Rarely can such 360° prepossessing views of both local farms and orchards and the displayed Catskill Mountains co-exist. Crowning Meadows Farm is a 183 acre feast to the eye of tiered plateaus of cropland, considerable woods laced with seemingly endless mown driving and horse trails-all interconnected, hedgerowed meadows, stonewalls, two ponds (one at the entrance; one an upper pond with Catskill views), two streams and select specimen apple trees.

From a pillared entrance off a country road, suspense builds as a three quarter mile newly engineered gravel driveway meanders upwards to the highest elevation. Innumerable sites for a private and baronial main house and dependencies present themselves in an overwhelming drama of variegated topography and retained specimen trees. Moreover, Crowning Meadows Farm abuts and enjoys exquisite views over not one, but five, estate farms. Three are each over 200 acres and have large entrancingly private fields - bereft of houses or structures - that border Crowning Meadows. These fields, visible periodically through natural screening, lend an other worldliness to this offering. This very timelessness is augmented by the extremely private and high woods culminating at the rear of the property. It is comprised of mature hardwoods and a spruce grove from which Catskill views could be cut, if so desired.

For the discerning purchaser, Crowning Meadows is the Hudson Valley nonpareil. Rarely indeed do properties of such scale and majesty come to market. Moreover, it is quite handy to Hudson, the train, the Berkshires and the Taconic State Parkway.
