If you’ve ever dreamed of getting out of the city (but not too, too far out), and nesting in a country estate amid rolling hills, White Duck Farm awaits. For $2.95 million, this 240-acre Ulster County estate is just a couple of hours from New York City in the Shawangunk Ridge-Mohonk Mountain Preserve, set back from the road and possessed of rolling pastures, woodlands, a pond, a pool, a party barn and a guest cottage–and a gorgeous, renovated brick Federal-style home (h/t CIRCA).

Just minutes from the amenities of New Paltz and Ulster County, the home at White Duck Farm is the picture of historic charm. Interiors have been remodeled for modern comfort, and the surrounding grounds are made for entertaining. The three-bedroom house features classic architectural details at every turn.

The home’s 240 acres are filled with the perks of country life. There’s a beamed party barn and pool for summer fun, an original smokehouse, two ponds and a row of apple trees. A caretaker’s cottage (or guest house) sits at the entry to the estate’s long driveway.
