    Homestead Farm

    Built in the mid-18th century by Jacob A. Hasbrouck, one of the earliest settlers of High Falls, Homestead Farm offers the best of both worlds in country living: an immaculately renovated historic stone house on open land with picturesque views, and a central location to all the offerings of the Hudson Valley nestled conveniently between Kingston, Accord, Stone Ridge and New Paltz.

    The property consists of a c1730 3BD 3.5BA stone house, a 1BD 1BA cottage and a cabana. The current owners completed an extensive interior and exterior renovation spanning two years, resulting in a historic home that is both contemporary and deeply sensitive to the building’s character, and grounds that are both expansive and private. Original wide plank flooring consisting predominantly of extra-wide king boards and twelve-over-twelve handblown glass windows offer a glimpse into the home’s storied 300-year history, and thoughtful modern details have been added such as central air and European-style radiators. The home is both comfortable and spacious – rooms are large and the layout offers both privacy and gathering space. The floors have been refinished and the ceilings raised, a rarity in a home of this era. The light filled kitchen is a combination of stone and window and has been updated with new appliances. You’ll find the original hearth in the home’s expansive dining room and gorgeous new built-in cabinetry in the living room. The cozy den and light-filled sunroom opening onto a covered bluestone porch complete the first floor with endless indoor/outdoor seating options. An ultra-private home office was created with new windows, insulation and HVAC, resulting in a comfortable and productive work-from-home space. Upstairs there are three large bedrooms and two full baths. The charming master suite has hand-hewn beams, exposed stone walls, a marble shower with heated floors and new bathroom fixtures by Waterworks. A second washer/dryer has been added upstairs for convenience. The lower level of the home, which the current owners use as a gym and playroom, includes a full kitchen and bath along with radiant-heated floors, washer/dryer and a separate entrance, providing additional accommodation if desired.

    Extensive outdoor hardscape has been added to optimize outdoor living, including the installation of two bluestone patios off the stone house, a custom fire pit and a private seating area overlooking the Falls. After substantial excavation and landscaping, the grounds are now pastoral, yet private. A natural perimeter of over 100 newly planted evergreens provides for long-term privacy screening.

    The tastefully updated 1BD 1BA detached guest cottage is the perfect getaway for family & friends, and can also be used to generate rental income. The cabana, hand-built by a local craftsman, is a wonderful bonus building that may be used as a gym, spa or future pool house, complete with plumbing for a jacuzzi and outdoor shower.

    This spectacular four-acre property is perched atop the Rondout Creek and Falls where the current owners enjoy their own private, breath-taking views of the water. It is also within walking distance to downtown High Falls and local attractions such as Ollie's, The Egg’s Nest and the D&H Canal Museum. Within 15-minutes of the property is INNESS, the newly opened, widely acclaimed resort and member’s club, Arrowood Farms, Westwind Orchard, Mohonk Mountain House and all that Kingston has to offer. Homestead Farm presents all of this convenience in an idyllic setting and is still just under 2 hours from NYC.
