335 Carpenter Hill Road, Stanfordville, NY 12581
Highcroft is a gorgeous property with all the attributes you would expect from an outstanding country estate...a safe, secure and secluded sanctuary that provides the discerning buyer with an opportunity for a complete change in lifestyle. Cradled in the center of a splendid 100-acre haven in Northern Dutchess County, Highcroft is a serene compound, making it the perfect answer to the family seeking to retreat from life in the City. The main house is built for comfort and luxury. There is a gracious ground-floor master suite with two fireplaces, dressing rooms, a large covered stone porch and an outdoor shower. Two large ground-floor offices, compete with high-speed communications, make it easy to work from home. There are four additional bedrooms upstairs, two of them ensuite. The kitchen, pantries and dining areas adjoin a library and handsome sitting room. There is also a three-bedroom guest house for extended family, as well as an apartment for an optional caretaker, adjacent to a King Construction barn. While designed with horses in mind, all facilities are built to a standard that they can be repurposed as recreational spaces, gym, home theatre or recording studios. Highcroft is also beautifully situated. It is reached by a long drive framed by a stream, ornamental cherry trees and mature sugar maples. There are panoramic vistas of the mountains, a pond and a lawn with stone walls and plantings, including hedges, peonies, perennial and vegetable gardens. The property is crossed by stone walls and grassy trails suitable for walking, riding and winter sports. A bluestone heated pool with pergola adjoins park-like land. The property exudes self-sufficiency, with a chicken coop, working beehives, resident ducks, a stocked pond and a fruit orchard. Highcroft is close to some of the East Coast's best boarding and day schools, as well as several ski resorts. It's simply perfect for a buyer seeking safety, security, and a supremely comfortable country life. 48 hours required for accompanied showings.
