If looking to trade in the chaotic city life for a much quieter, country one, check out this new listing for a farmhouse in Rotterdam, New York. The Georgian Brick Colonial at 322 Wemple Road, known as the Delamont-Wemple Farm, was built around 1760 and is featured on the National Register of Historic Places. As Curbed learned, the home, sitting on over 60 open acres, includes a custom pool house, four bedrooms, three bathrooms and many fireplaces. And it’s on the market for $1.1 million–less than most tiny NYC apartments.
Just in case a tiny cabin with an outdoor kitchen, a geodesic dome, or a 1950s trailer aren’t your thing, you can still enjoy an unconventional country getaway at a Woodbridge, NY farmhouse where a suite of colorful upstairs rooms awaits.
Part of a fascinating property 90 miles from New York City known as the Outlier Inn, the farmhouse, available on Airbnb, includes three bedrooms (available by room for $125 per night, or you can rent the entire apartment) and a yoga room. You’ll also find sheep, goats, alpaca, bunnies and other sweater-bearing critters whose furry coats (with no harm done besides a haircut) get spun into winter accessories in an on-site fiber-arts workshop space, a full-service recording studio, a greenhouse with seasonal produce for sale and a pond on the 12-acre property, plus a nearby lake, hiking trails and park.
Does the price of New York City real estate get you down? Then consider this: an organic farm nestled within the Catskill Mountains with additions like a pool and art gallery, plus barns, an equestrian facility and enough land to hold 200 cows. And this isn’t just any farm–Charlotte Valley Organic Farm, as it’s called, has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Architectural Digest and this very website for the merits of the modern residential addition built in 1992. So what’s the cost for this unique upstate property? Take a deep breath. The price tag comes in at $998,000 for the house, garage, two barns and 10 acres — the price of many small one-bedroom apartments in Manhattan. For $1.75 million, you get the entire property, which spans 464 acres.
With fall inching closer, thoughts of sitting fireside with a cup of tea have started to fill our heads. And while the city is a splendid place in the autumn, nothing beats taking in the country air and the crunch of leaves beneath ones feet.
Now up for auction is this perfect fall escape (or full time home)—an incredible property located in the town of Amenia in Dutchess County. The sprawling 17-acre property, a.k.a. Meri-Mac Farm, comes with four bedrooms, 8,500-square-foot farmhouse, a three-stall stable, a horse pasture, pool, poolhouse and a separate guest house with two-bedrooms. Another fun bonus? You can claim one degree of Kevin Bacon—and Meryl Streep—who live nearby.
