If you want to get away from it all...a house with 62 acres of land and complete peace and tranquillity and only deer, foxes and birds to disturb you...

The house has one large master bedroom (with en suite bathroom with tub, shower) and French doors on three sides for magnificent views of the surrounding countryside.
There are two other formal bedrooms on the first floor and one -- with adjoining bathroom -- in the basement.
There is also a sleeping gallery/study/tv area above the kitchen, where you can write a letter or book/watch movies on Netflix, or extra guests can sleep on a futon.
The house comes with two children's beds, and a kids' playroom - toys are especially good for younger kids as our own are 5, 4 and 3.
We live in Beijing, China.
Once we saw the house with the old farmhouse beams, surrounded by acres and acres of wetlands, wildlife and countryside, we just couldn't bring ourselves to buy anywhere else.
If you like shopping, the house is an approximately 30 minute drive (13 miles) from the fabulous Woodbury Common Outlets (Ugg, Prada, Osh Kosh, JCrew and more):
If you like art, the amazing outdoor installations of the Storm King Art Center are 13 miles (just under 30 minutes) away:
Wine: I'm mostly into Italian and French wine (doesn't matter whether it's cheap or expensive) and not much of a new world wine drinker - let alone New York state - but I still think this place nearby might be worth a visit: http://www.brotherhood-winery.com/
They don't seem to do pony rides (which is the stage I'm at with my kids) but I loved the look of this place, it's owned by a French-Dutch couple:
