    Beverly Farm:  838 Route 9D, Garrison (MLS 3121029)

    This bucolic compound of converted, interconnected barns in Putnam County's heritage-rich Hudson Highlands region couples country chic with metropolitan minimalism in remarkable fashion.  Dating to 1750, it's believed Benedict Arnold frequented the grounds during his stint across the river as Commander of West Point.  While no doubt taking solace in the property's breathtaking vistas of meadow and mountain, we're quite certain he didn't pan-sear a free range chicken on its commercial-grade range, or hit a backhand lob in the tennis court.

    Built in 1810 by Sylvanus Stevens, a sergeant with the Continental Regiment during the American Revolution, this Pound Ridge property is exemplary of how historic integrity and modern needs are hardly mutually exclusive.  The home--set on 10 acres--boasts a chef's kitchen, guest house, two-floor artists studio and three-car garage while retaining the rustic charm of wide plank floors, hand-hewn beams and hardwood paneling.

    World War I naval commander Edward E. Spofford commissioned construction of this five-bedroom 1920s country estate, which was carefully restored and enlarged in 2007.  The main home, carriage house and greenhouse gently caress the parcel's 17 acres of open farmland with southern exposure.  Other amenities include a sparkling pool and cabana, carriage house with chauffeur's apartment and a tennis court.
