Hall Christy House, 5 Meeting House Road, Pawling NY, Peter John Hall, Dutch house

When the current owners of this 18th century Dutch saltbox bought the home in 1986 they were only the second family ever  to own it after the original builders and their ancestors. But they did make one little change–they moved it to a nearby piece of property. At the current location, they completely restored the 1747 Dutch vernacular-style main house, known as the Hall Christy House, and rebuilt the existing ca. 1750 Dutch gambrel home, called the Skidmore House, turning it into a garage and guest house.

In addition to restoring and preserving the two beautiful historic structures, the owners also added to the 5.3-acre property impeccable landscaping, a lily pond, herb and vegetable gardens, a brick courtyard, a charming gazebo and a free-form pool resembling a natural lagoon. And now that they’ve completed all this hard work, you can own the stunning Hudson Valley property for $1,495,000.
