    Description

    ICE POND FARM, EST. 1789 - "Arguably, this is one of the most bucolic properties in the Northern Hemisphere, and to that point, living here at the edge of the great pond, surrounded by meadows, your mountain ridge, trees and Hudson River views, offers the most therapeutic setting imaginable." -E Frost...... CIRCA 1770... As President George Washington's term began and ice was being delivered on a routine basis to Manhattan from an "ice pond in upstate Stony Point," we heard about this charming farmhouse being built. As we made our way to Stony Point by horse and carriage, "a trip of long duration and endless trails and ruts," 29 miles north of Manhattan, our excitement was bursting over; we always have sought such a residence with pastures of hay and barns for our horses... a 17 acre family estate with a large 2 acre pond at our footstep, this was just the dream. Upon arrival, we are greeted by The Baisley Family, proprietors of "Ice Pond Farm" and owners of Baisley Brothers Purveyors of Ice. Join us as we browse a property rich in nature's style and fruitful gifts...... CIRCA 1950... Now meet William Overgard, who purchased this property in 1950. An American cartoonist (Steve Roper and Mike Nomad, Rudy), writer (ThunderCats) and creative thinker, this was the most idyllic backdrop to enhance his dreams, as well as offer his family a most picturesque setting with the comforts of a charming farmhouse, embodied in a fabulous nature scene, built for hosting - even "The Mamas and the Papas" had a stay and performance here. As Overgard would lock himself in his spacious home studio and work from 9pm to 6am, it's hard to imagine a piece of comic art, made in this very studio which still remains in tact today (custom drafting desks, books, artifacts, original drawings and all), became the basis of a Roy Lichtenstein painting that sold at auction for $43 million...... TODAY... In addition to the main farmhouse, (3600+ square feet, original built-ins, antique fixtures, 5 fireplaces - one 6' wide!), partially renovated by the current owner with designer bathrooms and fairytale master suite, sits a Post-Revolutionary barn with new metal roof. Two extensions of the farmhouse were completed in 1830 and 1950. Another outbuilding contains a 1956 Spartan Royal Manor trailer, but that story comes later...... JUST IMAGINE... Meadows meet forest, pond meets a second pond, surrounded by 150 year old black walnut trees, weeping willows and organic fenced in gardens. The farm property itself is steeped with "gentlemanly" wildlife such as deer, ducks, hawks, geese and rarely seen, a fox or two. Paddle your boat around the pond, fishing or drifting... Sip cocktails or enjoy tea on the pond's boat dock... Dine and entertain, stargaze, by massive bonfires, under a full twinkling sky... If it rains, take shelter in the teepee or the many guest cabins you can build on this sub-dividable property... Have you been dreaming of a family compound, orchard, vineyard, yoga retreat, or simply an escape to the most inspirational setting in the Hudson Valley, less than 40 minutes to NYC? Well, pinch yourself, because dreams come true!
