A substantial equestrian property encompassing more than 466 acres in the heart of Dutchess County is on the market for $15 million. The unparalleled offering had previously been on the market as much as $23.3 million in 2015. Secluded on the estate at the end of a long driveway is the owner’s residence overlooking a spring fed lake and stroll gardens. The paved entry courtyard is graced on either side by colonnaded porticos leading to a two-bedroom guest house on one side and staff apartment and garages on the opposite side. The main entrance hall to the three-storey house, with its high domed ceiling, is complimented by an instant view of the lake seen through the house as the front door opens. The 18,000 square foot Georgian-style main house was designed by renowned architect Boris Baranovich and built in 1987 with large rooms, high ceilings and detailed millwork adding to its grandeur.
Wood burning fireplaces in the living room, dining room, chestnut panelled library and sitting room add to the atmosphere. Two dramatic curved staircases link the floors as well as a passenger elevator from the lower level to the top floor. There are a total of eight bedrooms, nine full and one half bathrooms throughout.
