Old Meets New in this New Paltz Country House, $655,500

updated farmhouse

This New Paltz property is so much more than just a cool, updated farmhouse on over four acres…

In fact, if you’re in the market for your own compound, this 4.3-acre parcel will set you up quite nicely, starting with the main house.

Starting out in 1852 as a simple country farmhouse, the three-bedroom home features an open, Contemporary addition designed by NYC architect David Ling. The great room – complete with concrete, radiant-heat floors – is where the magic really lives, thanks to a wall of glass facing the woods to the west, as well as the backyard.

In the kitchen, you’ll find reminders of the 2,028-square-foot home’s venerable roots, with exposed, rough-hewn ceiling beams and antique cupboard handles and hinges, rubbing elbows with more updated features like black granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.

The master bedroom shares some of that glass-wall goodness…

…and, all the charms of its historic character still stand in the original portion of the house.

But, a main house does not a compound make. You need a couple more houses for that, and this one’s got a fixed-up saltbox cottage and a barn converted into a sweet residence. Use one for guests and one for renting, or rent both!

Situated about 10 minutes’ drive north of New Paltz village, the parcel offers wild surroundings close to great restaurants, boutiques, and live music.
