This Poughquag Colonial farmhouse is part of a dreamy Dutchess County homestead that includes a guest house and an antique two-story barn. 

In search of a hobby farm? Here’s one situated on two acres of land, which is plenty big enough for elbow room. Meanwhile, if you don’t fancy a high-maintenance farm situation, two acres is damn-near perfect. You know what else is perfect?

The fabulous four-bedroom main farmhouse (this is Fabulous Farmhouses Week, after all) dating back to the 1850s that sits on those two acres. With 4,608 square feet, the interior contains a multitude of gathering places, as well as plenty of room to go be alone.

The house is comprised of an original portion, which is where you’ll find the the sitting room and parlor, as well as a newer addition which contains the huge kitchen, dining room, home office, and spiral staircase that leads to a second-floor master suite.

There are also three other bedrooms in the older portion, plus another full bath.

Use the accompanying guest cottage as short-term rental income, or invite the family to come visit, and give them their own private digs complete with a wood stove and kitchen.

The barn certainly intrigues with its myriad possibilities. Special event space? Second/new primary residence? Massive guest quarters? Art studio and gallery? Music studio? We could go on, but you get the idea: Fabulous-ness abounds.

Poughquag is in eastern Dutchess County, NY, just a few miles from the Connecticut border, about a half-hour drive from Poughkeepsie.
