Description

Watch the 3D tour here!

This c.1862 Hasbrouck farm house is beautifully sited on an expansive 18.5 acre property with many of the natural features of the celebrated Shawangunk foothills: open meadow land, wooded hillsides, stone walls, quartz conglomerate boulders, a meandering brook, and more.   The home offers complete privacy, as well as that rarity, a historic farm house that is well back from the road.

Originally farmed by the Calvin Hasbrouck family (current owners have receipts for this farm’s produce sold at Union Square Market in the 1870’s), the level farm meadow remains, as does the pond area with stone dam and spillway.  A farm road, now a path, leads to the rear of the property and a lovely view of the village below.  Abutting the Catskill Aqueduct, the property provides a gateway to the majestic Bonticou Crag and the 8000 acres of the vast Mohonk Preserve with its unpopulated trails for hiking, biking and climbing.

Much has been lovingly preserved in this historic home, which was built with generous scale and proportion, as seen in the high ceilings and large windows. Modern luxuries have been added with an eye for minimalism that pays respect to the quality and integrity of the old.  Built into the slope of a hill, the home holds 3 full levels of living, each with its own identity and purpose, offering much versatility, peace, and privacy, as both stairwells can be closed off with doors from the main level. The 3 floors of this spacious 3495 square foot home affords areas that are connected, yet can be private while working or learning from home.

Architectural details tell the history—glowing wide-board wood floors, elegant antique white tin ceilings, paneled wood doors, original moldings, fireplace mantels, and built-in book shelves.  The earliest part of the house with its study, formal living room, foyer, and powder room blends seamlessly with the gourmet kitchen and dining room addition.  The kitchen is done with finely crafted solid maple cabinets and drawers, black granite countertops, Sub-zero fridge and 6-burner Wolf stove.  The main level bedroom, with walk-in closet, opens to the deck through french doors; the ensuite bathroom has a luxurious steam shower, pedestal sink, bidet, and oil finished pine floors.

On the upper level there are three bedrooms, one of which has soaring exposed beams. There is a skylight, full bath, raw wood floors with a soft Danish soap finish, original board and batten doors with latches, artisan finished plaster walls, and walk-in attic storage. Reclaimed barn wood railings line the upstairs landing, which has a meditation/yoga nook.

The walk-out lower level features a large sun-room with floor-to-ceiling insulated windows, slider to stone patio, pine floors, and adjoining half bath/laundry room.  French doors lead to a cozy den featuring a brick fireplace with wood box niche, bluestone hearth, Jotul Woodstove insert, wood beam mantel, and plumbing for wet-bar.

The beauty and tranquility of the setting is enhanced by native perennial plantings including mountain laurel, rhododendron, azalea, irises, lilies, lilacs, and peony and an array of wild and domesticated plants and bushes. The multi-level barn with carport, shed, chicken house, and duck house are available for farming pursuits, while wild mushrooms are simply foraged among the trees. Pears and grapes, wild red raspberry, elderberry and a multitude of edible wild plants are abundantly available.
