The White Oak House is a charming, fully restored Greek Revival house, located on a farm of 95 acres in the rural township of Hoosick, Rensselaer County, NY.
It is fully furnished with country casual antiques. Every room is tastefully decorated with oriental rugs and art work, and multiple windows infuse the house with light.
The White Oak House is available for rental year-round. All seasons at the house are distinctive. In the fall, the vistas of the multi-colored foliage are breathtaking; winter is serene; spring is noteworthy for early blossoms; and in summer nature shows off its bounty.
Surrounded by farm fields and woods, the farmhouse is an ideal spot for the enjoyment of nature. Deer and wild turkeys are frequent sights in the landscape. Hiking, snow shoeing and cross country skiing are welcome activities at the White Oak farm.
A very special walk leads to the astonishingly large white oak tree and a wetland pond and beaver dam adjacent to it.
The expansive sun room overlooking the patio has a brick floor, high ceilings, skylights and hand hewn wood beams. The sun room is furnished with a round table for meals and snacks; a sofa that converts into a queen sized bed; and a roll top desk.
A kitchen, fully stocked with all necessary cooking utensils and dinnerware, has a center island and an old fashioned pantry. A formal dining room with Windsor chairs and a long, cherry table is a pleasurable place to enjoy meals.
The living room is equipped with a large sofa and TV/DVD. The den can be used as an office space and/or an extra bedroom (with its single sized convertible bed). There is a full bath downstairs with a claw foot tub and hand held shower, while the upstairs bathroom has a combination shower and tub.
There are two bedrooms upstairs as well as a room for the washer and dryer. The large west bedroom has a queen sized bed and closets with wide plank doors. The east bedroom has matching single beds.
Enclosed by a stone wall, the backyard patio is a private and delightful place to relax. It is surrounded by historic barns and views of farm fields.
