An Old-Fashioned Barn Wrapped in a Contemporary Exterior, $549K

There’s more to this Dutchess County Contemporary home than meets the eye…

This is no ordinary Contemporary full of lofty, open spaces. In fact, it was constructed out of an old barn on the rural property. Now that is an excellent way to re-purpose a barn, particularly when it looks as good as this house.

Within the 2,245-square foot interior is the beating heart of the home: A floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. The exposed timber posts and ceiling beams draw the eye upward, where a loft overlooks the expansive first floor. And, a center walkway through the home offers a line from the entryway to the living room to the dining room, leading through the exit onto the outside deck and patio.

Also includes three bedrooms, two baths, hardwood floors, chef’s kitchen, skylights, walls of windows, and double glass doors for all the natural light in the world.

It’s Pool Week on Upstater, so of course this 17.5-acre property comes with an in-ground gunite pool, perfect for summertime fun. Situated in the eastern part of Dutchess, about 45 minutes from Rhinebeck, less than ten minutes from the Wassaic Metro-North station.
