Located less than 2 hours from NYC, this 300-acre farm is improved by a vintage stone farmhouse, three large gambrel barns with accessory outbuildings, and two tenant houses. 143 acres of the property are prime bottomland on the Hurley Flats, situated between the Esopus Creek and the foothills of the Catskills. 150 acres are wooded upland. The upland offers panoramic views to the east across the Hurley flats, seclusion, and good soils with the potential for alternative use such as residential/recreational. It is fully within the A-4 zoning district. Long used to grow sweet corn, the tillable land is now on scheduled rotation for organic production. The soils are of exceptional quality (primarily Unadilla silt loam and Tioga fine sandy loam). 125 acres are leased for cultivation, providing income for the ag exemption. 18 fenced acres have been set aside for vegetable production or alternative use. Versatile barn configuration is suitable for farm market, livestock, or creative re-purposing. The historic Ten Eyck - DeWitt stone farmhouse, built in 1750, has been upgraded with a new cedar shingle roof and galvanized gutters. Suitable for a large family, farm-to-table B & B or restaurant, its 4000 SF of floor space include 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, a formal dining room, den and library. Among its features are two massive stone fireplaces, 12 over 12 antique glass windows, hand-hewn wooden ceiling beams, wide-plank floors, and scenic views of the fields. The terraced brick backyard features an in-ground pool and a gazebo. Minutes from Exit 19 on the NYS Thruway, this historic farmstead sits at the entryway to the Catskills, offering easy access to Stone Ridge, Woodstock and New Paltz.
