A Lovely West Hurley Farmhouse with a Hot Tub: $649K

  |  November 30, 2023

The Hudson Valley is chock-full of lovely old farmhouses, and today’s Upstater pick is no exception.

The country home was built in 1825 in West Hurley, 90 years before its neighbor, the Ashokan Reservoir, was constructed and filled with water for thirsty residents of New York City. The front porch has a stone floor; it’s enclosed by a porch roof and hugged by hydrangeas, other plant life, and a stone wall.

The main floor is understated and elegant with a rich Acadia hardwood floor and cream-colored walls. A wood stove in the center of the living room helps warm the entire house, according to the listing.

This bluestone fireplace steps up to help, too. Rustic ceiling beams add character to the space.

A dining area is off to one side, along a bank of windows.

The ceiling beams continue into the kitchen, which has bright white cabinets and a mix of granite and butcher-block countertops. An aproned, double farmhouse sink has a professional-grade faucet.

A door leads from the kitchen to the backyard. This image shows off the granite-topped center island.

The house has a lot of flexible space, starting with this 25′ by 22′ room that’s currently used as a bedroom but could be a fabulous yoga studio.

This bedroom is painted in muted gray, with a scrubbed hardwood floor.

Both bathrooms in the house have marble floors and wall treatments. This bath has a blue vanity topped with marble.

A separate wing in the home contains the second bath and this bedroom with marble-tile flooring.


This room is another flexible space: Envision it as a guest room, dance studio, anything the new owner could dream up. It has hardwood floors, a single door to the outside, a gambrel ceiling…

…and a double pair of swinging barn doors to open the space to nature.

A French door off that room leads to a bright, sunny office.

The house is on 2.4 acres with stone walls, little pathways, and a wide, screened-in porch.

The porch overlooks a skinny backyard that has a hot tub…

…with its own composite walkway so you don’t get your feet dirty on the way there.

The property is within the woods near the reservoir, and about 20 minutes northwest of Kingston.
