At just 150 years young, this Amenia Colonial farmhouse in pristine condition doesn’t look a day over 75.

There must be some kind of magic anti-aging pixie dust that got sprinkled around this c.1870 (or maybe c.1790, according to the listing?!) farmhouse in rural Dutchess County. Or, more likely, its owners took great care in keeping it in good condition so that it could continue to be a comfy home for years to come. Now, it can be yours for a monthly mortgage that might beat most rent prices even in upstate New York.

Old-world details include hardwood floors, wood trim, living room fireplace, and second-floor plank flooring. Updates like new roof, gutters, furnace, hot water heater, oil tank, and reinforced basement beams bring the 1,824-square-foot home into the next century.

Three bedrooms and two baths make it family-friendly, and an expansive 3.11-acre lot makes this property ideal for someone who likes to loaf around outside, tending to the black walnut and pear trees, black raspberry bushes, and flower and veggie gardens.

Amenia, NY, situated in eastern Dutchess County, feels like secluded countryside but in reality is convenient to two stops on the Metro-North line, as well as the Taconic State Parkway. It’s also a hop and a skip across the border to Connecticut and two hours’ drive from NYC. You’d never know it based on this idyllic scene…
