A Most Unusual Offering- In the hillside above Van Hornesville, just 3 ½ hours from NYC, this early 1960’s home was the first large commission for well known architect, Willis N. Mills, Jr. and was featured in Record Houses of 1967 as well as July 1965 House Beautiful. Built as a family compound, the property consists of the main house offering open living space with loft areas over the living and dining rooms, library and large kitchen space with play area at one end. An end wing houses the master suite as well as three other bedrooms and a full bath. The living room has a cement wall fireplace and vaulted ceiling with an upper “quiet” or reading area. Vertical windows take in the surrounding countryside and offer perfect light for artists. The entire home is built of wood, block and glass with hardwood and tiled floors throughout. In excellent condition, little has been changed since its’ 1960’s conception. Behind the house, in its’ own private location, is a guest house. A living room with fireplace as well as a kitchen form the center of this charming bonus house, with two guest wings consisting of two bedrooms with a full bath at either end. An attached two-car garage is off the back of this building. At the beginning of the private drive is the original bard (red, of course) and a stocked pond with a small dock is perfect for swimming and fishing. At the bottom of the hill is sweet Van Hornesville, in its creek side setting with its’ mill pond center. This property offers 71+- acres of open fields, yards, deep woods, light woods, apple orchards, and plenty of open lawn space for play and gardens. This is truly a step back into another era in a peaceful, tranquil, get-away setting.
