A Fixer-Upper Farmette in Pine Plains for $175K

  |  February 3, 2023

We’re north of Poughkeepsie today but still in Dutchess County, at a “farmette” that’s a bit over five figures.

This house was built in 1850. The 1,088-square-feet, two-story interior has been completely gutted, so it’s just about as clean a slate as you can get.

The exterior still needs a lot of work.

The inside is bright with lots of windows.

This is a good opportunity to try your hand at innovative insulations, like hempcrete, and energy-saving heat/ventilation systems.

The house has great bones, as can be seen in this upper-story room. The house is framed out for two bedrooms and one bath.

It’s a true “eyebrow Colonial,” so named for these wide, shallow windows.

There’s a three-seater outhouse and a barn on the one-acre property, all connected with pathways through the grass.

And the listing says there’s a cookhouse with a fridge, stove, and oven, too. The property is on a hill overlooking wetlands, so you’re sure to spot lots of birds and wildlife. It’s on the edge of the village of Pine Plains, and 10 minutes to the Taconic.

If this farmette has you dreaming of gardens, chickens, and other vintage fantasies, check out 144 North Main Street, Pine Plains, with Ann Simmons of Compass Realty.
