Cambridge farmhouse description
The White Oak House is a charming, fully restored Greek Revival house, located on a farm of 95 acres in the rural township of Hoosick, Rensselaer County, NY.
It is fully furnished with country casual antiques. Every room is tastefully decorated with oriental rugs and art work, and multiple windows infuse the house with light.
The White Oak House is available for rental year-round. All seasons at the house are distinctive. In the fall, the vistas of the multi-colored foliage are breathtaking; winter is serene; spring is noteworthy for early blossoms; and in summer nature shows off its bounty.
Surrounded by farm fields and woods, the farmhouse is an ideal spot for the enjoyment of nature. Deer and wild turkeys are frequent sights in the landscape. Hiking, snow shoeing and cross country skiing are welcome activities at the White Oak farm.
A very special walk leads to the astonishingly large white oak tree and a wetland pond and beaver dam adjacent to it.
The expansive sun room overlooking the patio has a brick floor, high ceilings, skylights and hand hewn wood beams. The sun room is furnished with a round table for meals and snacks; a sofa that converts into a queen sized bed; and a roll top desk.
A kitchen, fully stocked with all necessary cooking utensils and dinnerware, has a center island and an old fashioned pantry. A formal dining room with Windsor chairs and a long, cherry table is a pleasurable place to enjoy meals.
The living room is equipped with a large sofa and TV/DVD. The den can be used as an office space and/or an extra bedroom (with its single sized convertible bed). There is a full bath downstairs with a claw foot tub and hand held shower, while the upstairs bathroom has a combination shower and tub.
There are two bedrooms upstairs as well as a room for the washer and dryer. The large west bedroom has a queen sized bed and closets with wide plank doors. The east bedroom has matching single beds.
Enclosed by a stone wall, the backyard patio is a private and delightful place to relax. It is surrounded by historic barns and views of farm fields.

Year Purchased: 1993
About the owner: I am an artist who settled in Buskirk (northern Rensselaer County) in the early 1970s. I was drawn to this area by the beauty of its historic farmsteads. Over the years I became involved in conserving agricultural land and the rural landscape.
Why the Owner Chose Cambridge:
I purchased the White Oak Farm in order to keep it from being subdivided and developed. It is very near my house, and I was concerned about losing the agricultural vistas. I have put the farm under a conservation easement, which means that its 95 acres of land can never be subdivided and will always be available for agricultural use.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Soon after I purchased the farm, I undertook a complete restoration of the house and buildings, concentrating on retaining the historic details. Trim on the windows was replicated and the original hand hewn wood beams in the ceiling on the second floor were revealed. The sun room addition and modern kitchen were decorated with wood beams and wide boards. The patio with its stone wall and the assortment of well maintained, historic outbuildings all enhance the rustic chic charm of the farmhouse. The land is leased to a farmer who plants corn and hay. Walking through the fields to the beaver dam and the magnificent white oak tree is a unique and rewarding experience.
