Here's one for the Antique Home Lovers out there (we know you're out there!). This charming Hudson Valley farmhouse is full of history and in move-in ready condition. Have you ever driven down a country road that was obviously once a large farm and wondered which house was THE house? Which house was the hub of activity during that romantic era? Here you don't have to wonder, it was this house. This is the original farmstead home of Dubois Road in Wallkill, and it's for sale.
Not everyone is as familiar with Wallkill as they are with Kingston, Woodstock or New Paltz. Wallkill, NY doesn't get all that much search action on google. But it's a lovely place! Sitting in the midst of the Shawangunk Mountains and convenient to New Paltz, Newburgh and Beacon (where you can catch the Metro North Train), Goshen where you can take in the races or take advantage of the bike trail, Stewart State Forest, Mohonk, Preserve, beautiful Minnewaska State Park to the North East and Bear Mountain/Harriman State Park to the South West. According to Mapquest this house is only an hour and 35 minutes from the city by car. That's a pretty easy weekend getaway, and a commute that many people would be willing to make to live in such a gorgeous place. The farmhouse's setting is truly lovely. The manageable 2 acres has park-like landscaping, a two story barn for cars and/or studio space, and a garden shed. There's plenty of space for using this farmhouse as a farmhouse, without the burden of a larger parcel of land.
For an antique home this farmhouse has remarkable space. Over 3200 square feet makes for a roomy interior with great flow that is ideal for entertaining. The wonderful chef's kitchen has an old soul, and yet is the grand feature of the home with high end appliances including a Viking stove and Sub Zero refrigerator, and custom handcrafted cabinets with English farmhouse style. The beamed ceiling, wainscoting, cozy dining area with french doors to a rear patio, and the original king board floors make this space so heartbreakingly beautiful you may not want to leave it. It's so perfectly nostalgic and functional that it might induce you to start baking your own bread! While you bake you can enjoy the view out the double French doors, it seems to go on forever and will keep you connected to the action outdoors (family, guests, birds and squirrels).
Built in the late 1700's with a later addition in the 1860's the home flows with gracious style from room to room and from the main entry hall at its center. The main floor has a formal dining room, a living room with a brick fireplace, a family room which is now used as music room, a private office area, a laundry/bath, and of course, the kitchen. The second level offers a master suite with a private newly remodeled bath, a large home office suitable for use as an extra bedroom, and two additional bedrooms including a nursery, as well as another newly remodeled bath. And of course this home has the feature that is the true mark of an antique home, two staircases. These are perfect for guests and extended family as well as for pretending that you are a romantic hero/heroine. In the basement? A wine room. Just perfect.
