On the edge of a bucolic country road, enjoy quintessential country living. This historic Hudson Valley farmhouse was originally built in 1786, and restored lovingly in 2006 to maintain its historic pedigree with the addition of modern amenities and a chef's eat-in kitchen with an open floor plan. With central air and radiant heating throughout, it is toasty in the winter and cool in the summer; all electric and plumbing were updated in the renovation. This charming home boasts many interesting historic characteristics such as hemlock wide plank flooring, a dining room fireplace and hearth, and exposed hand hewn beams throughout. Beautiful landscaping distinguished by mature perennial plantings and a koi pond complete this picture perfect homestead. Low energy costs and self-sufficient living is possible with solar panels ($36,000 solar system was installed in 2016), a wood stove, organic vegetable gardens (mature rhubarb and asparagus beds) and fruit trees. For horses or other small animals, there are 3 paddocks, 2 run-in sheds, a chicken coop and two functional barns on the property; also great access to many local riding trails.
