About 610 Keller Lane

Welcome to Bontecou Farm, a true legacy property nestled in the ideal New Paltz location. This fully renovated, circa 1705 compound is sited on a bluff overlooking the Wallkill River, with views of the Shawangunk Mountain range. The pristine 88-acre property is extraordinary, featuring meadows, pastures, vast fields, stone walls, a pond, and fruit trees. In addition to a fully equipped greenhouse, crops such as apricots, cherries, Asian pears, apples, hay, and corn are cultivated here. Multiple mature specimen trees can be found throughout the grounds as well. With minimal ownership in its storied history, this property is a rarity. The historic 5-bedroom, 3½-bathroom stone farmhouse, updated with modern amenities, enjoys abundant sunlight and breathtaking views of both the Wallkill River and Shawangunk Mountains. The brick fireplace provides cozy warmth, while original beamed ceilings and beautiful hardwood floors are a nod to the home's origins. The tastefully designed bathrooms mix antique charm and contemporary comfort with both clawfoot and spa-style tubs. Crisp custom cabinetry, quartz countertops, premium appliances, and exposed stone walls make the kitchen a dream for both the serious and casual cook, functionally and aesthetically. The equally elegant cottage, situated a few hundred yards from the main house, is equipped with a full kitchen, living room, bedroom, and 1½ bathrooms, making it perfect for hosting guests comfortably. There's also a classic Gambrel roof, Hudson Valley-style barn of nearly 4000 square feet, with three-phase electric, which could easily accommodate a dozen or more horse stalls or be adapted for other uses. Additionally, the farm's proximity to New Paltz and Kingston offers easy access to charming neighborhoods, fine dining, and unique shops. The property has also functioned as an ultra-successful, luxe, short-term rental as well as a wedding and event venue. But above all, Bontecou Farm exudes a unique energy that resonates deeply with those who visit. Nestled in a serene riverfront setting, the farm blends historical elegance with modern comforts, creating an atmosphere of peace. Guests of the farm frequently comment on the sense of tranquility and renewal they experience during their stay, often attributing this to the thoughtful design and natural beauty of the surroundings. Beautifully restored and full of character, Bontecou Farm is an outlier in elegance and class.
