This solidly built, beautifully proportioned, spacious and classic country house dates from the end of the 19th century. It is ideally situated near a high point at the center of one of fashionable Quaker Hill's premiere estate areas, with sweeping western and southern vistas of rural Quaker Hill and far beyond, to the Shawangunk Mountains 40 miles away (west of the Hudson River). This is among the most spectacular views on Quaker Hill. The house is set on one acre with 7 additional acres available. The first floor of the home has an entry hall; front sitting room/piano room; extra-large living room with fireplace and commanding views to south and west; a perfectly-proportioned formal dining room that features a fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows looking onto the incredible view; a playroom or office, also with a fireplace; a modern, spacious and bright kitchen; a powder room; and an attached greenhouse. The second floor family quarters consist of a master suite and an additional three bedrooms with two additional full bathrooms. There is a finished attic with additional rooms - potential expansion space that can be fully closed off when not in use. The front grounds feature mature trees, part of a striking alley of maples planted along Old Quaker Hill Road a century ago. A paved summer terrace is outside on the south side of the house, adjacent to the living and dining rooms. For buyers who value extraordinary views, in close proximity (less than two hours) to New York City, this house is virtually unique. This home is also available with an additional 7 acres for $850,000.
