Love Vintage Farmhouses? This c.1840 Home in Columbia County will Knock your Socks Off, $379,000

  |  April 5, 2017

Here’s a farmhouse of a different color located in rural Columbia County, just west of the Taconic State Parkway. And, after looking at oodles upon oodles of white/off-white/white with trim/mostly white farmhouses in this part of the Hudson Valley, we find the slate-grey exterior of this 1840s home is a breath of fresh air. Also a breath of fresh air? The sunny interior that maintains a firm grasp on the home’s past.

Home includes 1200 square feet + 2 beds/1.5 baths and could be considered small when it comes to its Rural Columbia County surroundings, but thanks to a bevy of windows, the house seems to breathe with space, and the dining room/kitchen create a big room for friendly mealtimes. Dining room sliding glass doors open onto the back deck. Original features include hardwood floors, exposed ceiling beams, and hardware. Wood stoves in living room, dining room, and on the second floor. That is the nice thing about a small house: It’s easier to heat.

Sits on nearly two acres of land that spans both sides of water street in the heart of Columbia County farm country, right next to the Claverack Creek. Located 15 minutes from Hudson city and the Hudson River.
