This quintessential Hudson Valley farmhouse in Stone Ridge’s Rest Plaus Historic district is set on 20+ acres of level farmland bordered by the Rest Plaus Kill, aka Kripplebush Creek, with acreage on the far side as well. It is in, and surrounded by land in the Rondout Esopus Land Conservancy where development is not an option! Enjoy a panoramic view shed with historic stone homes and lots of open sky and tons of light! Watch the local herd of grass fed cows graze or use the fertile land for crops or simply rent the fields for haying! Harvest your own fruits and vegetables from the sprawling fenced vegetable garden or the many fruit trees.This vintage farmhouse, has been lovingly maintained with many upgrades by the current owner, including the refurbished circa 1930’s dairy barn, complete with heated studio, office and storage and sleeping loft spaces. The first floor of the original “Front House” features a living room with working, wood burning fireplace, dining room, library, which could be used in a variety of ways, (office, den, etc.), country style eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances, solid surface counters, open shelving with vaulted ceiling and exposed rafters. Vintage doors lead out onto a stone dining patio overlooking mature landscaping and fields beyond. The upper levels have so much charm and character encompassing three bedrooms/office space and a common area that ties all three together which is currently used as a sitting/media area, but could easily work as a yoga space, play or craft space while all out of view from downstairs living. A half and full bath add convenience to the space. A new addition affectionately called “The Back House” was originally built in 2012 as an in-law suite and features a large, light-filled living room with wood burning fireplace, one bedroom, ample walk in closet, full bath with step in shower and laundry. This area could also be used as an owner’s suite or even an office as it has a separate entrance. The home is listed as three bedrooms but the new addition adds a fourth and any of the cozy three bedrooms in the original or “Front House” could easily be used as an office. One-level living could easily be enjoyed by using the primary suite as bedroom. All needed amenities are on the first level.
