A Little Millbrook Farmhouse with a Big Lush Yard, $299K

This week on Upstater, we’re sifting the listings for pretty yards and landscaping. Here’s a picture-perfect one that comes with this miniature Millbrook NY farmhouse….

Who needs a rambling old farmhouse when you can live in this little beauty? But we’ll talk about the house itself in a bit. First, we need to soak in the gorgeous yard bursting with green…

There’s even an antique unfinished barn on the property. According to the listing, you can’t see it from the house, but quite honestly, we don’t think we would mind seeing it. How would you transform this additional space?

The location itself is in eastern Dutchess County, east-of-Hudson. If you’re the type who values privacy, you’ll find it among this rural environment. Fret not, for civilization is but a hop and a skip away. Millbrook village is about 5 minutes to the west. Or, you can jump on the Taconic State Parkway and head south to NYC, 2 hours from here.

Okay. Now, let’s go inside the three-bedroom cottage. Includes just a hair under 1,000 square feet, so it’s not a huge living space. However, it is laid out in an open way with the first-floor living room/dining room/kitchen flowing into one another.

The three bedrooms are on the second floor, and the listing suggests one of those bedrooms could be an additional bath. New owners could also add onto the house around the back, but don’t worry. There will still be plenty of yard left over to enjoy.
