A former dairy farm and home that were constructed by Dutch settlers around 1790 are on the market for $1,995,000.

The 37-acre property, now known as Fallkill Farm, is located at 1598 Jackson Corners Road in the town of Milan. It sits on the banks of the Roeliff Jansen Kill, a major tributary to the Hudson River and the traditional boundary between the Native American Mahican and Wappinger tribes. 

The 5-bedroom, 3.5-bath home still showcases many vintage and historic details, like a beamed ceiling and wide-board floors. It has also undergone upgrades by a family that has owned the farm for more than 50 years.

The kitchen was expanded to include a dining area and adjoin a family room, which features a stone fireplace. And the kitchen renovation incorporated modern, luxury conveniences like a SubZero refrigerator, Wolf range and soapstone counters. The house has also been updated with central air conditioning and a metal roof. 

Here’s a look inside.
