Location: Millerton, New York
Built in 1840, this cheery Greek Revival, recently expanded, sits on 55 lightly wooded acres of meadows, orchards, and a pond in Millerton, a village in Dutchess County, New York. With over 4,000 square feet of living space, the home features period details including wide-plank floors, exposed antique beams in the kitchen, a formal sitting and dining room, lovely shuttered windows, and multiple fireplaces. A screened-in porch with brick fireplace and a greenhouse off the kitchen offer lovely indoor-outdoor opportunities.
On the second level are three spacious bedrooms and an office, as well as another screened-in porch (this time for sleeping) off the master suite, plus the laundry room. The finished attic floor above that accommodates two large rooms, which can be used as additional office or recreational space.
But the yellow-painted main house is just one of the Nature Conservatory-abutting property’s many facets. In addition to a wooden deck with gunite pool surrounded by gardens are a two-bedroom guesthouse situated beside the pond, a second guesthouse, a studio with an indoor lap pool, horse stalls, and another barn, this time converted into a garage.
Located at 145 Mill Road, the property is listed for $2,450,000.
