The quintessential country house, built in 1850 and renovated in 2016 offers historic character with all the modern conveniences. The welcoming Living Room of this post and beam constructed farmhouse features a storybook living room with beamed ceiling, Rumford wood-burning floor-to-ceiling exposed brick fireplace and wide-board floors. The eat-in country kitchen is spacious and light-filled with access to a sun drenched deck. There's also a convenient ground floor full-bath. Upstairs, you'll find a vaulted primary bedroom that affords plenty of light. A deck off the primary is the perfect spot for morning coffee. Three additional bedrooms, two adjoining that is perfect for a home office set up or child's room. Second floor bath and laundry. The 2016 renovations includes new windows, plumbing, baseboard heating, freshly painted interior walls, refinished wide-board floors, and restored wood clapboard siding and metal roof. Outside are mature trees, stone outcroppings, an original outhouse (now serving as a garden shed) and a choice of three decks to escape the days stress. A whimsical old hand -pump harkens back to the simpler times of country style living. The easy to maintain 1/2 acre parcel is surrounded by 60-acres of woods. Proposed Hudson-Albany rail trail across the road. Convenient to Hudson, Chatham, and 2 hours NYC. 24-hours notice please.
