The Dutch Christy House (1747) and Skidmore House (c. 1750), Dutchess County

The Christy (1747) and Skidmore Houses (c. 1750)

In 1986 these two Dutchess County Dutch houses were saved from the wrecking ball and restored on five+ acres in one of the loveliest places in that county.

Years of the most knowledgeable restoration work has resulted in a private family compond of exceptional originality surrounded by equally appealing landscaping and gardens.

The restoration of the houses, the Christy House as the main residence, the Skidmore house as a guest house over a two-car garage, is of the finest I have seen in years in the Hudson Valley. Every effort has been made to preserve original features and surfaces and painstakingly replicate the few which were missing. The houses have been furnished beautifully with period antiques creating an ensemble one can expect of a magazine article. Antiques which are original to the Christy and Skidmore families are included in the purchase price. All other antiques will be available for sale to the buyer.

The property is situated privately on 5.376 acres in a neighborhood of handsome period houses on large landscaped parcels. Manhattan is just 60 miles by convenient train.

Call for further information including pictures, floor plans, history of the houses and the restoration and gardens.
