A converted barn in Westchester County that sits on three acres of land and boasts gardens, orchards, and an in-ground pool has hit the market for $1.35 million. Located in the hamlet of Hartsdale, which is roughly 20 miles from New York City, the property, known as Hillbrook Farm, offers the best of both worlds: sprawling, private green space and easy access to restaurants, retail, and public transit.
A long, tree-lined driveway leads to the restored red farmhouse, which boasts three bedrooms and three baths. While it has been renovated, the home still features original 19th-century design elements like rustic beamed ceilings and unique wood details.
A spacious living room with a wall of windows overlooking the pool and lawns while bringing in lots of natural light. The living area features a wood-burning stone fireplace and sits next to a dining room with unique stone walls and a traditional country-style kitchen.
The eat-in kitchen has lots of counter space thanks to a center island and storage in the form of a pantry. This level also has access to the barn, which has original stables now used for entertaining purposes, storage, and as a workshop, and a deck.
The master suite is located on the second level with space for a home office or nursery. The room is connected to a renovated bath that features a soaking tub and a separate shower.
On the lower level, a bedroom flaunts wood-beamed ceilings and barn doors. It has direct access to the grounds and in-ground swimming pool. According to the listing, this room can double as a pool house as it includes a full bath with a double sink.
In addition to the pool, hot tub, and three acres of private yard, other perks include a massive deck, perfect for al fresco dining and lounging. Environmentally-friendly amenities include a compost garden and solar panels.
