An instant classic: this enchanting 1820 Greek Revival Farmhouse has been re-equipped and re-imagined as a move-in-ready country home with every 21 st century luxury amenity. Situated on a picturesque, pin-drop quiet dirt road, it’s only 20 minutes from the hip and happening towns of Hudson and Great Barrington. 77 Craryville’s 12.86 acre property is like a private, perfectly curated park with winding pond, mature fruit trees, level land, ample fenced-in vegetable garden and original bright red barn. The main house’s historic façade with fancifully embellished portico and eyebrow windows harmoniously plays off the very modern additions to the interior. A 1998 extension includes stunning sun-drenched chef’s kitchen with spacious angled island, expansive Wood Mode cabinets, 6-burner Wolf oven and premier class Liebherr French door refrigerator, all illuminated by a massive skylight . A contemporary take on a colonial checkerboard maple floor connects kitchen to breakfast area with perfect views of the pond. A crowd pleaser for cocktails and casual meals, especially in warm weather, is the 3-exposure screened-in sun porch with natural wood cathedral ceiling, blue stone floors and massive fireplace. On the modern addition’s second level, a massive primary suite includes two bedrooms connected by a spa bathroom with black textured tile, contemporary vanity sink, soaking tub, plus a laundry room and knotty pine-paneled office with dual built-in desks, designed for working-from-home power couple. An ample storage room about the 2-car garage includes a walk-in cedar closet.

Approximate 2 hour drive to NYC; also easy access to Amtrak train.
