Located in the heart of the Town of Washington near Millbrook village, The Roost has a beautiful and private view over a stunning 2.5 acre pond. Accessed by a historic scenic road, all 4200 sq. ft. of The Roost was renovated, extended and tastefully restored in 2004. Exterior updates were carried out in 2014. The main house is a Greek Revival farm house with cedar shake roof situated on 140 acres of some of the most interesting, varied and unique land in the area. On entering the home, one is struck by the stunning wide board floors of Walnut and Pine, most of which were harvested from the estate. With beamed ceilings and period details, yet with a contemporary flow and open style floor plan, a combination of traditional character and modern family living spaces has been created. The outdoor rooms are amalgamated with the interior spaces through the imaginative use of numerous French doors also allows copious amounts of natural light into the house. The formal English style sunken gardens and stone terrace create a focal point for outside entertainment which has the gorgeous backdrop of the spring fed pond. The second floor is home to the sublime master suite which captures a broad view of the pond and the morning's light. Nearby, the single storey guest house has three additional bedrooms a large central entertainment room, with pool table and large stone fireplace as well as a kitchenette. Off the main room is a lovely covered stone porch with built-in stone BBQ.

All this borders a 2000 acre preserve owned by the Center for Ecosystem Studies. The Roost's land is unrestricted by easements, has extensive road frontage in an area of 5 acre zoning.
