A rare opportunity to own a pedigreed home in the Hudson Valley that can count only four owners in residence since 1770. Built during the earliest days of the Republic, this gabled Federal-era house was originally the home of one of Canaan's founders, Daniel Douglas Warner, and his wife Olive, the daughter of a Revolutionary War officer. Approached through an allee of maple trees and nestled amidst 159 rolling acres of woods and hay fields, this four-bedroom house exudes history at every turn. The house boasts nine-foot ceilings, original beams and burnished wide-plank floors as well as 12-over-12 sash windows of period glass. Its rooms are an interplay between the past and the present. There's a galley kitchen with a Viking stove, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, and a cozy breakfast nook. A formal dining room with its own fireplace; a library with built-in bookshelves, and another fireplace; a deep, marble ensconced soaking tub and a bidet in the primary bath are just some modern enhancements. A stone-walled basement and a full attic offer additional space for a workshop, studio, or storage. Outside, the Warner House is surrounded by gardens, patios, stone walls, a heated pool. Among the other historic outbuildings, the piece de resistance is a striking 1840 post-and-beam barn of intricate mortise and tenon-groove joinery. Two horse stalls, two pony stalls, a tack room, a second story hay loft topped by an elegant cupola for barn ventilation make this an equestrian's dream, not to mention the hundred plus of acres of woods and fields for riding and exploring. At the property's highest point, a ridge line offers sweeping views of the countryside around Canaan, itself a gateway between the fashionable Hudson Valley and the cultural riches of the Berkshires. The house at Warner Crossing enjoys the best of both worlds: Minutes from hiking, skiing, shopping, and destinations namely Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow and the Berkshire Theatre Festival. The home is also within comfortable distance to local markets and dining in nearby Chatham, N.Y. and Lenox, MA, and accessible by private plane through the nearby Pittsfield Airport. The beautiful patina of a time-honored home is always earned, never manufactured. Whether the new stewards of the Warner House choose to ride, swim, read, garden, cook, entertain, or simply relax under its eaves, they will become part of its story and certainly create new history of their own.,Level 1 Desc:LIVING,DINING,KITCHEN,DEN/OFFICE,BATH,LIBRARY,MUD,SITTING,InteriorFeatures:Electric Dryer Connection,Beamed Ceilings,Washer Connection,Gas Stove Connection,FLOORING:Wide Board,Wood,OTHERROOMS:Formal Dining Room,Library/Study,Pantry,Laundry/Util.
