Built in 1803

Sherwood House, an antique colonial farmhouse on three expansive acres, is one of the most authentic and brilliant examples of preserved architecture in the lower Hudson Valley. Built in 1803 by the Sherwoods, a family of British farmers, the home's significant original details, such as its four fireplaces, wide plank floors, door hardware, 12-over-12 hand-blown glass windows, wooden beams, and stone walls, are all completely intact, and are complemented by all the modern comforts, both structural and cosmetic.The 2,700 square foot main house has a cozy living room with a Jotul wood stove that provides warmth and ambiance in the winter, a traditional dining room, and a library with floor-to-ceiling bookcases, both with wood-burning fireplaces. An enormous eat-in farmhouse kitchen with beautiful antique hand-painted tile countertops and backsplash, professional grade Wolf range, and original wood cabinetry opens onto a delightful sunroom, perfect as an additional dining space. The only room in the house that was completely reconstructed during the home's 200+ years, the kitchen also features historic beams saved from a North Salem barn. A powder room, screened porch, and an entryway mudroom complete the first floor. On the second floor is a primary suite, and two guest rooms with another full bathroom. The attic is home to the house's magnificent built-in loom - a well-preserved relic of early 19th-century domestic life. The three acres around the home are full of characteristic moments, including abundant stonework, mature perennial plantings, easy-to-maintain gardens, and beds of wildflowers and grasses. A 20th-century Saltbox carriage house has an office/sleeping loft, kitchenette, and bathroom, with an oversized two-car garage below, offering plenty of room for a wood shop or other storage.Sherwood House is ideally located on the New York and Connecticut state border, just over an hour from the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The 825-acre Great Hollow Natural Preserve, perfect for hiking, the old Milltown Road swimming hole, and Thunder Ridge Ski Resort are all within a short driving distance. Numerous farms for fresh produce and the train to New York City are also just minutes away. Nearby favorites include Purdys Farmer and the Fish for dinner (in a beautiful farmhouse itself), Folkways Wine for the perfect selection of drinks, LMNOP for heavenly baked goods, Uncle Cheef for world-class Jazz, and the Hilltop Hanover farmstore.
