The town of Saugerties is named for a Dutch translation of “little sawyer,” referring to sawmill operators in the mid-1600s. The hamlet of Dutchtown is an ode to the town’s beginnings, and that’s where Upstater finds today’s sprawling estate.
The main house dates back to 1804, and measures 1,762 square feet. Giving off classic farmhouse vibes, it’s got a wraparound, covered porch and a full-dormered second story. Gray siding and white trim blend well in the woodsy setting.
Rich wood dominates the interior, with pine flooring and similar woods in the staircase and overhead beams.
The living room is right off the entry and has a doorway to the dining room.
A wood stove next to the dining room heats the entire home, according to the listing.
The kitchen includes a wall of handmade cabinets with Early American iron hardware and hinges. The countertop matches the cabinetry’s woodgrain. The almond, white, and black appliances could probably use an upgrade.
The first floor has a bedroom with a wood floor, closets with doors that match the kitchen’s craftsmanship, and sliders to the outside.
A half bath is on the main floor, as well. Wood paneling covers the walls and ceiling.
Upstairs is a vinyl-tiled landing that’s a good space for an office.
There are two bedrooms up here. This one has handmade doors and a wood-look laminate floor.
This bedroom also has a closet, and blue carpeting.
The bathroom has a shower stall; a handmade wood vanity; a shelf above the toilet…
…and a clawfoot tub next to a laundry area.
The house’s 24.6 acres are meant for fun, as seen in the horseshoe pits next to this outdoor pavilion.
The pavilion has a kitchenette, too.
A two-story, 45′-by-50′ barn offers more storage and entertainment space.
There’s room for work…
…room for fun…
…and a loft in which to sleep it all off.
This property has the best of both worlds, located halfway between Woodstock and Saugerties: It’s just 10 minutes to dinner at Silvia, and nearly the same distance east to a hot cuppa and a novel at Inquiring Mind Bookstore & Cafe.
