While we may not yet have reached the days of “last chance for upstate under $1 million,” charming and chic getaways in the Catskills and Hudson Valley region are as hot as it gets. Some homes in the region have more than location going for them, and this adorable 1870s Gothic farmhouse is definitely one of those. With a thoroughly modern renovation by an artist resident and plenty of historic charm, the Wappingers Falls farmhouse, asking $850,000, comes with two acres, a basement/ground floor apartment with a separate entrance, and a rustic red barn.

Enter the slate-gray farmhouse into a cheerfully-tiled grand hall that runs the length of the house. Wide plank floors can be found throughout the home, anchoring a stylish selection of color, pattern, texture, and design.

A light-filled sitting room is accented in chic licorice and a riot of colored spots. Adjacent is a formal dining room.

The well-designed modern kitchen counts a wood barn door and clean-lined subway tile among its accents. New appliances surround a large island, brilliantly outfitted in handy pegboard paneling. Here also is an on-trend breakfast nook for casual dining and a floral-patterned powder room.

Upstairs are four large bedrooms–each with its own personality–and a modern full bath. One more flight up, you’ll find an attic with cathedral ceilings above an open, unfinished space.

At the back of the home is a finished basement with a separate entrance. Down here you’ll find living space, a bedroom, a full bath, and a sunny-hued kitchen outfitted in loft style.

Surrounding the house is plenty of outdoor living space in the form of decks, patios and porches, and a fire pit. On the premises is a classic red barn with lofted second-story space–and a chicken coop, ready for a flock of fancy chickens as colorful as the home’s interiors. For commuters, the New Hamburg Metro-North is a mile away from this upstate getaway.
