Featured Listing-Bovina Greek Revival
A Historic Greek Revival farmhouse on 211 acres in the Mountain Brook Valley of Bovina, NY. The c. 1845 farmhouse embodies many architectural elements of the mid-19th Century with pairs of columns and pilasters flanking the front entry, six-over-six windows, decorative eave brackets, and frieze band windows.
Located on a town maintained, dead-end road, the house sits prominently on the hillside with stunning views of the valley and Mountain Brook. It has been lovingly preserved and features 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, two home offices, a study and home studio. A generous living room has decorative trim and painted floors with a wonderful patina. The home offices on separate floors have views over the valley. The dining room offers dual entries to the kitchen, as well as access to a full bath and linen suite. A large eat-in-kitchen is flooded with natural light and is anchored by a Pioneer Maid wood cook stove. There is also a six-burner Aga range, Bosch dishwasher, soap stone countertops and plenty of room for a farmhouse table. The refrigerator is located in an adjacent dry pantry/mud room. An original wood storage room has been converted into a large studio with cathedral ceiling and exposed hand-hewn beams. Additionally, there is a Dutch door that leads to the terrace with an automated sun awning. Upstairs are four bedrooms and one full bath. The bedroom under the gabled roof includes a large walk-in closet. Two bedrooms feature frieze band windows and original wide-plank pine floors. The third bedroom is located adjacent to the second floor study and back stairs which lead to the kitchen. A 1,400 square foot blue stone terrace across the back of the house has a panoramic view of the entire valley. The three-story dairy barn is located across the road. Another two story “party” barn was recently renovated and is adjacent to an apple orchard and six dry stacked stone planting beds. A detached, two-car garage and additional parking pad are located next to the home. And all only minutes to Russell’s General Store, Brushland Eating House, Bovina Fermentory & Bovina Montessori. 2.5 hours from the GWB!
