Hopewell Farm, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, boasts what is thought to be one of the oldest barns in Orange County, NY.
And, even though the farm dates back to the 1780s, its still standing in fine form, as evidenced by the 3,406-square-foot main house. The Greek-Revival, rocking-chair front porch leads into the foyer, featuring the original staircase, followed by the home’s living room and parlor…
…sporting original, ax-hewn support beams, plank floors, English mantels, and an antique cooking fireplace.
An enclosed sun porch deftly blends the outdoors with the interior…
…and, with five bedrooms and three full baths, there’s no shortage of accommodation for family members, including any adult children still living at home.
Speaking of which, the 7.20-acre property’s Victorian carriage house has been converted into a two-bedroom, two-bath duplex with an additional studio apartment. When the coast is clear and life returns to some semblance of normalcy, rent out the carriage house units to cover your property taxes.
The farm’s most notable feature is its barn, which is believed to be one of the oldest still-standing barns in the entire county. Keep it an historic artifact, or carefully clean it up and transform it into a special event venue.
Situated in western Orange County, the property is close to Hudson Valley wineries, state parks, and both I-87 and I-84.
