At first glance, you’ll be drawn to this farmhouse‘s classic colonial facade and beautiful surrounding landscape. Once inside, you’ll love the original architecture and old-time decor. But there’s much more than meets the eye at this Dutchess County beauty. Located atop the historic Quaker Hill and built circa 1700, this home reportedly welcomed four Presidents–Washington, Coolidge, Hoover, and Roosevelt–and Marie Curie was a frequent house guest whose gifted backyard tree still stands today. And this amazing piece of history in Pawling, New York can be yours for $699,000.
The cozy sitting room is accented by original ceiling beams, a fireplace with stone surround, and beautiful hardwood floors, which carry throughout the home. The beams continue into the dining room, where a corner brick fireplace steals the show and french doors lead right into the backyard.
Tasteful teal is used as an accent color in all the rooms, but in the kitchen it really takes center stage. Even more ceiling beams, rustic distressed cabinets, and wooden counter tops mix well with the more contemporary checkered floor and appliances.
The 2,387-square-foot house boasts four bedrooms; those on the upper floors feature charming sloped wooden ceilings. There are also three bathrooms, one of which is extra large and has a vintage claw-foot tub.
The property totals more than four acres and amidst the rolling hills, abundance of trees, and tastefully landscaped gardens, are a pond, a stream, and an adjacent hiking and horseback riding trail.
One of the extra buildings on the property is a cute summer cottage, painted in the aforementioned teal hue. Inside, it reads more bohemian than farmhouse thanks to a wooden roof, white-painted hardwood floors, and pops of colorful, textured fabrics.
There’s also a very large barn, which, thanks to its wide-open layout and built-in bar, is the perfect place for a party and dancing. It could also be transformed into a horse stable. The final bonus structure is a quaint teahouse. To see even more views of this perfectly preserved historic property, be sure to click through our gallery below.
