Carmel, New York, located in Putnam County just an hour and a half north of the city, was described by the Times as “a quiet hamlet” where “many residents are highly protective of the lifestyle the 10-square-mile, semirural community offers.” And just take one look at this historic stone estate and you’ll understand why Carmel’s residents are so loyal to their charming community. Built in 1935, the 2,050-square-foot home sitting on a full acre has “European Chalet charm” according to the listing, and it’s all available for just $495,000.

The stone house is perched on a high piece of land, offering 80 miles of views of Lake Carmel and the surrounding greenery. Its stepped architecture is accented with Fieldstone walls, walkways, and patios completing the chalet look.

The rustic fieldstone walls carry over to the interior, but thanks to bright white walls, contemporary furnishings, and an abundance of large windows, it still feels open and bright. The open living room has a fireplace and steps to the stone patio.

An old wood-burning stove in the kitchen mixes with more modern slate floors, marble counters, and stainless steel appliances. The dining room, which opens directly to the yard, is separated from the kitchen by a partial stone wall and from the living room by a stone bar.

Upstairs are the home’s two bedrooms. The top floor was converted to an office nook, and there’s the potential to build a wrap-around roof deck.

There’s also a secret root wine cellar and an additional parcel of land that includes a pool. Plus, the site borders 500 acres of untouched land. But we’re still trying to wrap our heads around the unbelievable price tag for this true estate.
