This 1880s Farm house colonial is nestled on 2+ acres of bucolic land adjacent to Hi Tor preserve. This renovated home has been meticulously maintained and preserved embracing the original features while upgrading the systems and structures to modern amenities and renovating the original barn and rebuilding the terraced stone walls surrounding this compound. This antique homestead with original wide board chestnut flooring, chestnut cabinets, with an original wood-burning fireplace with open-hearth predominate the living room, and 2 additional wood burning stoves in the den and primary bedroom fill this home with warmth and charm indicating its historical significance. The newly renovated barn is fully insulated with a new electrical system and the wood stove offers many options for creative home/work options. This unique property has been maintained with pristine attention to detail. The newly restored exterior clapboard siding and stone pathways enter into an expansive great room framed with mahogany beams and original plaster walls with bright south-facing windows opening to the charming kitchen with handmade oak cabinetry, built-in cupboard, and light-filled dining area. The den/office is warm and welcoming with southern exposure and a wood burning fireplace with adjacent guest powder room.

South Mountain Road has always been a haven for creative writers, artists and actors. Original homes once owned by Maxwell Anderson, Lotta Lenya & Kurt Weill as well as John Housemen and Henry V Poor, still predominate this country road transforming the countryside into a quiet refuge only 40 minutes from NYC. A historical treasure for antique conscious buyers who wish to use as a full time or weekend refuge.
