You’re stepping back in time with this upstate New York property, a colonial farmhouse sitting on three woodsy acres outside the town of Slingerlands (h/t CIRCA). Since its construction way back in the 1780s, it’s been lovingly cared for and restored, right down to the Rumford fireplace and wide-plank wood floors. The interior, in fact, is seemingly lined floor-to-ceiling in wood, while the land outside is rife with trees alongside a pond and barn. And of course, it all costs less than a one-bedroom Manhattan condo, asking $379,000.
The long, open living and dining space is completely lined with wood and feels exactly like a warm, cozy farmhouse should. Even the modern additions stayed true to the wood aesthetic, creating a cohesion between the past and present.
In the laundry room, one of the original fireplaces remains on display.
The 3,126-square-foot home holds five bedrooms and two bathrooms. There’s no shortage of wood in these rooms, either, and all the windows look out onto acres of treetops.
The exterior’s been carefully preserved, too.
Nestled within the three acres of land are a pond, two outbuildings, and a barn. The listing declares this homestead “a peaceful, quiet refuge from the daily grind.” With a wood-lined farmhouse surrounded by woods outside, it’s hard to disagree with that.
