This historic farmhouse nestled in Kerhonkson, NY, known as Bonnie View, has undergone a remarkable transformation. Originally constructed in 1851 by Luther Terwilliger, this property and its attached barn hold significant historical value in the Hudson Valley’s rich history. After years of being hidden beneath vinyl siding, the farmhouse has been meticulously renovated, revealing its original clapboard siding wherever possible. Sustainably harvested Vermont hemlock was artfully integrated where needed, and the exterior was adorned with historically accurate colors. The addition of three new covered porches and a charming stone patio further enhances its modern appeal. Inside, the renovation exposed a stunning mortise and tenon post and beam structure, infusing the home with character and charm, making it a true gem in the Hudson Valley.

Step into the heart of the home, where the original barn has been transformed into a grand two-story kitchen exuding luxury and character. This culinary masterpiece boasts top-tier fixtures, second-story transoms for added elegance, pristine quartz countertops, a spacious 9-foot island with seating, and a charming sliding barn door salvaged from a nearby structure, leading to the adjacent laundry room and providing access to the stone basements. From here, step onto the enchanting bluestone patio crafted from engraved slabs unearthed during renovations.
The flooring throughout is a harmonious blend of original wide-board heart pine and reclaimed pine boards from 1850’s factory flooring. Even the decking has a unique history, milled from the ramparts of the old Tappanzee Bridge. The firepit, constructed with stones from an old well on the property, adds a cozy touch, and vintage fixtures and details sourced from the renowned Zaborski Emporium in Kingston complete this seamless fusion of Hudson Valley craftsmanship. Pella windows provide both functionality and elegance, while an unexpected folding Pella door system in the living room opens to reveal a stunning back deck and a picturesque park-like backyard, a rarity in vintage homes.
