Step Inside an Artfully Restored Small-Town New York Farmhouse Asking $2.5M

New construction modern farmhouses have certainly taken the design world by storm in recent years, but that’s not to say authentic farmhouses have gone out of style. Take, for example, this circa-1857 farmhouse in Livingston, New York, complete with new updates but still bursting with historic charm. Fitted with traditional touches and wood accents, the home is asking $2.45 million.

Utility-wise, farmhouses are no longer a necessity for most buyers, but the property’s 8.35 acres of land will never be a downside. Across the countryside estate, there is the main home as well as a 1,100-square-foot guest house, rounding out the total interior space to about 2,500 square feet.

Upon first look, the home’s wraparound front porch, copper gutters, and Dutch doors set a quaint tone that carries inside. The first story is packed to the brim with character, holding the updated kitchen, living, and dining spaces. Moving upstairs, there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Simple in their design but cozy nonetheless, the rooms provide ample space for winding down. The separate guest house holds two of its own bedrooms, perfect for additional guests, or even a studio/office in the privacy of the Hudson Valley.

Of course, with ample acreage as a canvas it’s no surprise there’s a gunite pool and entertaining area, as well as endless green space outside. Livingston is only minutes away from Hudson, NY and just over two hours to New York City. Perfect for city-dwellers looking for a weekend retreat or those making the jump to country life, Anthony D’Argenzio and Rachel Haley of Houlihan Lawrence hold the listing.
