Nestled in the picturesque Hudson Valley, you'll find a charming piece of history at 26 Allen Rd, Wurtsboro, NY. This 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 1,275 square foot home, built in 1880, is a true gem. Situated on 6.5 acres of pristine land, this property is a piece of local history. Included with the home is the adjacent 0.67 acre plot of land making it a total of 7.17 acres. Originally, this house started as a small farmhouse in the 1880s, and it has a rich history dating back over 120 years. In the early 1900s, it was acquired by the Corcoran family, who used it as a summer retreat from the hustle and bustle of Brooklyn. In the 1960s, a great-grandson winterized the house, making it suitable for year-round living. He called this house his home for the next six decades until he passed away at the remarkable age of 95. One of the most enchanting features of this property is the wonderful landscape. The great-grandson planted eight magnificent magnolia trees in memory of his mother and her seven sisters. Behind the house, you'll discover three varieties of Asian pear trees, which yield an abundance of pears every year. In addition to these pear trees, the property boasts four other pear varieties, three apple trees, a grape arbor, blackberries, blueberries, black raspberries, rhubarb, and other perennials in five garden areas. It's a paradise for anyone with a green thumb. As you explore the property, you'll come across a serene stream that forms the northern boundary, offering both a picturesque waterfall view and a natural pool. Generations of residents and guests have cherished this natural oasis, making it a delightful spot for summer swimming. This property is more than just a house; it's a testament to the enduring love and care of a family that has cherished it for over a century. With its rich history, bountiful gardens, and natural beauty, and a little vision into what you can make 26 Allen Rd with a little bit of handy work, it is truly a place where the past and present coexist in perfect harmony, making it a truly special place to call home.
