One of the advantages to Kerhonkson is that there are plenty of places to find your privacy, but you’ll still be relatively close to civilization, even if it feels a million miles away. We find this attractive, the idea of hiding in plain sight. With this circa-1864 farmhouse, you’re less than two miles from Kerhonkson, less than 10 minutes from both Napanoch and Ellenville, and less than a half-hour from High Falls, Stone Ridge, and Rosendale. And yet, the house itself is engulfed by verdant stretches of forest, keeping it completely secluded. We like the colorful cheerfulness of the interior, the old-fashioned touches like barn doors and ceiling beams, and the roomy kitchen with plenty of storage space. The listing boasts that the second floor has 15 foot ceilings. Includes a pool and a bit of land (nearly 3 acres). In spite all of this, it’s still a bit pricey for our budget, and the taxes push it over the edge. But if you can afford it, the setting is lovely.
