Property Description

SILVERBROOK FARM: There has been a house on this property since the first cart tracks were forged on the old Indian paths in the latter part of the 17th Century. The current house, a Federal gem, was constructed in the early 19th Century according to markings by the wood pegs in the roof braces. Remodeled in the latter part of the Victorian era, the Federal simplicity was replaced with elegant Victorian porches and architectural detail. The floor to ceiling windows and French doors allow the interiors to be flooded with light. It was during the same period that the deep cove moldings in the downstairs reception rooms were added, along with the Renaissance style mantle in the living room. The room proportions are perfect and elegant, delightfully detailed, with high ceilings and 21st entry accent lighting. The new (current) owners careful restoration of the house has happily preserved the vintage feeling. The interior has been immaculately maintained and wonderfully fashioned. While updating the home for 21st century use and adding enhancements such as antique Spanish tile throughout. The integrity of the home has been respected and restored to its original glory observed the late John Foreman, an historian and commentator on architecturally significant houses in the Millbrook area and author of the book 'Old Houses in Millbrook.' (The full history of the house is described in an article in The Millbrook Round Table from 2010. ) The 5200 sq. ft. home sits at the end of a tree lined driveway on 53+ acres of land consisting of rolling fields, fenced paddocks and charming gardens. A trout stream runs along the western end of the property. Although the home has a long history as a horse property the facilities are those of a manor house. In the period barn are 6 large stalls. In the carriage house there are 5 more. Additional accommodations, featuring a one-bedroom apartment and a separate three bedroom house are situated well away from the house can be used as rental income or guest accommodations. The location at the gateway to the historic Village of Millbrook, opposite the preserved lands of the Carey Arboretum and near to the Taconic State Parkway make the 90 mile trip to Manhattan very manageable from your country home.
