Working from home can be nice, but wouldn’t it be much nicer working from home in this 1960s stone Ranch on over 24 acres of land?

If you’re not much for cozy-ing up to coworkers, consider moving your whole telecommuting set-up to the 2,500-square-foot, sun-soaked interior that lies within these handsome stone exterior walls. Forget about small-talk at the water cooler; this sprawling piece of land sits shrouded by trees, with a swimming pond three-quarters of an acre in size as your closest neighbor.

…or by sipping tea or a glass of daytime wine on the sun-dappled deck. The basement level provides still more room to work, just in case someone else telecommutes or attends school remotely in your family, as it comes finished with a family room, a third bedroom, a full bath, an office, and a studio/workshop.

Take full advantage of the summer downtime but taking a swim in the pond, or hoping on your bike/in the car and exploring this picturesque portion of the Hudson Valley. Columbia County is on the east side of the Hudson River and home to Hudson city. The village of Old Chatham is also nearby, as well as the Capital Region, the Berkshires, and the Catskills. Try to stay focused on work, if you can.
