Sometimes a location is preordained, set perfectly amidst the fields, vistas gushing in every direction... and sometimes a house is built in just such a spot in just such a way as to pay homage while providing something more.
The grounds are varied and beautiful. Simple fields full of simple wild flowers and broken by simple tree lines, 28 acres in all. A pond, pure and clean and sitting in a spot to take in the view. Two patios surrounded by perennials provide plenty of capacity for play.
The house resembles something one might find in the French countryside. Come in through the front entry into a grand hallway. A library off to your right, a living room off to your left are both grandly scaled with vaulted ceilings. The great room, anchored with a fireplace, with French doors and windows lets the light in and frames the view. A formal dining room, comfortably ensconced between the great room and kitchen, drinks in the sunsets over the Spencertown hills. The kitchen is a study in functional style. Custom cabinetry, gourmet appliances and granite counters for the foodie in all of us. A mudroom off the kitchen leads to the garage. The first floor master is luxury compliments of the view. Down stairs you'll find more bedrooms and baths, including a lovely guest suite than leads out to one of the patios and gardens.
