Description: The Johannes Decker Farmstead, one of the finest examples of an eighteenth-century Dutch farm, is on the market for the first time in almost 50 years. A drive down the gravel lane lined with stone walls brings you to a private and picturesque world. Lovingly restored and preserved by its current owner, the stone house is beautifully sited on a knoll overlooking two large ponds surrounded by meadowlands dotted with historic outbuildings, including a 1750 Dutch Barn, carriage/guest house, ice house and across the pond, a stone smoke house. A sense of peace and tranquility pervade with stunning panoramic views from every aspect of the property. Upon entering the T-shaped Stone house you experience the grace and proportions of a home that grew over time. First, an expansive foyer with an enclosed stairway to the second story; to the right, an intimate dining room with sitting area and fireplace; to the left a larger dining room also with a fireplace and a living room. Towards the back of the large dining room you will find one of the early additions which formed the house's "T" shape here a private sitting room/office with a full bath and a stairwell leading up to a 2nd floor guest bedroom each with a fireplace. From the foyer, head back to find an updated kitchen complete with a laundry area and breakfast nook. Upstairs are two more bedrooms each with its own bathroom and between them a large garret, currently used as a children’s bedroom and playroom. Throughout the home you will find a variety of wonderful original details such as wide board floors, hand hewn beams, plaster walls, wood paneling and a grand total of 5 fireplaces! Imagine making your way down to the Kill for a swim or throwing an elegant garden party creek side. Come experience this very special place and let it inspire your dreams.
