Property Description

"WOODSIDE" – a legacy property for the ages. This expansive colonial farmhouse sits on 10 acres of sweeping emerald lawns backed up to forested lands. This cherished offering is a recently created parcel carved from one of the largest land preservation projects executed in the region, the intended preservation of iconic Sugar Loaf Mountain and some of its surrounding acreage. The home features many 19thc. & 20thc. period details including hardwood floors in the gorgeous front parlor rooms. Across its approx. 6,600 sq. ft. are 6 bedrooms and 3.2 bathrooms, including the spacious, contemporary c.1960's addition that creates a desirable, open twist on this antique beauty. Here, vaulted, beamed wood ceilings, walls of windows, and fireplaces punctuate two large living / recreation rooms on the 1st and 2nd level. The in-ground swimming pool, just off the back is complemented by a pool shed, and in the house – a locker/dressing room area. Across the large, paved driveway is "Woodside 1871", the prominent red barn of approximately 8,000 sf with 5 bay garage; imagine the possibilities! Up a gentle rolling drive on the lawn is structure #3, the "lodge", a fine post and steel shed building with an insulated room previously used as a hunting lodge. This building sits high where one can capture medium-distance scenic views over central Orange County as well as Woodside's breathtaking expanse. Prior to its current acquisition Woodside was lovingly cared for by one owner for many decades. Woodside is perhaps one of the most inspiring real estate offerings to come available in recent times and is well-suited for connecting with nature, entertaining, pursuing hobbies and many imaginative uses with its abundant indoor / outdoor space and amenities. The property is highly centralized to the hamlets/villages of Sugar Loaf, Chester, Monroe and Warwick and major Orange County attractions/destinations such as orchards/vineyards, Sugar Loaf PAC, LegoLand, Woodbury Common, West Point, Goshen Historic Track and more! All just about 75 minutes to NYC in NY's coveted Lower Hudson Valley.
