Nick Churton of Mayfair International Realty takes a look at a farm in Millbrook, New York that really does have something for everyone.
This isn’t going to be so much a blog as a list. It can’t really be otherwise. Because when Sky Blue Farm meets blue-sky thinking then the result is the most perfect house with a list of facilities that would do justice to the very best and most exclusive resort.
Set in 144 acres of amazing New York countryside and within the very smart Millbrook Hunt country, Sky Blue Farm, Millbrook, NY, is a headline property.
Beyond the very fine and sizable home is a fiefdom dedicated to sport, activity, relaxation and enjoyment.
Here’s that list: heated pool with cabana and outdoor kitchen; illuminated tennis court with pavilion; illuminated skating rink with Zamboni and cosy viewing shed; mirrored gym; spa; indoor basketball court; rustic home theatre with grandstand seating; sporting field with tower shoot, a professionally designed motocross track and woodland hiking trails.
Sky Blue Farm is also serious about horses with an 8,800 sq ft, 18-stall barn and 20,000 sq ft indoor ring with observation deck. Naturally there are all the other ancillary equestrian facilities that one could ever dream of. That is because it has already been dreamt of.
Then there is the guesthouse, the studio, the caretaker’s house, the garaging for 10 cars and the equipment sheds. There is a lot of equipment.
I haven’t touched on the most beautiful house. But take a look at the details. It is all there. In fact everything is there – the product of some real blue-sky thinking.
