That Rambling Old Farmhouse of Your Dreams? It Exists in Cold Spring, NY

  |  February 13, 2019

Nestled into the eastern edge of the Hudson Highlands, this Cold Spring Colonial farmhouse brings some of that good old yesteryear charm to the table. 

Multiply this 7.8-acre property’s charm by 1,000,000 for its attractive location alone. It’s just over an hour to NYC by way of the Saw Mill Parkway from here, but it’s going to feel like you’re practically inhabiting another planet thanks to its picturesque surroundings on the Foundry Brook.

But, more on those surroundings in a moment. First, the farmhouse. The venerable beauty dates back to the 1860s and is fit for a large family with four bedrooms, three baths, and 2,361 square feet.

Three big fireplaces should keep it warm and toasty, not to mention in touch with its origins. Original plank and hardwood floors are also still in place, as as well as its built-ins and paned glass windows.

The kitchen, which is adjacent to the main floor’s second sitting room, includes tile floors and a built-in corner pantry.

What brings it home for us is the backyard waterfall that feeds into a pond, complete with a footbridge and stone retaining walls. Imagine the picnics you could have here during the spring, without even having to leave the confines of your own little Cold Spring Paradise. Speaking of which, according to the listing, this property can be bought with a second contiguous home on a 10-acre parcel, for a total of two houses on 25 acres. We don’t know about you, but that sounds like “compound” to us!
