This generously spaced 1880 farmhouse on 27+/- usable acres is being offered for the first time in 50 years! Perched up on a knoll with mountain views to the south and surrounded by serene meadows and woods this gem has been greatly maintained with tasteful updates while keeping the integrity of its historic character intact. The residential part of the first floor invites you to entertain and relax in elegant spaces with tall ceilings and adorned with beautiful woodworking and original detail. The living room connects to an inviting cook’s kitchen winged by a glass encased dining room. Retreat to the family room to watch a movie or read a good book. Five bedrooms on the second floor, again with high ceilings and an abundance of windows, some with mountain views. Updated upstairs bath with tub and shower and comfortable radiant floor heat. Additional 1.5 bath on the first floor, and a large laundry room with sink. Off the grandiose foyer is the access to the 675 sq ft professional suite with several rooms, half bath and separate entrance. The walls here can be removed to restore the original layout, and behind one of those walls appears to be a hidden fireplace. Continue using it as an office or convert it back to additional living space. A mountain-facing stone porch was added in 1929 by the front entrance and later a bluestone patio and fenced garden area in the rear. Open the gate and find yourself in the shade of gorgeous trees and walk on towards the pastoral open landscape that makes you take a deep breath of freedom. To your right is a full-size croquet court right behind the three -car garage and small barn that could be restored to the artist’s studio it once was. Perfectly situated between Rosendale, High Falls and Stone Ridge, only 15 minutes to Kingston and New Paltz. This is a special place on earth and ready for its new steward! Selling on 27+/- acres, the house is on 4 acres and there is a separate 22.6 vacant parcel. Beautiful!
