After years of searching, I've finally found my dream Hudson Valley farmhouse. Now, all I need is $8.5 million to make it happen.

After what seems like a lifetime of dreaming of big city living, I've gone the complete opposite direction in recent years and think a simpler way of life could be the way to go. Get a couple of horses, cows, maybe a donkey? Who knows. I'd have plenty of lands to mix it up. And no one to say, 'no sir, you can't keep that donkey in your backyard'.

I stumbled upon Old Stone Farm in Staatsburg while gawking at other properties I'll never afford. It's a 236-acre piece of land with multiple structures on the property. There are hiking trails and the barn has been used as a yoga retreat. Featuring a biodynamic farm and commercial kitchen, it doesn't get much more farm to table than that.

So when I get the $8.5 million together I'll let you know. I could see that barn space as a cool intimate spot to set up a band.
