    Hello Dolly Real Estate
Property Type: Inn

Description: Lundy Farm is an enchanting inn tucked away within the Vernooy Kill State Forest amid 30, 000 acres of forever-wild land, miles from the nearest neighbor, offering unparalleled privacy and immersion in unspoiled nature. Bounded on one side and accessed by a bridge across the Vernooy Kill itself, the mountainous backdrop shields a series of residences, accessory buildings, allees, vistas and stonework that are unrivaled. The compound includes a 25’x60’ gunite pool, tennis court, orchard, 3000 sq ft state of the art greenhouse, 4-acre organic regenerative farm, chicken coop, and barn. The gracious 7500+ square foot main house, with 7 bedrooms and 8 baths, is clad in French limestone and presents a classically designed façade coupled with gracious proportions, high ceilings, lots of windows and natural light. Interior spaces are crisp and spacious, with a combination of flowing gathering spaces, private suites with elegant bathrooms, a residential-style kitchen, octagonal library, fireplaces, massage room and media room. The five-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom guesthouse, at 3400+ square feet, shares the same design and finish elements of the main house, providing a consistency in aesthetic and feel. Commercial kitchen and communal dining facility are housed in this building. Approval is pending that will allow for the hosting of larger events on the property. Former stable complex includes staff quarters, wash + pack room for farm output, and yoga/exercise room. Heading toward the north end of the property, along roads that are lined with cedars and majestic views, and past a crystal-clear pond and a fantastic treehouse that overlooks it, there’s a pleasant surprise at every turn. The barn, paddocks and chicken coop offer plenty of opportunity to raise livestock and farm animals, and plenty of good, arable land awaits the planting of additional food crops. Farther along, and nestled in the woods, lies a lone writer’s cabin with a vintage river-rock fireplace, easily repurposed as an artist’s studio or contemplative space. And then there’s the lodge, Mr. Lundy’s old hunting cabin, one of the most evocative and romantic buildings this real estate agent has ever seen. A double-colonnade supports symmetrical rows of stucco arches that soar to a cathedral ceiling and frame a set of opposing fireplaces and mirror-image staircases that will take your breath away. The conservation easement on the property, coupled with the state forest preserve that surrounds it, ensure that the estate will remain the private oasis that it is now. Just a short drive will take you to nearby towns for dining, shopping, recreation or theater and property is under 2 hours from NYC.
