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.
The custom paneling, woodwork, windows and exposed beams were preserved during the restoration. Every room is painted in a unique color that stands out against the beautiful hardwood.
That comfy-country vibe can be felt throughout the home. On the first level, a chef’s kitchen features an eat-in dining space, as well as updated perks like Subzero, Wolf, Bosch appliances and marble countertops. Plus, there’s a working fireplace and pizza oven.
While the original architectural integrity remains, the home has modern luxuries like on-demand hot water and high energy gas furnace. The living room boasts a fireplace and custom reproduction wood windows with imported glass.
The windows let in lots of natural light and provide great views of at least 20 of the 60 pastoral acres. Wide board floors and custom paneling and woodwork can be found throughout the home and in all four of the bedrooms.
This expansive property also has incredible outdoor space that boasts two slate patios, custom stone walls, a custom pool house and built-in pool. While quiet and secluded, the home is conveniently located near two major highways.
