Set in the hills above Millbrook, Black Cap is surrounded by endless, heart-stopping views of the entire Hudson Valley. The house, loggia, pool, guest quarters, and gym sit on a beautifully landscaped plateau above a sloping lawn that gives way to a prolific cutting garden, rose beds, tennis court wrapped in fragrant wisteria vines, and ten acres of groomed meadow. A fruit orchard and abundant vegetable garden enhance the pastoral beauty while providing a measure of sustainability. The architect Pietro Cicognani designed a home with details of comfort, beauty, modernity, and history in harmonious balance. Black Cap feels as if it's been in place for centuries. The spacious great room boasts two authentic 18th century stone fireplaces and floors of limestone tile imported from France. Fresh air and light pour in through six custom French doors facing both east and west. The library opens to the loggia and one of many stunning views. A central gathering place for family and friends, the kitchen is warmed by a fireplace with pizza oven, while three sets of French doors invite the glorious views. In summer, the kitchen opens to fabulous gardens, thyme- and lavender-laced stone terraces, the uninterrupted panorama, and matchless sunsets. Upstairs, the primary suite, removed from the other bedrooms, features vaulted ceiling, large windows, and spacious accommodations for gracious comfort and self-care, including steam shower and a soaking tub that has its very own view. This 130 acre Millbrook estate is so secluded that people driving on the Shunpike do not even know it's there. A long, private drive leads through the natural habitat to every outdoor spot on the estate that has been designed for restful ease, comfort, and beauty. Discreetly set apart from the residence, outbuildings include caretaker's home, heated greenhouse, four-stall equipment garage, full shop, office, chicken house, and run-in shed. There is ample room on the property for livestock or a stick and ball polo field. A two thousand bottle wine cellar with dining table, full laundry, maid's room, and cedar storage are on the bottom floor. Surrounding the house, the loggia allows for seating in sun or shade, and panoramic views for watching a storm approach, an eagle cavort, or the sun lower in the painted sky.
