Whether as a weekend escape or a year-round home, this country estate built in three years (1997 to 1999) is the ideal balance of rustic charm and luxurious appointments. Wide plank reclaimed wood floors, Douglas fir truss beams reclaimed from a St. Lawrence shipping dock, and fieldstone stanchions connect the home to the natural landscape. “It is a true sanctuary—a one-of-a-kind home,” says Kim Arenas, real estate broker at Compass.
A private master bedroom suite has a fireplace and terrace. Vaulted bright and open living space provides lots of room for family and friends to gather. “The wow space in my opinion is the kitchen/family room area with extraordinary beamed ceilings, fireplace, doors to outside and gorgeous windows,” says Arenas. A wine cellar, gym, pool and tennis court and guest cottage are included in the design by world-class architect Boris Pogacnik and crafted by Dan Ranneklev.
