281 Old Route 82 • Taghkanic
A classic country farmhouse built in the 19th century with pride and skill, this post-and-beam structure has lasted for generations and now welcomes a new steward into its solid embrace.
Once owned and decorated by Peggy and David Rockefeller, the lovely spaces include high-ceilinged parlors filled with natural light, each with a wood-burning fireplaces. Updated but retaining Peggy Rockefeller's soft palette of colors on the walls and trim, and high-gloss teal floors. Real brass knobs and key plates on every paneled door and a chic and subtle sense of modernism pervades throughout the house.
Views across forever-protected lands, including your own 56 acres bisected by the rushing Taghkanic Creek, create a permanent sense of space and former times that cannot easily be bought in today’s market.
12 minutes to Hudson and Amtrak; five minutes to the Taconic Parkway and just two hours to NYC.
The house is also available on 86 acres at $1,150K.
