Down a stone pathway in the historical hamlet of Barrytown, we find a slice of history in an 1860's era farmhouse with two original barns. Sporting authentic detailing throughout, part of this property was once used as a blacksmith's shop and local general store. All year views of the foothills of the Catskill Mountains can be enjoyed from the expansive front veranda which provides the perfect place to relax, entertain, read or to have morning coffee and enjoy nature at its best. Surrounded by rolling farmland and winding country roads, this archetypal home features a large open-plan kitchen with built-in pantry and plenty of windows that let the outside in. The spacious upstairs bedrooms filter natural light through picture-frame windows. The organic beauty of real hardwood floors flows throughout. On the grounds one of the barns is currently used as roomy two-story artist's studio while the other conveniently and easily serves as a two-car garage. While the serenity of this piece of history is not disturbed, it is close to the town of Rhinebeck, the Rhinecliff Amtrak station, Bard College, the Empire State Hiking and Biking Trail, Red Hook, Tivoli, and Kingston. Multiple farm stands, antique shops and excellent restaurants are found throughout the countryside and nearby towns. Close to NY State Thruway and Taconic Parkway. This one-of-kind home and grounds is ready and waiting for you to experience your own slice of time. Square footage is based on Dutchess County Tax property records and the Agent's measurements.
