaces on the first floor that revolves around a floating 2-sided fireplace and open up to a bank of floor-to-ceiling windows with pastoral views.  A bluestone patio runs the length of the house. The kitchen is well-appointed with state-of-the-art appliances, soapstone countertops, a Plain English cabinet system, and a walk-in pantry.  A media room, main floor primary bedroom with ensuite bath, and an oversized mudroom complete the main level.  The second floor boasts an additional primary bedroom with an ensuite bath as well as 3 additional bedrooms and a 1200 square foot porch.  The heated gunite pool is expertly integrated into the landscape and the Shekomeko creek runs through the property.  This private oasis is minutes away from the heart of Millerton, N.Y. and the Wassaic MetroNorth train station, and is close to Salisbury and Sharon, Conn., as well as the area’s best prep schools.
