    Description

    Situated above the surrounding landscape, & offering sumptuous views through its own valley & vistas across the Hudson River, is Historic Clockhouse Farm. Originally built by Abram Decker in 1820, Clockhouse Farm consists of 132 fine acres of lush countryside & woods. Sited on Decker Mountain on one of the highest elevations in Columbia County, it enjoys commanding views reaching across its own broad fields directly up to the foot of the house, where at one time, carriages & horse drawn wagons stopped to read the time of day & enjoy its views. In 1860, the original structure was enlarged in correct style by the second owner, in order to make it the gracious size it remains to this day. This very warm & inviting but sophisticated home has been excellently maintained throughout its long history. Sitting inside, one can view the rolling countryside; feel the area's beauty while relaxing in charm & comfort. There are spacious bedrooms; a large dining room plus family room/office. Just past the dining room lies a sunlit sitting area that comprises the large inviting kitchen. It is replete with Sub-Zero fridge & newly installed professional stainless steel stove. This room, large enough to accommodate 20 guests, has a resplendent view down the farm's valley through rolling fields. It compares to a Van Gogh painting. Many of Clockhouse Farm's most delightful & desirable features are surprising for a home of this period. It is all in the details: the large large home enjoys many original features & details dating back to its earliest construction. There are fine moldings, beautiful wood floors, spacious rooms & unusually high period ceilings which bespeak the success of its original builder. The property has a large storage barn commodious enough to store 8 collector cars or farm machinery. Above this space is room aplenty to build a full sized apartment for employees or a full guest apartment. The property controls all the land within its own view shed. It offers several sites for additional homes should one want to expand the internal footprint. There are creeks & a pond to explore & miles of walking & running trails on the property. An Agricultural Exemption is already in place. The property can quality as Organic. Unlike other locations, there is an abundance of excellent water. The property is half wooded, half open; it abounds in flora & fauna & includes several rare species.
