Meadow Wood

Welcome to Meadow Wood 

This elegant property on a secluded reach of the Green River epitomizes the concept of indoor/outdoor living. The graceful and meticulously maintained 30 acre estate features specimen trees, established gardens, a lilypond, terraces, pastoral views, and wonderful privacy. 

The custom home, built by one of the region’s premiere builders, has been featured in design magazines, garden tours, and has received a Garden Club of America award for its ethos and thoughtful use of building materials. The house was constructed using sustainable and recycled low maintenance building materials designed to last a lifetime. 

In addition to the light-filled main house, the property includes the gardens, fenced fields, a 2 car garage with potting room and a studio/guest space/office above. This space overlooks the courtyard and a walled garden. The Gunite pool is surrounded by an espaliered apple tree fence and a generous Goshen stone terrace with space to dine and lounge. The large screened pool house includes a half bath, outdoor shower, kitchenette, and massive two chimney fireplace. Further from the house is the barn complex consisting of a 2 bedroom apartment with yard and patio, a separate studio apartment and four garage bays. A hay/storage barn, cutting gardens, and a separate private drive complete this part of the estate. 

Hidden from the road, the main house is approached by a long drive lined with mature Scarlet Oaks and masses of daffodils in the spring. A courtyard filled with specimen crabapple trees, stone walls and a meandering walkway creates the welcome entry to this one level home. The exterior walls are planted with climbing hydrangea that blur the lines between structure and nature—a common motif throughout the property. The setting is both well designed and peaceful. 

The grand entry foyer sets the tone for the house. It connects to an enfilade of rooms filled with southern sun that run the length of the house.  The south facing rooms have large windows and french doors that welcome both the light and warmth from the sun on a winter’s day and open onto exterior terraces in the fair months. All the rooms have extensive garden and pastoral  views. 

On the east side of the entry is the living room with high, coffered ceilings and a fireplace made with grand tour columns. Adjacent to the living room is the primary suite with doors to a private terrace, shower, and lawn. The velvet covered walls create perfect silence, a jewel box of a room. Dual bathrooms and closet areas with a steam shower and a large soaking tub with views complete the suite. 

West of the entry hall is the large eat-in kitchen with high ceilings, and coveted AGA range. The kitchen’s french doors open onto a blue stone patio with the large lily pond, a view of the fields, and cherry trees which shade an outdoor dining space. The kitchen/service area includes a butler’s pantry with extensive storage, and a mudroom that leads to the back door and basement. (The basement consists of  laundry room, 2 storage areas,  cedar closet, wine room, and a huge finished room with box beds, TV and its own internet. The utility room is spacious and contains the furnace, boiler, the controls for the radiant heat and other mechanicals.) 

Returning upstairs, the far west end of the house, with perfect evening light, has a cozy sitting room. Adjacent to this is the smaller of the two office/library spaces, another library is located between the guest room and the larger office/sitting room. Both library areas have custom floor to ceiling bookshelves. The larger office has french doors that open to a private and romantic courtyard garden with espaliered peach trees and colorful blooms to attract pollinators. Western windows have views of a fenced field and plantings. This room could easily be reconfigured as a family room or another private sitting area. 

Steps away from the southern facing terrace, perched majestically on a small rise, is the Parthenon-like pool house, a focal point of the outdoor areas. The adjacent heated pool uses copper ionization instead of chlorine. All the pool services are located in a bunker that allows the outdoor areas to stay completely quiet. 

Meadow Wood was designed for maximum flexibility. There is space for family, visitors, staff, animals, parties large and small, gardening and potting, and farm equipment. Its magic extends into the impeccable gardens and the woods and fields around it. Step into a world of enchantment and be transported to a realm of natural beauty and tranquility.  The intimate spaces and thoughtfully curated common areas throughout the property create an environment that is as classic and timeless as it is fun and whimsical. It is truly a home that seamlessly integrates its beautiful  interior with the curated natural beauty that surrounds it.
