  |  June 22, 2021

If you’ve been yearning for a quiet place near a stream, this restored Verbank farmhouse offers 470 feet of Sprout Creek frontage…

…but, that’s not even the half of it. The 1,650-square-foot beauty, originally built in the 1820s, is a masterful restoration, starting with its period exterior with a rocking-chair front porch.

Inside, its nineteenth-century roots are on full display in the form of the original front door, rough-cut support beams, and reclaimed wood…

…while the extent of its modernization most apparent in new floors, fixtures, and the brand-new, stainless-steel kitchen. Behind-the-scenes improvements include the roof, windows, insulation, electric, heating, and ductless air conditioning. Furthermore, the first floor is radiant-heat-ready, should you choose to add that feature later.

…and, up the walnut staircase to the second floor are three big bedrooms, with the primary bedroom sporting a door on a slider…

…as well as vaulted ceilings, ceiling fan, and an en suite bath.

Take in the 1.21-acre lot from the privacy of the spacious back deck…

…or plant yourself creek-side with pals and get the firepit going. The property is located in central Dutchess County, NY, just east of the Taconic State Parkway. If public transportation is your jam, the Poughkeepsie train station is about a 20-minute drive away.
