3 Houses. Office Building. 11 Barns. 116 Stalls. Fenced Paddocks. Cropland. Fields. 4 Ponds. 4 Streams. Trails. Woods. Views. Unrivaled Private Kingdom. Includes Pinnacle of Yellow City Mountain. 480± Acres.
For the first time ever, this 480± acre assemblage is offered. It affords prime agricultural lands that encompass both the well-known Keane Stud Farm and a sizable crop-production and livestock operation.
These high fields rise majestically to trail-laced woods covering another 40% of the land and culminate at the very pinnacle of Yellow City Mountain (1220’ elevation). From it, pre-possessing prospects of the Catskills to the west and the Taconics to the North could be easily achieved. Flat and gently sloping terrain afford an unparalleled opportunity for farm-based life supported by well drained fields. From these large fields, breathtaking farm vistas ennoble daily existence. Summitfields boasts four ponds and four streams.
Its infrastructure includes 39,000sf of barns (116 stalls are housed in six horse barns of superior equestrian design and articulation) on long elegant ring roads accessing well-fenced paddocks, aisles and hay meadows of blue grass and clover. A porticoed brick main office building (1,600sf) presides centrally at the end of a tree-lined entrance drive.
Less formal machine barns, hay barns and former dairy barns augment operations.
Three houses for farm manager, support staff or other uses are included. Many possibilities for a major country home overlooking the entire story-book setting exist.
This entire assemblage – breathtaking in its current articulation and lending itself well to many possibilities – borders one country lane lined by large farms, hundreds of acres of conserved land and trail-laced habitat, and is but half a mile from the Harlem Valley Rail Trail, a mile from the village of Amenia, a little over two miles to the Metro-North train station and just a few miles from storied Millbrook horse country and elegant Sharon, Connecticut.
Rarely does such an opportunity as Summitfields, within less than 2 hours of Manhattan and located in pastoral eastern Dutchess County, present itself.
