Brand-New, Energy-Efficient Barn, Hand-Crafted by Catskill Farms, $699K

Perched on 22 acres of prime Ulster County land, this modern take on a classic barn is Catskill Farms’ 160th home…

…and, it’s engineered to be as energy-efficient as possible. Enhanced insulation, high-efficiency furnaces, on-demand hot water heaters, and heat pumps in place of oil/gas fuel are standard in Catskill Farms’ constructions, and this barn offers all of the above.

That doesn’t mean, however, that Barn 24 is all substance over style. The four-bedroom, 2.5-bath barn comes with a clean, contemporary look, starting with the open-concept first floor complete with cathedral ceilings and floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace.

Salvaged and locally-harvested wood and bluestone feature prominently in this home’s construction, and modern touches like cable railings blend seamlessly with nods to the past, like hand-made barn doors and farmhouse plank flooring.

Meanwhile, both baths and the kitchen have been fitted with simple, functional fixtures, as well as subway tile and wood floors throughout.

Barn 24 is situated on an expansive swathe of land in western Ulster County near the northern border of Minnewaska State Park. This is the gateway to the Catskill Park, which consists of 700,000 acres of forever-wild land spread out over three counties, where nature-lovers can partake in miles upon miles of hiking trails, fishing and hunting opportunities, waterways, bird-watching, and view-basking.

Or, you could sit back and enjoy all that outdoorsy goodness from the wrap-around deck and screened-in porch of a brand-new barn, your new Catskill Farms home.
