In the mid-1700s, Johannes Decker built a one-room stone house on his property in Wallkill. That one room is now the dining room and the core of this spacious farmhouse, which along with several other buildings on the property is on the National Register of Historic Places.
The farm — which was purchased by the Decker family in the 17th century — was passed down, generation after generation through the same family line, until 1911. Although many rooms were added on and modern conveniences slowly made their way inside, very little has changed, making this property -— which includes the original barn, carriage house, icehouse, and smokehouse — a rare find.
Expansions including a kitchen, living room, and parlor complete the main floor. A center hall stairway leads to three bedrooms; a second staircase leads to a private bedroom. With a total of four bedrooms and three baths, the house has plenty of room for a large family. The carriage house has an additional two bedrooms and one-and-a-half baths, along with a living room and kitchen.
A tree-lined lane leads you into the 70 acres of historical beauty on which the house sits, complete with two ponds and a stream that spills into the Shawangunk Kill.
