The Rare Opportunity to buy an Architectural Classic and piece of Agricultural History is at hand here in the legendary Catskills Town of Andes at The Artist's Barn! You can imagine the Calico Indians of the Tenant-Farmer Rebellion known as the Andes Anti-Rent War gathering inside this historic 1790’s barn to plot the overthrow of the English Lords of the Landed Gentry.
This is a carefully restored and artistic residential conversion of a cavernous dairy barn into a luxury residence of matchless character. It's muscular, hand-hewn, post-and-beam timber-framing is exposed throughout the now modernized living space. It’s soaring Great Room now anchored with a massive Central Fireplace rising 40 feet to the roof beams! A gracious flow of living spaces, gourmet kitchen, dining room and screened pavilion surround the huge antique-brick hearth and chimney offering an unparalleled experience of Home inside this temple of agricultural architecture.
With wide plank pine floors throughout and 3 bedrooms and two full baths, the Hillside Barn awaits its next owners who will love this unique property as its current artist-owners have.
This barn has many unique features and artistic elements that will thrill the aesthete who appreciates its distinctive and inimitable atmosphere. It is the perfect setting to highlight an art and antique collection or to counter-pose a modernist design statement amid its rustic beauty. The bonus of a retail shop, gallery or studio space at ground level with street-side exposure offers a live-work space and income potential that may interest new owners. As a setting for an Inn or Farm-To-Table Restaurant it’s potential is profound.
The grounds are still more of an incentive to appreciate this very unique opportunity. A spring fed swimming pond is privately set just behind the barn and a small stream and waterfall run alongside the back yard with lovely gardens and sitting areas spread around the property. A large open hayfield and an acre of cropland is perched on the slope just above the barn grounds.
This is a property that truly must be seen to appreciate its many charms. Call Associate Broker Reginald Oberlag now at 917-660-6665 to arrange your own private tour.
