Fourteen acres is certainly a lot of land, but this “family resort” in Stuyvesant, New York, puts it to great use. To begin with, the 138-year-old barn (which originally housed the horses that pulled blocks of ice hewn out of a frozen Hudson River in winter) has been restored and converted into a thriving house, featuring 25-inch beamed ceilings. feet. Also on the property is a 2,500 square foot studio, walled garden with greenhouse and dining area, 72 foot saltwater pool, and writer’s house, all set against the backdrop of Catskills. It is on the market for $ 2,750,000.

According to the listing, “The property offers panoramic western views of the Catskill Mountains, seasonal views of the Hudson River, and some of Columbia County’s best sunsets.”

The property is approximately two and a half hours drive north of Manhattan, Columbia County, on the banks of the Hudson River.

Built around 1883, the barn is 4,500 square feet. According to the listing, it has been “meticulously restored and refurbished by its current owners to be both an intimate country retreat and a full-scale entertainment space.” The great room alone is 1,500 square feet.

As mentioned, the ceilings are 25 feet and retain the original wood beams. Light wood ceilings and skylights are likely modern additions.

The barn also has a library, a multimedia room, a dining room and an open kitchen.

There are four bedrooms, all with sloping ceilings, and two bathrooms that have been done in a modern-rustic aesthetic.

The 2,500 square foot studio is wonderfully bright and open and is perfect for a painter.

The writer’s house is very cozy but still bright. There’s even a built-in bed for late nights.

On the property is also a chicken coop, greenhouse and outdoor dining area, all surrounded by fields of wild flowers.

But of course the saltwater pool is the highlight of the outdoor space, designed in a contemporary geometric shape, following the natural landscape and overlooking the Catskills.
