Converted Post & Beam Barn in Peaceful Canaan, Columbia County, $195,000

With a few tweaks, this converted turn-of-the-century barn in Columbia County could be even more special than it already is. We’d start with the red carpeting and walls, perhaps update the kitchen, swap out the woodstove for a more modern one, and find a way to brighten up knotty-wood interior. But, really, for the price, this a cool find.

The 2100 square foot interior comes with a new frame, three bedrooms, two baths, vaulted ceilings, and large windows letting in a sea of natural light. Staircase leads to a big loft space. Speaking of large spaces, one of our favorite features of the property, located east of the Hudson River in rural Columbia County, sits on over 11 acres of land.

Convenient to the Taconic State Parkway, I-90, and the MA border. Hudson city on the Hudson River is a half-hour away.
