PAWLING, N.Y. -- With the Fishing Season open this April 1st it is a perfect time to take notice of this Quaker Hill jewel, located at 20 Akindale Road, in Pawling, NY.
A unique family hideaway, this historic former 1732 Grist Mill has been modernized and enjoyed by a world famous architect, Max Urbahn, and is now a charming 4 bedroom home. Poised streamside on Brady Brook, native brown and brook trout abound and the fishing is fabulous. The delightful sounds of the nearby waterfalls and the stream itself are mesmerizing and are sure to relax you. With extensive patios, an outdoor undercover barbecue, and multiple outdoor sporting venues – fishing, swimming, ice skating, cross-country skiing as well as multiple local golf courses – the options for the outdoor enthusiast are many. A bucolic setting such as this is hard to find. This charming hideaway is filled with primitive antiques which the owners collected over the years to set the ambiance, which is warm, welcoming and tranquil.
The cook’s kitchen looks out to the stream and offers six burner professional Garland gas stove and double sinks. The tile flooring has been reclaimed from an eighteenth century French Chateau.
The charming dining room with large window seat and brick fireplace wall stands ready to welcome dinner guests. The open flow leads to the spacious living room with fireplace, beamed ceiling, superior closet space and built-in cabinetry. Excluding the tiled floor kitchen, there are hardwood and softwood floors throughout the home.
The second floor has four bedrooms and two full baths, one of which is in the master bedroom.
Outside, the patio space is extensive. An exterior storage closet serves as a wine cellar, as the temperature remains constant and perfect for wine storage.
A guest house/studio is steps away. It has a stone floor with radiant heat, vaulted ceiling, wood burning stove and a wall of windows which contain a set of French doors leading out to a private patio.
There is approximately five hundred feet of stream frontage with specimen trees and plantings.
Whether you’re a fisherman, artist, writer, nature lover or simply someone who appreciates an idyllic setting this is an extraordinary opportunity.
A public open house is scheduled for Saturday April 5 from 12 noon- 3 pm.... Fishermen and women welcome!
