Nature lover's sanctuary in beautiful Garrison. This furnished, two-story home features 3 BR + 2 home offices set in 2 bucolic acres. Sheep graze in paddocks across the lane. The entrance includes a stone wall beside a pond graced by a resident Peking duck. The area offers award-winning architectural homes and gardens, as well as a lot of protected green space and trails. Yet, it is 12 min to shopping, 1 hr to NYC, and 7 min to Metro North.
Two brooks meander along two sides of this home, surrounded by a moss and fern woodland garden. Perfect for those who want to be serenaded by nature's soothing sounds, not traffic! Enjoy the large deck (800 sq ft) w gas grill, myriad seating areas, and alluring day bed draped w mosquito netting. The deck overlooks a small pond fed by a babbling brook with tiny waterfalls. Relax in the hammock while listening to the stream. Walk to the Hudson River and numerous trails, including the Appalachian Trail.

Among other amenities, the upper floor features an open floor plan, renovated kitchen and bathrooms, library/reading nook, an in-house stereo speaker system, and terrific art collection.
