At the end of a long dead-end road and surrounded by acres of pastoral countryside lies Laurel Farm. Located in Patterson, New York, just sixty miles from New York City, this farmhouse is an expansive and beautiful homestead that boasts both comfort and historical charm.
Constructed in 1815, this farmhouse is located on a 12-acre property that was once a 19th-century dairy farm. As such, the land not only boasts a large country home, but also a caretaker's cottage, a pond, and a lofted barn that provides an excellent entertaining space.
This updated farmhouse was modernized in order to preserve all of its historic value and character while improving its functionality and modern-day comforts. This country home now boasts new windows, heated floors, and much more.
One such modern comfort is the in-ground salt water pool surrounded by tranquil woodlands. Can't you just imagine relaxing, poolside, with a tall and cool drink in your hand?
This living room features wide plank hardwood floors and floor-to-ceiling shelving for holding one's library or collection of heirlooms and antiques. It also includes one side of this home's unique double-sided fireplace.
The dining room in this gorgeous country home features the other side of the double sided fireplace, which has been noted by the local historical society. It also includes rustic, hand-hewn exposed beams across the ceiling, which only adds to the historic character of this home.
The kitchen in this home maintains effortless, simple style while also featuring all the modern appliances and conveniences one could find in a modern home. Perhaps one of the best features of this country kitchen is the ample amount of counter space that can be used when cooking large holiday meals or entertaining.
The wood paneled walls and brick-surrounded wood burning stove in this room gives it a rustic, cozy charm perfect for snowy winter nights.
Even the bathtub in this crisp downstairs washroom is paneled by wide hardwood accents, tying this room's decor in with the rest of the home's sweet country aesthetic.
One of the bedrooms located on the second floor of this home features part of the original brick fireplace, making it a completely unique and charming space. The exposed hardwood beams, a hallmark of country farmhouses, further enhance the warm and rich aesthetic of the home.
A downstairs sitting room, furnished nearly entirely in gleaming hardwood, provides yet another relaxing spot within this home to curl up after a long day and enjoy the views of the home's property. With views of acres of historic stone walls, fields of wildflowers, and peaceful forest, who wouldn't want to wake up to such a beautiful view?
