Charming and slightly unusual homestead sits on beautiful slightly sloping 5 acres. The stone foundation was built by Dutch settlers in 1780. Quakers built a house on this first “foundation” in 1880’s and since then it has seen many changes and has been updated to comfortable country living in the 21st Century. Gardens, meadow, woods and wetlands give the feeling of being in deep nature only thirty minutes north of the GW Bridge.
One enters the house via the porch directly into a light, cathedral ceiling, cozy farm kitchen with a bay window facing the garden. The living room opens half-way into a high cathedral ceiling with original support beams. There’s a big stone chimney and a wood burning stove, horizontal windows (6ft high), steeple windows and a comfortable loft, reached via a tiny staircase.
The large master bedroom has a high cathedral ceiling and an open loft. One of the two bathrooms has a clawfoot bathtub. Two small rooms can be made available for hair and makeup or office, private space.
The music studio has a Mason Hamlin Grand piano, Hammond organ and keyboard – use negotiable, would need to be by a professional musician.
There are a variety of interesting spots and perspectives of the land, a barn red cinderblock garage and adjacent guest shack with an adjacent little greenhouse.
The farm scenes in the movie “Our Idiot Brother” directed by Jesse Peretz was shot here.
