This Delaware County estate might be the most stylish farmhouse this side of the West Branch…
This week on Upstater, we’re talking low taxes, and they don’t get much lower than Delaware County. Take, for example, this Walton farmhouse, situated on over 100 acres of land resplendent with mountain views. The property taxes for 2017 were less than $6000.
Now that we have your attention, let’s take a look at the interior. There’s room to spare with 3000 square feet, four bedrooms, and a multitude of communal spaces. The design scheme embraces its 1840s roots with rough-hewn exposed wood beams, oak staircase, and knotty pine walls. Details like built-ins in the living room and kitchen are more than functional; they’re eye-catching.
You could also feed an army in that kitchen and dining room. Speaking of which, they house may look antique, but it doesn’t skimp on the upgrades like Dacor six burner cookstove and Kohler farmhouse sink in the kitchen; central air-conditioning, and heated with forced hot air using either wood burning stove or heating oil; and high-efficiency on-demand hot water system as well as an advanced water filtration system.
Fun fact about this house: The owner is an avid restorer and nearly every design element is either reclaimed or repurposed. Materials like the old front porch, a tin ceiling reclaimed from a tavern on the Delaware River, wood from the property’s barn, and old green house shades factor into fixtures in the house. The listing includes 100 pictures, all of them worth seeing.
Located just outside of Walton village in western Delaware County. The property is farm-worthy with a number of out buildings, sheds, and, of course, lots and lots of land. Non-farmers, don’t worry. Just tend the organic vegetable garden and bask in all that space.
