A 40-acre property in Flanders that was once a duck farm, now being used as a private estate, is on the market for $1.595 million.
The property has a Contemporary four-bedroom, 3 1⁄2 -bathroom home built in 2000 and three metal barns with heat and electricity, which are used by the current owner, an artist, as studio space.
There also are three ponds on the property, including one with a dock for kayaking and canoeing, and a heated gunite pool.
“It’s very private and wooded,” says Amanda Field Kelly of Douglas Elliman Real Estate, who is co-listing the property with Scott Bennett. “People who come to look at it are those who want lots of storage and farmers looking to use the barns.”
