The deed for this 30+ acre Greek Revival farmhouse and apple orchard at 340 Route 9H in Claverack (a hamlet with views of the Catskills located about five miles from Hudson) has only changed hands three times since it was built in 1842. If you’re looking for a place to grow some roots—and apples—this retreat has plenty to offer. Also known as Miletus Farm, the sprawling property includes a 2,200 square foot home, several outbuildings, a tennis court, and a garage, in addition to the idyllic orchards, which also grow peaches and apricots. The property was on the market last fall for $999,000 and is now listed for a reduced $699,000 with the option of including a three-bedroom caretaker’s house into the sale for a total of $899,000.

Down a long driveway, the main house features a formal living room and dining room, an eat-in cook’s kitchen, a large family room, and a sunroom on the first floor. There are two bedrooms on the second level, with the option of adding an additional bedroom suite on the first floor, according to the listing. You’ll notice original details throughout, including wide plank wood floors, original doors, decorative mantels, and a couple of working fireplaces.

The extensive property has no shortage of panoramic Catskills views, which you can enjoy while snacking on freshly-picked fruit. The tennis court is well maintained, as is a three-bay barn (which you’ll need to deal with the logistics of owning a fruit orchard) and a large garage. The farm is just minutes away from Hudson and about two hours from New York City.
