This beautiful, well-maintained historic home with 46 acres is located in Angelica NY.

Rich with history, this significant property’s most notable resident was Major Moses Van Campen who built this house in 1809. It’s noted that this dwelling was the first brick house to be built in Allegany County and was built in the most solid and enduring manner. It is quite apparent that a great amount of hard handwork was involved in this construction. This house has been placed on the national register of historic places and is one-of-a-kind.

This home seamlessly combines history, comfort and modern living making it an ideal haven for those seeking the best of both worlds. The home features over 3,500 sq. ft. of livable space and offers 6 working fireplaces, intricate moldings, original wide plank hardwood floors, 2 car garage, blacktop driveway, 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths.

The grand foyer welcomes you into an inviting, bright space and shows off its beautiful open staircase. The elegant dining room with its beautiful chandelier, brick fireplace and high ceilings adds to the beauty of this room, a great place to entertain guests. The kitchen features unique handmade hardwood cabinets made with wood harvested from the property. The kitchen opens to a gorgeous family room with hand-hewn exposed beams, hardwood pegged flooring and a beautiful grand stone fireplace large enough to heat the whole house. Off from the family room is a formal living room with magnificent cherry wood built-in shelving and cabinets. A bonus room off from the formal living room gives you the option to use it as you desire.

As you climb the staircase to the second floor, you will find a generous landing leading to the private master bedroom and ensuite, complete with a soaking tub to relax in after a long day. You will also find two more large bedrooms each with their own fireplace and built-in shelving.

Newer features of this house include: newer metal roof, new oven, microwave, dishwasher, high efficient boiler, 93 gallon hot water tank, and updated electric service with generator hookup.

Head outside to sit under the private covered porch or out on the flagstone patio to enjoy the peaceful grounds on a warm summer night. A beautiful large barn with an internal silo that has been refurbished sits on the property and is waiting for you to make use of it. There are so many opportunities that await you, start a small farm or turn it into a wedding venue.

The property includes several acres of tillable ground that are currently used by a local farmer. The agricultural land has an agriculture tax exempt status. There is a large fenced-in pasture area perfect for horses or cattle. The wooded area consists of a mix of hardwood trees including several Shagbark Hickory trees. Great hunting grounds with established trails and signs of wildlife throughout, and borders over 100 acres of county land. All rights convey.
