Have you ever dreamed of owning your own farm? Welcome to Maplecroft c.1820, a little slice of farmland in scenic Putnam County and the Hudson River Valley. It is NEW to the market and the first time in 50 years that this unique property is being made available. A grand parcel comprised of 4 buildings all situated for maximum functionality. The main farmhouse is reminiscent of days gone by with its wrapped porch, molding detail, and planked flooring. A cozy stone fireplace adorns the living room and built-ins can be found in almost every room. On the 2nd level, 3 bedrooms plus extra unheated space allow for relaxed and comfortable living. Accessory buildings include a 2 car garage, a caretaker’s cottage and a barn that complete Maplecroft’s site plan. The main house is 2888 square feet and the 1 bedroom caretaker’s cottage is 875 square feet. Surely an opportunity to create your own fully sustainable compound.
It’s the land that you will love because this 4+ acre parcel has so many possibilities. This type of property is a rarity and a very special place to work, play and live! Grow your own vegetables in the prepared raised bed garden and marvel at the perennials, specimen plantings and various deciduous and coniferous trees. Tulips, crocuses, astilbe, grape hyacinth, daffodils, lilies, violets are among the perennials and pear, magnolia, lilac and of course maples are there for your pleasure; the name Maplecroft was given because of the many types of maples that adorn the land. Stroll the 4.33 acres with its split rail fences, stonewalls and an old well house noting the charm, beauty and peacefulness this homestead affords.
The Hardwick family has owned the farm for over 50 years and it is also known as the Hardwick Tree Farm where residents from near and far have cut their own Christmas trees for 25 years! Rows of balsam, fraser, douglas, concolor and canaan fir trees line the back portion of the property from seedlings to full grown trees. A delightful array of beautiful year round color and texture.
The farm is located in the town of Putnam Valley, in the Mahopac School District, with a Mahopac PO. There is easy access to the Taconic Parkway, shopping and public transportation and you will feel as if you are a world away yet so close to all. Come find your inner farm at Maplecroft!
