The Asa Douglas House
Are you a fan of period houses? Looking for a large updated country home? This historic updated 9 bedroom farmhouse on 28 private acres is located where the Hudson Valley meets the Berkshires. The Asa Douglas House dates back to 1766 and is one of the oldest and most important homes in Stephentown. Built in 1766 with an addition doubling the size of the home thought to be added in 1840. Believed to have once housed the local school in the 1800’s, this light filled home was completely restored in 2011 maintaining its original character while modernizing with high end appliances and finishing touches that appeal to todays discriminating buyer. The main floor features a large working eat in kitchen with a Viking commercial cooktop and twin Jen Air wall ovens as well as a brick pizza/bread oven. The wide board antique flooring leads to the large dining room, living room and parlor. There is a 2 bedroom suite on the mail level en suite with a separate entrance to the home. Upstairs you will find some of the original wall stencils and 7 additional bedrooms including the Primary bedroom en suite with a wood burning fireplace, a guest bedroom with a Juliet Balcony and two additional bathrooms. Sitting on a quiet dead end country lane, the 28 acre parcel offers fenced pastures, a sheep barn, and frontage along the Kinderhook Creek.
