Steeped in history, this property's 2.9 acres were originally part of a Lenape settlement, before French Huguenot refugees, descendants of the King's guards at Fontainebleau, built the farmhouse, one of the first French Huguenot Houses in the region, in the 1680s from fir, chestnut and local stone. With two feet thick walls, and eyebrow and gabled windows with working shutters, the farmhouse was built to such strong specifications it was known as The Old Fort. Elegant additions were made during the Revolutionary War and the home came to be named The Depuy-Dewitt House after the prominent families who lived in it. Renovated by an antique dealer and his life partner, the three thousand square foot home's features include massive ceiling beams of fir and twenty-two inch wide floorboards of pine, fir, and rare walnut, elm and chestnut, insulated with jute and hemp rope; Dutch doors; two working fireplaces (one gas, one wood); deep chamfered windows, with light flooding in, and hand-fitted real wood Venetian blinds. On the first floor, a kitchen-dining room; living room; den, or fourth bedroom and full bath; solarium with cathedral pine ceiling; summer kitchen and an outside shower. On the second floor, there are three bedrooms and one full bathroom. The house is approached through wrought iron vintage gates and a winding drive past hedges and lawns.The gardens include stone terracing; meandering brook with three bridges; fenced in garden with a variety of fruit trees; two-hundred and fifty-year-old tulip trees, and evergreen Pachysandra beds throughout the lawns. A charming, pine board and batten clad barn, with fireproof cinder block walls and cement floor could be used as a store or converted to guest and AirBnB accommodation. The property is on the historic route 209 and the neighborhoods of Accord, Kerhonkson, Kingston and Stone Ridge, which are studded with fellow stone houses and a vibrant tradition of actors and artists migrating from New York City. This is a magical property, in excellent condition, which offers new owners a chance to live in absolute comfort surrounded by beautiful details and fascinating stories and has been featured in Chronogram, Early American Life, and Spectrum News, & the Shawangunk Journal all in 2023.
