Now is the perfect time to pursue the lifestyle of your dreams. This one-of-a-kind 8.5 acre property is just 2 miles from downtown Saratoga Springs. Currently home to the award-winning Saratoga Farmstead Bed & Breakfast, this unique parcel has so much more potential. Possibilities include using the existing outbuildings that create the perfect event venue or even subdividing the land into 4 building lots. Currently, the B&B offers new owners a highly successful long-established business, a relaxed country lifestyle, an eco-friendly environment and a spectacular owners’ home all just 5 minutes from the vibrant downtown of Saratoga Springs, NY. The 1860’s farmstead is the last piece of a huge farm built by abolitionists during the Civil War and was considered part of the Underground Railroad. After years of neglect it has now been completely restored and renovated by the current owners, offering visitors from around the country and around the world a comfortable home away from home. The property is certified green by Audubon Int. at its highest level - one of only 5 properties in New York State and one of 18 in the country with this highly sought-after designation. It is also a monarch butterfly sanctuary and an Audubon wildlife refuge. The property offers 8 uniquely decorated guest rooms all with private baths. There is a vintage parlor, an open format professional kitchen and cheerful breakfast room for farm to table breakfasts. This area is also used host special events. The farm house is surrounded by porches and decks some in shade and others in full sun all with peaceful country vistas. A laundry room/pantry and a half bath complete the B&B portion of the property. Separate but attached is the Innkeepers home featuring a large chef’s kitchen with leathered granite counter tops and bay windows designed with the flexibility to accommodate a large family event as well as cooking classes. This flows into an office, a studio and a private deck, then proceeds to a spectacular new timber frame addition with an eclectic dining room, huge great room, master bedroom master bath, laundry room and walk-in closet - all with soaring ceilings, oversize windows and custom cork floors. The B&B is surrounded by well-tended lawns, old growth trees, raised vegetable beds and perennial gardens as well as walking paths through natural fields. Also, on the 8.6 sub-dividable acre property is a circa 1900 timber frame carriage house complete with the original cupola and slate roof and wainscoted horse stalls as well as two adjacent barns. This space has endless potential for weddings, commerce, livestock and other venues. The silos with connected storage building provide a picturesque backdrop and have its own terrific variety of potential. There remains plenty of greenspace for yurts, “tiny houses” and the addition of a pond. Please see the attached renderings for our own ideas!
