About 129 WEST MEADOW LANE

Black Cap Farm evokes the atmosphere of a secluded Tuscan estate in every pristine, authentic detail. Set in the hills above Millbrook, the farm is surrounded by endless views of the entire Hudson Valley, stretching as far as the Catskills. The house, loggia, pool, guest quarters, and gym sit on a beautifully landscaped plateau above a sloping lawn that gives way to a cutting garden, rose beds, tennis court wrapped in wisteria vines, and ten additional acres of groomed sward. A fruit orchard and large vegetable garden enhance the pastoral beauty while providing a measure of sustainability. Though built to the most up-to-date standards, Black Cap feels as if it's been in place for centuries. The architect designed a home with details of comfort, beauty, modernity, and history in harmonious balance. The spacious dining-living room boasts two authentic 18th century Florentine fireplaces and flawless clay-tile floors. Fresh air and light pour in through custom French doors facing both east and west. The library opens to the loggia and one of many stunning views. A gathering place for family and friends, the kitchen is warmed by a fireplace with pizza oven, while three sets of French doors invite the glorious views. In summer, the kitchen opens to fabulous gardens, terraces, the uninterrupted panorama, and matchless sunsets. Upstairs, the master suite, removed from the other bedrooms, features vaulted ceiling, large windows, and spacious accommodations for gracious comfort and self-care, including steam shower and a soaking tub that has its very own view. This Millbrook estate exists in utter privacy on 130+ acres, half of which are protected by deer fencing. A long, private road leads to every outdoor spot on the estate that has been cunningly designed for restful ease, comfort, and beauty. Outbuildings include caretaker's home, heated greenhouse, four-stall equipment garage, full shop and office. Many of the remarkable features of Black Cap Farm were imported. The rest are of equally high quality and crafted with a sense of historic artistry. A two thousand bottle wine cellar with dining table, full laundry, maid's room, and cedar storage are on the bottom floor. Surrounding the house, an overhang, supported by twenty-four imported granite columns, allows for seating in sun or shade, and panoramic views for watching a storm approach, an eagle cavort, or the sun lower in the painted sky. Min 48 hr notice required for accompanied showings.
