Enchanting restored 18th century farmhouse is nestled on a dead-end country lane in a most desirable Hillsdale location. On nearly 10 breathtaking acres, included is a separate building lot directly across the road. The classic farmhouse and barn are a tranquil reminder of the peaceful farm life, charmingly located among huge old maples, stone fences, gardens, and brook. The architectural gem has authentic early detail and perfect proportions – three fireplaces, wideboard floors, original mantels, doors, windows, trim, and hardware. The original front door with sidelights leads to a wide center hall and formal living and dining rooms. The updated kitchen has Sub-Zero fridge and Viking range, and adjoins a gathering room with wood stove and a cozy breakfast area all with exposed beams. French doors open to a charming back patio. Upstairs are two generous bedrooms and a full bath with soaking tub. In addition, there is a 600 sf attic space with rough plumbing, that could be a primary suite. The side entrance leads to a mud room/hall and a full bath with laundry. Enter through a garden courtyard enclosed by a high wooden fence and antique barn. The 18′ x 28′ barn has potential for living or studio space. The combination of antique farmhouse and new home site is a unique find. It enables a quiet retreat, eventually becoming a country compound with endless possibilities for family and friends. Build a new dream home on the groomed ready lot with buried electric lines, gated entry, wooded trails, a trout stream, and protected field and valley views. Tucked away in an area of upscale homes, the property is equidistant to Hudson and Great Barrington. Near all Hudson Valley and Berkshires offerings, it’s a short ride to Hawthorne Valley Farm Store and School, Ski Catamount, and only four miles to the Taconic Parkway. Two hours NYC.
