Property Description

On twenty-eight stunning acres of ponds, paths, forest and fields sits a quintessential Germantown farmhouse and one of the oldest and last standing true Dutch barns in the area, renovated to perfection. The compound is westwardly oriented. The structures look out over a large, sun-drenched yard with old growth trees and two ponds to showcase the Catskill range beyond, offering the best seats in the house for sunset on the new 1200 square foot cedar deck. The 2,000 square foot clapboard farmhouse is a 3BD 2.5BA home with original wood floors, a wood stove and an open kitchen with vaulted ceilings, radiant heat & a wall of windows facing the mountains. The incredible c1860 New World Dutch Barn has been completely restored with original brick foundation, wood floors and post and beam structure. This work of art offers 5,000 square feet of loft living space, 2.5 baths, a full kitchen and a finished basement with brick interior walls, soaring ceilings, two brick fireplaces, a standing seam metal roof & top of the line systems. The post and beam structure could be easily converted to include sleeping quarters. One would be hard-pressed to find such a spectacularly renovated New World Dutch barn of this size. A c1910 detached cottage next door that was once the original dairy barn. The cottage includes a kitchenette and full bath making this a perfect family compound or hospitality business. The property offers miles of walking trails that lead to pastures and ponds, and over five acres of fenced in yard. Significant road frontage on both Church and Round Top offers further subdivision and development opportunities. The compound is ideally located 2m to charming Germantown with coffee, specialty shops & Gaskins restaurant. 2h to NYC and 15m to Rhinebeck, Hudson and Amtrak.
