Vail Farmhouse in Goshen, $899,000

  |  April 6, 2012

Consider this a Friday Real Estate Porn bonus track. This property, known as the Vail Farmhouse, was built in 1790. Clearly it’s been lovingly maintained, and the details are in keeping with the history of the property: Four fireplaces, exposed beams, and a pantry with the original Dutch oven. There’s also a stone barn on the property, which is being used as a garage.

It’s sits on an acre, which isn’t much, but it’s bordered by 10 acres of parkland. Located about 2.5 miles from the village, it’s seems fairly secluded, and the taxes on this property are not as jaw-droppingly absurd as some of the other properties we’ve seen.

The price tag is steep, for sure, for a 2800-square foot house on a single acre. But we jumped all over this property because Goshen’s high-end luxury houses consist overwhelmingly of McMansions. Nicely-appointed properties haling from the 18th century are rare find anywhere, and that’s reflected in the price. So with that, here comes the eye-candy:
