Original home of John G. Borden (and his famous cow Elsie). The house is an Ulster County Historic Landmark and is located on approximately 300 acres of farm land which overlook the Shawngunk Ridge. The original portion of the house was built in the late 1700s by the Hasbrouck’s, one of the founding Huguenot families to settle in New Paltz.
The house was later added on to in the mid-19th century and thus features both colonial and Victorian architecture. The downstairs of the home features a renovated marble kitchen, a formal dining room overlooking the mountains, a sunroom, a den with fireplace as well as a formal sitting room (with fireplace) all of which are decorated with antique oriental rugs, heirloom antiques, and recently replaced Schumacher wallpaper.
The upstairs of the house features a master bedroom and bath, three smaller bedrooms and two double bedrooms. All bathrooms as well as the kitchen have been recently upgraded. Additionally the
property features the original “Brick Office” from the 1850s with extremely unique original décor as well as a large fireplace and collection of antique law books.
The house sits on one of the largest undeveloped tracts of farm land in New York State and features spectacular views.
