Kent is located in north-central Putnam County, just south of Dutchess County. Kent is considered a rural region with many beautiful lakes, ponds, reservoirs and rocky mountain ranges.
Equidistant to either historic Cold Spring Village on Metro North's Hudson Line or to Brewster on the Harlem Line, Kent has become a popular second home market.
As a retreat from the hustle and bustle of New York City, Kent offers its own brand of sophistication. This 1850's Kent farmhouse was recently featured in a home design magazine that showcases a newly designed gourmet kitchen with modern finishes that add just the right amount of edge to this historic home. This home located at 608 Farmers Mills Rd Carmel, NY is on the market and also features working shutters, a fireplace, an outdoor kitchen, and magnificent gardens designed by the landscape designer owner.
Another home for sale in Kent is 57 Stonegate Ct Carmel, NY, a four-story weekender home that invites the outside in with wraparound decks on all levels. Seasonal views of the reservoir turns this tree house into a houseboat with five bedrooms, a playroom, a separate office suite with private entry, and a family and exercise room. A summer living room and two-story living room with fireplace complete this have-it-all retreat.
