Historic Birchwood, built in 1840, is an inviting Hudson Valley family compound. It is a unique confluence of Dutch Colonial and Mission Bungalow architectural styles, with complementary Japanesque influences. The stylish interior features a living room and adjoining glass-walled gathering room, both with indiginous stone-faced wood-burning fireplaces. There's a sleek and spacious eat-in-kitchen, and a separate dining room with fireplace. The luxurious master bedroom has an ensuite bath, and there are 2 guest bedrooms providing plenty of comfort for family & friends. A picturesque stone and wood 2 BR/1 BA carriage house is a highlight of the property, and the perfect live/work space or rental. The wraparound bluestone patio & iconic front porch are surrounded by lushly planted grounds with perennial beds, specimen trees, and the mature silver birches that give the property its name. Luxurious amenities include a 1500 bottle wine cellar, a Har-Tru tennis court, and central A/C. A truly beautiful property in all aspects and in all seasons.
