Total privacy. Astounding natural beauty. Professional-caliber equestrian facilities. These are just a few of the remarkable amenities offered at Grace Hill Farm, a distinguished country property ensconced in one of Millbrook’s premier locales.

Set quietly off a winding country lane, the beautifully designed 150-acre setting provides a sense of privacy and serenity that is becoming increasingly hard to find. Wondrous vistas that reach to the Catskill Mountains unfold across the gently rolling landscape whose many special highlights include shimmering ponds, lovely gardens, age-old orchards and a surround of fragrant woodland laced with miles of hiking and riding trails.

Elegant and immensely inviting, the classic English country house perched high on a hill takes full advantage of the breathtaking setting with tall windows and surrounding terraces that showcase the blissful prospects. Exemplary craftsmanship and rich character are displayed throughout the home, perfectly orchestrated for comfortable country living with stylish entertaining spaces and a charming country kitchen, certain to become a favored gathering place for family and friends.

A stunning pool, poolhouse, carriage house and several substantial outbuildings also share the verdant setting providing ample facilities for guests and staff alike.

For the equestrian, there is a newly added 14-stall barn, a true showplace fitted with state-of-the-art systems, an indoor ring and a memorable viewing and entertaining space designed for competitions and large gatherings. A dressage ring, outdoor ring, Grand Prix field and another five-stall barn are other standout features of this expansive and meticulously maintained equestrian estate.
