1832 Georgian Colonial farm house nestled on 7 acres in Taghkanic, NY and conveniently located in the Hudson River Valley with towns like Hudson, Great Barrington, Hillsdale, Millerton, Tivoli and Rhinebeck nearby.
Our home is situated off the road up on a hill above a pond and small stream. The living room has exposed wood beam ceilings, a large brick fireplace, and is beautifully furnished with a large comfortable down sofa and two leather wing chairs. Charming country kitchen and a dining room with a custom farm table made with reclaimed barn wood over 100 years old, a small reading nook, and wood burning stove.
There are three bedrooms, two furnished with queen sized Westin Heavenly beds and covered in comfortable bed linens. The third bedroom includes two single beds and antique furnishings. One full bath upstairs and a half bath down.
A short walk uphill from the house you will find a 200 year old post and beam barn – a great spot for summer bathing in the new swimming pool. In the winter it’s a great location to sled from! We also have a large fire pit with 8 Adirondack chairs – a great place for roasting marshmallows and making ‘smores.
From this location you are just minutes from Hillsdale, NY, scenic hiking in the Berkshires, antique stores, local artisan shops, seasonal farm stands, and fine dining in local farm to table restaurants. There are also a number of great farms for shopping! A highlight of local attractions in include Copake Country Club at Copake Lake, Bash Bish Falls, the Harlem River Rail Trail, Taghkanic State Park, New Forge State Park, The Hill Rock distillery, and performances at Bard College, Jacob’s Pillow, Tanglewood, and Williamstown Theatre.

Year Purchased: 2010
Why the Owner Chose Ancram, NY, USA:
We've been traveling to the Hudson River Valley since 2000, convincing the parents to purchase a home on Copake Lake. We looked at homes from time to time but nothing really spoke to us until 2010 when we stumbled across this old house and piece of land (thanks to some friends or ours). We had been looking for an old farmhouse with more than just an acre or two of land... this ticked the box. Over the years we've done much of the work ourselves and much of it outside (check out #Taghkanic1832 for photos on Instagram). We love summer upstate and of course the outdoors. This explains why we installed a pool summer 2014! The landscape is quite beautiful and the house sits just perfectly on this land.
