18 Schoolhouse Ln, Beekman
According to local lore, this rare stone caretaker's cottage was part of a large dairy farm built with stone cement construction and beams, suggesting it could date back to the 1700's. The now adjoining two-car garage with cow bars in its windows was where the cows were kept. One of the two original cow bells used to call the cows back from the watering hole remains on the wall outside the garage. The living room, which is the original part of the house, has wide planked floors and the working cook-in fireplace remains. The ceilings are vaulted with view of the loft which was used as the hayloft. From the living room, outdoor living is enriched with a beautiful Epay wood deck. The wide plank floors continue in the dining room, also with a fireplace, and the family room, which is draped in rich wood paneling. A hard-working galley kitchen with gas range leads to a light-filled mud room. The two full baths are updated with all white tile and glass shower enclosures. The second floor has a very spacious bedroom, a sleeping loft, and conveniently located washer and dryer. Sited privately on 4.3 acres the land is level or gently sloping offering plenty of space for a pool. Conveniently located to the Taconic State Parkway, minutes to golf, tennis, restaurants, and grocery stores. 70 miles to NYC, 12 minutes to New Hamburg Train Station.
This mortgage calculator can be used to figure out monthly payments of a home mortgage loan, based on the home's sale price, the term of the loan desired, buyer's down payment percentage, and the loan's interest rate. This calculator factors in PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) for loans where less than 20% is put as a down payment. Also taken into consideration are the town property taxes, and their effect on the total monthly mortgage payment.
