(PRICE REDUCED) Looking for an affordable rustic retreat less than 2 hours from the city? This charming farmhouse is hidden in the woodsy hills on the eastern edge of Jeffersonville, just three minutes from the Clair Inn and a 15 minute drive over the hill to Livingston Manor and the Arnold House, Boband Farmhouse has been a steady family refuge since 1864. And while the house's original charm is fully intact, it has also benefited from a thoughtful investment in its systems and design over the years. Original wood floors have been cleverly and carefully restored and distressed; exposed beams, warm wood and beadboard decorate nearly every wall and ceilings; a new roof and furnace, as well as updated plumbing and electric, keep everything safe and dry.
A wide rocking-chair porch wraps around the front and side of the house - ample space to set up an outdoor living room to lounge under twin ceiling fans. Inside, a mudroom and coat closet make for an easy entry. To the right of the mudroom is the main living space, set up with comfy seating by a restored, original fireplace, as well as a long dining table, easily accessed from the sun-filled kitchen that occupies the center of the house.
To the left of the mudroom is a hallway that leads to a second living room tucked in the rear of the house. This room was added in 1990, and features a second corner fireplace and warm wood walls and ceiling. Halfway down the hall is a half bath and laundry room.
Upstairs are three full-size bedrooms, an adorable windowed bathroom with clawfoot tub, plus a smaller bonus room currently set up with a daybed. All of the rooms have great light and are connected by artfully restored floors - original hardwood stained, painted and distressed to perfection.
Not withstanding all of the many attributes inside the house, the setting itself is equally soothing. Nearly 2 acres have been cleared for a grassy yard, all of which is surrounded by mountain laurels, hardwood and deciduous trees. Swing yourself to sleep in the hammock, or light the coals on the backyard grill - a perfect place to call home.
Please note Viking stove is not included in the sale.
