Renovated Toll House in Phoenicia, $270,000

  |  January 30, 2013

Built in 1850, this Esopus Creek waterfront property was the Terrace Farm inn Bed and Breakfast back during the turn of the century. And there it sat on Main Street in Phoenicia, paint slowly peeling away, yard overgrown, until it was beautifully restored in 2009. Now it’s for sale at a price that’s leaving us a little mystified. Less than $300,000? Could that be right?

It’s situated right on the banks of the Esopus, yet seems to have escaped any serious harm during recent floods. The view from just about every room is quite stunning, which makes up for the fact that the house is located right on Main Street, front door inches from oncoming traffic (it is a toll house, after all).

Lot size is two acres, and think of all the fun you can have in the creek when the weather turns hot. It’s 3,300 square feet, 3 beds/3 baths, and most rooms contain a wood-burning stove or fireplace. Take a moment to check out the virtual tour. It’s worth it to use your mouse to spin around and see all 360 degrees of every room in the house. Just don’t get dizzy and fall down.

The listing on the real estate agent’s page doesn’t reveal much, but we’ve included it below for contact purposes. If you want to see more information on the house, you can find it here.
