23 acres Farm with House and Barn in Greene NY 280 County Road 9

Turn-key farmette with house, barn, pond, fields and more land available in Greene NY.

This property is exactly what so many buyers are looking for and it is affordable!  The house, barns, outbuildings, and land are all in excellent condition and ready to be enjoyed as-is or remodeled to your satisfaction.  The attractive spring-fed pond is a gem that can be stocked.  It is large now but could be easily made larger or make several ponds and start an aquaculture business.  Raise  livestock or stable and pasture your horses.  Good soil for your home gardens and orchards.  Continue to have the local farmers plant, or raise your own crops.  The 36 x is 42 post and beam 2000 bale barn is in fantastic shape, solid and square and such a rare usable size.  This barn is attractive and easy to maintain.  Beginning in the 1800s and I am told, up until the 1950s, the farm family that lived here probably had under 10 milking cows, a few horses, perhaps some sheep or goats, ducks and chickens of course.  Today, if this same barn sat on a 24 acre lot in the Catskills it alone would sell for the price of this entire farm with existing home.  Ask some local Amish how much it would cost to build a barn like this today and I’m sure you will be surprised.

The other useful outbuildings are a 24 x 14 tool and carriage shed next to the barn, a 20 x 50 wooden shed that once most likely housed chickens, a 20 x 20 block machine and tool storage building and a 24 x 32 two car garage.  The back of the garage has a partitioned off room that appears to me a hired mans apartment, a small kitchen area and a bathroom with plumbing, as-is of course, but it looks like it could be refurbished.  Do your canning here or just use as a wash room on your way from the barn or garden to supper.  This property presents so many opportunities and conveniences for those who relish small farm life.

The house interior has a lot of character and charm.  Large enclosed three season rear entrance that can be reached by car and accessible with one step.  There is an attractive Fireplace room addition.  Owners use propane but it is a fireplace designed for wood burning.  There is also an old wood burning cook stove that the owners still enjoy using.  Currently no bedroom on the 1st level but two rooms that could easily be converted to bedrooms and they have functioned as such in the past.  Finished chestnut trim is intact throughout the original home section.  All is solid and could be remodeled if so desired.  Plenty of storage area including a staircase walk-up to an insulated attic room.

This great little farm has been in the family forever.  The owner was born here.  It’s hard to say goodbye to a lifetime of memories but she feels it is time for her and her husband to move on.  The entire parcel is 85 acres.  This sale price is for 24 acres (approx 20 acres of tillable ground and 4 acres of home site buildings, pasture, and pond).  The 60 acres they are keeping (unless made an offer they can’t refuse) is comprised of a 40 acre managed woodlot, 10 more acres of tillable and 10 acres of pasture or brush land.  The owner’s husband is a forester, experienced in practicing forest management but to date he loves his woods so much he has not cut any of the marketable hardwoods and has no intentions to do so.  Call today for your appointment.  You will be glad you did!
