Amenities abound in this large resort-style country cottage, located on an historic Dutchess County property near the foothills of the Berkshires, 1 mile from the Metro North station, and a short 90 minutes from Manhattan. Tucked away on 4.3 acres of private land, the estate offers multiple opportunities for pleasure and relaxation: rolling lawns and gardens, a 40,000+ gallon in-ground saltwater swimming pool with pavilion, cabanas, multiple patios and firepits.
