The area was originally owned by Nicholas Emigh; it was called "Bocke Bush" or Beech Woods. Emigh eventually settled in the town of Beekman, where larger farms were available. The house later came into the possession of the Fredenburg family, before being purchased by the Livingstons.
It was built about 1716 and is a 1 1⁄2-story, rectangular, gable-roofed farmhouse built into a slight hillside. It is an example of 18th-century regional vernacular German architecture. The garret level contained a domed section of the chimney that served as a meat smoking chamber. It was acquired as a dependency for Grasmere, as did the Benner House and Steenburg Tavern, by the mid-19th century.
