Folly Farm, built in 1834, embodies the agrarian history of Dutchess County. The fully restored and exquisitely renovated home sits on 200 acres of what was once dairy farmland and now grazes beef cattle. Every added detail, from the moldings to the floorboards, is authentic and honors the home’s important legacy. The library and living room in the original heart of the house offer peaceful sanctuary. An open dining/sitting room is surrounded by French windows opening onto stone patios with views in three directions. This spacious family center leads into the new kitchen/office wing. The kitchen, completed in 2003, is lined with soft-gray wood, full of windows, and replete with top-of-the-line appliances. A full-size fireplace and wide board floors make this room cozy and inviting. This wing includes a spacious office with separate entrance, formal dining room with fireplace and wide windows overlooking a light speckled hillside, full bath, mud room, and butler’s pantry. Upstairs, the master suite with dressing room has the home’s sixth fireplace and is both private and elegant. There are two more original bedrooms with shared bath. A comfortable three-bedroom guest cottage is a convenient spot for guests to be utterly private, yet nearby. Several other buildings include a cow barn, 2 run-in sheds, several barns for either hay or equipment, and the original dairy barn that now sports an indoor tennis court. This expansive farm with breathtaking views, miles of pastureland, an acre pond, and 180-year-old maple trees is surrounded by land protected by conservancy easements.
