Live and work in style in the country

This truly unique building complex, originally constructed in the 1880′s,consists of residential and commercial converted barns. The main house is a modern rustic, post and beam home, with one bedroom downstairs, three loft bedrooms upstairs, two new full baths, living room, dining room, kitchen, office, two foyers, a garage, and a workshop. The commercial gallery, currently used as an artist’s studio, boasts soaring ceilings and natural light, with separate parking, a separate entrance and it’s own heat source. Perfect for the buyer who has a business and is looking for a live/work situation with a high visibility location, close to major highways and has easy access for shipments and deliveries. The third building is a 2-story large garage warehouse space, waiting to be converted into an income apartment, airbnb or guest house. The private back yard has plenty of space for parties and gatherings. The 6 acres of land ascend into a wooded area with potential for construction.

What’s the most compelling thing about this property?

Take a super chic restoration of an 1880’s barn, add a fabulous artist’s studio and a separate two-level warehouse and you have a seamless live/work situation.  Imagine an idyllic country setting yet one that allows you to be on the Taconic Parkway or I-90 in minutes. If you are thinking of bringing your business and your family to the Hudson Valley, here is an amazing and rare opportunity.

For whom is this house perfect?

The house itself is a joy for a family, with a master bedroom downstairs and three loft bedrooms upstairs.  Plus it’s easy to maintain, with state of the art systems and renovated bathrooms and kitchen.  Style plus functionality.  The kids can hang out on the back patio, while adults take their morning coffee in the studio.

What’s the fun thing to do within five miles of this house?

Just minutes away is beautiful Queechy Lake, where you can swim, kaya, and boat.  Within 5 miles, you can be in the Berkshires  and have coffee in West Stockbridge, or in a few more, the village of Chatham with its brewery, restaurants, and funky shops.  Hudson is just 30 miles away.

If this house could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?

In 1880, this property was a sheep farm with a bunch of barns, now converted to cool living and work spaces.  If the walls could talk, it might be about long nights of lambing, and bringing the sheep in at night to protect them from the coyotes.
