Just outside the quiet village of Dorset and set against the backdrop of the Taconic mountains, this 20+ acre property reflects the pursuit of a slow, intentional existence with a connection between the living space and the outdoors. Charles Sawyer, the architect, drew from an Adirondack stylebook, integrating Douglas fir and native stone to create a sophisticated 5 bedroom dwelling. Sited at the water's edge of a large pond; the design takes in the views from the Great Room's expansive windows, from the spacious screened-in porch and from the first floor primary bedroom. Outside the upper stone terrace provides a lovely setting for summer suppers and the lower stone terrace, a hub for pond activities. The pond, generously fed by a well and spring, is stocked with trout, and is big enough for a paddle in a canoe and refreshing daily swims. A path runs along the Mettawee River on the NE border, another loops around the pond and there are adjoining trails to explore including into the village. Gather friends and family for a spirited game of hockey on the pond or snowshoe on the trails. Everyone can warm up beside a crackling fire in the stone fireplace in the Great Room, a perfect setting to reflect on the day's adventures. In addition to perennials, there's an edible landscape of asparagus, blueberries, apples and pears. Rounding out this slice of heaven is a greenhouse, sauna, rec room, office, gym, 2 bay garage and barn. High speed internet. Delayed Showings until 07.07.23.
