Farmhouse Friday

Farmhouse Friday is how we dream about country living each week.  Speaking of dreaming, let’s look to the very high end: around $1 million.

Hudson Valley: Woodstock, NY

We stumbled upon this house during our last visit to Woodstock during an evening stroll.  Perched on the top of Ohayo Mountain, this 13 acre retreat includes an in-ground pool, picturesque lake, and a separate guest cottage.  At the heart of the main structure, is a 1850 farmhouse.  One of Norm Magnusson‘s contemporary art installations, targeting global warming, is near the property, and there is a small farm where we visited a newborn goat just down the road.

It’s rare to love the bathrooms in old homes, but this balances modern and relaxing. The soaring ceilings and bead board clad walls are a nod to the history of the house.

New England: Portsmouth, NH

I’ve always had a love for the small seaside town of Portsmouth, NH with its quaint coffee shops, ship-lined harbor, and history of gorgeous colonial homes. This 1870 New Englander is literally a dream come true, with original maple wood floors and plenty of tucked away nooks and built-ins.

The open kitchen-dining room and living area with their wood beams and french door cabinets have been featured in nation-wide home decor magazines.
