This Germantown country house might look like a 19th-century Gothic farmhouse, but a closer inspection reveals a surprise…

We won’t keep you in suspense any longer: This house is a solid replica of an old-fashioned Victorian farmhouse, but built in 1989. From its rough-hewn ceiling beams to its 18-inch-plank flooring, it mirrors that antique character without the owners having to deal with those pesky old house problems.

The open main floor is awash in natural light thanks to floor-to-ceiling and transom windows, and the living room comes with a brick fireplace. There’s a dining area on the other end…

…as well as a screened-in porch for semi-al fresco meals.

In addition to the home’s three bedrooms, there’s a fourth room could be an extra bedroom, office, media room, or study.

Since this is Renovations Week on Upstater, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the one of the property’s best assets: A fully-renovated barn transformed into a large, two-floor residence/studio with kitchenette.


The 1.7-acre property is located 3 miles north of charming Germantown hamlet in southern Columbia County, NY.
