The Skinny: At the heart of this rambling country home in scenic Dutchess County lies a 19th-century farmhouse which, over the years, has accreted some very questionable, if not injurious, additions. But! Inside, rough-hewn ceiling beams and wide planks of the original wood floors reveal the sturdy bones of the core home, and instead of the expected country clutter one finds that some real attention has been paid to the décor, with some sound choices made by the designer—the converted cast-iron stoves that serve as bathroom sinks, for example. Outside nature turns on the waterworks, with five ponds, a stream, and a waterfall spread out over the estate's 268 acres. There's also a caretaker's cabin and several barns to round out the general bucolic vibe of the place, which is asking $2.95M. · 160 Milan Hill Rd. [Houlihan Lawrence]
