Appeldoorn Farm offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a legendary Hudson Valley estate already renovated to the very highest standard. Home to generations of the Schoonmaker family since the early 1700s, Appeldoorn was modernized in the 1930s by architects Myron Teller and Harry Halverson, in the Colonial Revival style they made famous, for financier Howard Sykes, chairman of the predecessor to the American Stock Exchange. The estate, newly restored to its former glory as lived by Sykes, encompasses 22.4 protected acres of rolling meadow, bordered by similarly protected land, with spectacular views of Mohonk ridge. The 5200 sq. ft. main house includes 7 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, 3 wood-burning fireplaces, massive pine ceiling beams, wide oak floor boards pegged by spikes, and original wrought-iron door and cabinetry hardware. The large kitchen features tiled walls and stainless- steel counters. HVAC systems have been replaced with zoned, high-efficiency heating and cooling. A rebuilt dairy barn with soaring hayloft, a two-car stone garage, and a cabana complete the estate, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places and eligible for agricultural-use tax exemptions.
