Contemporary House

  1. An attractive and efficient "green" 2500 sq ft contemporary rural house with decks and views.

  2. Adirondack camp built in 1934 by Russ Duxbury, Bill Duxbury and Jack Duxbury during the depression. Two bedrooms were added to the camp building by young architect Peter Duxbury in 1974. This unique and precious camp features an old masonry stone fire place, a rams head, stuffed deer head and authentic bear skin rug.

  3. The property is self-contained, and feels like it's own world defined by its rolling hills and two natural creeks.

  4. The land has many different and unique building lots and places that are both flat and sloped. Each area has its individual character, views and setting.

  5. Two unique and excellent water sources. Trout Brook and Shekomeko Creek are filled with native brown and brook trout.

  6. Two civil war era railroad embankments sit at the confluence of Trout Brook and Shekomeko Creek. These unusual concrete monuments look like paintings in their natural wilderness area.

  7. The land has a built-in road system connecting Hammertown road and highway 82. Also the existing railroad embankment could be built into an auxiliary road system. The nature of the property lends itself to a number of different types of development.

  8. The open pasture adjacent to Shekomeko Creek and wilderness area is a perfect area to incorporate into the Duchess County Land Trust.

  9. There is a wonderful 1825 wood barn, wonderfully intact and sits at the edge of Trout Brook. Adjacent is an existing a vehicle garage building.

  10. Some selective clearing and some planting could create an even better setting for the property.

  11. On the north side of Trout Brook is the highest point on the property, which has views of the Berkshires and the overall property.

  12. Over 40 acres of natural wilderness area that is created by the natural spring fed brook.
