Storm Lake Farm, as it was known as, is a cherished 18th Century post-Revolutionary War Federal style home, once a portion of the Storm family’s Homestead Farm. Once a 1.5 story home, the main house underwent an extensive and elaborate renovation in the early 1900s, adding another story and steeply pitched hipped roof. A rendering of this historically significant property hangs proudly today at the East Fishkill Town Hall. Members of the Storm family of Stormville, Dutchess County occupied the property for generations and are descendants of Derick Storm, who arrived from Holland in 1662. The 9 outbuildings are tremendous, well preserved post and beam barns with new roofs and solid foundations. A Dutch barn accompanies several other structures once operating as an ice house, wood house, poultry house, carriage barn, wagon & plow barns; along with cow, horse and sheep barns and wash house. In the 1950s, a Swedish Sauna was constructed in one building, along with a more recent blacksmith shop and large automotive garage with 10,000 Lb. lift for antique car restoration. Lake Farm was a bustling Winter wonderland echoing sounds of children’s laughter, sleigh bells and muffled horse hooves in the snow. Many gardens and orchards graced the grounds, and a beautiful old well is found adjacent to the home. The porte cochere served to exit passengers from horse drawn carriages to the secondary entrance of the 3 story main residence with stunning wraparound fieldstone porch and fluted Greek Doric columns. There are 6 bedrooms, 3 baths, modern kitchen, living room with wonderful stone fireplace, large formal dining room, butler’s pantry, study with woodstove, Master Suite, and a working antique Sedgwick rope elevator. There are original wood beams, refinished hardwoods, and in the basement, a classic early American fireplace. The property is walking distance to a 300 acre 18-hole National Golf Course, and is close to Taconic and the Rail Trail, at the corner of Rte 52 & 216. Truly a period treasure, it is seldom one finds a property such as this with it’s expansive barn complex, notable history and favored, preserved architecture.
