Equestrian Dream - 429 Taconic Rd
This was my favorite among the open houses that I toured today...listed for $23,500,000 it is located on Taconic #429 - on nearly 13 acres of property that the owners had sited and leveled on three flat tiers. It also abuts conservancy, and there are riding trails surrounding the entire area.
The home itself is impeccable - (and so are the stables, which we toured as well), having been built a year and a half ago. There is a beautiful garage apartment for the hands, an indoor facility with artificial sand (dust-free and kind on their joints). It is truly state of the art.
The interior is understated, calming neutral tones and built with the latest materials. It is heated and cooled with geothermal.

Another home that I toured today in this price range, $25,000,000 - 218 Clapboard Ridge Rd - An English Manor set on over 5 acres - over 13000 SF of living - a wine cellar, theater, formal appointments throughout....

There is a buyer for every property - when looking at these two, it doesn't begin to add up for me. Hands down, Taconic would get my vote for someone wanting to spend $20M+, but they may not like the idea of a pristine horse property, with a 15 minute commute to town set privately on 13 acres, with a gorgeous swimming pool and easy living.
