For cottage lovers or anyone who dreams of escaping to a bucolic country life, this circa 1782 stone farmhouse on 49 acres in the Hudson Valley village of Warwick, NY could be a dream come true. Asking $875,000, 297 Bellvale Lakes Road includes a historic 2,887-square-foot farmhouse, a horse barn, a garage and a workshop. The verdant property offers field acreage that abuts Wickham Lake, plus wetlands, marshes, farm fields and creeks.

The property has been lovingly maintained by the same family since the 1940s. The main house, with its hand-hewn exterior stonework, starts with an open center hall. The surrounding rooms offer well-preserved details from the 18th and 19th century, like wide wood plank flooring.

On the main floor are a charming, spacious eat-in kitchen, a formal dining room, living room, den/office and full bath. A wood-burning stove helps keep the kitchen cozy, and two working stone fireplaces in the living room and den add warmth.

Just outside the kitchen is a bluestone patio with a wisteria-wrapped pergola. This charming extension of the home looks out on the grounds, for sunset vistas across the Warwick Valley.

Upstairs, a central sitting room anchors the floor plan.  There are five bedrooms, each with its own farmhouse decor and personality. There is a full bath here as well.

Outside the main house, a two-car barn and garage with a workshop space and a second floor loft sits on stone circular driveway. There is a two-stall horse barn on the property as well.

Within this country idyll are perennial gardens, a replica miniature laundry house and an artesian spring. The property is served by a newly-drilled well, a new septic system and a backup generator.
