Strawberry Hill is a captivating historic estate in Rhinebeck set on more than 21 private and luscious acres. The enchanting property is anchored by a gable-roofed German stone farmhouse built into a hill and set back from the road. Commissioned in 1762 by Henry Beekman, one of the earliest land patent holders in the Hudson Valley, the estate also has an exquisite 1800 Dutch barn, a carriage house, and an inground pool.
The main house has four bedrooms and four bathrooms including a master suite, an independent guest wing above the kitchen, and a sun-drenched screened-in patio. Timeless original details like Dutch doors, 8-over-12 windows, two stone fireplaces, and wide board floors blend seamlessly with a luxurious kitchen and top-shelf modern appliances.
The fully equipped three-bedroom carriage house, connected to the well-preserved barn, is a short walk from the house and ideal for guests or studio space. The inviting gunite pool with hardscaping is surrounded by strategically positioned trees and flowering bushes ideal for relaxing in peace and seclusion.
Once known as the Lilac Farm, the landscape is dotted with majestic tall trees and hybrid lilacs that fill the air with a sweet scent starting in the first warm days of spring. Strawberry Hill is ideally located just 5 minutes from downtown Rhinebeck and Amtrak and 2 hours from New York City.
