Brownstoner Upstate: A Little Something Extra


    1579 Sawkill Road, Woodstock: $349,000

    This week, we pose the following question: Why be satisfied with just the house and some land? Why not look for a two-fer? Or a three-fer? Or a six-fer? That’s exactly what we’ve done this week on Brownstoner Upstate. We’ve scoured the listings in search of properties that come with a little something extra thrown in, like a guest house, or an extra apartment, or a barn or two. Our offerings hail from Woodstock, Kingston, Copake and Accord. Copake is located in Columbia County, east of the Hudson River. The rest are in Ulster County, west of the Hudson.

    Gorgeous 19th century farmhouse in the town of Woodstock with many fireplaces and wide-plank wood floors. Simple, classic and unfussy.

Is it close to this property? Fingers crossed. Beds: 3. Baths: 1.5. Square Feet: 1411. Lot Size: 8.59 acres. Est. Taxes: $8005.

    416 farm rd copake ny3

    416 Farm Road, Copake: $425,000

    The listing isn’t terribly wordy, but it offers us some key info, like the fact that this circa-1850 Columbia County farmhouse comes with two barns. Granted, they look very rough (otherwise known in real-estate speak as “vintage”), but how great would it be to have two converted barns on the property? Includes 1.7 acres of land in the eastern part of the county, almost to the NY/MA border. Oh, and by the way, the main house is nothing to sneeze at since it’s beautiful and bright inside, and we love the green kitchen. Beds: 4. Baths: 2.5. Square Feet: 2704. Lot Size: 1.7 acres. Est. Taxes: $6002.

    12 Tall Oaks Drive, Kingston: $520,000

    Although located in the city of Kingston, this sprawling Contemporary on nearly two acres of land is actually situated away from it all, right on the fringes of the Bluestone Wild Forest, but still close to everything. So the listing’s description of the property as a “secret paradise” isn’t too far off the mark. We love the grounds, which include a koi pond, lots of lush plantings, walkways and patios. Added bonus for this one: It comes with a basement apartment complete with private bath and kitchenette. Also on the basement level? The wine cellar. Beds: 4. Baths: 3.5. Square Feet: 4262. Lot Size: 1.73 acres. Est. Taxes: $14,129.

    77-79 Mill Hook Road, Accord: $1 million

    This property in Accord might be a cool million, but it’s an entire compound on 19 acres.

Perfect for someone looking to open up their own summer colony in the country. Beds (main house): 4. Beds (second farmhouse): 3. Baths (MH): 4. Baths (SF): 2.5. Square Feet (MH): 2808.
