    Description

    Mountain Prospect Farm. This joyous 296 acre Estate Farm is a regal admixture of 17 prime soil agricultural fields and ample mature woods of mostly oak, maple and other hardwoods and a two acre beaver pond. It is bi-sected by a tributary stream and an over a half mile snaking course of the trout-laden Taconic Creek. Mountain Prospect Farm was carved from the original 162,000 acre Royal Grant from King James II (1685) to Robert Livingston the Elder, first lord of the manor, by scions of the same Livingston family Anson, Carroll and Mary in 1857 by conveyance to John McNeil. He established a gentleman farm on 650 acres while serving as Taghkanic Town Clerk (1865) and Town Supervisor (1866 & 1867). In 1865 he erected a 5 b.r. Main House in the Greek Revival style with Romanesque embellishments as well as commodious barns. His family retained ownership until 1901. The entire farm is laced with farm roads and field delineating stone walls. From upper fields untrammeled views obtain of the entire Taconic Range including the dark prominence of Mount Everett (elev. 2608'), Catamount, the Catskill Mountains to the west, interior terraced and interconnecting fields as well as large adjoining estates that include a 600 acre assemnblage to the west. And still more land is available. Mountain Prospect Farm is handy to Hudson, Great Barrington, Copake Lake, Lake Taghkanic, skiing, golfing, Taconic State Park, Bash Bish Falls, the Rail Trail, the Taconic State Parkway and the train.
