Two Aussies and a few hens
My two Aussie Shepherds love walks in the nearby parks and in my field. They are gentle, loving and trained well and love a routine. The 6 hens live in a coop and do not free range except for an outdoor enclosure, are easy to maintain and have very good manners.
The farmhouse is roomy, comfortable and full of great books, lots of privacy and a beautiful landscape. If you love nature, time away from the hustle and bustle, Fall colors and and other seasonal activities, this is a slice of paradise.
Our Home & Location
The house is located between the towns of Chappaqua and Briarcliff Manor. A car is a must for this location, on a quiet country road with access to all conveniences less than 1.5 miles in either direction. There is a long bike trail nearby if you like to ride, beautiful wooded trails for hiking and only 35 miles from Manhattan with easy train access.
Enjoy your own room, a guest room with an ensuite bathroom, WIFI, cable channels and an outdoor porch for eating al fresco. The kitchen has all convenience and the 'velcro' dogs will follow you wherever you go, making your visit warm and welcoming. It is quiet at night, so if you like hustle and bustle, the closest you will come to that is an occasional bark from the dogs.
Responsibilities & Pets
My dogs love long walks in several off-leash parks. If you like to hike through the woods and meet other dog lovers, you will enjoy this area. They also love the field around the house for sniffing and discovering all the wonderful scents, playing fetch and watching me do chores.
The chickens are very very easy to manage with a let-out in the morning and closing their exit door before dark. Enjoy fresh laid eggs for breakfast - they are very generous about sharing!
