Simple White Hilltop Farmhouse
Simple white farmhouse atop small hill surrounded by pastoral Callicoon farm country. Records say this farmhouse with it cross gabled roofline dates back to 1846.
Over the years it’s been updated with new roof, new well, modern bath,new windows, insulation, oil heat. With updating came some “improvements” that may warrant tweaking: uncovering more of the old wood floors now hiding under carpet in a few rooms, reconfiguring the small kitchen, changing some light fixtures.
Original house had shutters, maybe add those back...But at this price, and on this lovely land, replete with large English barn, this 5(or 6)bedroom house with it’s brick fp, big LR and DR, is a pretty engaging opportunity!!
Stone and brick front porch has an inviting porch swing. Sit and enjoy mesmerizing tranquil view. Feel welcomed into central stairway. LR to your right, Den/BR to the left. Part of LR wall is the floor to ceiling bead board built in pass-thru cabinetry and hutch that finds its other side opening in the DR. From DR you can access the flagstone floor multi windowed sunporch.
Five BRS upstairs and addt’l insulated room waiting your finishing touches. Walk up to third floor 2 room attic.
Romantic land. Apple trees, old growth lilac bushes, stone patio up near barn, fields for gardens and/or your pony, stone side entry steps w/lamp post and flowers. Easy jaunt to Callicoon, Jeffersonville, Bethel. Yet worlds away from hustle and bustle.
