Dutchess Views Farm presides proudly in a storybook setting of other large farms and country houses on an eighty acre estate parcel with prime soils. It graduates from the entrance gates on a country lane through 17 oak-fenced paddocks to high meadows and finally to ancient woods laced with bridle trails. It overlooks a pastoral surround that includes significant conserved land. It culminates in exhilarating vistas of the Catskills, Stissing Mountain and the Berkshires. Dutchess Views Farm has enjoyed over 20 years of success standing at stud the top thoroughbred stallions in New York and annually producing approximately 50 thoroughbred foals destined to race or sell as part of the lucrative New York State Thoroughbred Breeding and Racing Program.
The higher now wooded elevations could be ideal, moreover, for a baronial main house with still further enhanced views. A comfortable and newly expanded three bed room 2145 s.f. main house is now centered in the lower horse fields. The manicured barns total 30,000 s.f., currently involving 24 plus horse stalls, a breeding shed, four quality apartments including a newly re-furbished and cathedralized, luxury owner's apartment, a full-size indoor arena (80 x 160), which is currently used as a mare barn with 38 stalls, and numerous supporting offices, tack rooms, etc. These artful structures have been featured in Architctural Digest and other magazines.
Near the Main Barn is the Pool and Pool House. Fourteen run-in sheds and haymounts are presently distributed in the paddocks. There has been over $250,000 in new barn roofing and $150,000 of improvements to the residences in the last two years.
Dutchess Views Farm has enjoyed a long and storied history, breeding thoroughbreds of standing. Until recently, for instance, it stabled Big Brown, winner of the 2008 Kentucky Derby and Preakness. If so desired, moreover, it could readily convert to a private equestrian, livestock or agrarian estate. Additional land is also available. Dutchess Views Farm is handy to Mashomack, Pine Plains, Millbrook, Millerton, Rhinebeck, the Taconic State Parkway and the train.
