If only those old walls could talk. It's hard to fathom the things they've seen and heard over the last nearly 300 years! The original field stone section of this home dates to 1730. Historians know it as the Benjamin Bruyn House and it once sat on a 600 acre tract of land. The original 1730, two story field stone home was enlarged in 1780 and then again in 1830, making it three connected buildings. The property was in the Bruyn family a good 100 years. During the Prohibition the ball room was a local speakeasy! Silent film star Lillian Gish is known to have resided here. Most recently this old stone mansion was completely rebuilt in the late 80's by an interior designer named Ben Schecter and the present owner has spent the last 20 years creating the beauty that you see now a days. Make note of all the fine molding and plaster work. Still proudly sited on nearly 50 acres of open pasture and woodlands with the main stone home, gorgeous guest house / studio bldg, beautiful 8 stall horse barn, 60' heated in-ground pool and even a care takers residence. The big open field was once a horse track and is now used to grow crops and to achieve a healthy AG exemption on the taxes! Stepping into the original 1730 section is like entering a museum. That open room was the original kitchen and dining room and over the years came to be known as the tavern room. It's roughly 14 x 20. Above it is a sweet bedroom with an exposed beam ceiling. From the tavern room you walk into the 1780 addition and what is the present day kitchen. That room flows into the dining room then the center hall section and on into the family room. From there one can walk into the 1830 ball room addition with it's incredible soaring ceiling, stone fire place and the bump out atrium. Don't miss the half bath as you enter that room. The three structures were attached in such a seamless fashion and it just gets more interesting as you head upstairs. There you'll find a delightful split level maze of rooms, many with working fireplaces as well as three full baths. Don't miss the library or the walk in closets. Believe it or not it goes up another floor to the most amazing attic space complete with sauna! A full basement sits under the 1780 and 1830 sections so make sure you check it out. Interior and exterior access to this area. We're talking over 5,000 sq ft of rambling space with a total of 7 fire places and all of it in wonderful condition. One of a kind for sure! She is looking for her next care taker and priced properly to sell.

Mortgage Calculator

Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty Ulster Savings This mortgage calculator can be used to figure out monthly payments of a home mortgage loan, based on the home's sale price, the term of the loan desired, buyer's down payment percentage, and the loan's interest rate. This calculator factors in PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) for loans where less than 20% is put as a down payment. Also taken into consideration are the town property taxes, and their effect on the total monthly mortgage payment.
