Post-and-Beam Home with a Big Custom Kitchen, $389K

Portions of this c.1850s farmhouse still remain, including dramatic exposed brick walls. 

Situated in western Orange County, NY, this old-fashioned farmhouse has been added onto in a subtle, non-obtrusive fashion, with the modern portion at the rear, craftily blending in with the rustic/Federal-style facade.
