And now for something completely different: A former grist mill transformed into a private residence…with millworks still intact!

However, this isn’t just run-of-the-mill mill. This c.1721 structure is now a country estate, complete with a main residence over 5,300 square feet in size. Its Otter Kill Creek-side location makes it a peaceful property, tucked away behind a stone and wrought-iron gate.

Over the years, this property has gone through a number of restorations, making it a character-filled residence with wood floors, stone fireplace with wood stove insert, and a modernized kitchen with stainless steel appliances. While the house looks to be in decent shape, structurally speaking, you might want to update some aspects (carpeting, wallpaper, flooring, etc.) to give it a fresh look.

What we love about this house is all the extras that come with it. In fact, this week on Upstater, we’ve been featuring properties with extra houses, guest houses, and barns on the property…and this one includes an additional 1,500-square-foot, two-unit guest house attached to the main house by a sprawling deck.

But, that’s hardly where the extra features end. The 27.5-acre property sculpture garden with hand-made gazebo, in-ground pool, and a basketball court. When you’re not taking dip or lounging on the deck or gazebo, wander down the steps to your own private waterfall on the creek.
