There’s a whole-lotta-land to go with this historic Wallkill farmhouse…
Hudson Valley’s own Wine Country offers a rural setting close to great communities, all within 90 minutes of NYC. And, Hudson Valley Wine Country offers wine, of course. With nearly a dozen wineries and a handful of distilleries and cider-makers nearby, this 73.6-acre property sits right in the heart of that luscious grape-y-ness.
Originally built in 1772, Ivy Nook Meadow’s farmhouse once played host to a troop review by General George Washington during the Revolutionary War, according to the listing. And, the 3,925-square-foot still bears the details of its age, like Dutch front door with strap hinges and antique lock hardware, as well as wide-board hardwood floors.
There’s also a more recent addition onto the older part of the house, and updates include stainless steel kitchen, first-floor en suite master bedroom, zoned heating, and a two-story office/den wing that could easily be adapted for use as an accessory apartment. Four of the five bedrooms are on the second floor.
The home’s biggest modern upgrade is its solar panel system, which provides electricity to most of the property. Interested in creating an off-the-grid hideaway? This could be the place…
Finally, the property’s pièce de résistance: A huge multi-winged, post-and-beam dairy barn built during the 19th century. Given that the farmhouse dates back to the 18th century, technically, the barn is an update, too!
Part of the land, which is situated in southern Ulster County, has frontage to the Wallkill River, which runs through Ulster to Orange County. Walden and Montgomery are also along the Walkill, and, to the northwest, the beautiful Shawangunk Ridge provides stunning views of the Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountains. These are just some of the reasons why we’ll be spending this week on Upstater sorting through our favorite listings in this area. Stay tuned….
