Affordability is nice and all, but sometimes, we just need pure eye-candy. That’s why we turn our attention to this Contemporary barn abode in eastern Dutchess County, a hair away from where the borders of NY, CT, and MA meet. It’s pretty countryside up there, and this property offers dramatic views of the Catskill Mountains in the distance. And how good are those views? If they were just so-so, there wouldn’t have been a visual art movement dedicated, in part, to those views.
The views continue inside the 2450 square foot, 3 bed/2 bath house, which was built in 1995 and looks like a spiffed-up old post & beam. We can think of worse things to look at while your washing a breakfast dish at the sink than a rolling meadow view outlined by the distance mountains. Meanwhile, the living room has cathedral ceilings with still more views, and the whole interior is bedecked in wood beams and a mix of slate and wood floors. Also includes a loft, copper roof, radiant heat, and generator.
Lot size is 22 acres and comes with raised garden beds, 800 square-foot stone terrace/deck (we’ve all LIVED in places smaller than 800 square feet, right?), fruit trees, and a potting shed. What’s not to love?
