DeCaro Luxury Real Estate Auctions announced an absolute auction for 483 Sharon Station Rd. in Amenia, New York. The 8,500-square-foot home, known as Meri-Mac Farm, rests on 17.4 sprawling acres featuring a stable, run-in sheds and a horse pasture, which will sell to the highest bidder without reserve on auction day.

"The current owner took great care to preserve the original, rustic charm of the farm home, which was built in 1871. Luxury additions-like the glass-enclosed 2,000 bottle wine cellar with a large tasting room and connected catering kitchen-add to the appeal of this property," said Daniel DeCaro, DeCaro Luxury Real Estate Auctions Founder and Auctioneer. "This auction is an opportunity for homebuyers to own the perfect year-round or vacation retreat in an area of New York where families and celebrities alike go to escape."

The main home at Meri-Mac Farm features three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bathrooms and nine living, dining and entertainment areas, including a library, music room that can serve as a fourth bedroom, home office and a third-floor storage area with a balcony. The basement also includes the climate-controlled wine cellar, tasting room and full kitchen, as well as laundry and storage rooms.

The home has nine-foot-high, double-beamed ceilings, wide plank hardwood floors, French and sliding glass doors, four fireplaces and an elevator.

The home's gourmet master kitchen boasts two-story vaulted ceilings with exposed wood beams and a hand-crafted pendant light fixture that hangs above the kitchen's L-shaped peninsula, which features granite countertops and an eight-burner gas cooktop with a built-in grill, as well as a free-hanging stainless-steel range hood above. The kitchen also features a large butler's pantry with natural cherry wood cabinets and marble countertops.

The master bedroom features a fireplace, four walk-in closets with a separate dressing room, an exercise space, an additional sitting area. Sliding glass doors also lead to a large deck that spans the entire rear of the home.

The spa-like master bathroom features a ceramic-tiled shower room with multiple showerheads and floor-to-ceiling glass-brick walls, an oversized, soaking tub, two separate toilet rooms and his and her vanity sinks.

Expansive, manicured grounds at Meri-Mac Farm include an in-ground pool; a pool house with a full kitchen; a three-stall horse stable and several run-in sheds; a fenced-in pasture; a rose garden with a water feature; and a three-car garage. A separate guest house also provides two additional bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as a full kitchen, a living room, office space and a washer and dryer.

In addition, the new owner of Meri-Mac Farm will have the opportunity to purchase an adjacent 23-acre lot that overlooks Round Pond.
