Located in New York's Beautiful Hudson Valley

1897 Victorian farmhouse on 10.1 acres which have been tested and can be subdivided. There is a 1-car basement garage and 2 pole barns. The 1-bay 16X24 building is fully insulated and the 3-bay 32X48 structure has 1-bay insulated and heated. The property has stone walls, large rolling fields and woods with a stream and a pond. The property is mostly wooded with large open fields behind the home.

The 9 room Victorian style home has beautiful hardwood floors with decorative wide chestnut moldings surrounding the windows and doors.

The Library has built in bookcases surrounding an antique roll top desk. There are 2 sets of pocket doors with their original folding keys on 2 walls of this room, separating it from the Living Room on one side and the Formal Dining Room on the other. This room also has an outside entrance, allowing it to be an office, separate from the living quarters.

The beautiful Formal Dining Room has 3 built in hutches. The modern Kitchen has cherry cabinets, JenAir gas stove, gas clothes dryer, dishwasher, refrigerator and clothes washer.

There is a sunny Breakfast Room off the kitchen with large windows, a ventilating skylight and radiant heat under the ceramic tile floor. The windows of this room look out on a native stone patio surrounded by raised flower beds.

The wide, pillared wrap around porch naturally shades the 1st floor rooms, providing cool breezes from the many windows. The yard has mature landscaping including large shade trees: Maples, Chestnut, Evergreens, Mulberries to name a few. It has 4 varieties of lilacs, forsythia, Mock Orange, Rose of Sharon and many perennials. The tree lined U shaped driveway goes down both sides of the house and around the back, between the house and the pole barns.
