Description: Saw Mill Farm boasts a circa 1790 farmhouse that has been extensively updated and renovated along with a 3,200-square-foot two-story barn that also holds a three-car garage. The property was once a popular saw mill, hence the name of the road on which it is located. It was owned by the Jersey family from the mid-1800s through the turn of the last century, according to listing agent Richard Ellis.
The 3,426-square-foot house has four bedrooms and three full bathrooms. It sits on a 1.47-acre scenic lot with mature trees. New and original architectural and design details include wide-board pine floors, tile work by internationally recognized artist Henry Varnum Poor, brick floors, massive hand-hewn beams in the barn, and a custom-designed kitchen with top-of-line appliances and an adjacent sun porch with a large fireplace.
Asking price: $899,000
Selling points: Amenities include an in-ground pool, private setting close to the 93-acre Davenport Preserve, 100-foot-long sandstone wall, four fireplaces, and tranquil views of an adjoining pond.
Some famous people have lived here, Ellis says, including theater set and costume designer Millia Davenport and Tony award-winning choreographer Michael Kidd. In the early 20th century, local artist Edward Hopper did a pencil sketch titled "Saw Mill in Clarkstown,” arguably of the Saw Mill Farm.
