You’re dreaming of a new home, something with enough room for family and friends. Water views. Ample acreage to explore without leaving your own property, but close enough to some of the most charming villages in the Valley that there are things to do if you choose to.
Dream no more. This is 1955 Lucas Turnpike in High Falls.
This modern home is more than 6,400 sq ft on one floor and has everything you can think of.
The winding driveway takes you through just part of the 108-acre parcel, which features a four-stall horse barn and riding trails. And if you love the tranquility of the water, there is extensive frontage on the Rondout Creek.
Adjacent to the home, connected by a covered walkway, is a four-car garage with a one-bedroom apartment above. Also adjacent to the home is a two-bedroom, two-bathroom guesthouse that the owners emphasized was built with the same high-quality materials and workmanship as the main home.
As for the main home, it’s impressive. The heart of the house is an enormous great room, with a double-sided fireplace and 16-foot ceilings. There’s even two kitchens: one for cooking and one for entertaining.
The west wing features two en-suite bedrooms as well as a den that could function as another bedroom. The east wing has what the owners call a ‘his and hers master’ with two adjoining bedrooms – one with a fireplace.
A large home office, lofted gym, two bathrooms, and a mudroom complete the main level, while the full basement features a movie theater, billiard room, a full bath, direct access outside to the property, and one more gorgeous fireplace.
Forget nighttime fantasies; at 1955 Lucas Turnpike, you’ll be living the dream.
