Heather Croner Real Estate Sotheby’s International Realty, a luxury real estate firm based in Millbrook, today announced it completed the sales of two significant farms in New York’s Dutchess and Columbia counties this month for a combined $13.75 million.
Mountain Range Farm at 174 Dales Bridge Road in Germantown sold for $7 million. The 677.5-acre working farm features open and rolling land, fenced pastures, vineyards and orchards and offers views of the Catskill Mountains.
The property also has a wide, flowing creek and many large ponds that aid drainage and provide water for livestock. Additional property features include a guest house, tennis court, two swimming pools, a manager’s house and other staff accommodations.
Old Stone Farm at 68 Naylor Road in Staatsburg sold for $6.75 million. The 236-acre historic farm is used as a modern-day retreat and wellness center. The focal point of the estate is a restored 1768 stone Dutch colonial farmhouse on a promontory at the center of the property. The house overlooks a stream-fed pond, waterfall and original mill house that serves as a writer’s office.
The property also features a restored 1830 guest house, a world-class equestrian center, 1820 barn complex, more than two miles of riding trails, a renovated 1750 barn, dining facility with commercial kitchen, a restored 1789 inn, spa and an open dining-dancing pavilion.
“These two farms represent the iconic Hudson Valley image that continues to attract buyers from all over the world who want to own a piece of our beautiful land,” said Heather Croner, owner of Heather Croner Real Estate Sotheby’s International Realty. “The Hudson Valley has inspired artists and poets for centuries, and these two properties are a prime example.
