Far from the Madding Crowd.... Wouldn't you love to escape to your own retreat, tucked away where no-one knows you're there? Convenient to great restaurants but you might choose the great kitchen to explore your culinary prowess. Unusual, beautiful and with all the charm you can imagine plus integrity. Since buying, the owners have upgraded the bathrooms and replaced all the windows. Bring your guests here to enjoy the huge pond, s'mores around the fire pit or indulge in a fabulous meal in the exquisite dining room or on the ample deck. Magnificent and huge stone fireplace speaks to that indefinable quality we all search for - the warmth of home, of gatherings with friends. It speaks to peace and beauty in the country to awaken your spirit to a life enriching experience. 2 hrs to Manhattan. 30 minutes to skiing.
