Enchanting restored 18th century farmhouse nestled on a dead-end country lane with a special building lot directly across the road – totaling 9.6 breathtaking landscaped acres. This combination of antique farmhouse of provenance and new home site in a most desirable location is a unique find, initially enabling a quiet retreat, eventually becoming a country compound with endless possibilities for family and friends. Build a new dream home on the groomed ready lot that overlooks a trout stream and protected valley views, with electric buried and gated entry. The classic farmhouse and barn are a tranquil reminder of the peaceful farm life, charmingly located among huge old maples, stone fences, gardens, and brook. The architectural gem has authentic early detail and perfect proportions – three fireplaces, wideboard floors, original mantels, doors, windows, trim, and hardware. The original front door with sidelights leads to a wide center hall and formal living and dining rooms. The updated kitchen has Sub-Zero fridge and Viking range, overlooks a gathering room with wood stove and a cozy breakfast area all with exposed beams. French doors open to a charming back patio. Upstairs are two generous bedrooms and a full bath with soaking tub. In addition, there is a 600 sf attic space with rough plumbing, waiting to become a primary suite. The side entrance leads to a mud room/hall and a full bath with laundry. Enter through a garden courtyard enclosed by a high wooden fence and antique barn. The 18′ x 28′ barn has potential for living or studio space. Tucked away in an area of upscale homes in scenic Hillsdale, the property is equidistant to Hudson and Great Barrington and all Berkshires offerings, a short ride to Hawthorne Valley Farm Store and School, and only four miles to the Taconic Parkway.
