Farmhouse on acre after acre with Hudson River frontage! That's the ultimate dream right? They are fewer and more far between than you might imagine. But we have one! On 57 acres, which is kind of unheard of on the river at this price range. This is my "Pick of the Week". Great original features, wide board floors, authentic antique farmhouse wallpaper, a BUNGALOW where you can stash your guests, and of course,the views, views, views! Here's the video:

(if you click and get a broken link that means this listing has sold! But of course we can help you find another one.)

It's in Ulster Park which unless you're from Ulster County you may not have heard of. Ulster Park is about 12/15 minutes out of Kingston, NY which has been touted as the new Brooklyn. What Hudson Valley town hasn't right? I think that in the case of Kingston the touters might have it right. Kingston has a vibrant art scene, great outdoor activities, fantastic food, a farmers market, amazing buildings; I could go on and on. I really love being a part of the "Kingston Scene".

I have lived on the Hudson River for 15 years now and there is nothing like the Hudson River lifestyle.  Hudson River farmhouses do not come on the market often and when they do, they don’t sit waiting for a buyer.

I live in a 130 year old farmhouse (the pic at the top of this article is my house) on the Hudson that once was one of the brick companies that thrived along the river in Kingston. The Ulster County side of the Hudson faces East and I wake up to some of the most glorious sunrises on the planet.  I also get spectacular moonrises - sometimes the moon reflects off the river which brings about a light phenomena all its own.  There are plenty of things to photograph in the Hudson Valley, but my phone and memory cards are packed with sun and moonrise photos taken from the comfort of my own porch. See my slide showfor some more of my favorites.

              

Hudson Valley farmhouses are my favorite types of homes here in Ulster County.  Each has its own unique vibe and architectural style dependent upon exactly when it was built, which town it's in and how much or little it has been "improved" over the years. I love wandering through looking at the architectural details and imagining the craftsmen who concentrated for hours on a single doorway or window trimming.  I get to show clients all sorts of real estate, but when I have a client looking for a farmhouse or something on the river...that's the sweet spot of Real Estate for me!

Here are some of my favorite farmhouses that are available for sale right now. This one is in Hurley on more than 8 acres of privacy…

Here's our community page so you can learn a little more about the Town of Hurley NY for more information, (I am partial to Hurley because I share its name).

Here is another farmhouse just outside of town in Woodstock.  It’s on almost 9 acres and comes with a barn that is over 1,500 square feet and very cool!

This is a great farmhouse in Saugerties on more than 7 acres and with a 2,550 square foot barn!  I really think that Saugerties one of the strongest real estate markets in the Hudson Valley right now.

One last farmhouse GEM? Ok…(now that I’m all farmhouse tickled).

This is a CLASSIC 1920 farmhouse outside the village of New Paltz on over 19 acres of gorgeous Hudson Valley land.


DETAILS AND PICS HERE: New Paltz Farmhouse
Here is the New Paltz community page with everything you need to know about New Paltz…

Most people know New Paltz for the Mohonk Mountain House.  It’s the best place to go hiking, have an amazing dinner, or even stay at the hotel and feel like you are living in another, grander era.  It really is one of the most special places to visit here in the Hudson Valley!

Please call or email me with any questions about these or any other Hudson Valley property you want more information about.
