About 42 Altamont Road

Have it all at this exquisite, turnkey country estate-compound that features complete privacy, along with cutting edge technology for today’s home office. Treetops Estate, perched at an 800-foot elevation, with a secluded 14 acres of park-like beauty, is nestled among 2,000 acres of privately owned estates. Discretely set off one of Dutchess County’s most exclusive and scenic country roads, this superbly landscaped property with mature gardens and heated gunite pool is just two miles from Millbrook Village. The property is in impeccable move-in condition and available fully or partially furnished. Treetops Estate comprises 3 independent and unique living spaces – an elegant main residence and pool house, a stand-alone studio apartment, and a charming spacious guest house. Each space is designed for comfort and privacy with separate entrances, breathtaking property views, and top-of-the line appliances and fixtures. Among the many features of the main residence is a state-of-the-art home-office with a private full bathroom. The versatility of these separate spaces is endless from the perfect residential home with room to spare for guests, extended family and caretakers, to a private corporate retreat or conference center. All three buildings are intercom connected and monitored by interior and exterior cameras. Dual back-up well pumps ensure steady and purified water to each. Smart thermostats, two propane automatic generators, and boiler sensors guarantee remote and steady temperature control, and full electric backup. High-speed internet, Optimum VoIP and Verizon service with 8000 and 8001 phone numbers, and an independent, private mini cell tower provide all the necessities and convenience of a modern, urban office.

The ground floor currently is configured as an open plan Great Room with a chef’s kitchen/eating area/living room, a formal dining room, a large den/library with wet bar and adjacent full bath, as well as a large home-office with an adjacent full bath. Both spaces can be easily transformed into a second bedroom suite for ground floor convenience.
