This Chester horse farm and stone house offer the complete package: Historic charm, lots of room, and a caretaker’s cottage. 

While we’re spending the week in Warwick, NY, we thought we take a short jog north to Chester, NY, where we found this singular property ideal for those whose interests lie in the realm of the equestrian.

Situated on 193 acres of land, the farm dates back to 1854, and the nine-bedroom main residence holds onto the charms of the time period, meticulously-preserved by its owners. The covered front porch enters into the 6,204-square-foot home with a living room, parlor, Georgia pine floors, and two staircases.

Did you catch the part where we said there were nine bedrooms in this home? Still need more? The walk-up attic has potential for three more bedrooms, plus hand-hewn beams, and, the back staircase of the house leads to the a room that was once the maid’s quarters.

Additionally, the property comes with two more residences: A two-bedroom caretaker’s apartment on the second floor of the 11-stall horse barn, and this charming stucco cottage with a brick chimney and stone retaining walls.
