Highlands is a singular lilac-stone house found at the end of an extensive scenic drive. It is located on more than 102 private acres atop Chestnut Ridge, an elevation of 1200 feet. Designed by architect Dan Bucsescu, Highlands embodies the fundamental principles of Sir Edwin Lutyens and Rennie Mackintosh in its strong axes, seamless exchange of indoor and exterior spaces, and purposeful use of glass. The interior presents exquisite artisanal wood and stone craftsmanship throughout, includes four bedrooms, four bathrooms, library, paneled dining-room, winter Conservatory, media-room, fireplaces, wood-burning stoves, and charming nooks everywhere. The 'Barn' has an apartment above and adjacent room to receive a yoga studio or private gym. There are garages for 3 cars. An axis of the house extends outside and into a formal garden, framed by a stone wall and by manicured privet hedges. House and Barn exceed 5500 sq. feet of habitable space, and the Conservatory may be readily modified and enlarged for any purpose. Beyond the gardens, the property rolls onto a distant horizon, providing pastoral views from even within the house across miles of Hudson Valley hills. On the property is a swimming pool encompassed by a walled garden and, of course, an Enchanted Meadow. The village of Millbrook is but 10 minutes away, as is a train station, and the area is well known for its extensive educational opportunities for children. 24 hours required for accompanied showings.
