Feast Your Eyes on this Restored Dutch Colonial Mini-Estate, $849K

Color us seriously impressed with this restored c.1773 Dutch stone Colonial surrounded by barns and charming outbuildings.

This property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and features a main house, which is reportedly the oldest house in the town of Plattekill. The house has been extensively renovated, starting back in the 1800s and continuing through to the 1980s, when it was restored and then added onto using an existing stone house from an entirely different property.

Behold its most recent update, complete with modern must-haves like reverse osmosis water system, integrated security systems, programmable thermostats, and a Jotel cast iron stove.

Part of that recent update includes a chef’s kitchen with custom-built cabinetry, AGA Mercury LP range plus electrical convection oven, Sub-Zero refrigerator, and marble counter tops.

Antique details like exposed beams, wood floors, stone walls, iron hinges and hardware, and brick and stone fireplaces hearken back to its origins. Even the Dutch cellar kitchen is still a kitchen with its original beehive oven intact. Above that is a loft space with a half-bath.

The master bedroom might be our favorite room, though…

…and there are three other bedrooms within the 3,796-square-foot interior, as well.

The living history tour continues with the outbuildings, which include New World Dutch stone barn and two other large Dutch barns…

…all surrounded by a 7.2-acre piece of land consisting of rolling meadows, stone wall-enclosed gardens, a fenced pasture, and a private lake.

When you’re ready to the leave the confines of the estate grounds, head north to New Paltz village, or hop across the Hudson River to Poughkeepsie and take the train to NYC. No matter where you go, history will be waiting when you return.
