Tucked away amid the dirt roads and country atmosphere of Garrison, NY, fifty miles from Manhattan in Putnam county, this 1840s brick carriage house at 65 Indian Brook Road is the kind of home you rarely find in either city or hamlet. The 4,000 square-foot, three-bedroom home (h/t Circa), asking $1.295 million, has open loft-like proportions, hand hewn beams, a cozy wood-burning stove and high ceilings, with modern details like floor-to-ceiling glass, central air and a gunite pool off the back patio.
An open great room is framed by those soaring ceilings and hand-hewn beams and polished stone floors. Lots of brick and exposed venting for the HVAC add to the laid-back loft effect.
The kitchen looks as if it could stand up to any culinary challenge with a massive stone-topped island, huge SubZero fridge and industrial pendant lighting. An adjacent dining area is both sophisticated and purposefully plain.
Upstairs, bedrooms are large and tranquil; like many of the rooms in this surprise of an antique carriage house, an airy “zen den” of a studio/library gets plenty of sun and awaits whatever use you envision for it.
Sited on just under an acre of land, the surrounding grounds have received similar consideration, including a lovely and durable gunite pool. Located in the heart of Garrison, you’re just minutes to the Metro North train and the antique village of Cold Spring, and just down the road from nature preserves like Constitution Marsh and Indian Brook Falls–and the Hudson River.
