This Hopewell Junction farmhouse made of stone and cement dates back to at least the mid-1800s, and maybe even earlier.
Who’s in the mood for some fabulous farmhouses in the Hudson Valley and Catskills? Here at Upstater, we’re always ready for that, so this week, we’ve delving into the listings for our favorites. Our first stop is Hopewell Junction, situated in southeastern Dutchess County.
Sitting just 90 minutes north of NYC but feeling like a million miles away, the farmhouse’s exterior is most distinguished by its stone side, which, according to the listing, might date back to the 1700s and served as a caretaker’s house to a dairy farm. Inside the 1,900-square-foot interior, old-fashioned features abound in the form of exposed beams, stone walls, plank flooring, and two fireplaces, one in the living room…
…and the other in the dining room where it once served as the home’s main cooking fireplace.
Adjacent to the formal dining room is a comfy, wood-paneled family room/den…
…and, off the galley kitchen is a sunny mud room.
In addition to two bedrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs…
…there’s also a second-story sleeping loft, along with two full and remodeled baths on either floor.
Off the stone side of the house is an expansive deck, which overlooks the sun-dappled 4.3-acre picturesque property, tucked-away in the woods.
Have we piqued your appetite for more fabulous farmhouses? Stay tuned for more this week on Upstater!
