145 Ridgeview Road, Kerhonkson, NY 12446
RARE STORYBOOK FARMHOUSE. Pride of ownership evident. Complete privacy on 20 acres, with large deep pond and mature landscaping that would make any experienced avid gardener envious. A warm and inviting farmhouse with ample size, 4 bedrooms and 4 full baths, the home was completely restored by multiple fine home builders, designers, and restoration specialists, something significant done virtually every year over the past 20 years. To give you an idea, aside from a complete interior gut renovation in 2003, a new 50 year roof in 2012, bluestone patios, plus pool and pool house in 2009, extensive landscaping, plus deer and other custom cedar fencing were done, and most recently insulation improvements, interior/exterior painting, tree work/pruning, stone work and more. This is exactly the type of home that you rarely come across, one that has the character and charm of the distant past but has also been lovingly maintained and improved in a careful way that doesn't leave endless projects and upkeep that often become a burden and headache. Here, you get the best of both worlds, the enchanting 1800's home with today's important features and benefits complete with improvements designed for longevity. A picturesque setting from every angle, whether it's from the pool, patios or pond, there's a postcard photo at nearly every turn. Inside you'll find a great floor plan with plenty of room for guests, separate dedicated spaces for remote working, and plenty of living/entertaining space for friends and family. Multiple living areas provide room for families to separate or come together as needed. Full basement with excellent storage for bikes and kayaks. There's room for wine storage as well. An excellent option for extended families, small groups, but still cozy enough for 1-2 people to enjoy it all. Long hot summers are now a breeze with the inground pool and outdoor shower. Children will remember the fun times they had there and other guests may not want to leave. When other old homes hold secrets of past neglect, this one will without a doubt leave you feeling confident you've found the one. Nearby to fan favorite places like Arrowood, Westwind, Ravenwood, Rough Cut Brewery, Innes, The Accord Market, Saunderskill and Kelder's Farms. And that's just within 5 minutes or so. Further but still close are the ever popular hamlets and towns of Stone Ridge, High Falls, Rosendale, and New Paltz. Woodstock and historic uptown Kingston are also within striking distance. Explore thousands of protected acres within the Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park. Perfect vacation rental. Easy, private, peaceful and ready for summer enjoyment.
