From humble beginnings comes the Modena Farmhouse, a fully-renovated nineteenth-century home on a gorgeous piece of property.
It’s hard to believe that the spiffy, 2,300-square-foot residence used to be a simple shed sitting on a farm that dates back to the 1600s. According to the listing, the shed was added onto and expanded over the years, ultimately resulting in the fabulous, mostly-brand-new farmhouse it is today.
Its original hand-crafted moldings have been kept intact, while updates are abundant, especially where it counts: The electrical, plumbing, heating, windows, doors, and floors are all new…
…and so is the kitchen, which features stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry, and marble counter tops…
…that’s adjoined to a dining room/sun room with access to the side yard.
All four of the home’s bedrooms occupy the second floor, along with a full bath and laundry room, and there’s a full walk-up attic that could be used for storage or renovated into a third-floor office, bedroom, or studio.
All this loveliness sits on 5.4 acres of land populated with old-growth trees, including a century-old Sycamore. The listing boasts that “anything and everything” can be grown on this land, “from black walnuts to horseradish root.” If you’ve got a green thumb, you might love this location.
Speaking of location, it’s situated 3.6 miles east of Gardiner, NY, convenient to the New York State Thruway and New Paltz village.
