A C.1780 Colonial in Walden: $600K

  |  April 16, 2024

It’s a nice surprise to find an older home that meshes vintage details with modern twists. Today’s Upstater pick in Walden does that well.

It’s a c.1780 Colonial —not easy to find in this part of Orange County—with a Federal-style exterior of brown wood siding accented with white door sidelights, windows, and a Juliet balcony on the second floor. We adore those eyebrow windows at the tippy-top.

Hello, 1700s! This room—despite the blocky brick hearth—breathes air from nearly 500 years ago in those rustic, hand-hewn ceiling beams.

The kitchen echoes that heartbeat with a full ceiling that most likely lived through the Revolution (a slight exaggeration, but not far off, we’d bet).

Shaggy gray carpeting coats the center-hall staircase, but it’s forgiven by the sinuous railings.

A bright sunroom separates the center hall from the Juliet balcony.

The second-floor living room is thickly carpeted, but the home’s good bones come through in the sleek fireplace. An interesting border treatment covers the cornflower-blue walls at ceiling height.

This bedroom looks inviting with its knotty pine floors and six-over-six windows.

The ensuite bath has a tub/shower and a cute lil vanity.

It’s kinda next-level when your walk-in closet has its own closet.

This third-floor room shows off wide-plank floors and lots of book storage.

Double-ditto for this space.

The house measures 2,426 square feet and sits on 4.8 acres.

It’s got a lot of outbuildings, too.

Like this one, outfitted like a guesthouse.

The requisite red barns make an appearance, too.

This property is just five minutes from house-made brews and the best music around at Big Dogs Brewery.
