Tucked away off a lovely BOVINA winding country road . . . on its own HIDDEN 18 ACRE SETTING with 3/4 acre spring-fed swim pond, stream and BREATHTAKING MOUNTAIN BACK-DROP . . . sits this ONE-OF-KIND ORIGINAL FARMHOUSE, dating back to the Anti-Rent Wars of the mid 1800 s . . . lovingly reworked, curated and augmented . . . yet keeping its genuine RUSTIC CHARACTER and integrity intact! The entertaining hub of this home is the 29 x 15 ANTIQUE PEGGED POST-AND-BEAM KITCHEN, with south-facing wall of salvaged stain-glass windows . . . inspired by the Woodstock handmade houses of 1960's. Curated treasures are the cornerstones of the room, including: 4-OVEN AGA PROPANE STOVE - the heart of the house - imported from England, rebuilt here; 18 foot antique counter from a Schenectady general store with a 5 foot wide ANTIQUE APRON-SINK and lower open-storage shelves; antique lighting fixtures; and big rough-hewn FLOOR PAVERS OF LOCALLY SOURCED BLUESTONE. Adjacent to the kitchen, is an OPEN ANTIQUE-BEAMED GATHERING AREA with striking see-thru shelve dividers, WOODSTOVE and mahogany glass-inset barn doors leading to the COVERED PORCH, with private Arcadian eastern views across the pond and mountains beyond. The main level rambles on to include: a HUGE OPEN CATHEDRAL-CEILING MASTER BEDROOM with an entire windowed east-facing wall, own soaking free-standing CLAW FOOT TUB, woodstove and private door to the garden; a second LIVING/LIBRARY ROOM with original stone fireplace (w/ WOODSTOVE insert), tongue & grove knotty-pine wainscot detail, built-in artistic cubicle display-shelve wall/window unit and windowed views to the east and west; and . . . BATHROOM with salvaged kitchen sink, SUBWAY-TILED SHOWER, antique built-in garage tool cabinet and octagon tiled floor. UPSTAIRS IS THE SLEEPING LEVEL with plaster & lath ceiling, 3 additional bedrooms and 2nd bathroom with antique claw-foot tub. THE SINGULAR CHARACTER AND RUSTIC ORIGINALITY OF THIS HOME IS JUST AMAZING! The property is just as noteworthy as the farmhouse . . . with fields, meadows and woodland on all sides surrounding the house and pond . . . plus a huge, three-story, VICTORIAN BARN with charming chicken coop and small-rustic, INSULATED HEATED OFFICE WITH ELECTRICITY. On an everyday level, there is a new engineered septic system; new oil-fired furnace for heating/hot water system; new 475 well; new windows throughout; new walls and steps; new French-drain system; upgraded insulation; new electric panel boxes; co-op electric service . . . plus, FIOS INTERNET and CELL SERVICE! Because of its astonishing beauty, this property has hosted countless PHOTO SHOOTS AND MUSIC VIDEOS!
