Address: 1032 Kings Highway, Saugerties
Description: For the first time in more than 37 years, Black Walnut Farm makes its grand debut on the Hudson Valley’s real estate market. The property is a true hidden gem in Saugerties, where it sits peacefully on 35 acres of open meadows and forested woodland. It dates back to circa 1747, and its vintage colonial design honors the history engrained within its walls.
Inside the 2,548-square-foot country house, traditional details like wide board wood floors, high-beamed ceilings, antique doors, and brick chimneys hearken back to its past in the Hudson Valley. The interior is warm and welcoming, with an open kitchen and living room that invite residents to linger. There’s an original stone fireplace in the kitchen, which also has a rear staircase that leads to the master bedroom with a view of the farm’s backyard. In the living room, an oversized fireplace is a dream for winter days, while the back brick patio tempts homeowners to retreat outdoors in the warmer weather.
Upstairs, the master bedroom boasts its own wood-burning fireplace, along with a spacious walk-in closet. In total, the farm property includes three bedrooms, with one full and one partial bathroom.
On the grounds, the country experience continues with a picturesque 3,032-square-foot, two-story, tin-roofed barn that dates back to the 1900s. It’s ideal for everything from a car collection to an artist’s or carpenter’s studio.
Asking price: $649,500, down from $724,900
Selling points: With ample acreage and space for a live-work setup, Black Walnut Farm is a perfect choice for anyone who wants to work from home in the Hudson Valley. While the property feels secluded, it’s conveniently located near to Saugerties proper, where an assortment of restaurants and shops await. The Rhinecliff Amtrak is 16 miles away and, for nature lovers, both Mohonk and Minnewaska reside nearby. Even closer, attractions like Opus 40, the Saugerties Lighthouse, and the Saugerties Village Beach await for local explorations.
