A Federal-Style Stone Farmhouse in Cornwall: $999K

  |  February 21, 2024

The Carvey-Gatfield House in Cornwall is on the National Register. Built in 1800, the Federal-style stone farmhouse is simply gorgeous.

The price tag on this Orange County property just skirts a million dollars – but it’s got two one-bedroom guest houses and has been beautifully maintained and updated.

The interior of the main house is clean and elegant. Sleek hardwood flooring covers the entry and flows from room to room.

Pocket doors slide open to this parlor, which has a stone fireplace.

Another fireplace—this one brick—appears in the kitchen (in case you’re wondering, we agree that the furniture here looks virtually staged). It’s a great mix of old and new, with cabinets in a crisp white and appliances shining in stainless steel. You can see the deep, recessed windows that are consistent through the house, too.

Here, the virtual staging has been removed; the kitchen is large and inviting, with room for an island or just a dining set under that triplet of pendant lighting.

A modern, Edison chandelier hangs in this office (also virtually staged) that has a brick fireplace and silver-painted radiators.

The laundry room is huge, with a checkerboard floor, tons of cabinetry, and a folding counter.

A secondary staircase is at the back of the house, in front of a door leading to the back porch.

The property has a total of six bedrooms, four of which are in the main house. This one has great windows, a brick fireplace, and a nice wood floor.

Head up the main stairs to a floor that’s dedicated to a primary suite. It’s been beautifully modernized, with a sliding barn door to the ensuite bath.

The ceiling is super-high here, and a wood stove keeps things toasty. The floor is painted gray, and the walls are a neutral tone. French doors open to a sitting room…

…and a walk-in closet with a modern chandelier.

The bathroom is refined and modern. A sleek, black-and-white vanity is topped with a slab-like porcelain sink, backed by shapely, green Fireclay tiles.

The tub/shower area is half-glassed and lined with a mix of white subway tile and the green tile.

This is the first of two guest houses.

The second one is a bit bigger.

Each has one bedroom and one bath, along with modernized interiors.

Luckily, vintage touches remain, such as knotty pine floors and slatted walls and ceilings.

This kitchen is very retro, from the checkerboard floor to the built-in corner cupboard.

A clawfoot tub and updated floor and wall tile, as well as fixtures, prove the dedication to fine style here.

Two and a half acres of property include this firepit on a rocky area of lawn.

And a red barn brings the farmhouse feel full circle.

It’s a six-minute drive from here to Storm King Art Center. And a minute more brings you to the center of the village of Cornwall-on-Hudson for a reliable, tasty cup of joe at 2Alices Coffee Lounge.
