About 421 Fair Street

Welcome to the Fields House, circa 1760. Once a working dairy farm and apple orchard, the 3,700 square-foot home has been lovingly preserved over the generations, maintaining its architectural authenticity with 3 working fireplaces, exposed post and beam ceilings, and original 16-inch plank floors. The home exemplifies the quintessential features of Hudson Valley's historic architecture. The living room features hand-stenciled floors, exposed original beams, and 18th-century built-ins that surround a J tul wood stove and mantel. Two French doors open onto the west-facing porch where sunsets provide a perfect evening backdrop. An original beehive oven compliments the hearth in the side sitting room. The kitchen centers around a working ice box from 1918, which has been in the same location for over a hundred years. The upstairs has 4 bedrooms, including a large guest wing. The primary bedroom features a working fireplace, chair railing, and original heart pine floors. Original 12 over 12 windows look out over the home's 4-acre property, which features native perennial gardens, a quarter-acre pond, waterfall, and artist's studio. The Fields House finds the perfect balance between historical integrity and modern amenities. The home has an ultra-efficient geothermal heating and cooling system, sustainably eliminating the need for fossil fuels. The home is ideally located just over an hour north of Manhattan, and only minutes from the scenic Metro North Railroad at Southeast station. The Appalachian Trail, Thunder Ridge Ski Area, Hudson Highlands, and numerous fresh produce farms are only a short drive away.
