Once you see the nine-acre parcel of land that surrounds this saltbox Colonial cottage, you may not want to go inside.

The good news is, you won’t be disappointed in the 1,579-square-foot interior when you do decide to head indoors. Before we do that, though, let’s take a sun-drenched tour of the grounds, which is sure to enchant as soon as you pull into the driveway…

…and will continue as you pass the fenced-in garden beds and adorable purple potting shed….

…and over to the babbling Stone Church Brook that cuts through the property.

When you finally decide to head inside the main house, you’ll be greeted by a well-preserved, c.1810 home with old-fashioned hand-tooled support beams, wood floors, brick fireplace…

…and three bedrooms, one of which is the airy master suite with vaulted ceilings and big picture windows.

Oh, but the main house isn’t all you get with this property. Also included is a stream-side garage/studio/guest house with its own deck and cozy wood stove.

Those looking to establish a small, sustainable homestead in the Hudson Valley might find potential in the 32-by-22-foot pole barn, sheep barn, multiple sheds, and that fenced garden depicted above. Bring your chickens, goats, and organic farming skills and plant them here in this bucolic setting, just two hours from NYC.
