This property is being sold as the perfect haven for a New Yorker who needs an escape upstate. Located at 287 Marcott Road, in Stone Ridge, it’s a sprawling 15 acres that’s just 80 minutes from Manhattan and 20 minutes from the Amtrak station. On all that land is an 1800s stone structure, which has been renovated and is used as the main house, a heated in-ground pool and a guest house, all surrounded by forest. And it’s asking about the price of a one-bedroom apartment in Manhattan, $915,000.

There’s tons of land to explore and build on here, with the current amenities connected by a gravel path. Follow the path from the main house to the fenced cutting garden, lush with flowers, or the heated in-ground pool with a stone diving board. Surrounding such amenities are fruit trees, forest, meadows and even sculptures.

You enter the main house through a replicated 19th century Dutch door. The living room has been preserved of its exposed beams, wide plank floors and a fireplace refaced with Delft tiles.

From the pine-floored great room, there’s a wood stove, two new heaters, and a large affixed painter’s easel. In fact, this property has long housed painters, according to the listing.

This balcony is perched off the second floor of the guest house, which also could be used as an artist studio. Your landscape can’t get more inspiring than these 15 acres you see right out the window–be sure to peruse the rest of the gallery to get the full experience.
