This old-fashioned Roxbury farmhouse on four acres comes with its original c.1820s details, plus some updates sprinkled in for good measure.
The post-and-beam construction and plank flooring have been around for as long as this house has been standing. Notches and cut marks remain visible and un-smoothed, lending to its historic nature. Yet, an open-concept, 1,768-square-foot lends itself well to a more modern way of living, with a living room, dining area, and country kitchen amenable to family gatherings.
Separating the living room from the kitchen is a custom-tiled floor….
…and the kitchen features lots of space, stainless steel fridge, and a big farmhouse-style sink…
…all of which is kept warm and cozy by a wood stove.
The home’s two bedrooms are on the second floor. One bedroom is oversized and could be divided into a bedroom/office combo, or made into two separate bedrooms.
A bonus attic room means plenty of space for storage.
Speaking of space, this property is all about space, with lots of land to use or keep wild. The grounds include perennial gardens, raised beds, a storage shed, stone walls, and, perhaps most intriguingly of all, an old family burial plot, behind which flows a babbling spring. Commune with nature from the comfort of the wrap-around front porch, or head out into the wilderness right in your own backyard.
Situated just five miles from the hip and charming village of Roxbury in Delaware County, NY, this spot puts you in the midst of the Catskill Mountains, close to slopes, hiking trails, and stunning mountain views.
