Historic Stone Bronck House, Coxsackie, $349,000

  |  March 6, 2012

This is the kind of place we always hope to find whenever we start poking around an old upstate town. Built in 1720 by town founder Pieter Bronck’s family (Bronck as in “Bronx,” which may sound familiar), this Dutch stone house on five acres is breathtakingly restored on the inside, keeping elements of the time period and intermingling them with modern touches.

The fact that a place like this exists for less than a half-million is kind of miraculous, but that’s the nature of Coxsackie. Stunning architecture is everywhere, and living in a piece of history is within completely within reach price-wise. Bronck Mill Road is a beautiful country road just a few miles outside of the village of Coxsackie. Upstate New York’s oldest surviving house, the Bronck Museum and Farmstead, is right down the road.

Property includes an outdoor wood-burning furnace, which could help lower heating costs during the winter. Creek front property right across the road is also for sale, in case the buyer is looking to expand. Additional drool-inducing photos exist here.
