This Kinderhook Farm Is a Wine Lover's Dream Home

The 14,700-square-foot manor has eight bathrooms and a 2,500-bottle wine cellar.


Location: 460 Kinney Road, Kinderhook

Description: Known as Folly Farm, this French-style estate offers 90 acres of rolling meadows and light woodlands—and spectacular views of the Catskill Mountains. The 14,700-square-foot house, reminiscent of a Normandy Manor and featuring five bedrooms and eight bathrooms, was built in 2008.

The second floor features three guest suites, one with its own staircase and full kitchen. The lower level features a 2,500-bottle wine cellar, exercise room with full bath, workshop, and multiple storage rooms. An underground walkway leads to the coach house, which has a large guest apartment and a stone clock tower. 

Outdoors, the designer gardens include a double allee of pleached Linden trees, each with a wisteria-draped pergola. A cypress greenhouse opens to a walled and sunken kitchen garden with raised beds. There is also a French stone fountain and a stone veranda with built-in grill and fireplace. The first-floor master wing has its own walled shade garden to create a private retreat. 


Asking price: $9,975,000

Selling points: The rooms are quite large, with lots of architectural and design details, including Venetian plaster, rich hardwoods, imported stones, riffed quarter-sawn floors throughout, high and beamed ceilings, French doors, walk-in closets, and a wet bar.

The estate offers far-reaching country vistas in every direction, yet the hip and happening city of Hudson is just five minutes away.

Downside: The estimated annual taxes are $106,917.

Listing agent: Roberta Lorio, Houlihan Lawrence
