Just featured in the March 2016 edition of Country Living Magazine! http://www.countryliving.com/home-design/house-tours/g2975/christina-salway-farmhouse-renovation/
Renovated 4-bedroom/plus bunkroom farmhouse located on 43 beautiful acres with total privacy. This house was also featured in the NY Times Home & Garden Section in January 2015 as well as being featured on NBC's American Dream Builders and was designed by 'American Dream Builder' Christina Salway.
The house consists of 1-master bedroom, 2 full-sized bed bedrooms, one bedroom w/ two twin beds, and a 'bunk room' with two more twin beds and a full-sized bed. Professionally renovated home with a gorgeous and very functional, fully-equipped kitchen, three full bathrooms (two with clawfoot tubs and showers!) large dining room and living room, and a play room for the kids to disappear into. Each bedroom is unique and equally charming, filled with hardy antiques you don't have to worry about breaking. The wrap-around porch is the perfect place to end the day and watch the sunset, unless you'd prefer to sit out on the vintage lawn furniture and watch the sunset from the grassy patio behind the house. Every view from the house is uninterrupted and you have to make a truly concerted effort to see another house. Dishwasher, washer, and dryer make this house very user friendly; while the incredible design makes it feel both comfortable and sophisticated at the same time. Wi-Fi, color printer, TV, DVD, and ROKU make this house equally functional for business people and sullen teenagers.

The property offers endless possibilities: 43 acres sprawl across miles of pasture land, perfect for soccer games or football; hike down to the lower fields and you'll find a creek, bridge, and old blue stone quarry! Up past the upper fields, you'll discover a large pond perfect for a quick dip if you don't feel like heading into town for swimming in the Delaware River. Fox Run Farm is the perfect retreat for one or two families, looking for a terrific place to relax without ever getting bored. There's so much to do, that even a rainy day will be packed with fun activities!
We are a very social family (husband and wife, both in our 30's, with a three-year old son and a dog). We love hosting big groups of people up at our farm house, so we've designed the house to be super functional, really low maintenance, and still look great while doing it! 'Wife' Christina is an interior-designer based in Brooklyn, New York, working primarily in New York City, and has had her work featured in the New York Times, on CBS's 'The Nate Show', and on various design blogs like Apartment Therapy and Brooklyn Limestone. Christina was also a competitor on NBC's 'American Dream Builders' reality-design TV show which aired this past spring. 'Husband' John works in film and television as a writer, most recently on CBS's 'Blue Bloods'. Son Julian is 3 years old, and loves exploring the land outside the house and is a particularly big fan of jumping in puddles. John was born and raised in New York City, while Christina was born in Brussels, Belgium, and continued to move around for much of her life until she settled in Brooklyn 13 years ago. John and Christina love working on home improvement projects and have collaborated on two other homes together.
Christina Salway purchased this farmhouse in 2013
The location of this house is what really sealed the deal for us. We already owned our 'dream home' when we found this house, and within minutes, we were in love. The 1/2 mile long driveway provides a kind a magical isolation that city folk like us tend to crave, but the surrounding area has so much to offer that you don't feel like you're sacrificing convenience or charm for privacy. All you'll need is one evening watching the sunset from our front porch and you'll know that you've found the perfect vacation house.
I hate to sound like a broken record, but there is so much that makes our home uniquely wonderful. The location is perfectly isolated while still being tremendously convenient to charming towns and useful shops. It's an easy 2+ hour drive from New York City, which makes it an escape that doesn't have to take days of traveling to get there. The entire surrounding property (all 43 acres) is fantastic to explore-- fields, creek, a bridge, woods, a quarry, surrounding farms, nearby horseback riding, golfing, skiing, water tubing... Really-- the list goes on! And the interior of the house is just as desirable. Spacious bedrooms, spacious living spaces, luxurious bathrooms, incredible pastoral and mountain views, a beautiful, fully-equipped kitchen. All of the details and accessories you want to make a seamless vacation...
All I can say is positive from booking to leaving. The owners, the house, just simply amazing. The house is settled on 42 acres. Great distance to most restaurants/stores. House is clean and well decorated. The owner is a very well know designer. All I can say to the next guest, visit the farm right down the street if you have kids. They were so friendly and gave my son a personnel tour of the farm and the animals. Can't wait to go back!
My family of 4 -- incl 2 toddlers -- had a very relaxing week here. The house has a big airy flow, and we used every room -- to eat, relax, entertain. We had coffee each morning on the porch, enjoying the birds and the light and the view. The apple trees out back were dripping with fruit. The house was clean and stocked with everything we needed and more. The decor is so charming and thoughtful. We loved having chandeliers in the bathroom. All that said, we loved sitting outside best. The grass was super lush and our girls ran around the huge yard like happy puppies. We saw groundhogs, deer, chipmunks, hawks and more. So lovely!
We stayed here with a group of friends and family to celebrate a birthday - the home is beautiful, plenty of space for everyone to sleep comfortably. Really awesome kitchen, we cooked a ton! A great property to explore, spread out, play games. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a secluded getaway with incredible views. Hosts easy to contact with any questions and would be glad to provide any information you may need while here.
There is truly so much to do in this area-- it just depends on the visitor and the day! You can drive down beautiful winding Route 97 to quaint Narrowsburg for lunch and antiquing, and stop along the way in the Hawk's Nest to enjoy hiking and incredible views. Spend an afternoon on the Delaware River canoeing, rafting, or water tubing; and enjoy the scenery of changing fall leaves, beautiful snow covered hills, or spectacular sunsets; depending on when you visit. Have an adventurous day at the Monticello Raceways and bet on the ponies! Sundays in Callicoon are always the best-- when the town is busy with the farmer's market (all year round!) and all of the antique store and yard sales are in full effect. White Lake is a 15 minute drive, where you can rent a boat or eat dinner lakeside at one of their terrific restaurants. Plan on catching a concert at Bethel Woods-- the site of the original Woodstock! Walk down the road and visit one of the numerous picturesque working farms located nearby... Meet cows, chickens, horses, and ducks, and pick up fresh eggs, honey, and maple syrup while you're there! Just down the road from the farm is 'Diehl Me In' where you can spend the afternoon learning to ride horses and exploring the local trails in the area. OR, you could spend your entire visit enjoying the facilities of the Villa Roma-- tennis, golfing, hiking, skiing in the winter, the fitness center, and did we mention GOLFING!! One of the best courses in the area! So many great places to eat, you could spend every evening out, but in all honesty, you're going to want to spend the evenings at the farm house, enjoying the uninterrupted sunsets and grilling something delicious on the BBQ out back. 43 acres of land are yours to explore! The 1/2 mile driveway separates you from your neighbors so you'll have complete privacy during your stay.
