A 206-acre estate with 10 stables, cross-country course and more

  • Hallmark Farm, on 123 Butts Hollow Road, is near the village of Millbrook, which is in Dutchess County, New York, in the US. Millbrook is in the Hudson Valley, on the east side of the Hudson River, 90 miles (140 km) north of New York City. Millbrook is often referred to as a low-key version of the Hamptons, and is one of the most affluent villages in New York.
