Property Type: Single Family

Description: Unique, jaw-dropping and now impeccably restored, the “Trophy House” was designed by legendary architect Myron Teller for a Wall Street stock-exchange chief who needed space to entertain notables and display his collectibles from big-game adventures and other world travels. Built in the late 1930s as a new building on the storied Appeldoorn Farm, ancestral home of the Schoonmaker family since the early 1700s, the Trophy House, upon entry, appears to be a traditional stone house of the era. But take a few steps into the gallery foyer and you are suddenly looking down on an epic 30x41 living room bracketed by a newly re-built casement bay window and a soaring cut-stone fireplace. The room, overlooked from a paneled balcony and reached by a sweeping split staircase, rises a staggering 28 feet to a ceiling peak joined by antique axe-hewn roof trusses and hand-forged hardware, a trademark of the Colonial Revival style that Teller made famous. Gracious proportions and pristine details and hardware, hand-crafted by local artisans, animate every room of the house, including the period bar room and a mammoth club-sized master bathroom. As part of a painstaking multi-year restoration project, the house now also features a bolstered foundation and flooring, new kitchen, new electrical service and plumbing, state-of-the-art zoned heating and new twin septic systems. Privately sited on 8.6 acres at the end of a long driveway flanked by stone pillars, the Trophy House and its companion “Gate House, ” a charming 2-bedroom, 1.5-bath clapboard farm house perfect for hosting overflow guests, are surrounded by an additional 131 acres, all of it protected from development by conservation easements. The property, just 2 hours by car from NYC and also convenient to Kingston and New Paltz, won a place on the National Register of Historic Places in 2013.
