Here’s your chance to own a little piece of history in the sleepy hamlet of Callicoon Center, New York. With beautifully maintained grounds, charming barn and separate studio space, this sunny bluestone-clad farmhouse offers ample room to stretch your legs and your imagination! A split rail fence surrounds this corner lot with its mature apple, pear and cherry trees, enclosed vegetable garden and two solar panels.
There is a formal front entrance through the spacious foyer, but there’s no need to stand on ceremony at this country house. The inviting side porch door off the driveway beckons you into the spacious eat-in kitchen with ample stainless steel counter space and center island. Custom cabinets and built-in bench provide plenty of storage. A refrigerator, gas range and dishwasher provide the necessary accoutrements to round out this cook-friendly kitchen.
A door off of the kitchen leads you up to the bright and inviting second floor sunroom. Enclosed by large windows that look out on the gorgeous grounds, this three season, white-washed space is ideal for your morning coffee, afternoon catnap, or evening cocktail hour. It might just end up being your favorite room in the house.
Passing through the foyer from the kitchen to the sun-filled living room, the bluestone fireplace provides the perfect focal point for cozy nights in. This large gathering space has ample room for multiple seating areas, as well as an alcove space currently used for a small office area. The east facing windows let in beautiful morning light year round. Sliding glass doors lead to the deck with room for an outdoor dining table.
Also on the first floor is one full bathroom with walk-in shower and a laundry room with washer and dryer.
The second floor boasts four spacious bedrooms located off a central hall. The standout amenity of the master bedroom is the bluestone fireplace, while the en suite bathroom features a jacuzzi tub and walk in shower. Skylights provide tons of natural light. The remaining three bedrooms share a separate full bathroom with walk-in shower on the main hallway.
A short distance from the main house lies a 1800 square foot outbuilding for which the word ‘studio’ does little justice. This large and accommodating year-round space with electric, electric heat and skylights currently houses a painting studio and large art storage room. While there is no running water, there is a septic system previously installed that has not been hooked up, which provides for an easy upgrade of the space if you choose. Next to the studio building is an original two story barn, which in recent years has had it’s foundation re-enforced and a new roof installed. It is currently used primarily for storage. The possibilities for both these buildings are endless. Let your creative juices flow!
The grounds themselves are a fabulous balance of manicured lawn and woody creekside. A picturesque orchard features producing pear, apple and cherry trees, while a fenced in vegetable garden has 5 beds. An additional 14 flower beds complete the bucolic gardens. This gently undulating landscape has been lovingly maintained and provides a beautiful backdrop year round.
Should you ever want to leave this idyllic retreat, the recently opened Farmhouse hotel features a year-round restaurant and bar just a few minutes away. The 75 year strong Callicoon Center Band serves up classic Americana every Wednesday evening in the summer at the bandstand on Gulf Road. The property is also convenient to the thriving hamlets of Jeffersonville and Callicoon and activities on the Delaware River.
