The Fanciest Modern Farmhouse This Side of the Taconic Parkway, $2.5M

  |  March 12, 2019

Built in 2008, this Columbia County modern farmhouse looks like an old-fashioned Cape Cod.

But, there’s nothing old-fashioned about its timeless features. After all, features like a wrap-around front porch, dormer windows with charming shutters, high ceilings, gleaming chestnut floors, and hand-rustic wood beams never go out of style…

…and the same goes for light-filled spaces, which this 3,174-square-foot home has in abundance.

Another feature that never goes out of style? A decked-out kitchen with a football field’s-worth of granite-topped counter space, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, and a spacious breakfast nook. The kitchen remains open to the two-story living room with dramatic stone fireplace and open second floor landing.

Rounding out the first floor is the master suite…


…while upstairs, there are two large bedrooms, plus a finished attic with cathedral ceilings that would work as a family room, play room, home office, or studio.

When warm weather rolls around, throw open the double doors to a stone patio and bask in this gorgeous indoor/outdoor area…

The 50-acre lot also comes with a swimming pond, cabin, enclosed garden with storage, and a separate workshop/studio.

This fancy farmhouse is located in central Columbia County and just a few minutes from the nearest exit onto the Taconic State Parkway, which should put you in NYC in under two hours if traffic cooperates. This is a rural area, but Hudson city is about 20 minutes away for your shopping/eating/culture fix. It’s the closest Amtrak station, too.
