Around 1710, the Palatines established themselves on the banks of the Hudson, arriving from Germany via England. One of the oldest buildings from this era is the First Reformed Church Parsonage, on Maple Ave in what is now called Germantown. Across the street, set back from the road and completely surrounded by protected parklands, we're pleased to present The Palatine House, a meticulously restored Greek Revival gem. Unlike nearly all historic farmhouses, Palatine House has large rooms, ample windows and generous spaces, making it the rare centuries-old home with the abundant light and flow demanded in new construction. Features include a wide staircase, original moldings, hand-made glass windows, soaking tub, new wide-plank oak floors, a great room and more than 3000 sq ft of living space; a truly spectacular four-season, floor-to-ceiling windowed sunroom w radiant heat and a wood stove for year-round outdoor living brought indoors; a gourmet chef's kitchen w Carrara counters and backsplash, JenAir refrigerator column, Fisher Paykel range, Meile dishwasher, built-in island w drawer freezer; a formal parlor/ground floor primary bedroom with full en-suite bath and the original soaking tub; two large bedrooms with walk-in closets; a beautiful step-down primary bedroom suite w sweeping Catskill views, a large walk-in shower, oversized soaking tub, and large walk-in closet; spacious laundry room; full footprint basement. The property also has three additional structures: a finished guest house with bath, where guests will feel connected yet private in their own separate house facing the woods, and two ready-to-be-reimagined barns, one also dating back to the 1700s, all surrounded by over 56 acres of private wooded Palatine Park. Off the garden sunroom there are views of the woods, the Catskills, the reflecting pond, the guest house and the barns. The guest house is fully outfitted with a loft, walk-in shower, and its own deck, perfect as a private artist or music studio. Nearby there is a fire pit and room for the perfect pool. The second barn would make a stellar pool house, another guest house, tea house, studio or stable.Ten mins to thruway, Amtrak, 1 hr 40 mins to NYC, just minutes from Hudson & Rhinebeck, close to Olana, Catskills and all the Hudson Valley has to offer, Palatine House is best in class, offering the provenance of an original farmhouse on a parcel large enough to transform into a private gated compound. A truly rare find.
