Already paying $2,000-per-month or more in rent for an apartment? Move into this Port Jervis farmhouse, instead.

If you’ve been suffering from those Inadequate Apartment Kitchen Blues, take heart, for in western Orange County, NY sits this c.1800s home with a positively massive kitchen. Back in 2009, the it received a full renovation to include pecan cabinets and a butcher block island, slate counter tops, and stainless steel appliances. The original pine board flooring, however, was left in place.

Off to one side of the kitchen is a large mud/laundry/pantry room with its own sink and faucet…

…and, off to the other side is the formal dining room, which also still sports its original pine floors, as well as a brick fireplace and exposed beam ceilings. Together, the kitchen and dining make up a large portion of the first floor, along with a living room…

There are five bedrooms here in the 2,364-square-foot interior, plus three bathrooms. The master bedroom occupies the first floor of the home’s attached wing, while the second floor of the main house includes a bedroom and a large bonus room/fifth bedroom. Meanwhile, the second floor addition comes with two more bedrooms, closets included.

The home’s windows, roof, whole-house generator, solar panels/power, and six a/c and heat pumps are all new.

What really makes this home a bargain, though, is the fact that it sits on nearly four acres of land with a fenced-in yard accessible through the kitchen’s mud room. Dreaming of a pool? There’s plenty of room here.

The property is located near the NY/NJ border, about a 15-minute drive to Port Jervis and the train station there. NYC is about 90 minutes away.
