This private park-like parcel in Ulster County, NY comes with a rustic-yet-comfortable Victorian country house flanked by cedar trees. 

We are simply gaga over gardens this week, and seeing the lush vegetation surrounding this c.1870s five-bedroom Victorian house is just what our winter-weary eyes needed. If you’re possessing of a green thumb, the 7.8-acre lot will provide plenty of space to turn into the ultimate gardening project of your dreams, or keep the growing small, and let the rest remain grassy open meadows. Oh, and is that an apiary we see? Any budding beekeepers out there?

The human digs are pretty good, too, and consist of a 2,552-square-foot interior with farmhouse plank floors, exposed ceiling beams, and embossed tin ceilings in the expansive formal dining room. Indoor plants will love the big window…
