About 289 Beekman-Poughquag Road

Steeped in history and covered in vines, Noxon House is fresh off the pages of Elle Decor. Built in the Georgian style by Benjamin Noxon in 1770, today the historic home is tucked behind a marvelous privet & sits amongst gardens of peonies & hydrangeas. The one acre property backs up to a whimsical stream and is surrounded by protected land. One cannot help but notice the precise symmetry throughout the house-- the Golden Ratio or 'divine proportion'' was often applied in Georgian architecture and is said to be the root of all beauty in nature, art and architecture. From the fenestration, its hipped roof and four-over-four layout, the home is formal in both style and stature yet surprisingly relaxed, with an easy-going quality that is highlighted by its graceful proportions. The current owner/designer has sensitively preserved the home and its understated beauty, highlighting original details such as wideboard plank flooring, original hardware and handblown glass windows. Enter the kitchen through the side Dutch door to find a generous hearth, a large center island and a gas range. In the dining room, the brick fireplace is flanked by floor-to-ceiling original built-in cabinetry, and 12-over-12 windows flood the tall space with light. Opposite the dining room & kitchen are the living & family rooms, separated by original pocket doors and both with fireplaces, and you'll find a first floor half bath tucked under the wide central stair. On the second floor are three gracefully sized bedrooms, including a primary suite and what is currently functioning as a spacious & comfortable office. Another full bath completes the second floor. A reading room has been masterfully put together on the second floor landing. The partially finished basement, where you'll find the home's original hearth, is set up as a gym & could be utilized as additional living space. The barn, with its standing seam metal roof, offers further possibilities for a studio or guesthouse. Noxon House is ideally located in the Hudson Valley just 6m from Metro North and 1.5h to NYC.
