Enjoy serenity in this masterfully designed country escape hidden in the rolling hills of Hyde Park. This tranquil home offers estate style living on 10+ acres overlooking a beautiful private pond. From the moment you walk through the front door, the craftsmanship is on display with elegant woodworking throughout. The expansive open concept design flows beautifully between the kitchen, dining room, and family room, featuring panoramic views and cathedral ceilings. In the cold of the winter you can warm yourself by the wood burning fireplace, or enjoy a soak in the master bathroom jacuzzi. During the warmer months you can relax or entertain company on the spacious walkout deck and patio. Enjoy privacy in the fully finished basement with radiant heat that acts as a second home. With 9' ceilings, a full kitchen, bedroom, and patio walkout, this truly is independent living. This bucolic retreat is just minutes from shopping and restaurants, with the Culinary Institute of America and the village of Rhinebeck just down the road. In addition, this home is conveniently accessible by all major commuter routes, such as Poughkeepsie Station and the Taconic State Parkway. Additional features of the home include a first floor office and second floor den, as well as multiple sheds for storage on the property. Not to be lost amongst the beauty of the house are the meticulously kept mechanicals that run the home. A brand new, high efficiency gas boiler, a chlorination pill drop water filtration system, and a 15 kWh automatic backup generator are all some of the items used to run the home.
