“Frozen in time” might be a bit of an exaggeration, but it comes mighty close to describing the condition of this c.1818 farm in the Dutchess County town of Clinton. Sitting on 136 of land in rolling and rural countryside, the farm includes a 2600 square foot main house and 4 beds/2 baths. It needs restoration work, but all of the original elements – wide plank flooring, fireplace, doors – are still present and accounted for, which makes it a perfect choice to finish out our week exploring the Historic Properties of the Hudson Valley and Catskills.
The gorgeous barns and outbuildings make this place a real stunner, with the main post & beam barn that looks…well, if we have to be honest…frozen in time. The listing says the newer barns are outfitted with horse stalls. Land includes old stone walls, tons of fields, woods, and a pond. The property also comes with an easement via the Winnakee Land Trust so that the farm’s historic nature will be preserved for all time.
Located 10 minutes from Rhinebeck village.
