Property description

Colonial style farmhouse on 16 acres of woods and fields. Close to hiking, skiing, bike trails, ponds, reservoirs, and the very quaint towns of Bovina and Andes. Internet, cable, microwave, cappuccino machine, washer/dryer. Antique/contemporary mix interior with art from friends( I'm an artist and run a gallery in Brooklyn), kitchen is original with 60's metal cabinets, some new track lights, good new stove and old fridge. Upstairs are two bedrooms.One with a queen-sized bed and furnished with grandfather clock and antique dresser. The other upstairs bedroom has children's toys, books, games, and one child's bed. Downstairs is another nice bedroom with a queen sized bed, semi-healthy cacti and nice morning light. Downstairs living room has a fireplace and a sofa bed. There's a patio with a large new Weber grill and rustic table and chairs. Nice place to get some work done in peace or just relax. Very quiet, beautiful valley views. There are about 70 mature blueberry bushes in front, that come ripe in mid to late July, and are incredible. The next door, part time neighbors have a gorgeous, classic barn that is nice to contemplate when drinking martinis in the evening while sitting on the stone steps. Spectacular view of the night sky from the fire pit up the hill is also wonderful, especially when there are comets and owls and coyotes out.

The reservoir is about a half hour away, with swimming nearby at Big Pond, also nice hiking around the reservoir area. In nearby Andes, the Andes pool is free to all , the Andes Hotel restaurant is nice, and there are many antique shops, small clothing stores, and other shops. The town of Bovina is very beautiful, with one general store that serves very nice sandwiches, and a bakery, Two Old Tarts, that has wonderful food. Delhi has a large supermarket, cafes, an organic market, great old hardware store, etc.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I'm an artist and not for profit gallery director in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

Why the Owner Chose Bovina Center, NY, USA:
I love the house because it is a wonderful place to get away from the city, to breathe some incredible air, enjoy the quiet sounds of nature, and generally to slow down. Many artists my age bought second homes around the time I did, so its a good place to find seclusion with the opportunity to socialize in a more relaxed manner with friends.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
There is a fire pit on the hill that overlooks the valley. On clear nights you will see incredibly brilliant skies with occasional very dramatic comets. There is a pond across the street that my son and I like to explore for frogs and salamanders, and the pond further down the road has a beaver dam with ducks and occasional herons. Wild turkey, owls, coyote, deer, rabbits, groundhogs, foxes, grouse, hawks, pheasants are all around. There are bears, too, though I've never seen one on the property. There are about 70 mature blueberry bushes on the property that bear fruit in July/August.
