Spy Hill Estate

May 14, 2018

Category: Living

While colonial architecture sure is beautiful, it’s not entirely uncommon in the United States. So, for a colonial-style home to be truly exceptional, there has to be a bit of a story to it. This one, in New York’s Hudson Valley has both beauty and story in spades thanks to the fact that it was once home to one of the States’ first secret agents.

Lovingly dubbed Spy Hill, this compound was built in 1789 and spans four gorgeous acres of land including a 3,000 square foot main house, a large pool, a 19th-century barn (complete with a yoga studio and workshop), a greenhouse, and a large guest cottage. The main house also includes three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, a library, and an abundance of both indoor and outdoor lounge areas. Between the architectural and historical significance of this property and the amenities included (yes, it comes fully furnished), the $1,625,000 price tag is actually kind of a steal.

Purchase: $1,625,000
