About the Property
Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Our farm house is very private, set back from the road on 145 acres of property and adjacent to state-owned land. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms and one full bath off a large hallway. On the main floor are a fully equipped eat-in kitchen, living room, dining room (seats 10), laundry, half bath and kids playroom (with board games, toys and videos). We have kept the house simple and unpretentious. It is decorated with a mixture of antiques, original art and family favorites. Renovations include refinishing the old pine floors throughout the house, new windows, plumbing and appliances.
Across the front of the house is a big covered porch with plenty of comfortable seating for relaxing, dining and views of the perennial garden.
Outside, there are two old barns. We have made the upstairs of the horse barn a game room so the kids can play ping-pong and air hockey on rainy days. It also doubles as a quiet space for painting and drawing.
In 2013 we built a swimming pond about halfway up the hill behind the house, with a dock for sunbathing and relaxing in total privacy. There are also 2 1/2 miles of trails on the property for hiking, running, mountain biking or strolling through the fields and woods and observing nature. At night, next to the stream that flows behind the house, you can build a bonfire in the fire pit and watch the stars and satellites above.
We hope our special getaway appeals to you and look forward to welcoming you to Cherry Ridge Farm.

Why the Owner Chose Bovina Center, NY, USA:
My husband Michael and I purchased our farmhouse from a dairy farmer in 1988. We are both originally from upstate New York and instantly fell in love with the Bovina landscape. We were living in New York City at the time and would drive up every chance we got to work on the place. Over the years we have renovated every room of the house, built wide trails throughout the 145 acre property, a large pond, as well as rock walls, perennial and vegetable gardens. Our children grew up visiting "the farm" for vacations and also love the area and all the family memories!
