I often wonder if I had a Million Dollars to spend on a house which kind of house would I buy? I have to admit I am a sucker for the oldies but goodies and "The Old Fort" for sale in Kerhonkson fits in that category.

Also known as the Depuy-Dewitt House 6881 Route 209 in Kerhonkson could easily be one of the oldest houses in the Hudson Valley, maybe even the state. Close to all the places people love to visit, this place would make the perfect home for anyone hoping to be close to things but not in the thick of it. There is a barn on the property that could become an Airbnb.

It isn't often that you get the opportunity to buy a house with so much history. The house is surrounded by almost 3 acres and reportedly is part of the original Lenape settlement. The house's two-foot thick walls and two working stone fireplaces are classic architecture for that period. Its revolutionary war period additions make it special too.
