49 Old Kings Highway Stone Ridge NY | Asking $2,250,000 | Halter Associates Realty
Welcome to 49 Old Kings Highway. Sited on 125 acres with panoramic views of mountains and meadows, this stunning cut-stone colonial home boasts many original features, a grand addition, and incomparable acreage. The entire parcel is in the Rondout Esopus Land Conservancy, thus ensuring that this farm, located in the Rest Plaus Historic District, will retain its bucolic character. Enjoy the extra benefit of an agricultural exemption while watching cows graze and fields being hayed! The land could easily support any kind of micro-farming or livestock endeavor and is zoned to allow that.
Endless memories will be made in this grand gourmet country kitchen! Features include soaring vaulted ceilings, custom cabinets and a center island, stainless appliances, a wine cooler, and a Wolf 48-inch double-oven, six-burner stove. Not to mention the Stereo speakers and ample storage to round out what we think is the perfect kitchen! Multiple French doors lead onto a wrap-around deck allowing the vistas of the pond, gardens, farmland, meadows, woodlands and sky to be welcomed in.
This stately home has been expertly remodeled, including restored wide-board floors and Venetian plaster walls–the thick stone walls make this home a peaceful sanctuary. The large, south-facing living room with deep-set windows has an oversized hearth, beamed ceiling and wood-burning stove insert. Another large room in the “stone” house has been used as a bedroom and media room. The three bedrooms are on the second floor where you’ll find abundant windows, original floors and many period details including an original hearth. With 3600 square feet, there is plenty of room to spread out and enjoy multiple cozy spaces including two home offices.
The 125 acres include two adjoining parcels of 101 and 24 acres respectively with endless possibilities, and, there are ample, multilevel, bluestone patios with breathtaking vistas. The pond, garden, mini-orchard and barn complete this private oasis.
Does farming interest you? You’re all set. The barn can house up to three vehicles or tractor-farm implements. There is an ample, recently refurbished open lean-to for exterior workshop and storage or farm use. A smaller barn has been made structurally sound and requires exterior coverage. And after a long day of work, light a fire, pull up your feet and revel at the land before you.
With close proximity to Westwind and Stone Ridge Orchards, Arrowood Brewery, Inness Golf resort, local apple farms and ski resorts, you’ll have many options for year-round activities.
