Welcome to Cobble Hill Farm in Taghkanic, New York. This charming farmhouse dates back to 1798!
The home has been thoroughly updated and a modern Great Room was added:
The sprawling 518 acre farm includes tennis courts, stables, private lakes, and far-reaching mountain views, but the house is the real star of the show.
Have a look inside…
It’s not cheap – $6.95 million – but it has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in over 4,500 square feet.
The newer addition doesn’t even try to blend with the late 1700′s structure – but that is okay with me… look at all those windows! Just beautiful!
Can you believe this place is less than 2 hours away from New York City? It feels worlds away.
It appears as though this home is somebody’s summer cabin… you know - the place where all the old, lumpy, unmatching furniture ends up.
It’s a bit pricey for a second home. But I’d think I could handle this as my primary home, if I had to.
My favorite part of the house is the bedrooms:
I’m not a huge fan of knotty pine walls, but in this room, they positively shimmer with warmth.
I actually love all the old ‘hand-me-down’ furniture – it gives the home such an eclectic, timeless appeal.
The estate comes with several large buildings including a barn with room for a dance hall upstairs:
The property is a perfect “horse haven” with miles of trails, rolling meadows, and lush grass.
The holidays are coming so ’tis a good time for pipe dreams!
