Love and intent, greenery and grace. For decades, these were poured into the near seven acres of The Climbery, one of Columbia County's most unique places. For the first time in 34 years, it is being offered for sale. Upon entry, a driveway curves past stones walls to a Federal-style home and lush gardens which brim with trees and perennials cedar and black walnut, peonies and irises as well as the largest private clematis collection in the world, one lovingly built over decades. In season, they snake up cedar posts, trellises and facades, their buoyant flowers framing the sculptures dotted around the property. Overlooking the gardens and waters of Roeliff Jansen Kill is a two-story, 200-year-old home whose lines pick up where the garden leaves off. Inside, a cozy sitting room gives way to incandescent spaces: A country-style kitchen with a light-filled dining area, a den, and several bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. A four-season porch with wall-to-wall windows and bluestone floors is a magnet for gatherings. Among the four bedrooms is an upstairs primary suite with a walk-in closet, bathroom with soaking tub, and a summer porch that overlooks the garden and river beyond. Hardwood floors, scattered tile, three fireplaces, and ample built-ins capture the timeless warmth of the home. Yet there are other refuges, large and small, scattered around the grounds: Over the garage, an airy studio that could double as a private gym or meditation space. A gardening cottage nestled behind flowers and trees. Stone walls that call for pause. The time, labor, and love invested into The Climbery are apparent in every step through its grounds, one of the most notable places amongst North American gardens and a canvas awaiting their new stewards.
