Description

1865 CLASSIC DELAWARE COUNTY DAIRY FARM: A WALK BACK IN TIME: This unique 40+- acre property comes complete with a 1900 sq ft farmhouse, sap house, carriage barn, 3-car garage and dairy barn, and has been lovingly restored and maintained meticulously. Walking through this property is like walking through a farmers' museum--with all original details intact, yet modernized tastefully to meet today's living standards. The property itself is also quite extraordinary--extended across both sides of a back road, both areas feel quite private and offer quiet enjoyment, whether it is sitting on the covered side of the house porch and gazing off at the distant mountainside, or enjoying the crystal clear waters of a sylvan swimming pond--on the other side of the road, hiking beyond the barn, and across the bridge spanning a pristine rushing stream to access a high meadow with panoramic views. All spectacular but you need to experience it to appreciate it. THE FARMHOUSE: With 1888 sq ft of impeccably restored living space, the 1st floor of the house consists of a large eat-in kitchen (with pine floor, extensive built-ins and original antique appointments), entry foyer (with laundry and built-in storage), a formal dining room (with decorative fir floor, a leaded glass window, and nice wood paneling), a large living room (with decorative fir floor and a leaded glass window), two bedrooms and a full bathroom with a shower, and 50s period appointments; heading upstairs you ascend the chestnut staircase, the trim upstairs is also chestnut. On the second floor, there are an additional three large bedrooms, with fir floors, including the Master with an additional room alcove with extensive closets. The bathroom upstairs is large complete with an antique cast iron clawfoot tub. All the rooms are bright and cheerful, with extensive windows (original wavy glass), and high ceilings. THE SAP HOUSE: All the maple sugaring equipment has been removed, ready to be repurposed as a studio, playroom, or office. CARRIAGE BARN: Used as an equipment shed, or for storage, the lower level was once a calving barn. DAIRY BARN: The milk house is like new (equipment gone), the hayloft has been cleaned out, the barn floor once accommodated 40-50 cows, --in nice condition, but needs the electric to be updated. GARAGE: 3-bay garage in good condition. NOTE: They are currently getting an ag easement off the neighbor who is haying the property, and there is a CRP (Conservation Reserve Program) in place, which is designed to protect the various water courses on the property. Livestock are fenced away from both ponds and the stream, but an underground piped watering system has been provided with troughs which extend to every area of the property, should a buyer wish to have horses or other livestock. The sellers receive $500 per year for this agreement.
