When we think “Hudson Valley farm,” we picture this 92-acre Dutchess County property.
Currently, this farm is more of a wildlife sanctuary than a working farm, with a wide variety of birds, fish, and furry creatures calling this slice of rural northern Dutchess County home. However, with the right amount of know-how, gumption, grit, elbow grease, and other folksy terms to describe determination, you could put this farm back into production. Utilize the farm’s antique workshop, tractor garage, and equipment sheds to help tend those undulating, crop-ready fields.
This farm dates back to 1860 and comes with a stately Colonial main house with five bedrooms, plank floors, and vintage trim and details.
Simple yet elegant, the 3,316-square-foot interior is big enough to entertain the multitudes, plus a decked-out country kitchen and a Universal Chef commercial cooking range to help keep them all fed and happy.
Meanwhile, overlooking the lake is a vintage barn converted into a six-bedroom, five-bath house with a deck providing water views.
There are other residences here, too, including a two-bedroom apartment above the garage, and an A-frame cottage. Walking trails and old stone walls also wind their way around the mature forests on the property, making it feel like a private nature preserve.
Set off of a back country road, this farm is located in the Dutchess County town of Clinton, NY, close to Rhinebeck village, the Dinsmore Golf Course, the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies, Clinton Vineyards, Millbrook Winery, and Bard College.
